Worth the wait....


































Somethings are worth waiting for.......



















like my beautiful island John made me.....and my little $30 cabinet,all it needed was a fresh coat of paint....the silver pieces I found for $15 have a new home too....the island stools were a gift from my Dad, funny how things just seem to come together isn't it? My next project will be the sunroom.....my inspiration???? my new Jeanne D'arc curtains I won from Tracey over at "FRENCH LARKSPUR" I have no words to explain how happy I am......thank you so much Tracey, I will try to do them justice......~Chrissy~

Your little cabinet is lovely, the island looks about a hundred years old! Did you use reclaimed wood? It is really outstanding~ and the silver is wonderful, you have given me a new appreciation for my silver. Hugs, Cindy S.

good morning Chrissy!
Your house looks totally amazing! Did you plaster your walls? I did mine awhile back (our main floor) now they have a parchment paper paint treatment on them....but I've been thinking about a cool grey or white. Your walls look great. LOVE the table!!!!! All your accessorizing looks so good. Have a good day & congrats on the fab. curtain prize!!

You need to check out my post from yesterday about a store I found in Nashville. You would have liked her stuff!

I never thought I wanted a candleabra until I saw yours...how elegant, yet simple.
Your island is lovely. It oozes with character - looks as if it has aged and seen much history.

It all looks lovely Chrissy! I am so happy for you that you won Tracey's curtains! (just a tad green with envy but if I had to miss out at least they went to you!!) Enjoy your new island...so lucky to have John to build you such beautiful things...

Everything looks so beautiful! I'm sure you will do those curtains justice. The style is just exactly YOU! Also love the cross hanging from the platter. It showcases them both beautifully.

Dear friend...

Ohhhh my goodness!!! Ohhh Chrissy, I just adore your new kitchen island that your honey made for you!!! It's exquisite!!! I just love the look and feel of it...it looks as though it stepped right out of an old french country farmhouse!!! What a blessing to have such a sweet and talented honey!!! I just know that you're doin' that "happy dance" everytime you see this fabulous piece!!! Ohhh yes...sooo worth the wait!!! And...I just adore your white cabinet!!! Love, love, LOVE the beautiful vignette atop it!!! Love that mix of the old silver with the creamy white ironstone! Ohhh...I am going to have to copy this idea...hope you don't mind! I've been doing a lot of decorating with my silver lately...would love to pair it with some of my ironstone! I think it's a perfect look for a winter's decor!!!

Well my dear friend, I'm just soooo very happy for you!!! What a lovely Christmas gift!!! Oh yes, and the island stools are perfect! I would love to see more of them! What a sweet papa...to gift you with them!!! Ohhh...and one more thing...I love, love, LOVE that silver candelabra...it's divine!!! I have been looking for something like that with no luck!
