No Such Thing ....

                        Happy Monday morning!!!!  Found some photos on Pinterest yesterday that I had to share with you...
                          After seeing these (and a thousand others) I have decided that there is no such thing as too much greenery this time of year....
                       from a small understated amount like this basket....
                           to this stunning photo...to me this is sheer perfection..do you like it?
                      this table setting is divine and of course the mantle below has always been a huge inspiration for me...there is just something so inviting about a room filled with nature....I seem to really have the Christmas decor bug this year...now if I could only get the shopping bug I 'd be in great shape!!!    x0x0

An old white box...a bare spot & a plate rack...

                  Morning..... been busy in the kitchen adding bits of this and that for Christmas..went to a wonderful tag sale on Sunday and found this old white box.....I love it!!!!
                           I had been wanting something special for my island and this is it....
                     One thing led to another and I decided to add some holiday cheer to "the waste of space" above the cupboards...do you look there in other peoples kitchens I know I do ?!
                     Then I went down the basement and got the plate rack John made for me last year...
            it fits perfectly above the stove...don't know why I ever took it down...well thats all I wanted to show you...going for a walk now to see if I can steal some more greenery from somewhere....I mean find some greenery lying about somewhere....; )  

           So glad you came by...I love reading the notes you leave me....xoxo

Adding Winter Warmth.....

                             I just can't help myself....I love the change of season...yes even this one!
                      I love that we spend more time indoors...under blankets..fire place on..
                     what better time to do a winter vignette on the sunroom mantle...house smells of balsam and pine....
                  welcome winter...as long as you may be !!  Have a great week everyone  xoxo

Our French / Industrial / On A Budget Living Room......


                    Well...it isn't fussy or fancy...and it may not wow you...but for us its perfect!
             Gone are the over stuffed  pieces that made this room look dark and dreary...

                        we sold each and every one of them..
                    
                 now we have  a living room that we can all enjoy....where nothing is too special or too precious ...

                   a room to sit and read in..or to curl up and watch a movie (yes there is a t.v. under my french chair picture)...
            after all it is a "living room" and it will be put to good use I can assure you!  John made the bench ...the table and the shelf....I think they are just what the room needed to give it that sort of rustic edge.  I am so glad you came  by to see it....now I am going to sit and flip through some decor magazines and books to get some Christmas ideas ...can you believe it is November already?!  xoxo
