Sea Glass Ornaments

For those who prefer getting their holiday ideas from talk-show-style television, there’s this 1 hour on-line holiday decorating show from HGTV with designers Angelo Surmelis and Erinn Valencich.  Here you’ll find ideas submitted by homemakers just like you as well as simple, down-home ideas from the HGTV pros.  Not as uptown-elegant as BHG but certainly full of usable ideas. The only downside here is losing time to the plentiful interruptions of the advertising sponsors.  Check out the novel sea glass ornaments submitted by a viewer–pretty & original.  

This is the first of a series of articles reviewing holiday decorating sites on the internet.  Check back with us for Part 2 and frequent updates with new sites to visit.
