A Simple and Cozy Winter Vignette

Christmas decor is still in my Great Room.

I plan to pack up and store the decorations away this coming weekend

as I will be housebound due to  the predicted 6 to 8 inches of snow

that will fall in our area. I must say, even though the snow can sometimes

be a problem with driving conditions in our area with the added ice,

I am looking forward to our first snowfall of the year.

I love the natural beauty that it brings and the sights and sounds

of the kids sledding down the hills behind our house on the golf course.

One of those kids is my hubby!

A Bar Cart or a Tea Cart?

When I placed the vintage drop leaf table that I painted in a corner of the guest room . . .

I had to re-locate the piece of furniture that was in that spot. Which was the Ethan Allen tea cart

that I found last year at an estate sale.

The Ethan Allen tea cart that I so very much wanted in our early years of marriage

but just could not afford it. Practicality always got in the way.
