Talk to the hand!
Does anybody remember that old phrase?
This is one huge ceramic hand! It’s an authentic ceramic mold used by a New Jersey manufacturing company for the production of men’s and women’s gloves. The hand was a purchase at the French Hen Farmhouse fall sale back in October. I found a smaller one at the Christmas sale yesterday, but haven’t set it out yet.
This vignette on top of the entertainment center very simple- I just took a square sea grass basket and filled it with fresh evergreens and sugar pinecones. Then I added a silver twig reindeer sleigh in the center and added in more greens, pods, and dried artichokes.
The holiday theme in this room this year is definitely silver. The tray got a touch of bling in this side table vignette with the addition of a small bottle brush tree adorned in glitter and soft pastel colored balls. The crystal compote holds potpourri that makes the room smell just like Christmas.
Sitting on top of an old dictionary is this sparkly snowflake tree made out of simple wire set into a block of wood covered with faux snow.
The clock is a church rummage sale find. A bargain at fifty cents, I’d say, because it keeps perfect time.
I’m still far from done with my holiday decorating, but I finished up another tree today so at least I feel as if I’ve accomplished something. I spent yesterday in Marysville, Ohio shopping and lunching with some fellow Ohio bloggers. French Hen Farm had its Christmas barn sale and we all found lots of pretty things for the holidays. Plus, it was fun to visit with old friends and meet new ones. But guess who had no camera? I think I’ll blame it on the fact that I left the house in the dark of early morning and I was concerned about driving in snowy weather. But guess who found the darn thing much later- hidden under my jacket out in the car? Surely all this forgetfulness couldn’t be related to the fact that I just had another b-day, could it? I’ll be borrowing photos from a couple of blogging friends for my post on the sale. That is, if I can first get some more decorating done tomorrow! That hand better be telling me to get going, FAST !!
