Christmas 2011 Decorating - Simple Touches

Looking around my living room, I see simple little displays to share:

Like the brass candlesticks and card/picture holder I bought at a consignment shop this fall and spray painted white.  They now grace my cocktail table.  The deer antler was given to me by a friend.

Or the made to look vintage skates I purchased last year, filled with greenery and hung on the mantel.

Or the vintage angel figurine in a rose bowl with artificial snow on the desk hutch.  I read in a blog recently that everything put in or under glass always looks more glamorous.  (Like with cloches and apothecary jars.)   I liked the look but one of my co-workers did not she thought it looked like an angel in a fishbowl!  Maybe I just like the angel so much with her fancy eyelashes that I can't see it any way but beautiful.  She reminds me of my lady head vases.

Or even the addition of a silver ribbon can dress up a pile of books. 
Hope you enjoyed the simple touches!
