A Little Cream and Sugar with that Tree?

A few years ago, after both of the girls were married, I went through all the Christmas ornaments and separated them for their own family Christmas trees.  Then, when I started in the flea market biz a while back I began collecting silver and gold Shiny Brites. I love the ones with scenes or that are embossed. But to really make a little yuletide "sparkle", I gathered my vintage sugars and creamers and hung them alongside on the Living Room Tree.

I love the contrast between the burlap and the "woodsy" feel
with the silver, golds, and sparkly.
I guess you could call it my "Magpie Tree".
( A bird who finds shiny treasures and brings them back to the nest)

Glittered snowflakes of several varieties

My favorite, number "3"

A Snowbaby from my mom.

Found silver baby cup

and some nature and woodland creatures

This tree is a contrast to my Dining Room tree
 that's loaded with lots of color and vintage Putz Houses and Churches.

I think I'm about "done" with the decorating,
Now, I'm just trying to slow down and enjoy the Season.
