I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a small gathering here
(just the way I like it).
The highlight of the evening was when I pulled my hubby up out of his chair
and insisted that he dance me around when one of our favorite
"Elvis" Christmas songs was playing ha ha!
It was fun, and his Mom got a kick out of watching us.
It had been so long since we had danced together it was like we both had two left feet!!
Hard to believe that when we were younger we could really burn up a dance floor...
Oh, the good ole days...
Now on with the re-do...
I decided that I was ready for a bit of change from the blue and white china
in my china hutch
and this is what I came up with... A wintery whitish woodsy look,
featuring vintage Ironstone with a touch of vintage green Majolica
and vintage brown transferware plates.
You can see the before photo on my sidebar.
My paper white bulbs are just about ready to bloom in this pic!!
This Ironstone pitcher is one of my latest exciting finds!!
Paper whites in BLOOM... Yay!
This called for an artsy photo with the leaded glass doors...
hmm, could be in my next blog header I think!
...I'm still in love with my Craigslist hutch :)
I will be taking a blogging break for a while,
I've come down with a cold virus. This makes the third (and I hope the last)
that I've gotten within the last 3 months.
I think I've been running myself a bit ragged lately and must have weakened my immune system
I guess, because I rarely get sick.
Sooo... I'll being "trying" to get a little rest and then start the
"not so fun chore" of putting away and organizing the Christmas decor...
I'd like to to wish all of you out there a
VERY HAPPY, HEALTHY
filled with MANY blessings!!
Just a few more days folks, can you believe it?!
I hope you're all having a fun time with all your holiday festivities!
You know... I have never seen a single white Christmas here in sunny California...
But a girl can dream...can't she?
Or just decorate with touches of white !
Here are some I added to my bookcase...
I also added touches of nature's greenery...
Love this lil church...
This arrangement wasn't done in white but I love the woodsy feel it has.
Would you believe me if I told you that I found
the antlers in this arrangement at the Goodwill?!
Well... I did!
Now I know it's possible to find absolutely ANYTHING you're looking for there!
Here's how they looked before... all I had to do was unscrew them.
Now I just need to think of something creative to do with wood stand...
I decided to use some special effects on the rest of my photos
from my outdoor display to send you this special message...
