Things I Love

Hi Bloggerettes!  I love tucking little bottle brush trees here and there.
And, I love a cloche or two filled with Christmas pretties...

A few deer and candy canes....

A fat kittie who thinks she's a reindeer...

I'm off to do some last minute shopping!

Oh, and did I tell you how much I love all of you??? Well, I do, I really, really do~

Good Morning Sissie Sweetie...
Oh Girl, right back at you. You are SO loved.

Adore the cloche with the deer, and those bottle brush trees do add to the festivities. Everything looks so beautiful at your Shabby Cottage sweet friend.

Why even Gizzy seems to be excited about all the to do everywhere. I am sure Gabby is too.

Hope you get those last minute packages picked up, shopping done and everything ready for the big day.

May God richly bless you and your family this CHRISTmas season sweet friend. I know you have richly blessed me with your friendship.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Everything is sooooo gorgeous here at your Shabby Cottage. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Tammy at Tattered and Timeless said...

Love all your stuff as you know. I could swoon for hours at your booth spaces. I just need to put you on my list of places to have a girls weekend- shopping in Sissie's spaces- fun I bet.
Thanks so much for your encouraging words on the closing of my booth. I do need to find a place like you have. Seems not many are on this boat here - YET. I'll wait them out and get them to like this wonderful white shabby world we embrace.
Either that or I'll invade your space and just swoon.

Pam @ Frippery said...

Deer and bottle brush trees, two favorite here! BTW your profile pic is darling! Love you back, Pam

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Dear Sissie, Thank you for all the inspiration!

Sharon Wengel said...

Sissie , all your vignettes are so pretty !And you know we love you too !
To answer your question to me , I had my slipcover custom made from an online company ,( Todoes , Now Needle and Shear's) they did a fabulous job of fitting my sofa from my measurements, but it took them 7 months from start to finish , I was almost ready to give up and make them myself. Not so sure that would have been so pretty.

June said...

Sissie, I have loved looking over your beautiful holiday home tonight. I love, love, love your Christmas banner. Every thing you do is beautiful my friend!
Merry Christmas to you sweetie...

Denise said...

Your decor is beautiful. I hope you got all of your shopping finished.
Merry Christmas!

We love you right back.
