        Persimmions, Oranges and Holiday Cheer

        To continue on the theme of the holidays and decorating, I was able to put out all my holiday decorations I have gathered over the years. It wasn't much but then I brought home some flowers with a great holiday combination of Orange, Red and Burgundy. I also thought gold as an accent would add just the right holiday effect.

        Starting from the upper left hand corner: a. my very own decorations and arrangement of berries. b. Oranges add a festive touch in this modern home. c. Oranges and cloves d. a wheat wreath e. gold leaves add an elegant touch to the table f. also another one of my own creations with some wooden ornaments.
