The shop is beginning to take on a cheery holiday look. This is a picture of my shop mantle. You may not know what the brown spindle twin pieces are. Do you? The two pieces combined create the cutest little children's bed. I found the darling walnut bed at recent antique show that Julie and I attended. I'll show it to you when it's set up, darling! I need to make a mattress for it. It's pretty long. Probably long enough for a small adult to comfortably lay in. I fell in love with it and had no idea that I was going to use it for merchandising at the shop until yesterday. I kind of like the idea of a bed not set up, with stockings, cedar clippings and hanging pine cones. What do you think? No cost decorating pretty much. I picked up the bed at a fantastic price.
I've also been into finding vintage suit cases. A certain vintage kind though. Ones that are extremely old, probably 1920, 30 era. They're kind of cool. Usually made with wicker, wood, muted colors, unique handles, etc. A bit pricey compared to suitcases above that date and time, but worth the extra dollar if you're collecting.
I dug into the storage and pulled out the faded cream colored Christmas tree. I thought it would be nice to have a little lit tree in the window at the shop. I strung white lights and placed my favorite winter bird on top.
I decorated the window bench in vintage wicker and white. Love the wood mixed in to create a multi texture look. Rose-hips, Seeded Eucalyptus and cotton here and there. My latest color combination, tan and gray. How do I love thee, let me count the ways!
Chocolate wrapped in pretty foil paper awaits my quests during this special time of year. It's a glorious time, I believe. Special moments will help to create sweet holiday memories. Caring and Sharing oppurtunities appear each and every day.
New aromatic candle line at the shop. Putting together some holiday packages.
Enjoy caring and sharing holidays.
