• Thank you, Princess FZB!
      I can tell you exactly how long… From when I woke Sunday to a point just after lunch when a friend dropped by, grabbed the last sparkling globes from my hand and started rearranging. I think a lot of the credit has to go to her. Have a wonderful holiday! xox, V

    • Bauble-rama, of proportions that required a ladder! It’s a once a year ritual that I find wonderfully quiet, like knitting, and come the New Year I can’t wait to get rid of it and I want to redecorate, re-drape, and re-upholster the entire living room in shades of pale blue, chocolate brown, and cream. One of these day… 😉 .

  1. Holy canoli, that tree came straight out of Casting because it is PERFECT. And just beautifully decorated. The red glass ornaments look happy this year…

    • The light just made those red shiny brights POP. The tree has a little crook at the top that gives it a little Grinchy cockeyed aspect, which makes me love it all the more. A big ‘ole holiday kiss for you, Ms. Grand Bisous!

  2. It’s lovely–it looks so perfect. (I want to see every ornament up close!) Pale blue and chocolate brown was the colour scheme I chose for our current apartment. California Paint’s Historic Colors of America has a stunning vintage colour selection… you know, in case you decide to do some paint shopping. (Every time we use one of their colours we’re just amazed.)

    • Your wish will soon come true, I think Christmas Eve. Seriously, it’s funny you should say that because this morning I was peering at the tree and trying to get good close-ups with my little camera phone! But not every ornament… You are my muse today! Thanks for the paint tip!
