~Gingerbread Village Tablescape, Mantle and Simple & Sweet Fridays #146~

I wanted to share with you our Gingerbread Tablescape for Christmas this year. 
It was a lot of fun creating it.
The girls helped me make the gingerbread houses for the village.
I found a kit at Walmart and they decorated each one.
They turned out so cute!
I placed them in cloches to display them as the centerpiece for the table. I added snow to create a winter scene.
I wanted to separate the tablecloth from the centerpiece
 so I used some wrapping paper from the dollar store.
I used different size cloches to give the 
table height in the center.

Lights and candles everywhere.
I used my clear etched glasses from Anthropologie.
I stamped name tags, added candy and cookies to the display. 
Vintage ornaments and glittered pine cones 
placed in glass dishes.
A fun way to decorate a table for the Christmas holiday!
Our mirror above the mantle is decorated with new star lights.
You can never have enough lights for Christmas.
I had a dog ornament that Justin added Maggie's face to.
Too cute!!
Snowmen and trees added to the winter mantle.
I love my new boxwood wreaths on my vintage windows.
I can't believe Christmas in next week, where has the year gone.
I still have a lot of shopping to do. 
The Christmas tree is decorated and
I've been cooking up a storm.
I'll share more photos soon!

Can't wait to see all your creativity this week!!

~Christmas Mason Jar Candles & kgabara necklaces and Simple & Sweet Fridays #145~


I've been wanting to make some mason jar candles after seeing them on Pinterest and other blogs.
I used some mason jars, pine cones with glitter, jute,
 candles and rock salt.
A Christmas project that takes little time, 
but looks so pretty when lit.
Simple red roses next to the candle is another elegant look.
I cut some ribbon and added a bell onto jars
 in the entryway.
Glittered pinecones and fresh greenery placed around the candles.
When you walk into the house a winter scene greets you. 


Before we get to last weeks features, I wanted to share with you a few of my daughter Katie's unique stained glass necklace designs.
