We wish you a MERRY CHRISTmas...
























































































I wanted to pop in one last time before Christmas comes and wish you all a VERY Merry CHRISTmas! As usual I did not get everything done I wanted too....every year things come faster and faster and I barely have time to breathe. Just a few last snippets of our humble little Christmas here. We have had a lot of snow...several storms have come and gone. We are suppose to get another tomorrow. I have much cooking/baking to do here. We have a very small family but I am looking forward to ours coming together and celebrating what is important. I hope all is well with you all and that you get safely to and from your travels abroad to family and that joy and peace surrounds you! Thank-you all for your inspiration and lovely homes this Christmas season...I have enjoyed visiting you all! Love, Cherry

Brilliant idea for the old shutter! I have four in the garage I took off a window, but just couldn't throw away ~ surely they'd be good for SOMETHING and now I know what! I'll link up with a pic when I'm finished. Thanks for the inspiration!

Melissa said...

Hello there, Ms. Cherrylicious! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with all of us. I love your beautiful " beigey, tan" walls with the black and white/cream colors. Do you happen to know the paint color?
