Gothidays 2012: Shiny Things



It's the penultimate day of the Gothidays 2012 blogging event at Professor Z's Cabinet of Curiosities. My autumn-to-winter decorating change was completed with the exchange of the decor on the bookshelves. I used candleholders, a glittery ornament, glittery pinecones and a couple of picture frames. This display isn't as robust as my usual bookshelf decorating, but limiting the color scheme meant I had fewer appropriate items on hand. About half of what's here was purchased in the last two weeks. :)

I especially like these white candleholders with silver glitter. I bought them retail (half off, with an additional 20% coupon) but it would be very easy to transform some thrift store candleholders into something similar by using glitter glue. The silver ornament is sitting on a glass candlestick from Dollar Tree.


Thus concludes my series of posts on Gothidays decorating! Considering this is the first year I have ever decorated for the holidays, I think I did okay. Thank you all for the wonderful compliments you've left in the comments. :D

  1. BIG fan of the color scheme and the glitter!!
    Teacherman keeps finding glitter on his face, in his hair, on his clothes and asking "Why...?"
    I tell him it's because 90% of our Christmas decor is glittery!

      Admit it, you're sprinkling glitter on him while he's asleep. ;)

  3. I think the way you use silver and shimmering white looks very good. :) It's in perfect balance with the more darker parts of your home decor!
