Some Little Birdies told me.....

Hi Bloggerettes!  These little birdies told me that you are really busy.  Oh really! I said.  Imagine that! The same little birdies didn't run fast enough so I glittered them up!
 This is the breakfast room area where I just threw together a quick arrangement.  I found the little birds, painted them white and gave them some Christmas cheer.  I told you nothing was safe around here these days.


I've also been working on some things for my booth.
I just finished adding french images to these vintage pillow slips.


I repurposed a wooden mirror into a fabulous shabby vintage chalkboard.  Hard to part with this one.




Gizzy has been busy writing her Christmas Cards...

Okay that's it for now. 
Remember to slow down a little and enjoy the season.

Love those pillow slips, Sissie! I have saved your Etsy person for those transfers in my Favorites, although I haven't ordered anything yet to try. I'm thinking maybe after Christmas. I love the selection they have. Great chalkboard, too!

I am laughing because I think your right, if anything pauses in your home they might get painted and glittered! I love that chalkboard! Tell Gizzy that Charlie sends a kitty kiss! Who needs mistletoe! Hugs, Linda

LOVE the tablescape!

Christmas is going to be sparse at my house this year. This stinking appendix coming out last week has put the kibosh on my activities and my decorating. Oh well, there is always next year!

I hope your Holiday is full of LOVE and MAGIC!
