Gifts Of The Season


I thought It would be fun to share some of the gifts I received during this Merry Christmas Season. Not only do I get to celebrate the birthday of our Savior, I also celebrate my own birthday! Here are a few of the special gifts I received. Italian lace and a handmade charm from my sweet sister-n-law Rita, a lovely lady porcelain duster from my dear friend Lori, and a few treasures I found during my holiday travels, vintage chocolate boxes, an old silver champagne holder and a wonderful antique french chair and ottoman which I had re-upholstered . I can't wait until each item finds it's special place in my home.

  6. Dearest Christie,

    Happy belated birthday also!
    It is always a shared day but for that a very festive one!
    Have a peaceful year's ending and enjoy all your treasures. I love those roses on your fireplace and on your header... Are they Hélène's work? Even the fireplace with a mirror; it is still a DREAM. You have very good taste and your friends also!

    Happy New Year to you!
