Vintage Ornaments

Ornaments


I mentioned in a previous post that in my attempt to Patchouli-proof our Christmas tree, that I had sorted out all of the glass ornaments. I really hated to be without my small collection of vintage ornaments (from my grandmother), and I searched around for a place she couldn't reach. I found the perfect place! My dining room chandelier! So, until she learns how to climb a ladder, all is safe.

What a cute idea. It loooks really neat too. I ditch decorating the tree all together and just put on lights and candy canes.

I swear I'm going to change out my dining room Tiffany lamp to a chandelier now...I can't hang anything there and I like options. Your ornaments are beautiful.

She may learn, but until then, your chandelier looks great!

Hah! We hung some ornaments on our chandeliers last night, to keep them away from our 15-month-old granddaughter!

Pam, that was a fabulous idea!!! It looks terrific! Keep an eye on the ladder though, just in case!

Lisa said...

Very clever. Your ornaments are gorgeous!

That's stunning :) I hang bunches of baubles in the corners of my rooms because they're too big for our little tree.

Pam said...

Beautiful. What a great idea - the ornaments are lovely.

Oh my gosh, I think they look wonderful on your chandelier! I think I may "borrow" that idea. Now if only I could stop my cats from playing with wrapping ribbon.

Great idea! The light will really bring out the colours too!
I have candy canes hanging on my chandelier (my lowbrow version!).
Your collection is lovely.

Wow, these are absolutely beautiful! It's a good idea, too. My cat has broken a few of our glass bulbs this year that were hanging on the tree, and I was not happy!
