All through the house ~

Like you, I’m decking our halls for the holidays.

One tree is up, though still naked , as I post this…

but it’s a beauty! It went in  the stand and up  into the

well, of our floating staircase, without incident!

And it is still  standing! Sweet!

 Our flocked tree meanwhile, arrives tomorrow!

So for now…

here is a quick peek at our home, as it looked for the

Assistance League of the Eastside

Celebrations Holiday Home Tour...2010.

(It will be fun to compare the then & now, as much has changed in two years!)

The entry table,

The  arrangement


over the wine table,

A sweet,  tabletop kid tree

in a vintage  French

rolling basket.

The lovely & simple, magnolia wreaths

in our dining room,

 Italian handblown

glass ornaments

and herb swags,

and  an earthy 

centerpiece for the

main table,

The celebrations Home Tour 2012 is just 

around the corner. Good luck, thank you

& happy decorating…to all of the  homeowners!

 Here is the ticket information.

All of our  wreaths arrive this

weekend!  Much to do!
