.....From Holiday to Winter.....

I have to say...the past two months are a blur. Sure, the holidays are always busy, but I just can't believe that there are less than 40 hours left in 2011!

I truly had intentions of beautiful holiday decor. I've been looking at Pinterest and Blog World since Halloween! Oh, the vignettes in my head, which never came to fruition!! Sadly, as sometimes happens, I returned from a week of work travel and threw some decorations around the house. Nothing I wanted to photograph and share this year.

Instead, I thought I'd show some close-ups which I will attempt to transition from Christmas into Winter scenes. I would say I'll take "after" pictures...but I'm learning not to over-promise!

I hope you all have a happy and healthy New Year!!

Why I haven't been painting furniture - Part One

I have two beautiful tables waiting to be painted. They're gonna look great when they're done!! But they will probably have to wait until it gets colder & not so nice outside...a luxury I can make use of thanks to the low VOC of AS Chalk Paint! Here's the first in my series of day/week trips explaining what I've been up to which doesn't include painting furniture...the first explanation comes from stunningly beautiful Newport, RI!

Do you blame me for making the tables wait??

Stay tuned for northwest New Jersey and some gorgeous fall foliage!!

My Fall inspired by YOU!!

I have had so much fun on Pinterest, re-pinning all the wonderful pictures from blogland. After several trips to Marshalls, the dollar store, and some great flea markets, I took a shot at achieving a look of my own. I finally had time to take some pictures they are!

Peek-a-Boo, Sydney!!

The front porch is still a work in progress, but I hope to have some pictures soon.

Thanks for your inspiration! Hope you all have a wonderful week.
