Holiday Home Decor Party Today..

While looking thru my stuff, I found this wonderful little book my son-in-law gave me last year filled with great Christmas graphics..the book has a website:http://www.taschen.com/










Welcome to my little Holiday Home Decor Party for Christmas and Thanks to 'Karla' for the fun idea http://www.karlascottage.typepad.com . I did a few slide shows and one 'special, one' of my friend's' Santa Room', she has a awesome eye for decorating! Her whole house is beautiful and interesting with antiques and art from all her travels..Iam hoping she will get a blog and share her lushish eye candies!


This year I did not take out everything as will be leaving after Christmas to spend time with my daughter's family all of January..so will be packing up everything day after Christmas and I'm too lazy to do it all! But it looks like there's enough to put one in a festive mood! Next year everyone will come to our home.. so I'll be decorating to the max!


Hope you enjoy the slide shows..and leave a comment as will have a FREE GIVEWAY DRAWING on Friday, a fat 'PAPER STOCKING' filled with 'paper goodies' vintage and new...

Your slideshows of your home knocked my socks off. What a visual feast you've created. Layers and layers of wonderment (is that a word?) and JOY! Thank you so much for sharing. You're an inspiration, and you are so kind to share the mazing "FREEBIE" images you have amassed. Only question. How the heck do you dust? I don't do it much myself, mind you, but with so many objects, it must be daunting! Thanks again! - Amy B

Hi :) I came over from Karla's party, and glad I did, you are an amazing talented artist I have never seen your work before.
Too bad you couldn't decorate too much this year, but like you said, there is always next year. Oh and I am just in awe at your friends Santa collection, I have never seen anything like it.
Come visit me at the party if you have a chance :)

What a wonderful slide show!! We are so glad you hopped over and saw one of your creations! A good friend gave that reproduction to Kijsa a few years ago, and she treasures it, both for the friend gift, and it's wonderful charm! We just love your work! Have a blessed day! (and of course you know we would LOVE to be in your drawing!!)
