I managed to do some more Christmas decorating on Saturday before my company came. Still, the tree isn't up yet. I am procrastinating on that one. The kids wanted me to do it today but I had to get some website orders off and that took quite a bit of time. I also had to make some more wallpaper packs and that is one tedious job lemme tell ya. I have to iron the wallpaper because it is old and stays rolled up. Listen, I don't even like ironing clothes so this is one task I am not overly fond of - to say the least. Ironing wallpaper - watching paint dry, almost the same thing. Boring!
This is my "cream" colored table. Oh, I just got a chippy cream colored breakfast tray at V.V. today and I think it would look good on here. I had to leave it in the truck when I got home cuz hubby was here and I just couldn't take the rolling of the eyes routine. It will stay hidden until tomorrow morning when he is safely gone. Once it is set up he will like it - but if he saw it coming in as just an old chippy breakfast tray he would have nothing good to say!
I don't know how exactly my Pixie collection got started, I am still actually not sure that I care for them that much (!) but here are a few cuddled up in a wooden wagon I picked up at another one of my fav thrift stores. I love the banner on it. See the snowman next to it? It's an old German candy container that my sister got at a huge yard sale for 10 cents. She was so sweet to give it to me. Oh, by the way, she gave me the JOY garland and now it is hanging above my sink, I'll have to take a picture of it. In return, I gave her an old sugar dish covered in shabby roses - she LOVES old roses.
I've said it before but I am always overwhelmed by the kindness of the ladies I meet on the internet. Sherri from Antique Paperie a gorgeous online shop filled with beautiful handmade papers, tags, etc placed an order from my website. Well, today she emailed and told me she was starting a "Featured Artist" on her site and that she was going to feature me! Sherri, thank-you so much. You made my day, I am really thrilled and honored to be your first feature!
And it really must be my lucky day because I found out I was the monthly winner of a draw over at Karla's Cottage! Don't forget - she is having a big blog party "What Do You Love About Your Holiday Home?" on December 12th, you won't want to miss that!
