More Frugal Luxury Courtesy of The Pleasures of Homemaking

"Kindred Spirits aren't so scarce as I used to think."
--Lucy Maud Montgomery

Kind Manuela at The Pleasures of Homemaking
has amazing decorating ideas on her blog!
She has very generously allowed me to
post these photos of her holiday tree...
I really love how she solved a problem using
the cranberry transfer-ware cup and the blue and white creamer!
These photos are just the tip of the iceberg...
you should see what she's doing with silver and mercury glass over at
you'll be so inspired.


This is so clever to place the tree in front of a mirror...
it is framed it will give double the light!

Notice how she blends store-bought ornaments with items from her china cabinet!
