Back to Decorating!

'
My pictures are now clickable!! My husband finally figured it out! You can't drag the picture like I was doing. From now on my text will be underneath. I'm sure most of you who have blogs already knew this, but I just got it! This will take a little getting used to......

Here are a few more pictures of my friend's house (Bo's momma) that I showed you a few weeks ago. I used bright red and gold ribbon and big ornaments around the door.

The kitchen is really pretty! The baking santa is a Mark Roberts piece.


This is the fun tree in the family room. It has a little bit of everything on it. I tied the ribbon on the branches for something a little bit different.

This is the formal living room. I showed you a similar picture in the earlier post.

Doesn't she have a beautiful home?

Since I know how to make the pics clickable now..... I will post a few more pics of my house soon. Stay tuned.......

Kristens Creations said...

Hey Tootsie, Sorry about my blog.... apparently I have no clue what I'm doing and hubby was gone! He told me what I did, but it's too stupid to tell. LOL! Isn't the doorway pretty! I really need to post a pic of the front of the whole house. It's gorgeous!

Kristens Creations said...

Oops.... I'm really going crazy, I thought I was on Tootsie's blog....it's time for bed!

Paige said...

Oh that door is fantastic. Everything is. You are so talented.

Diane said...

Yay!!! I can click on your pictures so I can drool more on the keyboard all over your beautiful decorating! Seriously, it really is gorgeous.

Question please... Do the decorations belong to the client or do you bring them with you for each house? I was just curious. I loved the santa & the ornament tree in the kitchen. ♥

Kristen,
I'm blown away by that front door, well - all of it, really! It's so beautiful! Congratulations on figuring out the photos, but I have a question ... what kind of camera are you using to get such great photos of this stuff!? My Christmas stuff photos aren't coming out NEARLY as nice.

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen, ~WOW~ Her home is just so incredible! I love the front door and the fireplace is stunning.
You did a great decorating all of it.
I wanted to let you know I received the ornaments yesterday. Thank you very much for mailing them so quickly. They are even prettier than I realized now that I can see the whole thing. I mailed you a check for the total of each plus the shipping price that was on the box.
Thanks again, ~Melissa :)

Kristen, well I still don't know how to make my photos enlargeable (sp?) and other things as well. I am so busy and really need to devote an entire week to jazz up my blog and learn all the tricks! The doorway in your post is awesome!
