It has been way to long since I have done a giveaway! In the spirit of Christmas I will be sending this adorable Joyeux Noel sign to one lucky winner. Wouldn't it make a perfect additon to your holiday decorations? Just leave me a comment that simple! The giveaway will close on December 24th. Good Luck and Happy Holidays!
In between finishing up some orders, decorating and shopping for Christmas I painted two tables. The dressing table below needed some funk so zebra it was! How cute would this be in a girls bedroom with lots of pink! This end table got a fresh coat of black paint and some great glass handles. I am so behind in my posts this one has already sold! Are you all ready for Christmas? I am NOT just started shopping yesterday. I do this every year you would think I would have learned by now.
Well Saturday was absolutely beautiful here! The weather was perfect, people were out and about and extremely friendly! Sales were great for the 5 hours we were at the Indoor Market. We also got some media coverage for The Chicks Along the Canal which we shared on the Chicks Facebook page. (Feel free to "LIKE" us) Really only had 2 complaints. It was very dark inside. I think we ended up with the darkest corner in the place. You can see in the picture below. We borrowed a portable flashlight so we could spotlight our goods if needed. It was also very cold. It actually felt colder inside then it was outside. Does that make any sense?
I met some really great people and it really was a wonderful time! I also found out there is a local Roller Derby team, I never knew that! More on that later though.
This weekend there are big festivities going on. I will be participating in an indoor farmers market. There will be farmers, artists and crafters. You can read about all the other activities HERE. Here is one of the signs I made for the market. I will share a few other things over the next few days. I am not going crazy and making a bunch of things. I just don't need the stress, not over something that is 5 hours. If your around stop by, would love to see you!
Have you visited her before? Her family, home and blog are all beautiful. She decorated her chandeliers so beautiful for Christmas. She inspired me to give it a try. I didn't buy anything just used what I had. Some greenery, red berries, dried hydrangea. It looks better in person, hard to capture on a cell phone picture (sure hopes Santa will bring me a camera, hint hint)
She also has an amazing sign hanging in her living room. You know I am a sucker for beautiful signs. I recreated it with some wood and a decorative piece off of an old dresser. I love how it looks, this is the view from my living room into the dining room.
I had the opportunity to decorate the elevator space at The Shops at 25 West. Apparently I thought I have lots of extra time, LOL. I wanted to do something a bit different not necessarily all red and green. I used old dollies as snowflakes attaching them to the wall, I will be adding more hanging down from the ceiling this weekend. The starch didn't keep them as stiff as I would have liked. Someone suggested sugar water, anyone ever used this? What consistency?
I also had Chris build me some "Christmas Trees" out of poplar trees. I think they are adorable and really not difficult. We (Chris) used some branches from a fallen tree, cutting them 2 inches smaller for each branch, drilled holes in them and stacked them on a dowel rod. I love how they are rustic and terribly simple.
Of course I had to have a window in there and I made one of those awesome book page wreaths everyone has created to go on top of it. I really like how it turned out, of course it looks much better in person! Stop by and see it. The Shops are open until 8PM this Friday, December 3rd and our Holiday Open House is Saturday!
