Christmas at Wellington a.k.a Heaven on Earth!

I had the pleasure of going to Wellington Gift and Garden this weekend and they have their Christmas displays up.  You may be familiar with my obsession with this shop from , or you may be new to this but I promise you will become obsessed as well.  If you see anything you like their website is: and if your American your dollar is worth more here!!

Anyway, enough sales pitch (I think I want to make sure they are around forever), here is the entrance to the store:

Just inside the door a table of mercury glass made me giddy.

Then I saw this:

I adore Trumeau mirrors and this one is stunning.  Due to the lights it's hard to see the beautifully faded picture on top but the whole thing is one of a kind.  I love the cherubs with Noel under them as well.

This is a whole tree in an urn, sorry the pic. turned out badly but it is a sight to see.
Wellington has Christmas tree's displayed but it's what they have done without using the standard Christmas tree that was so......... enchanting.  Made me rethink a tree, but then I only have a white tree so I guess I'm not doing the standard green either.

I love the black crows and the ice.

Then I discovered the pink mercury glass section. 

This is beautiful,

As is this clock and mirror.

This was my favourite display.

I love this statue on a table.  I have a big vintage urn, if I had high ceilings I would probably do this. 

I like the Christmas dude in the crown.

I have seen Christmas displays before but none rival this.  I think Wellington does an amazing job at any season but their Christmas display tops them all. 

Until next time,



  1. Wow! It all looks so creative and beautiful.


  2. Oh yeah, I agree, Heaven on Earth! I've visited their site and all of their items are GORGEOUS (but expensive)! Looks like a great place to visit for inspiration!

  3. OMG Mercury Glass? that is my new most favorite thing - now i must get to Wellington - i've actually never been there in the winter so i am very excited to stop in for a visit! You reminded me how much i love Wellington Garden Centre - i always leave with something even if its just a bar of soap - its not just soap its absolutely gorgeous and my friends and family have been told not to use it lol Thats a little crazy isn't it??? Take care!
