Happy Halloween


I love Halloween.
I especially like it when the weather is warm enough to have the front door open, greeting the children with candy in one hand and a glass of wine in the other. Chilly as it has been here the door will be closed, none the less, I love Halloween.


Couple shots from my coffee counter at home.




nobody appreciates my sweet mice at home but me.... ?














































I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the end of October!! I can't believe how fast the last two months have gone. I have 8 days to prepare for the Christmas Premiere at the Barn. I was feeling pretty good last week... right on schedule. This week, however, I am behind. At the last minute I decided I needed 3 more faux - prelit Christmas trees from my Favorite vendor.... in my mind I thought they would be at the store in a matter of days.... starting to panic... no trees and a week has passed. Another area I did the tree with lights, decorated the tree and now the lights don't work.... why!!! do these things happen.
Then I start to obsess.
I get stuck on that one area...fixating on the damn lights.
The other half of my brain is screaming "move on"
So, I am moving on... lots to do.
See you at the Barn. ~ L

Gold Collection

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have never done gold for the holidays.

This is my first Gold collection. I love it.love it.
It looks so rich with all my warm off white... and of course the printed page of a vintage book really pops with the rich metal of gold.
_____
It is cold here. 38 degrees and Windy 60 - 70 mph gusts.
Not the best days to be out shopping, but I am getting a lot done at the shop in preparation for the Christmas premiere... 10 days and counting!



Before I brought out the tree I did paper shingles on my awning over the window.

time for change

Change.
Change is good.
When preparing for the Christmas collections, I change everything,
strip each section down to bare bones.
Clean.
A fresh slate.
Each vignette must be new and exciting.
Change is good.



I have to put my little touch here and there


















I didn't have a rug handy, so ....




I was bored with my clock, so ...


















a teaser for my upcoming "gold" collection
I've never in the four years I've had the store done gold for Christmas



I'm excited to show you the gold collection.... maybe Monday



~ enjoy the weekend.
I am finally getting time out of my schedule to get my hair done this Saturday. For all of you with busy schedules, so all of you, you know how wonderful that 2 - 3 hours of pampering at the salon can be. Can't wait.
~ peace. L
