Christmas Tree and Snowflakes

This isn't really  a craft, but I wanted to journal this years decorations.

Christmas Tree 2014...it was suppose to be 8 feet, but is really more like 6.5 feet.
The snowflakes are part of this years Snowflake Blizzard.  (Here is the blizzard from two years ago.)

Mantle...


This is a neat little candelabra I purchased at a yard sale for $2.00 last summer.  It was a 1955 wedding gift and is silver plated.  The silver plating was scuffed and coming off when I found it, but after I took it apart and cleaned it up...it was beautiful!!  I was going to put some small candles in it, but instead I found a string of seed lights and placed them all helter-skelter and the effect was really fun...


Glass block was made with a decal I found on Etsy and is filled with twinkling lights I found on Ebay!  If I had this to do over, I'd mask the front of the block with a matte finish or contact paper and then place the decal.   

May the joy of the season surround you and yours.  

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year,
