“Jingle Bells”

Hello everyone, well the holidays will start this Thursday, I just hope Christmas doesn’t come as fast as Thanksgiving did.lol
I really haven’t started to decorate for Christmas yet, I always wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put the tree up. I promised myself that I wouldn’t put a lot out this year, hopefully I can stick to that promise!
Here is a small centerpiece that I did, the jingle bells are from Dollar Tree, they have the muted silver and the shiny so I went with the shiny to have a little bling!
Like the pillow there on my bench? It’s from TJ Maxx.

The piece that the vase is sitting on I found from GW this past Friday and the added bonus is that it’s really from Ikea and I paid just $2.99 for it!

Aren’t the pinecones neat, those are from our backyard and I need to get out there and pick up more:)
The red berry picks are also from the Dollar Tree as is the glass candleholder.

Rondell- That is really, really cute- and affordable. Love the way it turned out.
I have been promising myself that I am not going to go all out for Christmas this year either- we'll see how THAT works out-xo Diana

Jingle all the way! This is so cute and such a great idea. You have reminded me to try and use my glass cylinders with something decorative inside this year. I love it!

Love the idea of the bells being used as a vase filler -- so clever and looks great, Rondell!

I enjoy and love everything about your blog Rondell. Pretty name too.
Your centerpiece is so nice because it is simple and affordable. You put thought into it and shopped your stash.
Not everybody can buy the very best and most expensive. It's sure nice if people can but many people use our imaginations to make things, to me that's so much more fun and satisfying.
I have many of the bells the size you have which I bought from a store called $deals. I got several pkgs. of different colors of them while they had them and am so glad I did. They closed up about 3 yrs ago or so. Total bummer as I got so much cute stuff there that fit into my non-budget. The bells are one of things I get out first when I start doing the Christmas holiday decorating.
I got rid of several boxes of decorations this spring when we cleaned out our shed. What did I need all that stuff for. Took all of it to our local thrift store.
Whenever we have a yard sale or clean out the shed we take boxes of things to the thrift store. The money the store makes helps many people in the community. Their prices have sure gone up tho.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Love it, Rondell! It's simple and uncomplicated, and I think we need more of that around this time of year!
