Vignette 2010

It’s simple and straightforward.  I have other little spots around the house that are more creative or elaborate or impressive.

But this little scene is everything I love about decorating for the holidays.

A silver Pottery Barn candlestick – a thrift store steal at $1.  A beautiful large basin  -- also a thrift store steal at only $2.  Pinecones from the yard, with a select few painted gold.  A baby poinsettia from the market.  And my all-time favorite scent from Yankee Candle filtering through the house.

Every time I walk by the piano, I smile.  This, to me,  is Christmas at it’s finest.

See you over at Rhoda’s for Link Up Holiday Party Part II.

Hi, Monica, you are so right! Just simple touches like this are just perfect for Christmas. Simple, elegant, speaks volumes. So glad you linked up to the party.

And I'm really thrilled that you thrifted the candlesticks & bowl. That rocks!

Love it! Every greenish pineish scent at Yankee sends me into horrible headaches, though. Weird. I smelled one a few weeks ago that they only had available in HUGE size that was chocolate mint something or other. I could have licked it.

Sometimes, the simplest of things makes a big statement. Those are nice thrifted finds for your pretty look, too.
