My Christmas gifts……


My darling husband gave me these

two pillows from

Restoration Hardware

for Christmas.

A little closer look…..

I added down pillow

inserts so they

would be super soft……

He also gave my this gorgeous Orchid

which has been blooming ever

since! The pot it came in

was decorated for the holidays so I put it

in this one which is from Wisteria.

I have had this candle holder for at least a year….

possibly even longer?!?! I originally purchased it because

I loved the shape…… but not the color.

I always planned on painting it but just never got around to it.

Finally a couple of days ago I decided it was time I

transformed it from the dark grey

color to something lighter.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year….

may all your dreams

come true!!!!!

You are a lucky lady, Des! The pillows are fabulous! Your husband sure knows your taste! I love the orchid, too. I think I have that pot from Wisteria. And finally, love what you did with the pillar candle holder. Be careful, once you pick up that paint brush, it's hard to put it down!! ;-D

Hi Deserae,
I just found you today through Antique Chase, and I really like your style! I'm a new follower.

What a sweet hubby! He knew just what you would like. I have the same pillow cover with the crest on it. Those pillows look great in your room! I love orchids too, but only have fake ones because I'm too afraid I'll kill a live one. Maybe I should just be brave and try one, because I sure do like yours. I like your candle snuffer too. I need to get me a prettier one. Mine is very plain and cheap. Hope you have a wonderful new year!
