happy december!

 i have been decorating away at my humble abode...

the vintage ornament tree on the screen, is something i put together after being inspired by a similar idea i saw on pinterest....i simply wired old ornies onto a compost sifter screen that i pulled in from the garden...i love the look and it was so easy to do.

here is just a hint of what is going on at my home....
lots of whites and neutrals and a nod towards vintage...with just a touch of blue here and there...
    




 i snapped this picture of santa, two years ago at the dickens of christmas celebration here in franklin, tn....i am looking forward to this years dickens celebration, as i will be meeting a fellow blogger there....
i made the "believe" sign by twisting some raffia covered wire.
a glorious time of year, indeedy....
as we decorate and prepare our homes 
for celebration
 in honor of Him.

i will be sharing many more images in the next few weeks....
thank you so much for stopping by.

I'm loving your sifter frame for your ornament tree and looking forward to seeing the rest of your holiday decor!

Now that's what I call a Santa! And your wire lettering is a fabulous idea!

Hello there friend,
I've been so busy this past week that I didn't notice you'd updated! I love the vintage ornament "tree". It's such a cute idea, and you had everything you needed! That's even better. I tried something new that I already had as well. I just posted about it. I figured you've been busy decorating for your client. Can't wait to see more!

Erin! I love all your blues and whites making everything look so crisp and clean, yet vintage. Looking forward to seeing you this weekend! I have been sewing my "Dickens" dress all week... it really looks more like a Civil War dress, but hey , same time period. See you soon!

Cindy said...

You're so creative!!! Your ornaments on the screen are adorable, and oh my, that blue bench... it's wonderful. Girl you have the touch!

I so love that little ornament tree! I think maybe I could manage something like that. But D would not appreciate me appropriating his composting screen, haha! And your doily rocks are surely magic stones. First in line if you make more to sell.

Thanks for celebrating the season so beautifully.
