AMSTERDAM


No...the Mistress didn't jet set off to Amsterdam...but how I wish to return there. But I am in the Red Light District! The halls of the Casa du Borghese were decked this week...and as regulars readers will tell you, the red lights are glowing from the windows again, to the dismay of neighborhood busy bodies. I love red lights on the tree and candles.  The clan are all in agreement that the red suits me, and I tend to agree.  At night between the tree, red candles lit all over, and bubble lights, the whole house glows in red, but I've yet see Redrum appear anywhere. I just love how my home looks this time of year, even though, Christmas is not my favorite holiday. I do have some good memories and tradiotns though. Every year, the abode is adorned with festive lights and beautiful ornaments. Every year, I fill my home with lots of cheerful holiday decorations which were either family owned, or gifts given to me over the years. Just about everything has a story, and my tree is trimmed in all red, with exception to about 30 clip bird ornaments. Birds on my tree shocking right?!? While Im gone, I firgured I can give you a season tour.....
This is probably one of my most treasured decorations. It was given to me by my aunt and uncle. A Christmas pyramid made by the Muller Co out of Germany. I love watching it at night when I get home and relaxing .
A Brandywine Critter squirrel.
I love vintage Shiny-Brite balls. They are all over the house filled in things. Most of these were either my grandmother's or  given to me over the years from good friend, the Dame Courtney.
The other love is Bottle Brush Trees. I'm starting to get quite a collection.
Who wants their nuts cracked?
In the kitchen the bar is ready and stocked!
I love me those old bubble lights. I have many but only put these two out this year.
In the boudoir....One of my favorite little trees I made about 15 years ago.
Even Buck gets the holiday treatment.
A snow scene I made with extra little things I found and came up with this little bell jar display for the nightstand.
That's it for now. No underwear tour guide this time since I'm away. Have you decorated yet? If your proud of your tree, or a holiday decoration with a story, email me a picture at mistressborghese@yahoo.com by December 22, and I'll share them in a post Christmas week and see if we can place a decoration to it's owner. 
This could be fun.

    1. Christopher Radko brought them back...but they do NOT have the same feel or look to them by any means...nor even do Radko's own ornaments.

    1. Last year i had a live Charlie brown tree in the bedroom. It was one of my favorite trees ever. They are also good to have if you don't do alot of decorating. Just something that simple can make you feel seasonal and in the spirit.

  14. The warm red glow really suits you. It makes it more difficult to see when you’ve over imbibed (I’d there is such a thing).

  20. I always look forward to see you place for Christmas. I can see why your all comfort their. I love the way you arrange things. Since marrying William we now celebrate Hanukkah. I too love all the glass ornaments in the vessels. So simple yet so sparking. And the Christmas pyramid is a treasure for sure.
