Holiday Pinks and the Tree

The count down is on, only a few more days until Christmas! Just a few last minute things to wrap and the baking is close to being done.  I hope to pick up my sometimes blogging partner daughter Andrea at the airport tomorrow night. Here in Michigan we are on the edge of the big storm coming thru just in time to make holiday traveling difficult for everyone. Up at the cottage we are supposed to get about 18 inches of snow! 

 I have been posting a lot of red accents this holiday season but I use lots of pinks too. The hutch in the dining room is my favorite place to display bottle brush tree, mini houses, santas and reindeer.



The little pink deer were new additions this year, I found those in New York when I went to visit Andrea. I think they fit in perfectly with the little house and bottle brush trees.




Mini angels and vintage jewelry helps to round out the decorating.



I have to stack the houses when I run out of room.




Here comes the tree, I photographed it during the day and tried to do a few night shots.



The tree is mainly white, silver, gold with some pink, I left all the red ornaments packed away this year. I added glass icicles and paper cut outs I did several years ago.


I love to turn the lights down low and sit by the glow of the tree. A green bejeweled bear  sits on top of the tree.














An old fashion Christmas.




A little collection of ornaments.




This santa is ready! I hope you are ready for the holidays too. If not, no worries it is about being with your family or with them in spirit if distance keeps you apart. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

Oh my goodness!!! Your cupboard looks like the window of a big city department store in an old movie!! I can practically see little Natalie Wood gazing at the wonders inside. Love, love, love it all!!!

I hope your daughter arrives safely and you have the best Christmas in your cozy cottage while the snow falls outside!

The pink deer add a great touch to your beautiful collection! We didn't get to decorate like the way I wanted but like you said as long as we are together that's all that matters.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I could get lost for hours looking at all the pretties on your hutch. That's one of my favorite Christmas scenes. Pinned it last year, but just had to do so again. Your tree also looks wintery delicious, Laura. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Laura. I wish you and those you love peace as we celebrate this miracle.

Your hutch look magical. I love it. I've been looking for a pink bottlebrush tree for years, and I haven't found one yet. One of these days.

Your tree is so pretty. You know I love the pink Santa. I will be gazing at my tree in the dark tonight, too.

Thank you for making Pink Saturday special.♥

Forgot to tell you that a great friend of mine is having a Downton Abbey costume party (men and women) this sunday - we can't go, but isn't that a GREAT idea???
