Welcome to White Wednesday hosted by my friend Kathleen at Faded Charm. I'm a little late today. Gee I thought I was going to have so much time after Christmas to blog more. haha!!!
The room the 2nd Christmas tree is in is our living room. When you have a family room and a living room it is often the living room that never gets used as much. I guess just for show.
I have to admit it is not the room that I would show off most of the year. Often it ends up with boxes and things I don't quite know what to do with yet. This time of year I finally get some time to organize and clean up.
It's a room that gets plenty of light with 4 full windows down to the floor. Sheers that were my Mothers are the only thing on the windows. I usually have long strips off white muslin that I wrap around the rods....but this winter season I decided to remove them.
I really love this room and in the Winter will sit here and drink our morning coffee.....but lately we've been on a tea kick. We have an old piano in the room so George does spend time in here playing the piano. I like the piano for decorating.
We all have our own talents I guess!
I'll show you that in a later post!
I decorate the tree mostly with neutrals adding copper and brown and lots of feathers. Makes for a primitive woodsy look. I guess I never get tired of it......it's been this way for years now. You know how much I love change and it's not like me to keep anything the same for long.
For now I'm just showing you the mostly white ones but nothing on this tree is really blaringly white.
This two tiered wire basket sits on our coffee table and is always fun to change around every year.
I used to have a few of these little windows and thought they'd be fun to make something interesting with them but I haven't been able to find the rest of them.
Problem with having such a large storage area above the shop.
Yes.... part of my New Years Resolution of reorganizing my storage area.
This cute little skate was given to me by a friend that bought it from Paula back when she sold at a local Church fair. I love it. She would do so well there....people would wipe her out in record time. I unfortunately never got to see it but if you've seen her house you can imagine how wonderful her booth was.
"A la Paula" as I like to call it!
Enjoy your New Year celebrations. Whether you bring in the New Year with good friends or you stay at home with your loved one with a good bottle of champagne remember to be thankful for all that you have.
I am so thankful for so many things in my life and especially for my husband, family, friends, my kitties and this year my wonderful and supportive blogging friends.
I hope to get to know you even better in 2010 and meet new bloggers too.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
go make it the best year of your life!
Hugs and Kisses!
