You do know how to decorate! I love everything that you have done. When do you have time to eat and things? I find that even the tiny amount of decorating I do takes lots of energy-Mostly I just clean and stick up a couple of things...Beauty, tho, is yours! Enjoy your holidays,

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

Your house looks beautiful! I love all the blue and silver. Pretty., pretty.

I'd kill for that little red car. Seriously!

Polly said...

Gosh Cindy I don't even know where to begin! It is all so pretty and I love that you have made so many things yourself...as well as you family members!

The vintage photos are awesome!

You should receive your package really soon! It went out on Friday! Please let me know when you get it and that it arrived safely! I always worry!

merry merry...

Your Christmas decor is beautiful. I love that color of blue and all the sparkle and glitter. Gorgeous!

I love all of your decor! I especially love the blue that you used! I have been trying to use that color as a accent throughout the year ( I used it 2 Christmas' ago on the tree...& loved it!) I have used the traditional red & white this year! LOVE YOUR BLOG! TFS all of your ideas!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Enjoyed seeing all your decorations - Thanks for sharing with us.
Have a great week.

Richella Parham said...

It's all so beautiful. I just love the style you've created for yourself. And your photos are WONDERFUL! You've done a great job with everything. Your home looks like a place I'd really like to visit. . . and make myself right at home.

So how old are you in the photo with Santa? I wouldn't go anywhere NEAR Santa when I was a kid--I was terrified of those little booths in the mall--but i would have been five years old in 1968. I'm thinking you would have had to look up to me back in those days. :)

Erin said...

Thanks for the tour, Cindy! Seeing all the decorations puts me in a festive mood. :) Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!


COTTAG3 said...

I love it all! It's beautiful and creative. That specially handmade Christmas plate hanging in the window...totally stealing that idea. I have an almost identical plate made by a special little someone at my house. Thanks for all the great ideas and your bangs look much better now!

NanaDiana said...

Cindy- You have done a really great job with your house. One of the things that I like about it is that you actually have different themes and colors going on in different parts of the house..and yet it all blends together beautifully. It's a house I would like to walk in, sit down and have a cuppa coffee with the owner...you DO drink coffee, don't you?

GREAT JOB! Wonderful post- Diana

Amy Kinser said...

Hi Cindy, Well now you've got me crushing on so many things. I like how you tied a banner to the front of the table, stayed focused on your pretty ice-blue decor (I get XMas decor ADD), added simple picks to the bulbs, and is there a close-up of your stockings somewhere? Blessings, Kim
