PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at
Right this very minute?
K. Here's a smattering of merry stuff I've been setting out until I can get my real fix with the tree tomorrow (tomorrow, it soon will be tomorrow and be our day, we will say a very happy, tomorrow today).
Just picked these up today, and a wee matching wreath that I still need to hang.
Kitchen nook. I painted the star ornaments 'cause they were orangey.
Side hutch with little red touches. I'm *trying* not to go overboard....
My favoritist antique corner cabinet with more red zip. (See the white paint???) This room is still very dark, one window, northern exposure, so I had to artificially lighten this shot so you could see. My mama made the tiny wreath a long time ago. Most of the other pieces were thrift store finds.
Seasonal reading, bells and berries. ( I have a story to tell about this coffee table
...but I'll share it another time.)
Remember my clock?
Love this advent countdown. My kids don't. No candy.
Mantle. I'll show you more of this when we get the whole room done, and I'll talk about all the little things I did to put it together. There's a closeup here.
Found this wreath hook at Salvation Army with the most beautiful gray/blue patina. Got a styrofoam wreath form and went to town with some ribbon I had. This is my computer/living room which will be decked in blues.
Lots of tying involved. But I like it.
Still need to add some festive bows, but I love the way the Dollar Store rocks look in these aqua Ball jars.
Another couple pics of the dining room....
I'm still furiously crafting too....finishing up ornaments, garlands and stockings. As soon as I get everything decked out, I'll show you the familyroom makeover. I'm soooo happy with the white paint!
EDITED to add that I'm linking to Rhoda@ Southern Hospitality for her Christmas Tour of Homes
