Merry Thursday

I love the holidays. Everything about them. Being in America for the last 4 years has taught me to love them even more. I have jumped the gun somewhat here. The standard is usually no Christmas decorations until after thanksgiving. But these aren't Christmas lights are they? just white lights woven through branches sprayed white and my antler collection. Doesn't take much to make me happy. Just some white lights from Walgreens. Two boxes for $10.00!!!!!

I have made a few of these birth announcements. They are little paintings (acrylics on canvas) usually 5"x7". They feature a naive portrait of the family in front of their home watching as the stork delivers the new baby.

A really personal gift for a family which can also be prepared during the pregnancy. The color of the blanket can be added at the last minute once we know whether the baby is a boy or girl.

Gold Fever

I went through a silver phase in my last house, but when I moved into this home, there was a lot of gold. I have grown to absolutely love it, especially against a white background, with soft pastel accents. These are a few recent absolutely crucial things I have purchased to add to my golden collection.

Gold and Crystal Curtain Tie Backs from Heritage Trail Antique Mall, Wilmette. Interesting that the tie backs came before the curtains, but I have never seen anything like these before. Yum!

Huge Golden Frame. A birthday gift from the Huntress. Kids all mine.

French Golden Wheat Sconces. Ebay tippoff from the Huntress.

Ebay Vignette

It all started rather innocently when I decided to "stage" my house for sale. I felt like it needed a little sprucing. A little soul. I mentioned this to some girlfriends and to my delight I started to receive the most tantalizing emails of all "The Huntress saw this on ebay and thought of you". Not only am I easily lead, I am also a recovering shopaholic, so ebay has been kind of disastrous for me, but JUST TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT I GOT!!!!!!

Paul Massey Dream Weaver

One of my most favorite things to do is to flick through photographer sites. Tonight I found Paul Massey and savored every single image.
