Progress and A Little Christmas

Well, I am pleased to say, camera has been found and I have some before pictures and a couple after.
It's been five days,  since we began our venture.  The furniture is in place, the main tree is up, garland up(need to add decorative touch), wreaths are up in the front windows and things are in place on the front porch.
I am liking the progress so far.  I am being very selective as to what goes where.  However; there is still more to be done.  I still need to accessorize in the living room, do some touch ups in the kitchen, clean the blue room and add just a tad more Christmas decor here and there.
Whew!  This is just like moving in.
Here is where we started on Thursday:


Just like moving in . . . all empty, a blank canvas!
And here is where it all went!






Yep! Just like starting from scratch.
And there is still more to do. 
Now . . .
Looking in from dinning area.



Living room side

I am really liking this arrangement.  Our hutch was to the right where, I now have the buffet.  And in the living room the couches are in a L-shape both facing the tree.
And our first snow . . .


I will share some more Christmas after I finish with all the details.
I am keeping things glamorously simple this year.
And I am Loving the Gold, Silver and White theme.
Thanks for stopping by.


Well, we are nearly complete.  Did I mention in my last post it was as if we were just moving in?  I don't remember moving being this exhausting . . .!
The carpets are clean, I rearranged some rooms and I really like the living room arrangement (don't know why I never thought of doing this way before).  We spent all of Saturday and yesterday putting everything back and I got the main tree decorated.
That is it thus far, but the good news is we are on the down slide YEAH!!!!!!!!!!
I wanted to share some before pictures with you while I finished up some last minute details but the camera has come up missing at the moment
I will be back soon.



Just a little Inspiration . . .
Loving these!

Thank you for stopping by! 
I have made a few changes and did some cleaning up here on my blog.  Sometimes, don't you just feel like you need a fresh start?  I am still working on my blog list (one's I follow), I had to clear it completely off in order to get them to all to come up.
So I added some new ones and I am still incorporating some of my favorite "Oldies."
I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving holiday.  We will be working on cleaning projects around the house and getting our home ready for decorating and upcoming entertainment.
I will posts pictures from around the house once we are finished.
I am so very excited!!
See ya soon!


Gathering Ideas

With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching, I get anxious to settle on my Christmas theme for the year.  I fell so in love with trees from last year that were decorated in gold & silver and often with a dash of white.
So, I am pretty sure this will be my theme this year:
Silver, Gold and White.
I am looking to do something peaceful, elegant, calm
and yet, simple.
A lot of greenery, plenty of white and cream colored candles and scented ones for added warmth.
Let's take a look at some amazing ideas.
I am also loving the red and white theme too!
Do you chose a different theme each year or are you more traditional?
I am anxious to begin adding touches but, I am patiently waiting until our Thanksgiving holiday has been honored.
I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts!
