My Office Blues

I was reading a post the other day called
"A Touch of Christmas in Every Room" over at
inspired me to add a touch of Christmas to my office.
I had an old Christmas tree made out of blue, white, and silver
bulbs stuck into a styrofoam cone that never quite looked right.
I decided to pull them out and put them in this lovely glass pedestal 
bowl that I got at Goodwill.  


I added some white seashells to the mixture
since my office has a beach theme (another idea
from The Inspired Room).  
I set it on my desk beside my lifeguard lamp where I
can see it easily while working at my computer.

  
Here is Miss Biddy keeping me company and taking a 
little nap while I do my homework.


Just a subtle touch of Christmas ~ but it makes me 
smile every time I look at it.
I wish all Christmas decorating was this easy.


I'm linking with Little Red House for Mosaic Monday
and Smiling Sally for Blue Monday.

Very good! The baubles look great repurposed in the Goodwill bowl. :)

Very pretty, which reminds me that I saw that tip and was going to act on it and promptly forgot it. It looks wonderfully beachy.

I never think to use blue for the Holidays, but yours looks so perfect in the GW Bowl. And, yes, it is nice to have something simple turn out so well. Great photos and mosaic, too.

You see more and more people using blue at the holiday. It mixed with white really makes for a lovely sight.

I honestly have to say that this little glas with bulbs was a great detail in the room. Sometimes you don´t need much, do you? :)
