A very Merry Christmas to you and yours! I hope you are enjoying this joyful day with family and loved ones…in this season of love and giving, sharing in whatever traditions bring you happiness!
I wanted to share a quick post with you on a few Christmas preparations I’ve been working on for our guests tonight.
I’ve been frantically working on a partial one room makeover the last few weeks and have almost completed all my little projects. Even though it’s not a very large space, there are so many little pieces that have to come together to make it the ‘whole’ look I envision…in all my DIY projects and preparations I have grown to a new level of appreciation for those who have worked on other room (or home) make overs! Whew! It’s a task I tell ya! But oh-so-worth-it in the end.
Our dining area was just screaming for a little facelift, heck, even a light mud mask would do! So I dreamt of fabrics, patterns and paint, and what DIY skills I could pull out of my bag. On my wish list were the Dining Chairs
, Dining Table
, DIY cowhide rug
, and DIY roman shade
(coming soon). I’ll be sharing each project and it’s progress in their posts later on, but for now I wanted to share with you my Christmas decor and tablescape for our dinner guests! Last week I posted my No Mantle, No Problem
solution and here’s what I’ve been working on since then…
A little Christmas vignette with my DIY Nate Berkus
tray, vintage gold glassware, and DIY deer silhouette
(post coming soon!)
I was able to use these vintage Christmas dishes and some crystal glassware I’ve collected, but the main show is my grandmother’s wedding china…after losing her this year it really means a lot to have a piece of her in our Christmas feasting and festivities.
(Spotted: my DIY cowhide project!)
Isn’t the gold greek key fabric to die for??! They were a last minute project purchase after a BIG fat fabric fail from an online order! Guess everything works out just as it should 🙂 I’ll be posting a before and after of these golden goddesses later on!
Sweet baby Jesus…all 8 lbs 6 oz (*shameless movie quote*)
Cheers! From our home to yours.
“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be for all people. For to you is born, this day in the city of David, a Savior Who is Christ, the Lord.” – Luke 2:10-11
Joy to the world…The Lord is come!
Lemons to Love,
