Christmas in the Sunroom

The first room in which I usually initiate my Christmas decorating each year,

other than the foyer, is my Sunroom.

This year was no different. I began decorating the room

by putting up my Memory Tree. The tree that is filled with ornaments

that I have collected and have been gifted to me over many, many years.

I was actually decorating this tree Halloween night!

Yes . . . placing ornaments on the tree in-between answering the calls of the

Trick or Treaters for their treats.

Now, it is definitely Christmas in the Sunroom.

A Sweet Treasure and the Winners

When I was in Maine antiquing with the lovely Linda (Lulu’s Musings),

I came across this sweet treasure.

Everything about it attracted me to it . . . the color, the pattern and the shape.

When we completed our rounds of the shop

I headed back to take a second look,  it truly called my name

and I had to take it home with me!

I Danced to the Furniture Shuffle in the Dining Room

I danced to the Furniture Shuffle in the Dining Room the other day.

It’s definitely my favorite dance.

Who were my dancing partners?

My Ethan Allen Martha Washington chairs that I just had reupholstered.

Now that Martha and Ethan can dance!

If you remember, that pair were in the bay window sitting area of the dining room.

Where did they go?

Day 2 of the bHome bloggers Summer Tour and a Giveaway!

Last night after I got the patio furniture back in its place on the upper porch

after the power washing guys left, I took 5 to recharge and waved at my hubby

as he was mowing the lawn. He waited for the sun to set a little as the heat index

was 106! As I sat and enjoyed the dusk of the evening I noticed so many fireflies.

Yes, summer has arrived . . . and I love seeing the twinkling of the fireflies.

So speaking of summer nights and fireflies . . .
