Welcome! My name is Abby and this is where I like to share my latest projects. I believe a home should be cosy and inviting, more being more! So if you enjoy playing in your home or garden, making something delicious on your stove, or just mixing things up for the holidays, come on in and have a visit!
Ok so think I have figured out how to get pictures off my file to put on here...hhhmmmmm
or not. Well, not a good picture but a picture.
Here is a picture of our master bedroom before I started painting,a week after we moved in...yes I drive Kevin crazy! Half of the room was red and the other half was yellow. I HAD to fix it!
We have never lived in a house without me altering almost everything. You could say that it is an addiction. Not that I think that my tastes are superior but I have a slight ocd thing going on...I asked Kevin if he thought I have a problem and he just shrugged...hahaha.
I am a V.V. Boutique shopper, sales rack, thrift store junky, and I have to do everything with in budget.
The duvet and shams I got on sale, blanket on sale, picture vv's, you get the idea.
Now the room is truly relaxing.
Silver tray was inherited from my grandmother many years ago.
This cabinet is from our living room in our old house...
and I actually wanted a TV in our bedroom.
Hope that you have a santuary that takes your worries and stresses away too.
I love all the christmas decorations, the food and the time with family and friends.
This Christmas is no different. I love the lights on the christmas tree in the early morning or the evening and all the glitz that sparkles when the light shimmers off of them. No, I am not ready to take Christmas down yet.
We are going to enjoy this time a little longer...
No boxing up my precious santas or bows and greenery..:)
Maybe if I just tweek things a little?..
There I feel better...
I just spent some time today cleaning our house and playing in our entrance
Hope that you are enjoying the holidays. We had family here for the evening last night and had a wonderful visit. So nice to see them, thats what I love about this time of the year, we get to enjoy more company. :)
Yes, I know this is cheating but I have to be creative to show you our tree without showing our wall colors. So here is our Christmas tree for 2010. :)
This is a pretty little candle holder on top of a white mirror with the reflection of the dining room chandelier behind the crystals.
Have a happy holiday! Enjoy what you have and dream of what may be
I am going to spend the next couple of days getting ready for the big guy! I have baking I haven’t started, presents I haven’t wrapped and still a little more shopping to do. Its like this every year, I plan to be completely organized by the beginning of December but it never works out that way.
At least my snowbaby tree is up... each one is so sweet and special to us. My sister in law has given us one each Christmas for many many years :) so we are now able to decorate our tree using mostly snowbabies.
It all gets a little crazy around here, but with the tree lights on and the day fading away we really enjoy it!
Hope you enjoy the next few days getting your nest ready for the Holidays!
