Festive Baubles & The Christmas Puppy

Oh how I love the glass ornaments . . .

holiday tray - $2 - Mom took this home with her :(

glass ornaments - $2 - I know most of you out there gather these bad boys up when you see them. I also realized that I had two other boxes of thrifted ornaments stashed from last year so I displayed some of them in my new hurricane from the Pottery Barn Outlet:

*that's my new Babuska from Dept 56 that I found at the Lenox outlet for $3! I love her.

I also loaded up my cocktail shakers with ornaments:

I'm tempted to leave these out year round. I love the sparkle. By the way, all of these shakers were either thrifted or given to me by a friend. The ornament oil light was also thrifted. It had two others to match but somebody's big fluffy tail wiped them away last Christmas. :(

Needless to say, I love the festive baubles that come with this time of year. I also feel the need to share some pictures of Kaiser. Seems he is as much of a fan of the Christmas tree as I am. This first shot is from last year with Kaiser Peanut was a wee pup of 6 months:

Honestly I think he's hiding from the big dog. Now this year, at 18 months:

I think he realized that the tree skirt is some awfully squishy goodness.

Oh that Kaiser, so freaking cute! He does look handsome in his new sweater. Mommy dresses him well :-)

Loving the xmas ornaments. I knew you didn't need more and I'm glad I got my taser gun out to stop you from purchasing that pretty sparkly egg shaped one!
