“May today there be peace within…
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love
that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing,
dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.”

'Tis the (early) Season

I never ever thought I would start decorating my booth this early, but I was ready this year to get on with it.
So, last Friday I pulled a bunch of items from my space and replaced them with Christmas glitter and cheer.

I am working feverishly at home to get more and more ready to add before Black Friday.

I had a cash register like this Tom Thumb toy when I was a child.
I guess that should make me feel old !

Of course in Ella Style I have a natural Christmas theme going on the main display using moss covered trees Ella-embellished with tacks,brads and buttons nestled on table leg pieces I found at the Junk Exchange sale in Waco. They just needed a little paint to be perfectly shabby.
(The lighting in my booth always casts a yellowish tint to my photos in this area...)

I thought a music sheet garland was the right touch of whimsey here.

I love how these vintage ornaments fringe this old shade.

It needed a little help, wouldn't you say?

I haven't posted in awhile because I have been busy, busy and busier!
You know that feeling!!
I snapped this photo at the Antique Mall in McKinney. Barbara is one of our very talented dealers who has the decorating touch. I love how she used an old frame as a wreath.
Simple, but elegant.

Here is a peek of what I am working on in the next few days to put in my booth.
Which is why this is a short post, because I need to be in the other room
Ella-embellishing everything I touch!

Enjoy the Season

I was just messing around with Photoshop and came up with a couple of Fallish looking pumpkin pictures. I had decorated three white artificial pumpkins with a little inspiration from other blogs and magazines.
These three are sitting up on top of my kitchen cabinets.

I love rusty urns of any size because they are good to have out all year long.

Pumpkins in the Fall, Glittered Orbs at Christmas, nests in the Spring and birds in the Summer.

Enjoy the Season!
