Christmas is just around the corner and everywhere you look it is starting to be festive, cheerful, and jolly. The season to celebrate and give our homes the happy vibe is here especially if you have children or planning to have some company during the holidays or any other excuse you can think of to adorn and decorate your home this holiday would just be fine. It is time to bring out those family treasured holiday ornaments and accents, and of course it is also time to shop for new ones. Speaking of shopping, which of course is becoming one of the most-enjoyed and well-loved hobbies of women all around whether there is a crisis or not, I have quite a few nice finds for some holiday decorating. These holiday decors and accents will surely spice up any dull and boring space in your home and hopefully add to the holiday spirit of everyone that gets to see them. These decors are something you would love to add to your collection of family treasured holiday ornaments.

Love your header!

The Swarovski is probably beyond my budget:-).

Thank goodness for faux pomegranates. I once used real ones on our tree, they were so heavy, the tree toppled over!

Hey Pink Ink that was funny. You must have had quite a laugh when your tree toppled over...its the time of smiles and laughter no matter what, right?

And Susan thanks a lot for taking the time to visit and eventually put your first comment on my blog:)
