Friday show and tell

Friday show and tell - Blackbird has asked to see decorations.
Alas, there is not an abundance of holiday spirit at Chez Squished this year. We do have a wreath on the front door. One of my coworker's sons was selling these to raise money for his school's band. I think they take a trip every year for a competition. Or something like that. He's very good. (The son. He plays trombone.) The wreath was somewhat on the ho-hum drab side, so I stuck an assortment of colorful things in it to spruce it up.
We also have a cute little Charlie Brown tree just outside the front door, so a few baubles dangle from its limbs.








Just inside the door is a post with a nice vanilla candle. Not nearly as nice as Babelbabe's, though. Those are downright fabulous. Some crackled glass ornaments hang from this. They are too heavy for the tree. They're a deep amber color. Gorgeous up close.





Inside, the tree is jam-packed with all sorts of colorful things. I'm partial to the butterflies, and this green sequined star.
This fairly well sums it up though. The sentiments of the season, that is.

The outside tree has some big gaping holes, so it's a Charlie Brown tree. It's filling out a bit though.
