baubles and glass domes

by Sharon Santoni

I love the way that things just come together at this time of year,

decorations are taken out of trunks and boxes,

bringing with them smiles and memories;

grouped by colour, with a couple of candles

and my favourite glass domes

they can be moved around and changed with little effort

just enough to decorate a table in the corner,

and add to the holiday spirit.

We are not having a large tree this year but your post inspired me to drag out some of my favorite baubles to decorate my tables. I always enjoy reading and seeing your blog every day.

I see some red ! lol I opted for no red this year and i love it! I love the tops on your ornaments, very classy and the satin ribbon pulls it all together. Hopefully we will get to see your tree.

I love those ornaments of your Sharon & it appears there’s an angel in the “wings.” I’m having a tough time being in the “spirit” this year but you do always inspire me. Thank you for that & so much more.

Love the deep red and silver together. I, too, hope for more peeks at your tree and other decorations for Christmas.

Such pretty ornaments, with satin ribbon. I wish I had some that I remember hanging on the tree when I was was a child. I won’t be decorating a tree this year as we will be sharing Christmas with our daughter & grandchildren. But you’ve inspired me to do a little something for the side tables. can’t wait to see your tree..

I am having trouble embracing your new blog design and format. I usually read it on my ipad from a RSS site that delivers me your new posts. The posts look incomplete, ie I cannot see the full pictures, plus at the bottom they all say this weird thing of being from your original blog My French country home. When I go directly to your site, I see the full photos and I do not get the weird message. I rely on my RSS Reader because I visit hundreds of blogs and your site use to work just fine on it. Plus,did you know that your blog address changed so that anyone who had already subscribed had to re subscribe? I noticed I had not gotten anything from you for weeks and when I went directly to your site, again, I found that your address had changed. I am a forever loyal reader so I will always find you – but now sadly I have to go to your website directly and cannot read you from my Reader. Just wanted you to know. The web is all magic so who knows what is happening!?

Everything looks wonderful chez vous, Sharon! Love the way the sunlight gently touches your objets d’art…Anita

So lovely are your images of first light transforming into the candlelight.
Your softer holiday tones are beautiful.
You are back on my blogroll, Sharon. Now my morning coffee has it’s spoonful of guilt free French Country Home sugar!

Such beautiful ornaments! That is a great collection and a great idea to show them other than on a tree….(the dogs would knock them off) Thanks!

The glass domes are lovely. I recently acquired (in the spirit of all brocante-all the time) a couple of almost-matching large hurricane glass shades supposedly for candles, but they could hold colored glass ornaments, too.

I have a big Wedgewood bowl full of them, too, in red, silver, gold, green and some blue. Next, the tree.

So lovely… beautiful and simply ethereal.
Having worked on my Showroom christmas windows, the window for ROMO textiles which we designed and installed on friday night, I now need to tackle the Christmas tree…
Running out of inspiration, let alone shopping and wrapping presents….but i Love it !
