Season of Roses and Gold

"God gave us memory so we 
might have roses in December"
                   ~James Barrie

   My Christmas decorations don't change very much from year to year. In the snowy winter wonderland of a Canadian Christmas there is very little pastel to be had in the shops. There is a lot of red and green, gold and silver, and every other primary colour out there! Don't misunderstand I absolutely adore it when the Christmas displays start popping up everywhere. I wouldn't have a shop full of vintage things if I didn't enjoy the hunt! Each year I add one or two pretty things to my Christmas menagerie and I also love to do handmade pieces like the ribbon flower trees that I created this year. The ornaments that I have had for years though are my favourites and it is always exciting to rediscover them every Christmas. The vintage silver tree with German ornaments in blush always fills me with nostalgia. My Mum bought those ornaments when I was a little girl! My favourite beaded stocking with a handmade french silk flower, pearl ornaments, and pink tussie mussie are also old favourites. I found beautiful pink sparkly roses this December and have displayed them on my Florentine nesting tables (another spectacular find! I'm on a roll!). No matter what my Christmas decor is always soft, pastel, with a touch of rose and gold...
