And I've been busy decorating my bookshelves, too - I used two of my music houses (the little one is on Etsy already and the big one will be by tomorrow) and a few little decorations we had - the little picket fences and wreaths are just too cute. Plus the large bottle brush trees are a great find from Jo Anne Fabrics last year.

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas
I'm craving snow right now, but the weather keeps yoyo-ing back and forth between cold and warm and we've only had little flurries so far. But that isn't the only part of a white Christmas I like. When I was younger I liked to decorate with bold dark colors, but the last five years or so I've turned to a lighter taste - mostly shabby chic. I love shades of white, vintage off-white mixed with crisper cooler whites, shades of light pink, etc. So it's little wonder that my Christmas decorations are starting to reflect that, too.
I've decorated most of the house with the traditional green and red decorations, but my bedroom is still a haven to the lighter shabby side of the holidays. Just check out my little white tree - got it at Target last year and I decided it goes best on top of my dresser just now.I still haven't found quite the ornaments I want, but for now I found some cute vintagey colored ones at Kmart last year. They'll do for now. Mostly what I'd like to do is decorate it with small mercury glass ornaments and maybe some handmade ornaments that give it a more shabby french feel.
