Where has the time gone?!!
By now I would be well on my way of holiday decorating and preparations.
However, lagging behind this year ~ ~
~ ~ So I have become comfortable in the fact that I am scaling down this year…
Or as “scaled down” as I get :).
I finished the sunroom today.
I recently purchased an area rug from Ikea for this room
~ ~ a temporary item until I find the “one”
I am sure many of you have seen my sneak peeks of some items in this room ~ as this tree.
~ ~ with the vintage quilted Snowman Patriotic Star.
A flocked tree was in this space last year ~ miss the beautiful tree, but not the mess!
The grapevine and cotton wreath was in another room last year..
~ ~ thought it would be fine in this room this year with a more rustic feel.
Scales are such great platforms for any type of item. .
~ ~ and can’t forget to have bird in the vignette ~ nesting in a Charleston basket gifted from a friend.
The scale ~
My new addition to the room – A vintage bird cage..
~ ~ it is in great shape..just needs a little facelift.
It looks as though the original color was blue from the paint flaking off.
I originally just had the Santa and the two trees in this “vignette” but I just couldn’t leave it alone!
~ ~ I added some stems of felted holly to give it a punch of color.
I always had Yankee candles burning in my home . .
~ ~ one year, my son bought me this Yankee Candle Byers Choice Caroler
Along with the caroler, there is a carousel horse ornament set from 1989 ~
~ ~ that my granddaughter still plays with. ~ Added faux pine stems to the cotton arrangement.
Can’t have enough birds!
And when you have lots of birds around ~ ~ it is only right to have a bird’s nest fern in the room!
~ ~ I purchased this great crock from Kristen. I originally was going to gift it, but decided to keep it!
Oh and by the way when I bought this rug at Ikea, Kristen’s mom Linda, was with me.
~ ~ we were there buying fabric and other things. She is doing a project for me ~ Stay tuned.
Years and years ago . . when I lived in North Central Florida . .
~ ~ my sisters and I would make our annual trek to the McIntosh Fall Craft Fair..it is always a great fair.
There was a vendor there that I would buy all my cute vintage quilt items from.
I looked forward to that booth every year!
A couple of my large Hallmark collection of cars and trucks ..
~ ~ I love that some of them have Christmas trees in them.
And if you would like to see a “Mini Christmas Tour” of my house . . .
Please hop on over to 11 Magnolia Lane . . . where the lovely ladies there are featuring me today!!!
Have wonderful day of inspiration!
