Holiday Windows—such as they are . . .

Okay, I’ll be the first one to admit it . . . these windows did not receive my best efforts, but they still make me smile.
The hops garland is my favorite element—no matter when or where I use it!  The plate rack was constructed by my friend—the design was copied from a German antique I brought home 9 years ago.  The rest of the design came together based on those two elements.
The far end of the window shows an outdoor scene.  the swing is constant and I love it as my focal point.
One of my favorite new decorative accents is this book page garland.  (I think we are offering a workshop to learn how to make on in January.  Check the Artful origins facebook page for new workshops.)
I was inspired to offer the Johnson Brothers “friendly village” by the plate rack—the colors of the annie sloan Chalk Paint™ I used—country grey, old violet and old white—almost asked to display Friendly Village.
A Christmas tree offering a nice mix of ornaments and a cowboy hat topper.
One of best sellers . . . this iron double lantern will see you from Christmas, through New Years and so on.  Decorate it for the season and make a quick and easy impact.
Several items to love here . . . the french wire basket, the wine glasses and a flower pot turned wine cooler.
A holiday cowgirl.

“Merry Christmas”—vintage style!  (Only $185 for the set!)
A new pattern of our quilt, Rustica.
love the pattern on this tablecloth—it’s actually about 72” long.  I decided to feature our brie baker, and our hot chocolate packets.038039046
Note the tobacco basket—still love ‘em!
Thanks for your indulgence!
