Many of you may have wondered what happened to me.... at least those of you who only follow here and are not on my facebook fan page. No I did not drop off the face of the planet ; the end of the world did not come sooner for me, I promise! I simply could not concentrate. This whole last week and a half or so since I last did a post was filled with anxiety, worry, stress, hurry up and wait situations and massive frustration... with it being the holidays I did not wish to write and have that come through. I know, I have in recent posts, but again, I did say "it being the holidays" . So finally, here I sit with a cup of hot vanilla bean tea, my cat snoring on her half of the bed and a bit of down time before the hubby comes home to catch you up. So what is the update you might be asking ? Well, DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!!!
We sign papers to make the house ours tomorrow (12-19-2012) at 10:00 a.m. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yep! We finally will have a house. Now we will not have the keys yet, though we could come Friday, but officially it will be ours once we sign on the so called dotted line. We can all finally sigh a collective breathe of relief! I do plan to write a blog about all that happened from the last post till this one, but again cause of the holidays and wanting to do only a light and fluffy post, I shall wait I think till after Christmas.... and no worries I shall share photos and tell you of my 2013 plans for the blog as well; you know me always switching it up. So now onto the title......
Nesting: Christmas Edition
I have actually been meaning to do this post for a couple of weeks , but as I said my mind was elsewhere. This is actually a post for my Mom who lives in Texas. She loves Christmas and well she also keeps quizzing me on my latest decor and what style I want in my house etc, and this is the easiest way to show her photos. However, I thought you might just enjoy seeing them as well. So here we go....
|It started with a squirrel. I love squirrels and|
the colors and rustic quality inspired my tree.
|Then there is Santa and his elf. I have|
owned him for many years now and
he will always be a part of
my holiday decor.
|I just love our little owl tree topper. Hubby loves that it|
is not over-sized for the tree.
|I adore quail as well, love watching them scurry about , so|
when I saw this wee ornament, I had to have it.
|Bird nests supposedly bring good luck, so I of course|
had to have it as well.
|Part of my new decor theme of Rustic Lux|
is to pair shiny/sparkly with natural materials.
I saw something similar on Pinterest and
just had to copy. Next year I will add more
colors and ornaments to the mix.
|Sometimes it is the small touches...|
A 2.00 ornament from Wal Mart
is perfect for under the lamp.
|I seasonally change the contents in this candle holder,|
for Fall I had Autumn leaves and acorns, now it is
greenery, nuts, and brass jingle bells.
|Our little living room set up. When we move, we will be adding a couch|
for more seating.
|The other side, my answer to costly arm chairs, dining|
room chairs from Cost Plus/World Market.
|Not Christmas, but wanted to share|
with my Mom, my burlap pictures. There
is one more to purchase at Cost Plus/World Market...
hoping after holidays I can go get it . I adore nature
and so want to surround myself with it at all times.
|Yes, butterflies have seemingly become a theme and|
I just loved this saying.
|Our new D.R. table, supposedly|
as seen in Country Living Magazine.
Plans are to buy 4 more parson chairs ,
but for now it is just hubby and myself so no need.
|Lastly, our little bar area. Just love the|
chicken wire basket, in the Fall I filled with
Indian corn and sparkly pumpkins, I am sure
for Summer it will get large sea shells , and right now ,
though not pictured, it holds pine cones.
So there you have it, how I nested for Christmas in our apartment and then some. Hopefully next time I post, I shall have keys in hand to our house and we can start on a new journey together... I hear a pink tool belt is in my future!
