Decking the Halls

Today was the big Santa Claus parade in downtown Toronto as well as the one in our little village.  The radio started playing Christmas carols and the mood was set!
Our holiday decor consists of lots of snowmen, snowflakes and other things that say winter.  Traditional reds and greens are well, too traditional and I use burgundy, silver, lavender and white.
My mosaic this week will give you a peek at some of the things I put out.

Our Christmas tree has dwindled from one upstairs in the living room and one downstairs in the family room to a table top silver tinsel tree in front of the living room window.  The runner on our dining room table and tree skirt match and I've always liked the black lace on the skirt.
A ceramic tree I made years ago sits in the large window of the kitchen with icicle lights and snowflakes above it.
I hope you'll join Mary at Little Red House where our American friends are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving while here we're decorating for Christmas.  Only in Canada eh?  :-)
Don't forget to think about participating in the two Christmas parties on my sidebar.


  1. Hi Judith: I have a little ceramic Christmas tree also. It belonged to my hubby's mother-in-law. I also posted the beginning of decorating for Christmas.

  2. Hi Judith... Lovely! I love your color scheme! I am secretly a little jealous, I want to decorate for Christmas!! We had snow.. so I snuck a few christmas light out onto my back patio to enjoy:-)

  3. Hi Judith,
    I too have a little ceramic tree which my youngest son made when he was twelve. He left it here with me. Your home is looking very festive and I'm sure there was lots of excitement in Toronto and surrounding areas today. Very pretty mosaic!


  4. Judith, I would love to read your gardening column in the newspaper but I was not able to locate it. Any tips on where to look, and what day of the week?
    Beautiful pictures in your mosaic! I love your ceramic tree and also your snowman. The Christmas tree branches are pretty too.
    Merry Christmas, Judith!
    Hugs, Beth

  5. Wonderful. I'll start on after this Thanksgiving weekend in the U.S. Enjoy your preparations!

  6. Such pretty things! A beautiful mosaic of the season!

  7. Oh Christmas has arrived in your corner. I'm eager to get going here, but will content myself this week with Thanksgiving preparations. Next week is a different story!

  8. We too have been decorating for Christmas at home in Edmonton. I like your ceramic Christmas tree and hope someday to make one myself. I've been admiring my sister-in-law's for many years but haven't yet had the opportunity to craft one.

    Thank you for visiting for Mosaic Monday and for your kind comment. Have a great week!

    PS I am a new follower of your blog and will have to check out the other one too. I've been a fan of a contributing author, Marjorie Harris, ever since she had the spot on television.

  9. Pretty mosaic, Judith - I especially love the lavender!
    Happy week to you,

  10. Your decorations are very pretty! I like the hint of lavender in them :)
    happy MM!

  11. I like all that lavender you include in your Christmas decorations. :)

  12. Your decorations are pretty and I love the little Christmas tree and the icicle lights.

  13. What a pretty color scheme, Judith! I always love the less traditional colors at Christmas, but our house just cries out for reds and golds... :)
