Glitter and Gifts


























































































































I thought I would share my foyer tonight. It is now complete! I got my wonderful swap from Lynn over at http://lifeatcedarhill.blogspot.com/ . She and I were in the Very Vintage Christmas Swap at http://foxglovesfabricandfolly.blogspot.com/. I was having problems with this area because I wanted something to balance out my lamp on one side. Well when I opened my package from Lynn I screamed with delight. She had gotten me the perfect vintage looking Santa...EVER. I love him...sniff, sniff. Here he is proudly displayed along with the little acorn ornament she sent...(with a wondeful history of the acorn). He balances out this area perfectly. It is like she KNEW. Rofl. I snapped pics of the other beautiful things she sent. An adorable cherry apron (she did not know that I collect them...she is psychic people) , a little cupcake votive holder with my favorite Yankee scent Creme brulee. an adorable Santa magnet, a vintage Santa card and postcard, and that adorable bird trim (can't wait to use it on a project), a romance book, some candy that is GONE..rofl, and the sweetest journal...so shabby! I loved everything! Thank-you soooo very much Lynn! I was spoiled. I hope she loves her things!
Also today was the start of Tracy's Holiday Tour http://acottageindustry.typepad.com/a_cottage_industry/ which I joined! If you don't know about it....you better run right over.....sooo many beautiful homes decorated to the hilt for Christmas. I wanted to mention ....did you notice those sweet vintagey necklaces hanging from my forks? Those were done by http://glitterandbliss.blogspot.com/ they are so precious that I had to display them! Well I will leave you all for now....Cherry

My how wonderful everything is. I need you at my house. I hope to have most things out today, and I would love a trip to HL along the way. Thanks for asking about Stella. She is still on the mend, not completely back to normal. I pray for normal everyday, won't go into details. She has just started eating on her own again, hooray! How about you, how are things with your husband's job etc? Praying God's best for you. Jackie

All of your things are soooo cute! How do you cover your stars with paper? I have some tin stars that I would like to put some decorative paper on but when I tried it it looked terrible. Do you put on one whole piece of paper or do you cut it and piece it together? I would love a tutorial! :) Thanks!

I LOVE all your decorations! You are a wonder woman! You have time to decorate and make all that cute stuff. Are you getting any sleep?!?!
The tussie mussie idea is so cute! I may have to buy some red trees to use this idea for Valentine's.

And just to let you know, you are giving me a serious case of scale envy! I really NEEEEEEEED an old kitchen scale! Maybe I could ask Santa.

Miss(es) Canadian Pie said...

Cherry, if you ever had the chance to do a home tour in your town - you should do it. I bet you would have so many ooh's and aww's over your decor and designs. Everything is post is so incredibly wonderful and there is just so much to look at. Sometimes I just come back to your blog to relook at the photos. So so wonderful.

Cherries and cupcakes are my two "theme" addictions :) I got the table cloth and napkins at Retro-Redheads , they have the best cherry stuff with a Vintage feel! here's the website address, just so you know, its the kind of site where you have to check in often as they add so much and then sell out etc, but Im sure they have more of that set!
