This holiday season I decided to add rich vintage red
to my neutral palette. A few touches here and there
definitely warm things up, and with colder weeks ahead
we'll need the cottage to feel cozy.
The adorable Christmas pillow I found at Kohl's - 50% off
too which was really nice!
The perfect cozy throw from Target, not expensive either.
My IKEA amaryllis - they are faux silk ones but so
beautifully made and natural looking I couldn't resist.........
and I didn't have time to grow new ones from bulbs!
Here are my special little flocked vintage red reindeer
guys from SuzAnna's Antiques.
Brought them home Thursday and they have decided to
hang out here near the hearth.
My very first Christmas card to arrive - on the dresser - is
the always special handmade one from my wonderful friend Patti
in Washington state. She must have known I needed red touches this year!
How are you doing with your decorating? Time is now running away from us. This weekend looks very busy as the Christmas tree lots are buzzing, with people and saws. We drove through the Victorian section of our downtown last evening when taking a friend from Atlanta to dinner - it was still a balmy 75F and didn't feel really 'Christmassy', especially as people were dining outside in shorts! Then we saw those lovely old houses with their elegant porches decorated with thousands of lights, and Christmas trees shining from the windows......the season is here!
Today it's raining lightly and due to get very cold tonight - tomorrow perhaps icy conditions early.
Are you hoping for a White Christmas? I am.
