The house is not ready to be moved into yet, but I was feeling the Christmas spirit and did a little decorating! As you may recall, there was a HUGE old mirror that was glued and screwed into the wall. My hubby and sweet dad took it down for me, then I got to work.
There were some areas that needed to be repaired before the Mythic paint could go up. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised. The glue had been put on so long ago, it really had not hold and did not greatly harm the wall. I then put up a good coat of primer then paint. While the paint was drying I made a couple of stockings from some scraps. I really love the rusticy look to these little guys. I put a little red bell on D's and a tiny glittery pinecone on mine! I was so pleased with how this tured out-Just the look I was going for!
I just love the way the tree lights show up in the mirror on the mantle! I promised myself I would not buy ANY christmas decor this year and I think I did really well-I used all of our old stuff that had been stored away!
My hot hubby and I celebrated 6 years this weekend. We had a great Winter wedding and tall beautiful trees decorated in all white and silver at the home of the recption. Some of my favs are a tad too heavy for our tree, so I placed them in a little hammered metal bucket next to the fireplace. Love this!
We are not living in the new/old house yet, but I have been taking a mug of hot cocoa over and studying for finals this week. Umm...yummy! The progress may slow down a bit until we both get this semester behind us!
I am married to the love of my life, David. We celebrated 7 years this Decemeber. College was interupted as he swept me away to his world of professional baseball. Several years later, I am back in school and find it refreshing cracking open college text books again.
