Wing Your Flight. . .

A subtle touch of Christmas decor 
has come to the Antique dresser On Crooked Creektt!

Featuring my cloche,
Wing Your Flight. . . is the theme of this vignette.

Back in July,
I purchased this Poinsettia silver mercury glass ornament
@ 50% off while visiting a Tent $ale 
at a local merchant ~ Memories Of Home.
It is from this one ornament that I chose my subtle color palette
for Christmas On Crooked Creektt!

This gilded sheer winged bird sits sweetly amongst the silver ivy
and crisp white bead sprig tied gently with a grosgrain bow.

Keeping the elements in this vignette subtle, while adding a slight contrast 
was accomplished by showcasing my turquoise jeweled star ornaments.

Turquoise mercury glass ornaments 
with jeweled crystal glass beads are elevated by using gray Spanish Moss 
and finished off with silver grosgrain ribbon.

An Avon Angel Tree Topper tucked neatly within this vignette 
is a commemorative from my years of Christmas Pageantry.

I adore her child~like features. . .
                                                       and posing her movable arms!

These petite Christmas trees 
were purchased shortly after arriving on this side of the Prairie.

I adore their silvery green hue 
and the vintage handled creamy ivory pottery vases at their bases!

Only the light from the double~armed candelabra lamp
and the reflection from the mirror give illumination to this vignette!

May Angels, from the realms of glory,

Wing your flight o'er all the earth;

Ye who sang creation's story

Now proclaim Messiah's birth:

Wing your flight. . .
ever so subtly, in your own home this Christmas.

Until next time. . .

On Crooked Creektt will be joining 

And. . .

And. . .

Be sure to visit these inspiring hostesses
each week for amazing ideas for your own home decor!

What a beautiful vignette. I love the poinsettia ornament. And of course, the aqua ones, too!
Enjoy the season, Pat.
