Busy morning for me as I work on finishing up special projects for last minute Christmas orders. I'm always amazed and grateful for the business that comes my way year after year... These are truly tough days in our economy and so I thank you all so very much for the biz. You bless me.
Yesterday I snapped a few more pics of my La Chaumière de Briarwood dressed in her Christmas best. I've had so much fun decorating this year with our new wood floors and the opened-up-wall.
After owning it for a couple of years I finally decided to use the vintage tinsel I found at one of the estate sales I camped out at for days and days. I love how it looks on our mini Christmas Tree.
We use this vintage vanity stool (with the tufted cushion removed) for extra seating when need be. My Miss K routinely sits on it and it's become her chair!
I have a thing for chairs.
They just find me and I'm happy to give them a new home.
This is the first time in years we've had a mirror over our fireplace. I love the simple white floral wreath hanging in front of it so much that I decided to skip hanging my OVER-DONE Christmas Wreath up this year. I also toned down ALL our Christmas Greens again this year...painting them out with my favorite soft white paint. Last year I spray painted our big Tree. This year I dry brushed tons more of her branches and now she's even whiter than before. Love it!
Our mantel's greenery was also brush painted. I love Magnolias and I've had these for fifteen years. This year they also received a wee bit of paint.
My Mr. AGPMan ended up making 22 large Christmas Tree Baskets and 14 small ones and they all $old but one. Next year I plan on offering them on my website. With all the problems with my hands this year I didn't do too much painting... :( Sure miss it! Next year will be BETTAH!
Breakfast room is white, white and more white.
A little outside view!
So there you have it for now...
Tomorrow I'll be finishing up the Christmas Goodies for our neighbors and friends. Can't wait to show you the simple and INEXPENSIVE wrappings this year for our traditional Almond Brittle gift-giving!
Love to you...
