Christmas Vignette #1 Red & White

Hi there!  I wanted to share a little more Christmas cheer with you on this gloomy Saturday (it's gloomy here anyway).

Christmas Vignette #1 is part of my red and white candy motif (not candy canes) in my family room and kitchen. 

Last year I found these gianormous red candle holders at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $6 for the set.  They had been $59.  These are something I would never have purchased if not for how insanely cheap they were but I'm kinda liking them.  They definitely make a red statement.   I'm thinking I can probably use them for Valentine's day too. :)

I filled an apothecary jar with old red glass bulbs (only plastic for the kids tree!)...

I filled my small apothecary with a really long strand of red beads...

My cute skinny Santa (why is a Santa skinny?!?)

Then I added some garland that had more dead Christmas lights (Christmas lights 3, Me 0).  I replaced the dead lights of course.

I made a wreath from an old candle ring and a cheap $1 wreath from Wal-Mart and added a few of my cutesy candy picks from Hob Lob. 

The finished product...

Come back soon for more Christmas Cheer!   

(Only if you consider "Christmas Cheer" to be lots of pictures of Christmas decorations :)
