I've been decorating for over a week but I don't think I quite hit the zone yet. You know, when you feel like everything is in the right place and just the way you like it? Yeah, I'm not feeling it just yet. But I think I'm ok with my mantel (technically, mantel substitute, faux mantel, whatever you would like to call it. And yes, I do realize it's a dresser). Here it is:
Forgive the rumple-y slipcover, the cat sleeps all day on that ottoman and I didn't want to get her in a huff.
Here are the skates I got at the flea market a few weeks ago. I added some glittery ribbon for laces. I had intended to use them outside but realized that with no protection, they would get ruined if it rained.
Last week after I finished Big Frenchy, I put away all my paint supplies and cleaned up, vowing to wait until after Christmas to work on the table and chairs.
I just can't leave well enough alone. So while I should be spending my free time tweaking my Christmas decorations and shopping and baking cookies, I am making a mess instead. Have a nice weekend!
