A few more Christmas decorations

 This is an area on the radiator that is in our computer/living room which is actually the real dining room.
 I found this set of mercury glass candle sticks and they are just so beautiful that I could not resist. I took an up-close picture of the glam and it is the last picture in this post. It did not come out very well!
 I hung up a small painting that my Mom painted a few years ago when I was in Florida with her. I can not tell you how much I miss her right now.She was in Florida when she painted this, but she was dreaming of an Ohio winter...I am dreaming of the day I get to see her again.
 I put my silver tree in the foyer this year with all silver balls but when I looked it just did not look the way I wanted it to so my middle daughter talked me into using her purple balls. It makes me smile, how about you?

I am not sure you can even tell what this is but it is the close version of the candle sticks..
I am certainly not feeling like Christmas but in the midst of this heartbreak I know that my family needs me to remember that this is a special season and that we have to pull together to get through our loss. Some days it is such a struggle. I am thankful for the family that I have. I will post more pics tomorrow.
