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!


  1. Christmas is forever! I may be in big big trouble. I am going to hit your follow button when I am done with this comment. So many ideas in my head already. yikes. I love all things Christmas and you will be my first All Things Christmas Blog. I look forward to looking around and hanging out!! or even joining the Pinterest party! Thanks so much! Jen

  2. That last picture is amazing! What a tree!

  3. The fillable clear ornaments have become so popular! Love the cozie's too.

  4. The postage stamp ornament is my favorite. Simple and pretty. Hugs♥Olive

  5. I love the postage stamp ornament! Thanks for sharing, Laura Cottage and Broome

  6. Great inspiration. I love the white cable sweater ball ornament and the little Santa head on the doorknob and so many others.

  7. Love the ornaments! My favorites are the button cute..and the cable sweater one and the bottle cork ornaments. Lots of ideas! Thanks for sharing.

  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!



  11. LOVE these ideas - so exciting - I'm already decorating tree #1. Many more to go :)

  12. Wonderful ideas. My favorites are the topiaries and the beautiful tree.

  13. Beautiful pictures you have there! The teacup caught my eye!

  14. I just love your christmas blog. A lot of beautiful pictures and inspiration:) Thanks for sharing:)

    Hugs Marianne

  15. HPS!

    Love the doorknob ornament! It's the winner!


  16. Hiya, I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog, I'm a follower and I just added your button to my blog! Its under "more great blogs", in my right column.
    I just started my holiday blog last month and I'm trying to get it out there for everyone to enjoy.
    If you would like to add my button to your blog I would really appreciate it! :)
    Happy Holidays!!!!

  17. Just found you I will be back. I love the holidays and love all the photos. The doorknob thing is cute never saw that before.
    I love PINK and you had some cute pics of pink ornaments. Our holiday is a very pink one

  18. I'm a new follower.. Such great pictures and so many christmas ideas. warm wishes

  19. What neat ornaments ideas Natasha! I love homemade as well as store bought ornaments. I also love the music from that band. Thank you for linking up with Home Sweet Home.

  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

    I just love your Christmas ideas. You are inspiring me. Thank you for sharing.


  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...
