Shiny and Brite Tree

I love Shiny Brites.  The colors and shapes are like candy to me.



I found this little fence at the thrift.  It was originally red and green but I think it looks much better white after a few coats of spray paint.  I am not sure if the polka dot fabric is staying.  It was another thrift store find.  I've got to get busy wrapping some presents to put under the tree.



Most of the ornaments I used this year are balls with a few bell shaped and figural ones.



Thanks for taking a tour of my Christmas tree.  I've got a few more decorations to show you if you aren't tired of seeing Christmas decorations.

I wanted to share with you this beautiful belt buckle I won in a giveaway from Cindy of Lilly's Lace.  Thank you Cindy! She hand made the buckle from pieces of vintage jewelry and bling.  She is quite the talented artist. I absolutely love it.  It is shiny and bright, kinda like my tree.

Love the shinybrites on your white tree! And the polka dot fabric underneath compliments the look of the round balls on the tree. So fun! I have some vintage sb's that were left in a box at my late FIL's house. No one else in the family wanted them and they were going to throw them out. No way! They came home with us.

Your tree looks great, Danielle. Christmas doesn't seem like Christmas without Shiny Brites.

And I absolutely LOVE your blog header. Those Christmas pins are such fun.

I love your ornament collection and the way the white tree makes everything "pop". What about white tulle snowdrifts underneath.

Love your tree and that belt buckle they are so beautiful, all that lovely colour! The bird on your tree is just like one l have :-). In Norway we don't put our tree up until the 23rd dec. But seeing your tree makes me want to put it up a bit earlier. Hope you have a lovely weekend, blessings Pam

Your tree is just gorgeous! The shiny brites look fabulous on the white tree. I like the polka dots, they add another element of whimsy.
Great job!

I was impressed by your mantle, now your tree....what's next? I've always been a fan of the classic ornaments like yours, and they look wonderful on your white tree!

Diane said...

I love your tree and the Shiny Brites. They show up so beautifully against the white tree. The fence - it's amazing what changes you can make with a can of white (or in my case - vintage white) spray paint. Love the belt buckle, too. Hope you're having a Merry Christmas season. Diane

Cheryl said...

Your tree is fabulous! Oh my, that little fence is a terrific addition. I would have snagged that up myself had I come across it. Score!
big hugs,
Cheryl
