Deck the Halls

Time for another "Deck the Halls" hosted by Susan @ Thoughts From Over the Rainbow. http://thoughtsfromovertherainbow.blogspot.com/. Thanks Susan for hosting this event. I have really enjoyed seeing everyone's Christmas decorations. I brought my decorating to a screeching halt, as I think I have been on my leg to much, but I do have a few more things around the house to share. Some of you may remember my birdcage that I hung a chandelier ( tree ornament) in a while back. Well - I found a package of two white trees at Dollar Tree and put them in the birdcage. I think it gives it a Winter/snow look, then added a touch of holiday decor on top.

Hard to photograph the inside. Remember the house Dr. Zhivago and Lara fled to, that snow had blown inside and everything was covered in snow and ice.....................may work on this some more. :)
