Can you believe it is 3 days until Christmas???
Are you ready?
I'm done buying, but still making!
You still have time to enter my Christmas Give-Away.
If you'd like my holiday cone just comment on this post!
On with my Christmas house tour.
Today I'm showing you our master bedroom.
Until Santa drops a big pile of Bella Norte under my tree I'll be settling with old chenille & muslin pillow cases.
Family photos are so important to me. If there's ever a fire I'd grab my pictures second.
I turned an old child's apron into a pouch for the top of my bed.
My Mothers baby shoes & other treasures in a bowl.
A pair of beautiful old stockings.
I started collecting them a couple of years ago, I'm up to 3 pairs!
Our wonderful secretary was a gift from my dear friend Judy. It was her Mother's & no one wanted it, can you imagine!
She is a precious friend to me & a surrogate Grandmother to my kids.
My Grandmothers high school portrait, her bible & one of my altered books.
I found the old violin & painted it white after seeing one last year at Ann's house.
The old french music card is from Corey Amaro, I had the pleasure of meeting her one year at Marburger.
This area off the bedroom is actually our back porch.
Since it's a covered porch I was able to hang a curtain rod & create a tiny room.
The kitchen window looks out onto the porch, so at night it's really magical!
This is our bathroom. I'll bet your thinking
'gosh this girl is always showing the toilet'!
My house isn't that big tho so I have to take advantage of every inch of space.
The picture above was taken at 6am so the lighting is weird.
I swiped this picture from Lori's blog.
The crocheted valance came from Warrenton last year.
The hanging cabinet cards was an idea I got from Tina.
Another collection, white beaded bags.
This is a wall in the toilet closet.
I used to sell real estate & they really call it a toilet closet!
Tomorrow I'll finish up the house tour & announce the winner of my Christmas give-away.
I was going to draw the name on Christmas Eve, but I kind of have a feeling we won't be blogging that day!
Last week Lily & her pal Caralyn (Cami's Grand) went to
Jennifer Babcock's mini art event,
Christma - licous!
They're starting their own junior art posse!
It was a really sweet day. They made crowns, pink trees & a bracelet that Lily is modeling.
I think she may have a future in game show modeling.
Tuesday night I hosted a little craft night get together with some friends.
I made massive sugar cookies & goodie bags.
These clay ornaments are all over Pinterest, they were very easy!
Cami & Jenny,
Charlene & Jan,
Cami, Cindy & Melissa laughing at one of Nicki's jokes.
We didn't make much art but we polished off some wine!
Charlene used some of my findings & whipped up an amazing necklace in about 30 minutes.
I have been so inspired by every ones blogs this season.
So many beautiful homes!! I will be joining Debra's party Friday to see more!
