OUR VINTAGE CHINA HUTCH
(Romantic and Sooo Sweet)
Are you freaking out yet that it is November 30th? Will it upset you if I say you now have 25 shopping days left until Christmas?
Sounds utterly commercial...doesn't it?
~SOFT PINKS AND CREAMS~
I decided earlier this year that I was not going to stress out during the Holidays. Truth be told, I don't usually lose my focus during the months of November and December. I generally save up all my 'flip-out days' for January! :) :)
How's that for a little "TMI?" :) :) :)

(A Change From Last Year)
Like many of you I love to decorate for Christmas. I've
over-bought collected a lot of junk beautiful things over the years and sometimes I forget about just what I have until I un-crate it the following year. I'm always amazed at what I find. Plus...I'm one of those die-hard buyers who stalk the stores after Christmas looking for 90% off bargains. Last year I bought scads of glittery gold holly berries and branches for 95% off...oh...and that spray snow stuff, too! Tomorrow I'm going to show you what I bought last year for this year! Some fab finds on the cheap!
Now...see that Sign above the Hutch in the photo above? I debated for a long time just WHAT to paint on it. I almost went with a Christmas theme...but in the end decided to continue being my predictable self and paint something I could use all year long. I love it! Absolutely fits the space! And...no roses! Sometimes (many times) less is more! Definitely is here if you ask me!

Anyway...I've started later than usual decorating for Christmas so last night I hit things pretty hard. I finished putting the final touches on our vintage china hutch and I'm lovin' her this year so much more than last year.

(Watch Tomorrow for Some Neat Freebies)
Seems I'm forever moving things around and changing things up! Since we are putting our Christmas Tree in a different spot this year I've had to do some 'creative thinkin'!" I have two really pretty trees and I've always loved placing one of them in the window at the front of the house. But...we turned that room (it was once our formal living room) into a formal dining earlier this year and so that has messed me up just a bit!

~MY SORORITY STOCKING~
I'm back in the studio today working on some painted pretties and a couple of new pillows but later this evening I'll begin decorating our Mantel. I'm saving our two Christmas Trees for last because my Miss K wants to come and help me! On December 1st last year I had everything already done! Ugh!
Tomorrow I'll be sharing with you some vintage images that are certain to make GREAT "To:/From:" Tags. If I get more of our Christmas decorating finished I'll be sharing that as well!
Blessings to you for an absolutely awesome Tuesday!
Love to you...
