What a fun day of parties this will be! We have a wonderful group of bloggers participating in our very first blog party and they’re sure to provide everyone who is visiting today with some fabulous ideas!
Here at Bella Manor it’s been several weeks worth of party planning, polishing, and painting!
The Ice Queen has declared……..”let the party begin!”
This chest (as you can see) stayed much the same. I did add some glittered candles and the little glittered fairies into the mix.
Plenty of votive holders scattered here and there.
Here’s my newest purchase that I was telling you about on Monday. This rectangle caddy with all of the little cubby holes. I didn’t have a clue what I intended to do with it when I purchased it, but I filled some of the holes and left others empty. It contains a mix of old and new and some of my digital art. I even included some vintage Christmas cards.
My snow man is happy in his new home.
I must really like that little pink fairy. She keeps showing up everywhere.
I find myself using seam binding ribbon everywhere these days.'
The dining room chandelier. Adorned with snow flakes and my paper doll banner which I glittered with mica flakes.
More trays (of course) this time with a perfectly tarnished silver service and neutral colored ornaments.
The coffee table and fireplace. Decorated in neutrals and yummy mercury glass. I can’t seem to get enough of mercury glass!
When I hung the giant mirror above the (also) giant chest, I swore I wouldn’t hang anything on either side of it. Until I acquired this photo portrait of my grandfather as a child.
With all of the decorating that I have been doing, I probably had the most fun in my (almost) studio. As I call it. Hubby and I painted the walls which gave the room an entirely new feeling.
They are now a soft cream color instead of that ugly yellow. What do you think of my tree bed? I finally found the right combination of bedding to make me happy! One great thing about a bed made from a tree……you can drive nails into it all you want to. Which is how I attached the cream felt garland across the head board.
I also nailed the nest on the top and hot glued the little velvet bird into the nest. Kind of appropriate, I thought.
There’s my tiny pink tree. Tucked in a corner and topped with another piece of digital art.
Out of everything that I decorated, these shelves are probably my favorite.
On the top.
More shelves and supplies
I keep this sweet little bowl beside the bed. It’s stamped “made in France” on the bottom and has the most wonderful colors of pinks and turquoise on the inside. Hard to see, I know with all of the goodies I found to fill it with.
And now, this party girl needs some sleep! It’s 12:37 AM Saturday morning and I am tired! Our party here was a lot of fun this evening and I’ll have pictures of that later along with the rest of my home. I took 106 pictures with my digital camera, so it looks like this party will continue well into next week!
Be SURE to visit everyone who is participating in our Holiday party! I know that everyone has worked very hard so that they would have some great ideas to share! The list of partiers is on my left sidebar. Just click on each name and it will take you directly to their blog!
Now it’s off for some sleep so that I can enjoy cruising all of the great blogs!
