shabby house whites...












This is what I've been up to...last week was our Holiday Open House...I do have to admit it was a stuggle to prepare for...I always feel like I'm a season behind anyway and then the way retail moves in christmas so early...now am I 2 seasons behind? But it was my last big push of the year and now I can turn my attention to home...pumpkin pie and fall cleaning...ahhh...back on schedule.

a very cool old house turned antique store where I rent the back porch to sell my many projects

Twinkle lights add so much charm don't they? Your little space is just darling, like a little girl dressed in a ruffly white dress with ribbons in her hair of curls.

Renee,
Everything looks fabulous! I am especially drawn to the frame within a frame. Love the angles.
I saw a dresser in the new Romantic Home that has me planning to put a lot of appliques on the chest on chest in my bedroom. I love the way you have used the appliques on your pieces. Thanks for stopping over for a peak at my place.

I love how the twinkle lights look with the garland and all your whites really stand out withthe brown walls.

Yes, I did bleach some of the trees. I also tried spraypainting the ones that are more plastic and won't bleach. I liked how they turned out.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

If one could linger for awhile and sit on the floor looking about they would surely think they were amongst the Heavens...
So pretty!
