There Are Angels Among Us!!

I knew I was starting to feel better when I got the urge to start decorating again. I paced myself and I am not quite done, but I like to take my time and enjoy the process.

I worked on my dining room table last night and so far I am really liking it.

As I told you all in a previous post my inspiration this year was this picture……….

I am so drawn to images of angels or anything having to do with angels, so when I saw this picture with the angel wings I knew that I had to do something similar in my dining room.

I did not do exactly the same look, but I am using the angel wings on my chairs. I wanted the room to have a shimmery, sparkly, ethereal effect.

I started out by hanging some mercury glass ornaments from my chandelier boy did that turn out to be harder than I thought it would be. I guess my fingers are not as nimble as they use to be……..

I added the little angel wings, not sure if they will stay or not, but for now I think I like them. What do you all think?

I am not done so I am only going to show you some glimpses. Once I am done I will light all the candles and show you my sparkly dining room table!!

So there you have a sneak peek of my ethereal dining room table. Almost done and as soon as it is I will show you the whole thing, I promise!!!

I am enjoying decking my halls!! How about you all, are you enjoying your time decorating this year?

*** Wellll, since I ALWAYS like ANYthing y*o*u do, the "finished product" is gonna be UBER-FAB (if the "glimpses" so far are any indication!!!)...

And just for the record, the holiday season IS the season for you to indulge your loves/ whims and/or fantasies... (I personally am an angel lover too, & especially love anything that has to do with "believe"!!!)...

Holidays hugs, dear Kathysue!
