still need to decorate the homemade cedar garland...any ideas??

glitzed up pine cones Available @ Time n Again Antiques

nutcrackers ( my 14 yr old fav) on top of my red and green vintage book collection

good ol Santa

just pretend like ya don't see the ugly cords hanging ~ those darn cats think i put it there for them to play with!! think im gonna have to whip out the duck tape!

im so in love with pine cones this year ~ thank you dad for collecting them for me!

foyer ( Martha Stewart metallic paint love how it shimmers and changes colors)

our home is def lived in! always pillows and toys on the floor

so much prettier in person.

went for a natural elegant theme this year. owls,brown bag paper chain, twine, magnolia leaves, pine cones, bronze glittered icicles, peacock feathers, amber colored prisms, and of coarse i can't forget my firefighters collection of vintage cars. (im learning to share :) )

antique sheet music wreath

decorating in all white is sometimes sooo difficult~ it was hard to resist... i added some turquoise

 there is still so much more i wanted to share hopefully ill have time this week for another post ( that is if i can keep grand central station cleaned)

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

my "before" booth pics

december 2011
Happy Holidays Everyone! Im so excited for Christmas this year. I feel so very lucky this year its really been a great one!

We had our Holiday Open House last weekend at A Unique House Antique Mall in King George, Virginia. Unfortunately i was unable to make it ~ no way was i going to try to take my little partner on such a busy day and my firefighter had to stay @ work that day, so i missed it :(.  And actually ive been so busy at home i haven't even had a chance to go check out the damage in my booth. Im gonna call these the before pics ~ cause im sure it looks much different now. and plus later this week i will be bringing some new goodies in and a gorgeous clock face painted coffee table ( hang tight pictures to come later)!  So enjoy and have a fabulous day!

painted branches hang frm the ceiling w/sparkly tinsil and  glitz pinecones

toile pillow

vintage ornaments galore moss topiarys

ASCP Aubusson blue (my new fav color) antique drum table

so shabby chic side chair

love chalk paint!

My space is Finally Full

Its taken me a month ( or two) but my booth at A Unique House Antique Mall in King George, VA is finally full.  I tend to move in slow motion these days my partner ( the ever most helpful 1 yr old) holds me back a bit. :) Not to mention that things disapear as soon as i bring them in ~ which is a good thing and im very greatful!
Christmas and winter decor is taking over and boy is it looking pretty! Im really hoping Santa brings me a new camera this year so my pics will do my space justice.  But untill then heres a few shots i took 2 weeks ago. I did fluff my space last night but was so rushed ( thanks to my partner) i didn't get any new pictures but i promise more to come!! Enjoy <3
