My Sister's House...

I wish that I could say this is my house, but it's not....it's my sisters!
I just had to share some of the loveliness that she creates...

Our tastes are very similar.  We both love glitz, mirrors, burlaps and bling...candlelabras, ironstone and more.  Pretty much all the stuff that you bloggers love too.

She found this candlelabra light fixture at an antique shop (for a steal) and just look how cute the little ironstone pitchers look hanging along with the crystals.

We love silver too...
Isn't this the cutest chalkboard?  I love the saying and the lettering...girl's got it gone on I tell ya.

She just started collecting white and ironstone pieces...you'd never know it from the looks of her cabinet cause it looks like she's been collecting it forever.



Sister found this wonderful table at the Raleigh Flea Market.  She painted it with ASCP.  It's so perfect in her living room.

More silver and bling vingettes...

More mirrors and a small sampling of her pink flamingo collection...
A sweet little candlelabra hanging in the kitchen window collecting pretty sunlight...

Hope you enjoyed this little tour of her lovely home.  The best part is now that we live close together again I can run right over to see what's new.  Gotta love that!

That's it for today so be sure and get out there this week and create, make, sew, photograph, write, cook, repupose or find something wonderful and share it with all of us.

I sure do love white, and white upholstery, but with my kids and gtandkids...holy cow...they'd be a whole different color in no time. But I can dream right!

Your sisters house is soooo pretty! It reminds me of your house. It's got to be so fun to be that close to each other now. I love that she has a pink flamingo collection! It's such a cute, funky, and whimsical addition to the whole look, plus it adds a touch of pink!

Your sisters home is so pretty...and I love her printing on the chalkboard, I am so jealous of people who can make their chalkboards look good. I can never make mine look that good! I am so happy for you that you and your sister live close now. That is great!

Hello sweet Sissy! Glad you are near to your sister now, and making your home all cozy once again. Your sister's home is lovely. Love that tray with Baby It's Cold Outside! Hope you didn't get hit badly with the storm. We have another Nor'Easter coming to NJ tonight into tomorrow! After a week without electricity, I hope it doesn't go out again.
