Christmas Already???

Merry Christmas!! Ha Ha! Ok, I know it's not even Halloween yet, but I am working on Christmas items for my Etsy store. I'm not trying to rush the seasons so don't get mad at me...lol. I am actually behind on making Christmas items this year. I was extra busy with fall which was great! Most of my Christmas items have just come in so now I am on a roll! I will be adding a lot of new items to my store over the next several weeks. I have my first house to decorate on November 12 and for about two weeks after that I will be pretty busy decorating houses. I will try to keep my store stocked as much as possible during that time. However, there is only so much I can take on. So, that is why I am going to bust my booty to get a ton of items made over the next few weeks. Also, my stock is limited. There might be items I can duplicate, but some might be one of a kind. A lot of you seem to like the lantern swags so I will be making as many as I can. I just listed the ones below in my Etsy store. I will be making fun and whimsical ones along with traditional and elegant ones. I will also be making Christmas arrangements, tassels, frames, and even tree toppers! Just thought I'd get you thinking about Christmas!
 
Also, I am posting a lot of the items I have for sale on Facebook if you would like to follow me there. I am addicted to Facebook because it is quick and easy to post and comment. Alot of you are following me there, but if you are not I would love for you to join me! Also, I would love for you to follow me on Pinterest. I am not one to keep track of my followers but I looked today and have over 4000! Wow! The ideas are endless on that site...
 


 
 
Have a great Sunday!

Share Your Creations Party # 60



Welcome to Share Your Creations party #60! I can't believe I've been doing this for 60 weeks. That just proves I can stick with something if I put my mind to it.(Although it might not always be on time) You guys keep me motivated! It was a great party last week. There was so much inspiration...
 
On with the features...
Karin at Art Is Beauty is a wonderful artist who paints pictures and furniture. Love this piece...
 

Christy at Shona Skye Creations revamped this $12 Goodwill harp chair from pink and white to this! It turned out beautiful!
 Jennifer at Simply Ciani shared her home decked out for Halloween. She has some wonderful ideas!
 
I love how Suzy at Worthington Court dressed her porch for fall. Isn't this flag the cutest??
 

Oh how I crave chocolate no-bake cookies! I'm sure these Vermont maple syrup no-bakes will be yummy as well. visit The Kitchen Is My Playground for the recipe.
 
I think I've shown you just about all of my fall decor except for my kitchen table. I brought back out Mr. Roo for the fall months. He is quite comfy back on the table taking center stage.
 
 I have had so many people want an arrangement with a rooster like this in the middle. Unfortunately, I have never seen another one like it.  He is a real beauty!
 
The place mats, red dishes, and leaf glasses came from Pier 1 Imports. The napkin rings are from Kohl's. The napkins are from Bed Bath and Beyond and the leaf dishes are from Wal-Mart. This tablescape is all over the place! lol...


For those who have asked about Christmas...I have started making some things and should have them listed in my Etsy store very soon!
 
What did you create?

You are welcome to share anything you have created. An item, a recipe, a room you have decorated, a vignette, a piece of furniture you have painted and the list goes on and on...

Please add a link back to my blog so others can find the party. Thank you!

Part 2 Of My Aunt And Uncle's Beautiful Home

It's time for part 2 of my aunt and uncle's beautiful home! There were some nice comments on the first half. I told my aunt about them and she was thrilled. I had several of you want her paint colors so I thought I would post them on here. The entry way color is Alchemy by Sherwin Williams and the living room and kitchen area is Different Gold by Sherwin Williams. There is just a shade difference in the two colors.
 
 On with part 2...
 
My aunt and uncle added a game room, bedroom, bathroom and sun room onto their house a few years ago. Everything turned out wonderful! Wouldn't this be a fun and beautiful place to entertain? 
 

I love the picture over the mantle and the bookcases beside it are decorated so beautiful.

 LOVE...
 

 What a gorgeous piece of funiture!
How neat are these chairs?
 What a pretty little sink area by the fridge and chairs.
 Beautiful chest and mirror...
 Ahhh...the sun room. Love the chairs with the bird pillows.
 I love everything in this picture...the chair, the little french table, the painted piece of furniture and even the little rabbit on the floor.

 Love this stunning blue cabinet!
 
 I think I could live in this room...if you look outside you can see a glimpse of the outdoor area.
 This is the master bedroom. What a beautiful bed and bedding...

 This is the sitting area off the bedroom...gorgeous!!
 Beautiful master bathroom...
 Very nice office area...

Now for the outdoor space they just added...can you say Wow!! I am going to go back over sometime and get some more shots without all the people...lol. You can still get an idea of what it looks like though. It is huge! They have decided to glass it in in the near future.
 
 Here it is at night. What an awesome place to entertain guests!
 Before it got dark I was able to go around and take some pictures. All of the fabrics out here are outdoor fabrics.

Love the sofa and pillows...



 Look at this chase lounge...love the fabric and cat pillow!
 Very nice outdoor dining table and I love the ceramic vases.
 These were the steaks we ate! They were so tender.
 Looking out to the pool area...
 I know I say love alot...but I LOVE that cute cat lamp!

 Here is another one on the other side of the fireplace. The outdoor fabric on the chair looks so good with the lamp shade.
 Gorgeous chandelier!


 Outdoor grill and cabinets with granite counter tops.
 
 
This is the outdoor bathroom that was added on the side of the outdoor space. It looks better than my two bathrooms combined!
 LOVE that mirror!


 
 This area used to be railroad ties.  They just had the bricks added and put in all new landscaping. 
 
I hope you enjoyed the pictures! Their home is definitely something to see! There is beauty around every corner...
