Merry Merry

I can't believe Christmas is almost here!!!

{our Christmas tree...  my mom has given me an ornament every year of my life
& now I have a treefull!  ...thanks ma!}

.....And I swear I'm not 200 years old.. I've also been given many others & bought some myself over the years ;)

 We finished up the work year with a condo installation today and are now totally ready to veg.   Tomorrow is our last-minute shopping day & I'm also hoping for some downtime reading & cuddling by the tree (if at all possible) before the holiday rush of parties.   I'm off for the night, but: a very merry holiday - whichever it is you're celebrating!!- to you & yours!!!
Big hug.

xoxo, Lauren

You have a beautiful tree. I give my children an ornament a year too. It's a great tradition.

I had a last minute install today too. Just too close for Christmas really, isn't it? Have a great holiday break.

I have so enjoyed your installations this week, especially the ones that include your beautiful fabric. I love that your design pholisophy mixes the beauty of an old piece, some of the home owners own items and some new.

I hope that you had a wonderful and MErry Christmas, and I wish you the best for the new year. And that all of your design and personal dreams come true!


P.S: Thank you for adding me to your local blog roll, you are so sweet to give a boost to my blog.
