Simple but colorful Christmas Decor...



I know this is from last year (in Lonny)...but I have always loved how Eileen Kathryn  Boyd decorated her home for Christmas...simple but colorful!



Love how she simply hung wreaths in the window....with colorful ribbon...



Christmas decor is on my mind this week:)

Take care,
Caroline

Glossy...

Thinking about adding just a touch of gloss to some of the walls or ceilings at our new home...maybe a little glossy white in the entry hall...

Cassie was so nice to invite me to guest post today on her wonderful blog Primitive & Proper!  

It really motivated me to get the dining room put together a bit as Thanksgiving is approaching...there is always more to do...but at least it is a start!
