Hello my friends! It’s tis the season time again and I’m so thrilled to be joining my dear friend Jann Olson for her Creating Christmas link party which begins today right here on my little blog.
So Welcome to my home as I share my love of ‘SILVER AND GOLD’
(at the end of this post will a place for all of you to link up your silver and gold Christmas decorations, projects, or outfits)
“Silver and gold, silver and gold
Ev’ryone wishes for silver and gold
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth
Silver and gold, silver and gold
Mean so much more when I see
Silver and gold decorations
On every Christmas tree.”
This has always been one of my favorite Christmas songs. I remember even singing it as a small child, and most likely because of the silver tinsel that always hung from our tree.
My mother always let us help with the decorating of the Christmas tree and I was one of those children who took great pleasure in doing so. I would spend hours making sure every little ornament and piece of tinsel was carefully arranged and re-arranging after my siblings left their mark (haha).
As the years have past, I still have that great love for silver and gold and although I have redone many different themes on Christmas trees I have always kept one of silver and gold.
This one has its home in our main living room . . .
It’s carefully decorated with homemade bows tied with silver and gold yarn . . .
miniature gold wrapped gift boxes . . .
ornaments I’ve collected over many many years . . .
as well as many fond memories.
The silver and gold theme is carried throughout this portion of our home . . .
With glittered branches on the piano . . .
to our nativity scene . . .
with the mirror display . . .
a treat station . . .
a cozy blanket,
And of course the dining room table . . .
with silver charger plates and white gold rimmed china . . .
You could use a miniature gold and silver frame as place cards or
write their names on an ornament and carefully place it one each place setting.
Then we have the tablescape of silver and gold.
As I celebrate this season you may possibly find me slipping some of that silver and gold into my wardrobe . . .
Sharing this over at Patti’s for visible monday
And since I do have my fur on I’m joining the lovely Catherine at (notdressedaslamb)for “i wear what i want challenge”.
It’s very true, silver and gold can’t be measured by wealth, but only in the pleasure we find and give here on earth.
As always my friends thank you so very much for dropping by. May you have a wonderful day.
Now it’s your turn to share and please do! This post will stay open until Christmas Eve so come back as often as you wish and be sure to visit Cecillia tomorrow from my thrift store addiction for her love and ideas on thrifting Christmas.
