To all who read this silly blog,
I wish you a new year full of joy and
health, fun and love, and may we
have peace in our hearts.
|The dining room is ready for Christmas Dinner.|
I finally got the house decorated in my red and
white theme for this year. Take a look...
|The little chruch is from my childhood.|
|Santas under glass!!|
Wishing you and yours a very
A Happy New Year
|Last week I went to a tiny tea for three.|
My friend Mary Jo (Faded Rosie) had the tea,
with a table beautifully set. Note the
candle clipped on the plate.
We began with some bubbly and a lovely salad.
There were many yummy little dishes to temp us.
All made by Mary Jo.
There is no picture of the scones she made, but
they were the best I have ever had!!
My friend Sue took these pictures. For some
reason I am not prone to remember to bring my
At the end of our tea Mary Jo read a very sweet little
book called "A Cup of Christmas Tea"
It was a great little interlude during all this hustle and bustle!
Thank you Mary Jo
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
I hope you are safe in your travels and can
put up with that crazy relative for this one
day. We all have much to be thankful for so
let's not forget the purpose of the day.
This is the guest part of the room. The white cover
on the bed is just an old shower curtain to protect
the mattress because usually this is covered with my
junk I am getting ready to sell. When company comes
(next weekend) the bed will be made. :>)
This is the real "Nest". My desk with my wonderfully
slip covered red chair. (Thank you Mary Jo, Faded Rosey)
I like to pile things up around me. It makes me feel cozy.
My kitty has her bed in front of the window so she can
see the birdies, and bunnies, etc. Storage items are
placed to make a stairway to her bed because she
has a little trouble jumping that high.
This is what I see when I sit at the desk. This is where I do
paperwork and pricing.
This is area next to the cat's bed. Just some things
that I like to have around, or have a plan for later.
Even the back of the desk has things piled up. It never
seems to end. The desk is an old oak teachers desk so I
covered it with fabric.
My view out the window. On a sunny day it is very pretty
and I can actually see down to the road. We will plant more
things out there for a nicer look in the spring and summer.
The full other side of the "Nest". You can see the sweet
Munchy in her bed. (she is the black blob). Suitcases
for storage, the long library table was my mothers, the sides
pull out lengthwise to make it larger.
So there is the tour. I had fun putting it all together and
I really am comfortable in my Nest. I call it my Nest because
I don't create, or sew, so it is where I "nest".
Until next time please be safe and stay healthy,

an ironing board with metal legs. Cute felt ornaments,
shoes, watercolor set, cowgirl pillow.
|The Paint Box is from London.|

with lavender. It is heavy and I put it through the
whole room smelled of lavender.
There were more good things I found but I needed to spend the day getting
Christmas items ready to go to my booth. Hope you have a good weekend.
Until next time, keep safe and good health,

|This was tonights sunset from our front porch.|
I am not a fan of fall because it means that winter is just
around the corner with months of rain and gray sky.
So I had to capture something about fall that I do like.
This beautiful sunset fit the bill.

|My "Andy's Nest" is not finished but |
is ready for some views. This is the area
that the guests will use.
|This is my desk where I will do pricing|
and other things to get items ready
to go to Andy's Attic.
|Looking out the window. My desk on the |
right. I have a nice view on a good day.
My chair will be covered in red linen. For
those who don't know, I am a fan of red!
And a view from the door into the room. I still
need to put more things on the walls and
tidy up a few areas. My cat, Munchkin, has
a bed on the long table that sits against the
window. She likes to be with her mom.
(and her mom likes her to be there)
As more developes I will keep you "posted".
Until then, keep safe and smile,
