so this is christmas

I'm a little sad that Christmas is already this Saturday!


I just need more Christmas. More get togethers and celebrations. More cups of cheer. More glitter and twinkling lights. More baking. More gift wrapping. More jingle bells and Christmas carols.

The magic just seems to dissapear after the 25th.

Santa and I went to a Christmas party over the weekend at B&F's.


It really is the most wonderful time of the year.

some christmas cheer


Christmas in the living room.

And a view of the rest of the room.

The TV console desperately needs a white treatment.
And the newest addition to the living room is on the left.


It's a new Christmas cabinet from DrewB!

I just love the window-paned doors.

Merry Christmas!

red & white

In the mood for some Christmas baking.

Wouldn't these canisters make great gift containers for Christmas goodies?

And what's Christmas baking without some Christmas kitchen towels?

The dining table BEFORE:



And the AFTER:




Are you noticing a trend here - the invasion of the color white?

china cabinet before & after

You may recall this post when we picked up the new china cabinet pictured below.

This was the cabinet BEFORE.


And this is the AFTER:

Much better.

I'm enjoying all of the white.


And still playing around with the positioning of everything on the cabinet, but it's always so much fun to have a new piece to play with.

So I know that it seems soon, but I've already toyed with the idea of selling it and finding a new piece to paint. I do like the turnout. I just want to paint and all the excitement of finding a new piece. We'll see what Drew says.


I could paint all day.

hello december

I don't know how you made it here so fast.

I love the snow that was falling this morning and that it feels like December today.
