White Christmas Vignettes #2 - Living Room

Here's a little vignette on top of a very rustic chest in my living room. It's been changed up for Christmas.

I still used SOME stuff - like the porcelain doll headfound it last summer for .38c at a thrift store. It was 75c on half price day. I LOVE that doll head. 

A small iron urn that held a faux topiary now holds winter twigs clipped from my yard, and chartreuse reindeer moss.

Faux mercury glass projects such as the lamp base,
candlestick (with burning candle) and tall goblet are
grouped with a new mercury glass goblet picked up at
a different thrift store for .57c. It holds a chippy old croquet ball. A smaller one rests in a metal stand sprayed silver. My Art Piece is temporarily replaced by a pewter Christmas wall piece. Cedar clippings from the yard, deconstructed books and a rusty fleur de lis finial finish off the vignette. 

My gallery wall is evolving as well. I've expanded it to grow organically up the wall and over the doorway to the dining room. (The NOW gray dining room!) I plan to show that later this week...

Here's how the gallery wall looked after the last expansion:

It has been tweaked, and has expanded as well.

I want to "deck" the deer antlers somehow. I may add Christmas ornaments, or maybe a small bit of garland or wreath. We'll see... Ideas? You know I love your ideas!

I still have one more area in the living room to show you,
but I'm still working on it! Look for it soon.

Word for the Day:
Psalm 42:1
As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God.
