A LITTLE BIT OF CHRISTMAS IN THE KITCHEN..........I love the red tulips with the Christmas greens. You have seen these water filled tubes before.......they are in front of my sink and are reflected into the mirror behind. I have no window over my sink.
Those red accents on the "gold" tree just didn't make it. As I sat in our Great Room looking at our tree at night, those red ornaments really bothered me. Then my daughter called and she said, "Mom, it looks junky, I don't like the red." She had read my blog and thought that the addition of red was just too much. I too kept looking and looking and there was something that just wasn't right. So, guess who took off all of the red........?????? That would be me.....I also added the nest too! A gold rush it is, but I do like it much better. In this season of opulence and access, collections being added to each year, when do you stop using all of those things that won your heart?
SIMPLE JOYS OF THE SEASON........................................
I love lambs and they are so at home on my tumbled marble counter top. Yes, I did use
tumbled marble when we put on our addition a few years back. Love the look and the patina
that has just seem to happen over the last few years. As a designer, I knew it was risky, as a
designer using it in my own home, I was willing to take the chance!! I have never been sorry.
My winter scene sits on one of my very favorite pieces of furniture, in the bay window in my living room.............it is a patisserie table that I purchased in France.
Well, I am giving a Christmas Tea on Sunday ..................so much to do, so much to accomplish and still so much to wrap (and send!!!) I hope you are all enjoying the season. It is such a beautiful, but crazy time. P.S. I am so happy that you have all been added to my list of THINGS TO DO!!!
