Your little ice skates hanging from your colache remind me of a Christmas back in the very early 60's. My sister and I BOTH asked for a pair of ice skates because we were tired of SHARING my mom's old pair from her childhood.

Christmas morning when we unwrapped all our gifts - - - uh, that would be about two or three - - - no skates.

We tried valiantly to HIDE our disappointment. Dad asked us if we liked our Christmas stuff - - - you know, pj's, socks, underwear. We nodded yes and thanked him.

Then he asked me to go turn on the floor lamp. I thought that a bit strange as we were enjoying our Christmas lights - - - but went to do his bidding, and there - - - hanging from the lamp arms were two brand new pairs of shiny white figure skates.

It was AWESOME.

"Holy Eye-Candy, Batman!" I had to go back and look at everything again for fear of missing all the sweet details! SO. PRETTY!

I will have to live through you on this one- anything glass would last 2.2 seconds around here with all my little curious monkeys!

Leslie said...

And to think I saw these glass jars unornamented just a week ago! Magic girlie girl...pure magic!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Happy Fairytale Friday!

Well I am absolutely drooling over your wonderful display. It truly is stunning. I love all of it and together the impact is awesome. Your apothecary jars are so pretty filled with candy and your cloches are to die for with your beautiful arrangements inside. I also love that you hung such wonderful ornaments on the tops of them. The cupcake, the skaters, the bird and well I could just go on and on. This is truly wonderful. Thank you so much for joining the party and sharing these lovely creations. Hugs, Marty

GrandmaBev said...

Beautiful. It really feels like Christmas from all your wonderful pictures.

Christina said...

Oh, I love how the cloches are all massed together in one big batch of loveliness. I love the large candy canes. I'm afraid I would come around the corner and find my daughter eating one. : )

Celestial Charms said...

So very beautiful. Makes me want to shrink myself to about 2 inches, and wander aimlessly amongst your decorations. I would be looking around, like a kid in a candyshop. Have a great weekend!

My name is PJ. said...

Never have I felt so cloche-less as this month! I've been to several participating blogs and been overwhelmed by the decorating skills of people....

You always go the extra mile when it comes to celebrating and I adore that about you. I'm getting ready to post photos of my mantle next week. You'll see how basic I am when it comes to decorating. ;)

Keetha Broyles said...

Oh Whimsy - - - you GOTTA find the ducky photo of your hubs!!!!

Oregon is going to play THE Ohio State Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl (and I personally think that the Ducks will quack all OVER those Buckeyes - - - I mean, who's afraid of a big seed anyway?)

Just THINK of the fun post you could make for THAT with your hubs picture.

Besides - - - I want to SEE this picture. If I'd had it yesterday, I'd have put it in MY post!!!!

Fun times.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Oh my! Everything looks so magical! Enjoy your day! Twyla

Mimi Sue said...

How adorable. As usual. I notice we have a few of the same things in our houses. Great minds and all that. Mimi

Amy said...

Those are so lovely! I'm hoping one day I'll be able to have some pretties sitting out, but it's going to have to wait until the boys grow up and stop throwing things in the house! ;)

Oh my, I am sooooo jealous. I love the glass apothecary jars and cloches. Your collection is amazing!!!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Your displays are just gorgeous!! I have a few myself that are quite simple, but yours have inspired me to do a bit more. But that red table...wowza, love it, but with my 3 cats, it would last about 4 minutes.

Have a great Sunday,
Suz
