Hello friends and Merry Christmas! I cannot believe Christmas 2015 is here. Our plans changed yet again and we are in fact home this Christmas but leaving to go away bright and early tomorrow morning. Since we will not be here there will no Seven on Sunday so I am announcing the winner of the jar today, so congratulations goes to…..


Please contact me at to claim your prize!


This was definitely a season of “last minute changes”. I succumbed to it though and just went with it. Even down to last night, Christmas eve. Normally we have a lot of family in so it’s a big and fun night (this year we are celebrating Christmas together a few days late:)

Since we were a small group we were going to go out last night but something about it felt so strange so at 2pm I decided to cook a full out turkey dinner, I even quickly set up the breakfast room to make it look festive in a blue and white way…..and let’s not forget it was 74 degrees yesterday!

As night crept in, I added little votives for a bit of holiday ambiance:)

I am so grateful for your friendship and support…you make what I do so much fun! I cannot believe it’s been four years since this adventure began….I feel like the best is yet to come and am so happy you will be there alongside me to enjoy the ride:)

I? will be checking in every now and then so this is a kind of newsletter:) I included some links to old posts that you? may or may not have seen in my absence, these are some of my absolute favorites just in case you miss me:) I also have the contest scheduled to start this week along with a few other posts.?

The HOLIDAY LOVE contest has been scheduled (fingers crossed) and will begin on Monday, Dec. 27th (round one), followed by round two on Dec. 28th. A showdown round will start on Dec. 29th and a winner to be announced on Dec. 30th!

The container arrived….finally:) I have a small crew working tirelessly on unloading and sorting it and getting orders out in the order they were received. We have many, many? orders to get out the door so that will take a few days. I expect by Dec. 30th for all orders to have shipped. Thank you for your patience!

The chinoiserie tole container is on its way and should be here by Jan. 6th I will be holding a 2 day presale sometime around Jan.3rd as many of you have asked.

This week will be about the contests, then I have another post scheduled to post next week. That will be it until I return. Wishing you a wonderful and relaxing Christmas break, until next time……

How lovely it is for me to be off from school so I can visit my favorite people. The homestead looks magnificent as always, Tina, and Mr. Teddy is like Mr. Carson from Downton Abbey; making sure all things are properly up to scratch, and they are. GORGEOUS!!!!! Happy day! Anita

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Tina!


As always, lovely. I want to be a guest for a sleep-over at your home. I live in Utah, so that might be a little tricky. Whereas you had balmy temperature on Christmas Day…our was winter-white as typical in Utah.

Here’s to a marvelous 2016!
