Hello! I hope your Thanksgiving and long weekend were lovely! We had a great time with family, and my husband and I did lots of shopping during the sales. It's a tradition with us. We pick up the paper on Thanksgiving on the way to my Mom's and we plan our day. We always stop for lunch to regroup, and then go at it again. It's fun, really. The crazy crowds, and the excitement in the air. I love it!
Anyway, the only room decorated in my house so far is the studio. Here is a rather dark shot of the studio all decked out for Christmas. The chandelier is a new find. We painted it white and added the pink mercury glass ornaments from it. (Home Goods for $4 each) The beautiful, pale pink ruffled curtains are also new, but they're not old. (Target, Simply Shabby Chic line) I do love them!
A mixture of new and old things in this little vignette. The little cottage was one of my Joli Paquet kits last year.. (or the year before?) The vintage pink ornaments and tinsel are the only lovely things I have ever found at a thrift store in my area.
The turning tower thing to the right is new to the studio too. It was a recent find from a local scrapbook store that closed. It has been a life saver, it hols so much inventory! My husband painted it white for me and I'm really loving it.
A few shots of some of my favorite vintage ornaments...
This little sweetie I made using both vintage and new parts. (wings can be found here)
I made up a few of these glittered reindeer, embellished with vintage velvet millinery and silk ribbons and listed them in the shop.
And if you would like to see a little more of the studio decked out for Christmas, treat yourself to this very lovely magazine!
I'm thrilled to be a part of this!
Be back soon with lots pretty, old, and Christmas-y things!
