holiday prep










things are beginning to take shape, the house always smells wonderful from the holiday baking. ribbon, thread, twine and buttons come out of drawers. Pine cones adorn the staircase doilies find a new purpose and mental lists make unto paper.

doilies on the stairs are perfect. little things that catch one' eye. putting things where you'd least expect them. you home has a wonderful feeling of space, light and peace. perfect for the holidays. and every day.

Your place is so cute. I love all the Christmasy touches. I love Christmas. What a great wrap idea for the parcel...I might 'borrow' that idea for some of the gifts I have!

Very sweet ideas! The stairs remind me of my grandmother's house - just the color and texture of them.

Your home is looking lovely. I wish I was near enough to share that fabulous studio space with you. Got room for a stowaway?

Wishing you a happy December.

You know, I can always come here and find some really, really cool photos. Not your ordinary pix of decorating or anything, but photos that are almost abstract, magical, and definitely works of art.

And the house looks wonderful. I'm so jealous but also so impressed! :)

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
