Silver and Blue Christmas Vignette

Today I'd like to share with you a few vignettes from around our home. We're not putting up a large tree this year, so I thought vignettes would be the perfect accents for our living room. The past years I've used gold and burgundy in the living room, but since I'm working on a make over in the room, I changed out the colors to aqua blue and silver.

This vignette was put together very inexpensively using ornaments purchased from Wal-Mart, the dollar store and a second hand store.
The mercury glass candle holders and candle were free or half price using coupons; and the silver snow flake fabric was 99 cents for two yards @ a second hand store.

I love the little lacy snowflakes and the elegance and sparkle
from the ornaments and mercury glass.

This area I created on an end table using a mirror left over from our daughters wedding, a snowflake mercury glass candle holder (purchased for 99 cents at a thrift store), sparkly tinsel and glass beads from the dollar store.
I hung a Merry Christmas ornament from Wal-Mart on my thrift store lamp.

I placed these cute little thrift store trees/candles on my coffee table.
They remind me of these @ Pottery Barn. Mine cost a mere $1.99 for all three!

On the other side of the coffee table, I placed this silver tray (.79 cent thrift store find)
adding tinsel and glass beads
along with ornaments, a candle and another small silver tree placed in a white bowl.

This similar vignette was placed on a side cabinet.

I placed this ornament filled jar on top of my corner hutch.

The shelf in the entry area was decorated with two 25 cent garage sale mercury glass candle holders, a 99 cent oil lamp and mercury glass ornaments from the thrifty store.
The blue glass ornament is the only thing purchased new from TJ Maxx.

Here's the little tree all sparkly and lit up.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my living room Christmas decor.
I'm hoping to share more of my home decorated for Christmas,
so please come back for more of the tour.
