Merry Christmas & A Winner


Well tomorrow's Christmas Eve so if I'm going to finish up my holiday home tour it better be now!


 

Since I was doing a nature thing this year I decided to do a garden theme in the kitchen.

 


Sensei & friend Cindy came over one day to help with the decorating. 
It really helps to have a friend who styles for a living!



 
I can't really take credit for this amazing window since Cindy did it all. 
Okay, I made the banner & the chippy garden edging is mine.
I can take credit for that.




It was fun mixing up my ironstone, silver & goodies from my stash.





I inherited the rosepoint crystal from my Great Aunt.




The concrete statue was swiped from the garden.

 







A little Rose Hicks influence here.




The wine muff was a thrift store find. 
 I think it was a whole $1.50.










The birdhouses all came from my garden which is now naked.





 
Yes I do cook.
I just scoot the flammables over to the side.



A look at the living room.
The bucket of Lego's are behind the sofa.

 




Christmas banner was a gift from sweet Ann Perry.

 



Our mantel is very narrow & hard to decorate.
I kept it simple this year.










All this Christmas preparation has worn poor Izzy out!
Oh yes,
the winner of my Christmas Give-away is
Sandi from A Cottage Muse!



I'm linking up again with Debra & everyone else for
I have gotten so much inspiration from this blog party!



One last thing......

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!!
Be safe, eat well & enjoy!

Your house is amazing- I had to go back and look at every single picture to catch all the little details.

Have a happy holiday- I'm off to do some "personal shopper" work.

So glad to have found your blog! Everything is absolutely beautiful! (And with three babies!) Love your style! (I, too, have things on my stovetop right up until time to cook . . . my husband only complains a little when he has to move things so HE can cook!)
