A Prelude to Christmas

One thing that always puts me in the mood to decorate for Christmas is visiting some of the lovely, smaller boutiques and shoppes. This is one I try to get to at least twice a year, Spring and Christmas. Wendy was gracious to allow me to take a few photographs so that you can enjoy some of the beautiful decorations. This shoppe is as beautiful inside as it is out.
I have found that so many shoppes are not allowing photographs to be taken.
I wonder why that is?

Here is the link to their website.

This quote on a pillow is perfect for those of us who love all things vintage and chippy.

This is the treasure that I bought to bring home with me. Something that reminds me of
'The Reason for the Season'

White Wednesday - My Dream File

I have a special file on my laptop named my "Dream" file. In it I keep links of things I would love to have, mostly things for my home. In my head, I realize we can't have everything we see. It just isn't practical. But, the heart is a place meant for dreaming. So, I file away some beautiful things in my Dream file, where I can visit them anytime I feel like some eye candy. It is also very easy on the PayPal account.
These darling turkey placecard holders are from Cindy's online shop Cute Pink Stuff
They are filed away in my Dream file. There are many more lovely things in Cindy's shop as well as on her blog by the same name. I'm sure she would love a visit and a comment or two.
Thank you dear Cindy for allowing me to use your photos on my blog.

To My Dear Blogging Friends

Meet my Dad.
This is him in the hospital recuperating from a fractured hip. He was feeling chilly so we covered him up in a heated sheet. My sister took this photo of him goofing around and I told him I would put it on my blog. I am now making good on my threat. lol
Many of my blogging buddies have been concerned about why my posts are so sporadic. Dad has come to live with us in Lady Pamela's Cottage. So now my days are pretty full. We are both enjoying the extra time spent together, and Dad is getting stronger every day.
Thank you for your prayers and concerns. I will post as time permits. Hugs to you all.

White Wednesday - With Apologies

First - I apologize for posting so late on Wednesday. Second - I am sorry for the poor photos.
You are all such sweet blogging friends, I know without a doubt that you will forgive me.
BUT - I absolutely could not wait to show you all my new bridge lamp. The darling young lady at Creekside (in Abbotsford) was able to find not only one, but two for me to choose from.
I was soooooo excited, that I could not eat (totally not normal for me!)
Thinking back, I should have brought my camera to show you their store. Now I have a really great excuse to go back there.

White Wednesday - Pumpkin Tea Party

I came across this lovely online boutique called Scarlett Rose. I have never seen a tea set that is both all white and fall at the same time. I think it is so precious. I emailed June and got her permission to post her photos. I cannot decide which pieces to purchase. (Of course, all of them. But really, which one?)
The lovely, breathtaking teapot?

The cute, unassuming cream and sugar?

Or the teacup with the adorable leaf for a saucer?
Which one would you choose?
