I'm ready to play house!!!

Today I am a happy girl!!!  The new carpet is down and the bathroom is one day away from completion!!!!! 

I'm so happy that I decided to do a little Christmas decorating and show y'all what I've done.

A wooden box full of this and that plus some paperwhite bulbs...

A little white tree in the living room corner and a small twig tree...

My mantel, simply done...

A little kitchen vingette with birds and lights...
With all the work done I can finally "play house!"  I'll be back to show some pictures of all the changes we've made.

Love your mantel, Sissie! Pretty white trees too. I really like the twig tree!
I'm so happy things are nearing completion and you can start having fun again.
I got me some mercury glass candle sticks for my mantel and you were my inspiration. I just have to get one more. Like you, I will leave them out all year round. Love 'em!

Christmas blessings,
