Holiday Open House Pics

Since I am not a black friday/Thanksgiving weekend shopper, I stay home and open my house to my local customers for holiday shopping. My entry, dining room and living room are filled with pretty things to buy. I have Christmas music playing, a candle burning, and coffee and goodies. I love this weekend because I get to play store. This time, my kids were all involved in the process, unpacking boxes, pricing and displaying. We all had fun working together and they were thrilled to receive some $$ for their hard work. Even my youngest helped hang the ornaments on the tree. Here are some pics of my displays and some new products too!

A table top tree in the dining room with burgandy hydrangeas and white feather birds.

A corner of the living room. The aqua oval frames are new and will be listed this week.

Another corner of the living room.

A pink and silver display.

Love this color combo of bronze, cream and aqua.

Some sweet little bird's nest ornaments I made this weekend.

I would also love to tell you about a new and exciting online Holiday Catalog created by

Make Mine Pink.
