It's time to get an early start on your holiday decor. I just finished decorating my space for Christmas before I even put my Halloween candy in the bowl for the trick-or-treaters. I'm hoping that my pics will put you in the holiday mood and you'll come shop with us.

For some reason, after years of a love affair with silver and mercury glass, I've developed a fondness for gold. You'll see my new favorite metal in my holiday decor.
|Santos, Gold, and Peacock Feathers|
I wanted a way to display a selection of my ornaments, so I cut a triangle from the peacock wrapping paper I used as a back drop. On the blank reverse side I randomly painted gold polka dots with the end of a foam paint roller dipped into gold craft paint. I added some screws down the sides of the "tree" and zigzagged from one side to the other with gold garland.

Besides the glass jars, I used a large rectangular metal basket to hold the ornament overflow.
I lined it with gold-trimmed napkins and leopard ribbon.
|Metal Tray Filled With Ornaments|
I used a chippendale planter from my garden as a tree stand for my feather tree.

|Vintage Bottle Brush Wreath|
If you recall, last year I did my whole space in plaid.
It still seems to be very popular so I included some tartan again.
I hope to see you this weekend.
I'll be working Friday.
