christmas music...

Good Morning!!  Debra is hosting her Vintage Inspiration Friday again today at Common Ground ~ don't you just love  her new button...
Today my little holiday nest tour continues with a bit of a music theme.  I put this simple vignette together and my Mom's old music book was the starting point...

There is a little peek of my tree in the reflection!  I love the graphics on the cone don't you...
I wanted the vignette on this table to go with this sweet Christmas sheet music banner I put on my mantel mirror (which I do not use on my mantel!)...
  Each "flag" is a different Christmas carol and the edges are trimmed in glitter...
Another peek at my tree!  And yes, it sits right next to my ugly old computer table and chair (hoping to find new ones soon...still trying to talk the Mr. into the chair Hilary!)  Well, since I sort of showed you a bit of the desk I will share with you how I tried to make it look pretty for the holidays.  Above the desk on the message board I put the advent calendar I made for myself...

Then I took the old drawer with metal dividers out of my craft room and put it on the corner of the desk...


I added a few little flower frogs and some petite white bottle brush trees but I think it might need something else.  Any suggestions?  I am sure a bit of browsing through all the other VIF links over at Common Ground will probably give me a few ideas!

I hope you all enjoy your day ~ mine started off just fabulous ~ I won the beautiful giveaway over at Dreamy Whites!!  Thank you so much Maria!  Am I a lucky girl or what!!!

I'm sure if you've been a good girl, Santa will bring you the perfect new computer desk and chair! ;-) I think vintage Christmas balls would be cute in that cabinet on your desk. As always, your house looks amazing and like a dreamy, cozy romantic cottage.

Your banner is so very sweet, girlie! I love where you hung it! You could add some vintage tree balls in your little cubby holes, or maybe some sprigs of cedar?

Looks like you're having way too much fun decorating! lol!
