Christmas revisited...
Christmas 2007 is now over and all packed away but I still have visions of sugar plums dancing in my head. I think this Christmas was the first Holiday I have really gone all out-in about 3 years. Christmas 2005 brought Erica and Josh's wedding and I was in no state to decorate one more thing - too busy painting 150 white tree branches and thinking only of a beautiful wedding on New Years Eve. Christmas 2006 was the first holiday without our Mother and I just wanted to get through it- to be honest. So this year I decided it was my year to enjoy decking my halls. I hosted the Preservation for Quaint Old Homes Lunch for about 60 women like me who live in old Homes. That was so much fun because those women love the same things I love -all things old and chippy( is that a word) They are the most creative women in my town and look forward to visiting another old home each month. Not to mention great food! The week before Christmas I treated myself and had all my bestest friends to my home for dessert. Isn't that what Christmas is about sharing it with friends and family you love? I will look back on this Christmas with great fondness I not only made it through the holiday but with a truly Merry Heart....May we keep Christmas in our hearts all year long!

Hi Molly, what wonderful eye candy! I am a huge fan of red and a huge fan of toile, so that red toile wall is to die for! I also live in an old house (80 yrs old) and unfortunatly all the walls are original beadboard and no place to put up something like that. ;-( LOL And yes, chippy is definitely a word!! ;-)
