I'm dreaming of...

...a white Christmas? Me? No, I'm dreaming of a robins egg blue Christmas. After spending many Christmases in Chicago, I have had my share of white Christmases. As much as I love Chi-town and always will, this cowgirl is certainly glad to be back in the South! Spending our first Christmas in a brand new house has it's challenges. Where do I put this? Where do I put that? So this year, I did put up two trees but kept the smaller pencil tree in the dining room just for me. This is where I can add some of my robins egg blue treasures. I love how the old skates look in this vintage frame with the robins egg blue tinsel banner that says "winter frolic". The robins egg blue glittered Santas have found the perfect spot on the dining room table. Unfortunately I didn't get out all of my beloved Wendy Addison stuff this year but that's OK....there is always next year.

I was so excited that the Restoration Hardware table arrived on time for Thanksgiving, but we weren't so lucky with the chairs. Looks like they will be here the end of January. Once the chairs arrive and the vintage ceiling tins are up on the ceiling, it will have all been worth the wait!

Merry Christmas from our house to yours!!
