From Every Day Plain to Dressed for Christmas

I'm happy to be linking to:
Tabletop Tuesday
Metamorphosis Monday
Amaze Me Monday
All Things Heart & Home

This isn't a tabletop, but it's something special for Christmas.  I have a very "Plain-Jane" fan-light fixture in my dining room.   I dressed it up just a bit with some new beaded lamp shades a while back, but it didn't really help a bunch.  Because of the location of this room, we really do need this type of fixture.  Oh well, it can at least get dressed up for the holidays.  This first pic is the "undressed" fixture.  Don't laugh, it might get embarrassed.


This is the first layer.  Still needs a lot more.  I used one of the wreaths I bought at GW for $2.99.  It's nice & full.


Okay, now we're talking.  Sorry about the lighting -- this room is so challenging for taking photos.


All the ornaments are from the $Store & Walmart.  I really like the swirly icicles.  They are clear & really capture the light.  I used gold & silver balls.


I used a different camera setting for this shot.  I'm really liking this.




Yep, here I go again with the weird shots.  No, I didn't go into strange contortions to get this.  I just put the camera underneath & started clicking -- finally got one I liked!


Just one more quick look at the finished "dressed for Christmas" fan-light.


Maybe you can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.  Uh oh, I bet a lot of you youngsters out there never heard that one.  Just think about it & you'll get it!  Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
