A Lavender Christmas

I was happy this year to see so many hues of purple offered in the stores for Christmas decorating.  Many bloggers are showing the purple they've incorporated too but here, it's always been part of the decor.
Sparkly purple silk poinsettias, 
a purple Santa... 
a crackled lavender glass ball, 
purple sequinned balls on the tree,
as well as a purple bird.
A couple of dark purple glass decorations hang from the drawer of a table in the hall.
And a glimmering purple butterfly is clipped to the handrail.
I'm linking with Little Red House for Mosaic Monday and Rose Chintz Cottage on Wednesday for Home.

  1. I shouldn't be surprised.....of course you'll have Lavender at Christmas, and it's just lovely. Like you, I hang decorations from knobs and handles on various pieces of furniture.

  2. Totally fits for you and it's nice to see things a little different. The poinsettias are really unusual. Like them.

  6. Perfect decor for you! Perhaps you could save some dried lavender for the tree next year; I have dried hydrangeas on mine. I love that crackled lavender ornament. Just beautiful!

  7. Lovely decorations! And if you need a connection, purple is the color of royalty, right? Makes sense!

  8. Hi Judith!
    I can't believe you said that about The Little Drummer Boy because It's my very favorite. I just didn't add it, even though I thought to do it. Your lavender post is so pretty and I love the crackled glass ball and your mosaic. Thank you for stopping by.

  15. Purples, lavender, mauve, soft pinks is any other colours so perfect for Christmas decorating (Ok traditional red and green... but that is too ordinary.. ;)... Love it! We too are huge fans of all those colours.

    Your photos are brilliant .. and your sparkly purple poinsettia is gorgeous... all I found was a soft pinkish one. Hugs, C. (HHL)

  17. Lovely lavender shades with purple heralding His Majesty come among us! I never used much of it before, but my daughter was married November 16 and her color was a deep purple so my eye has been especially drawn to it this season! She did her tree in her new apartment up with some of the purple decor used at the reception. Lovely! My house is filled with deep burgundy and forest greens with a splash of Victorian pinks and ecru here and there. Hoping to post on Pink Saturday this week after too much busy since the wedding keeping me out of Blogland. Will post my little bit of purple just for you!
    Joy!

  29. Thank you so very much for your kind comments re...our daughter Brittany. She got to return home last evening following 16 days in 2 hospital's 5 major infections, and 2 surgeries. We are thankful and hopeful now.
    My momma loved the colour purple as well as my sister-in-law who was married in a purple gown. You have livened up your Christmas with your favorite too. Have a wonderful holiday~
