Getting Ornamental ~ Using Ornaments to Decorate your Holiday Home!

Hello dear Christmas friends! Welcome and thank you so much for stopping by and helping me Keep the Christmas Spirit Alive!


Last week I shared some ideas for wreaths so I think now it's time to find some decorating ideas for inside the home. Today I am sharing some of my favourite ornament ideas.

I hope you find some fun ideas too!

Now for my song! If you love the Trans-Siberian Orchestra you will love this clip. This a great video of a time lapse account of a Christmas Tree being decorated. A picture was taken with every change and then put together using Premiere Elements 8 and the Trans-Siberian version of The Carol of the Bells. I hope you enjoy this amazing clip but before you do please scroll up and turn of my Merry Music!



Today I am linking up to my weekly


Say Gday Linky Party


Best wishes and happy weekend!

  8. You've been gathering some more I see. I really like the repurposed sweater ornament and the birch branch at the kitchen window with cookies hanging from it. I'd like to give that one a whirl. Thanks!

  9. I really like the christmas card one because it looks like it took a lot of time and it puts our old cards to good use!
    These would be great ideas for my christmas tree competition.

  10. I adore the look of the big tree. I can't seem to find icicle tinsel anymore. I loved that on our tree when I was little. I know it's messy but I think that look needs to be ressurected!

    Blessings

  20. Natasha, I love ornaments! Tonight, it's the turquoise and lime green topiaries that caught my eye - probably because my daughter's new house has turquoise walls in the bedrooms. (She doesn't like them, but it's a rent house and no painting allowed.) She's already paired them with green, and this would work great for her at Christmas! I'll have to pass on your idea...

  21. Happy Pink Saturday Natasha Sweetie...
    Oh my what ideas are swimming in my head right now. I simply adore the ornament made from wine corks. How elegant yet simple and so dramatic all at the same time.

    I also loved using the tomatoe cage for a Christmas tree and then having beautiful Christmas balls hanging in colors as well.

    So pretty and yes it is coming is it not?

    Have a beautiful Pink Saturday and a wonderful weekend. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  43. I love your blog and all the photos are wonderful. I love to make Christmas ornaments and need to get going on some so I can get them on my store. Last year I made a small Christmas tree with pink and silver ornaments for a friend of mine to put on his reception desk at his veterinary practice. I had such fun making it and loved it so much, it was almost hard to give up :) I can't wait to make another one. Love your blog! Happy PS.

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
