Little Changes - Seasonal Sundays # 129

Seasonal Sunday Teapot copy

Welcome to Seasonal Sundays.

Christmas Prep 094

In general I tend to seasonally decorate my home in a very similar way from year to year, with of course a little change here or there.

Christmas Prep 089

Well, when you redecorate a room, those tried and true decorating methods of the past aren’t necessarily going to work.

Christmas Prep 100

As you may recall, this past year I redecorated my dining room. If you missed it, you can check it out here.

Christmas Prep 104

So this year, the dining room needed some changes in Christmas d├ęcor. I’m such a traditionalist, sometimes it’s hard for me to change it up, but I’m loving my new grove of mercury glass trees.

How are your preparations going?

I do the same honey, I decorate with my same things, except I kinda change their place here and there, but mostly this is how it usually looks the C'mas season. Loving the new dining room change and the decor, specially the lovely mercury glass trees. I still need to finish my kitchen and my Nativity is almost ready. My contribution to the great Seasonal Sunday party is a home C'mas tour1. Thank you for hosting and Happy Holiday Season.

Your new dining room is really pretty, and I love your mercury glass trees and gorgeous ornament. I, too, have a hard time changing things up; I don't really do trendy. :)

Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful weekend.

I truly appreciate you hosting each week ;o) The mercury glass is a nice addition to your new look.

lulumusing said...

Mercury glass accessories seem to be very popular this year. I notice Pottery Barn has quite a lot so it might be a good idea to watch for after Christmas sales and add to your collection.

Cottage and Broome said...

I like your new trees! I don't chance the decorating a whole lot form year to year either, too expensive. But it try to tweak and rotate things a little. Thanks for hosting, Laura

Eileen said...
