Good morning Chrissy!

Thanks for stopping by today & your nice comment! I would love to make burlap pillows...it looks like you have done quite a bit w/ burlap. Have you washed yours? I've heard definitely do not wash & I've heard it's fine??? Do you have any experience w/ that? please tell! ;-)

I really love your entryway w/ the bench & burlap pillows! I wish we could click on your pics to see everything a wee bit better because your home is gorgeous! Maybe you could go around & snap pics & show us!?!

Have a great day!

I just realized that the bench I was referring to is actually in your kitchen...oops, still love it. I found one like that at Monticello Antiques just the other day...thought about it..still thinking about it...

Hi Chrissy!

It's always a pleasure to see what you are doing on this charming blog of yours!! I love the little winter vignette. Cedar is one of my very favorite evergreens to snip and use for winter holiday decorating!! Because it's leaves are a little flatter and more sturdy than others, it is my first choice for embellishing the tops of picture and mirror frames--it behaves so nicely when you arrange it and stays put with very little help! It also helps that we have a cedar tree nearby that offers free greeenery!!

Thanks so much for sharing your enthusiasm and creativity!!
Warmly,
Tracey

Hi Sea! How I've missed your timeless vignettes, each one a miniature work of art in itself! Thanks for stopping by, "talk" soon, my friend!

Hello Dearheart...

I was just so happy to find your note, my friend! How have you been doing? Your "Season of Change" vignette is beautiful! I love those pretty votive candle holders...so ornate! I also took a tour through your "French Treasure" and "Rhapsody in White"...both posts are simply divine my friend! I love everything about those gorgeous vignettes!!! In the French Treasure vignette, I loved that beautiful light or is it a candle lamp? So beautiful!!!

I imagine that you are busy trying to stay warm today...I see that storms have moved into your area! We are having our first big storm of the season...if fact, we are under winter storm warnings. I bet we have about 8in. of snow so far and it's still going strong! I have my little wood stove going full force today! Keeping warm and cozy! Hehe! Well Darlin'...so very nice to hear from you and I really enjoyed your posts!!! Of course, you ARE the queen of fabulous vignettes!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

That's such a pretty tray. It makes me want to pull out my silver trays and do some "styling".

Have a great weekend,
