"From home to home,
And heart to heart,
From one place to another,
The warmth and joy of Christmas
Brings us closer to each other."
We have almost reached the end of our Christmas story for this year.
Before we close the book, I will show you a project that we've been working on for awhile. It's far from finished yet. There is more painting to do and more decorating, but I thought you wouldn't mind sharing some of the work in progress.
This is our guest bedroom, as it stands now, with a little bit of Christmas cheer.
The wallpaper will remain the same. We have completed the painting of the trim. The linens are new, purchased at Target. I think they will be better suited for spring and summer though, so I have another spread and quilt that will take up residence in the cold months to come. The pillows are from Ross and some thrift sales.
I plan to paint the dressers. We have had them for many years and I think a fresh coat of paint will be just the ticket to brighten up the room. A new change for a new year.
I bought a little marble top washstand from my sister to be used as the bedside table and will be picking that up shortly.
Pictures, may or may not, be changed and rehung, and some accessories will be added.
Now to end our Christmas story, we must start at the beginning. The first thing you see when arriving at the Cottage...the front porch.
...and the last thing you see when leaving...
I hope you enjoyed our yuletide cottage...and accept our warmest wishes for a very happy holiday with your families and friends as I leave you with these final thoughts...
"Peace and goodwill in each loving home,
Beauty and magic so surely you own.
Sweet Christmas angels - moments of love,
Part of the wonder God sends from above."
