You know the kind where you are working non-stop...
Doing 10 things at once...
And then hubby calls to see if he can pick something up at the grocery and I am thinking...
Why are you calling?
He had to be joking!
No...the clock agreed with him...my day ran away from me!
Just once I wish getting ready for Christmas at my house didn't involve painting furniture!
But since it did again this year...I am not quite finished!
The Horton's blog shoppe paypal buttons are still not working
And I can't seem to figure out why...
And then it started to snow!
Nothing is sticking yet but wow!
I wasn't really ready for snow today!
Although I am thankful for it because I want to get some photos of Tinker house in the snow...
So, maybe tomorrow if we get enough covering...I will do just that!
It has been overcast all day so please forgive the few photos I was able to take.
I will try again tomorrow!
This mirror is actually for my new hallway in the house...but the hall wasn't ready for it...
So, I brought it out to the cottage for Christmas!
Do you like it?
It is a zinc frame and feels really French to me...so I love it!
It matches the sconces that are meant for my new dining room...but again, not ready for them so I flanked the tv over the mantle!
And forgot to straighten things on the shelves! (hee,hee)
I will the next time I take pictures!
I had hoped to put my tree in this grey wash wheelbarrow piece but it was too tall so...
I am going to fill the basket with our presents instead!
this zinc chalkboard is from Horton's
(actually...so is the mirror and sconces!)
I decorated the tree with pinecones, dustymiller and crystal pieces.
I did the top of the tree with some of those lit branches(we carry at the store)
And 2 kinds of grey ribbon!
I am just NOT happy with my pictures!
I hope you can make out the nativity under the cloche!
Like I said....I will try again tomorrow!
I also brought in a room divider/screen made from antique shutters!
And a vintage frame!
(I will show you the next time )
I love this vintage tarnished silver urn!
And of course...mercury glass...one of my favorite things year round!
even the windows got greened and pinecones!
I did manage to get a couple shots of my antique chandelier parts!
I am going to use them in my new closet as wall hooks!
So...what do you think so far?
I will take some more photos in the next few days and see if they turn out better!
I actually wanted to show you some estate jewelry I purchased at the same antique mall in Austin..
.but they are just not photographing well today!
It's probably the photographer!
I hope you are having a great week!
And sincerely hope it isn't has crazy as mine has been thus far!
And I will be visiting everyone soon!
I can't wait to see everyones homes done for the Holiday!
And thank you for listening to me rattle on!
Like I said...it has been one of Those days!
Tomorrow I will be in Tipton trying to see if I can get the blog shoppe to work!
Pray for me and the Horton's!
In the meantime though...if you see something...
Call the store and we will invoice you via email!
Just until I get it to work!
Until next time!
