Matchbox Day 3 & My Christmas Trees

My Day 3 Countdown to Christmas matchbox is a little beauty from Nancy, of
My Crafty Little Page.
I love the dimensional top, including, yes, five golden rings! And the bird nest charm is so special. Many thanks Nancy.

I love decking the house for Christmas and this year I started with my trees. The tree in my sunroom/living room is a mix of, well, a little bit of everything. I have new, handmade and vintage ornaments with new and vintage tinsel garland. I wish I had a better camera because it really is quite pretty with hundreds of twinkling white lights.
I like to alternate the toppers. This year I went with my messy angel.
In my dining room I do my victorian tree. The pearl garlands, lacy bows, flowers and victorian inspired ornaments are my favorites. I've linked with Common Ground's Vintage Inspiration Friday and Tinsel & Company's Deck The Halls. I hope you'll visit both, where you'll find links to many inspirational holiday blogs.
