Bring on the New Year!

We bought the Antique Mall. Yes, that is what I said! 
The opportunity came a few short weeks ago when Bill and Diane H. decided to retire after 20 years in the business. They will still be an ACM vendor, but I can picture a little traveling in their future.
So, Mr. Ella and I went in with some other buyers, Colorado Nancy, her husband and sister-n-law Karen.
We are are really excited about the new year and what all it will bring!!

Elegant Christmas

 My Romantic Prairie Home is getting all dressed up for Christmas. I am loving how elegant it all looks.
The weather here in North Texas has been fabulous. If you look closely you will see roses on the bushes. We have snow flurries
predicted for next week. 
I will believe it when I see it...but this is Texas!

 I have gone with all of my "greenery" a champagne color.

 My mercury glass ornaments and twigs were Pottery Barn inspired.

 This sweet cement angel is protecting the front porch.

 Come on in for a visit in the parlor...

 The fireplace is all decked out.

 A cozy couple sits by the fire.

We like to pretend we are musical at our house. 
The truth is we love music, but don't ask any of us to entertain you!

I am not one to decorate with the typical Victorian decorations...

Instead of one big tree in the house I chose to have several smaller 
ones throughout. This one is of course a champagne color!

McKinney Home Tour 2012

The McKinney Home Tour was last weekend and the homes were exceptional. 
They were all beautifully decorated for the  Christmas Season. 
I will let the photos speak for themselves...

I will leave you with these sweet little birds.
( Valerie at Glimpse of My World has more photos.)
