Sharing Some Blues

Hello, Today I'm joining Sally for "Blue Monday"
A Blue vignette in my entry

This Little Red Riding Hood was my Mom's.  It was my grandmother's before her, so it's really old.

Another BLUE vignette in the BR

And finally, I saw this darling old cabinet that somebody had painted and stenciled.
and Note, it was 25% off.  I didn't have a place for it. :(

Decorating from Yesteryear

Hello, Bloggy friends.  I have "inherited" an old scrap book from the l920's, and this girl was obviously into decorating (like some of us)

Thing is.....................I still like what she liked back in the l920's :) Blue and Yellow theme BR.

A girl after my own heart. :)

Look at that Secretary desk.  I have always wanted one just like that.

Seems like she liked "sunny" rooms, too.

This LR is my least favorite pic. Not too sure about the colors jiving.

I wish this one was in color.

My Bedroom with Pink Touches

Hi, Beverly, and Congrats on the Pink Saturday anniversary. Please join her for more pretty pinks at How Sweet the Sound.

Tonight, I'm showing my master bedroom which has touches of pink.  I love the color of the walls.
It is so soothing and nice to wake up to in the morning.

The bed and the picture over the bed came from my friend's Bed and Breakfast. Love them both.

Oh, she also gave me this chair from the B&B, too. The curtain fabric is by Laura Ashley.
I found it for a steal at "Hudson's Treasure Hunt".

Thanks for stopping by tonight. I really appreciate it.

Cute Porch

Hello! I'm back.  This lady always has her porch fixed up so cute and neat. She has just recently redone it with fresh flowers and touches of yellow on the swing and chairs.

Christmas House Tour

My computer was down so, I'm having to jam all my Christmas posts into one Giant one. I'm almost ready for the big Day!

 Presents are wrapped.

 Tree is decorated

 Mantle is finished

Stockings hung........

Living Room is finished......

I put lights on the windows of the sunroom this year.  Gives it a wonderful glow at night.

I set the little table in there using red and my blue willow.

Napkins were a wonderful "thrifty" find. So nicely starched and fresh!

This year, I added some little ornaments on the head board of the "red" bedroom.

These pillow cases were a wonderful thrifty find last year.

Here's the dining room tablescape this year.

It was inspired by this cute galvanized Yuletide bucket that my wonderful friend  gave me this year for Christmas. She has excellent taste, and knows what I love. :)

It worked so perfectly with the "thrifty" find table runner and placemats  I had already planned to use.  I got all 5 pieces for $4!
I also decided to get in on the "plaid" Christmas theme, which I love. I found these plates yesterday at Cracker Barrel for half off.

The cute Christmas tin is another gift from my friend.

Wish I knew how to do the fancy chalkboard stuff. :)

My FAVORITE gift my friend gave me. I had given her this Hallmark ornament in l989 when it first came out.
(We both love Christmas mice)

She found it on line for me this year. Love it!

This is a gift I bought for me. Love this F&F little platter!

Happy Christmas to All my Bloggy Friends!

I'm joining "The Scoop" this week, and "Met Monday" at Between Naps on the Porch,
and "Tweak It Tuesday" at Cozy Little House.

Christmas Dreaming

 Hello, girls! I've finished my Christmas shopping, and I even got all the presents wrapped.
Like my my red shoes, hairdo and fur?

 Oh, look at all my Christmas mail and packages. Like my new, green house? It'll do, I guess :)

 I do love the neighborhood, and this beautiful snow really gets you in the Christmas spirit.

 OKAY! I'm only DREAMING, but I DO have my Christmas tree up already. That's really early for me.
Thanks for stopping by today.
