The Buffet….

I am slowly but surely getting my Christmas decorating done….I have gone in a totally different direction this year than I normally do….what is UP with that??  I am, after all, the glitter Queen!  But this year I find myself drawn to serene and calm….the Season I suppose….paired with my state of mind….

I thought I would share some photos of my buffet in my dining room…









pre-greenery…and a sunnier day….




I ordered a vinyl and applied it to the mirror…it was easy!  The dolls and the lamb were my mothers :)  Steve made me the little wooden riser as I needed something to “lift up” that little vignette…

Sharon and I were eating at the Mellow Mushroom Saturday and could not help but notice the lovely green LARGE bushes lining the parameters of the parking lot.  Suffice to say that we snipped a limb or two or three or four and that is what you see on the buffet…..Disclaimer….no large green bushes were permanently damaged in the decorating of this buffet….just sayin’

Thank you so much for stopping by…I will be posting more as I move through the decorating abyss…..

Have a Great Day!

I am joining in for Wow Us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style and Whatever Wednesday at Momma Hens Coop!  Friday I will be joining Debra at Common Ground  for Vintage Inspiration Friday, Honey at 2805 for her Potpourri Party and Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage.  Please stop by these great parties and be INSPIRED!

It’s in the Details…

I have been busy busy trying to get my Christmas decorating done….and I am a long way from done!!  But I realized I had not posted my finds at the Country Living Fair in Atlanta, so I thought I would do that.  As you may (or may not) know, I love the “smalls”….those little treasures that I can tuck into a little nook or cranny that just adds that something extra….it’s all about the details…so I suppose that is why I am drawn to the little things…..

Can you guess what I purchased in this photo?  The wasp nest….I LOVE these!  Steve looked at me like I had three heads when I took this out….he said, “I have torn many of those down and thrown them away.”  I said, well, don’t throw them away anymore….they are valuable!  I love their texture….




I also love old millinery….I’m not sure if I spelled that right….all I know is I love them…

those velvety leaves are just perfect!



I also got the basket with more flowers under the dome…..love it!



and these clothespins….



Little things you an just tuck anywhere….

It was dark and hard to get a good picture of my lamp….I love my lamp!  It’s RED!



You know I am freaky for little chairs too…

I got this one at Hobby Lobby…the little silver birds were my mom’s :)…I miss her…




The “Sadie”…I have been trying to get a photo of her FOREVER but she isn’t still long enough…..she is in CONSTANT motion….my other three “old” cats look at her like “what is WRONG with that cat?”

As you can see I was unpacking the Christmas “stuff”…


Hope to get a lot accomplished this weekend….I have high hopes….

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous weekend :)
