A Gift for You!

                                                  It is a wintry white day here on the Island as we
                                                  received over 20 cm of snow here causing
                                                 all schools to cancel for the day. It is early
                                                 for a snow day but I know some kiddo's who
                                                 were happy for a day off!
                                                   These photos were taken in our little
                                                   conservatory a few years ago on a day similar
                                                   to this one.
                                                    Anyway, grab a cup of tea or coffee
                                                and enjoy a look through a free online
                                                 Christmas ,magazine that I am featured
                                                 in along with some pretty talented bloggers.
                         I was pleasantly surprised to get an email a few months
                                   ago from Kerryanne ~ the editor of the online magazines
                                   Simply Shabblicious. You can visit her on her blog
                                  Shabby Art Boutique or her facebook.
                                   Kerryanne asked me if I would be a contributor to her
                                   new Christmas Simply Shabblicious magazine so I
                                    happily said yes!

                                     So as a gift to you, you can view the whole magazine
                                    on line by clicking on the link below.

The Rest of the Story

                                                          Today, I am back with the rest of
                                                          the story.......some more photos of
                                                         our Christmas Cottage.
                                                         The table is made from my husband's
                                                         grandmother's old Singer sewing
                                                                     Shooting into the mirror.

                                                                  The corner cupboard......did I
                                                                  mention before that my husband
                                                                 made this for me so I could display
                                                                 my dishes.
                                                               I bought several of these lace covered balls at
                                                               a yardsale.
                                                                     This doll was a gift several years
                                                                      ago ~ love the antique lace.
                                                                     I covered the chairs with vintage chenille
                                                                    Some real greenery adds a pop of color.

           Love this mirror with scrolled trim.

                                 .           Well, that just about covers it all
                                                         I have been decorating in the house too,
                                                        of course but haven't had time to photograph it yet.

                                                                           Thank you for visiting,
