Angel Wings

Hi Bloggerettes!  I hope you haven't totally exhausted yourselves and that you are saving room for some Christmas fun.   Can you imagine how exausted that Santa Claus must be on Christmas morning!  Poor guy sure works hard and just think how careful he has to be when he comes upon a blogger's livingroom! Whoa Nellie......better not mess up anything and walk lightly or else he just might find himself on somebody's post....

Meanwhile.....I have been playing around with my angel wings.
I've had them everywhere and  now they are in the kitchen on the bar stools..... 

 This is a view looking back into the livingroom.  Just shows you how open my home is and how hard it is to decorate.
I found these wonderful plates at Home Goods.  I told y'all that I went on a shopping spree...

 Sorry pics aren't so great.  The light in the cabinet caused a glare but I think you get the idea.

Let's get out there and sew, paint, photograph, write, crochet, knit, repurpose, craft or find something wonderful and share it with all of us. between all of this remember to stop and enjoy the season.

Those angel wings are FABULOUS!!!! But the brown transferware takes the cake! I am on the hunt right now for brown's very hard to find!

Your home is beautiful, Sissie! I knew it would be. I'm trying my best to not exhaust myself so I can enjoy the season! It's hard sometimes. I adore those plates! I have red transferware but I've been wanting some brown to mix and match. Merry Christmas, sweet lady! May you and your family have a wonderfully blessed Christmas!

Hi Sissie:
Everything is just perfect and serene! I love it all. Would you be willing to share the name/mfgr. of the paint you used on your walls? It beautiful with all your furnishings.
Merry Christmas Week, my friend.

I love those wings, Sissie! Our new place is similar in layout. It's totally open from the living room, across the dining area and into the kitchen. It does make a smaller place feel bigger though. Since we moved in I've had to put some wall decor in the attic or donate it because, of course, this means I have less walls to put things on! I think you've done very well with the decorating in your home and I love the natural light you get in.

I LOVE seeing pictures of your home! I love that it's open and bright! Very pretty. Those counter stools with the wings are just lovely. I like your new plate, too. I can't go in Homegoods without spending a bundle!

Merry Christmas, Sissie!


Sonia said...

I think your home is one of my favorites in the bloggy world. I love all the creamy whites and design of the home and especially your kitchen! You always have it decorated beautifully. Truly a wonderful place to create in and those angel wings on the bar stools are the most precious! Merry Christmas!
