More Uses!

You can put extra Christmas ornaments in a dish like this. Just stack the ornaments together and enjoy their reflective beauty. The "dish" that holds the ornaments is actually an old glass lampshade. I found this pedestal somewhere and set the lampshade on top of it. It makes an adorable fruit dish or potpourri dish too! But for this season it's gonna hold a few balls! At least until I think of something else I want to do with it. The tree reflecting in the mirror is the keepsake tree. I need to see if I can get a good photo of it to show you sometime.
Is everyone scurrying around today to cook and clean and "fix all the fixins'? Just pretend you're playing house and have a ton of fun!
Love, Rachel

What a great idea with the ornaments, Rachel. I love the whole vignette you've got there and that tassel, very cute ;)
Happy Thanksgiving (again), Rachel... okay, I'll try to pretend I'm playing house!
Enjoy from me house to yours (wishing it was closer)

Thank you for all the lovely Christmas ideas. Happy thanksgiving today too! When I have to clean house, I imagine that someone really important coming to visit - the Queen of England, Martha Stewart and so on - and then the tidying, scrubbing and dusting becomes fun!
