Christmas is Shining in the Sunroom

I have decorated the sun room in pastels and angels for Christmas this year.  

I love to make these ornament wreaths!  I just made one for my grandaughter in blue, purple, silver and pink to match her Christmas tree.

I hung the wreath over the flag that I made this past summer...

I have vintage balls, roses, doilies, and even a couple of birds...

I have a white tree in the sunroom..I love how the sun just floods the room every morning!

I decorated the tree in pastels and angels...

White and pink angel wings...

and what I call shabby rag tinsel.  I draped strips of the fabric that was left over from when I made the flag over the sofa.

I love to decorate under the tree (I don't bring out presents til Christmas little sweeties are pro's at figuring out what is in their present and I want it to be a surprise!)

I used an vintage quilt for the tree skirt.  Old ice skates, santa's and can you see my little penguins on the right?

This is my new angel, isn't she beautiful!  I got her Sunday when we drove to Lubbock to see my favorite Christmas open house and of course, do a little shopping.    I found her at Tuesday Morning...orig $85 marked down to $19!! She is in an old suitcase that I painted white.

She is porcelain and her head moves

Her dress is just beautiful!

See how the light just floods in...

Snow women vignette...

This is the vignette that I put in the armoire...

Here is my grandmother angel with her pink tree..

I have had this little praying angel FOREVER,  one of my favorites...

Doesn't her sweet face remind you of your  Grandmother?
This quilt belonged to my Daddy...

I hope you enjoyed the tour of our sunroom.  This is where H and I sit every morning for coffee!
