~ Better Late Than Never I Suppose! ~

Happy Sunday Friends!...I finally got around to snapping a few pics around the house and thought I'd share.  Now that April is more than half over, it'll be time before you know it, to put away spring and decorate for summer!  Where does the time go??

The first picture is entering our living/family room:
This picture is also in the living/family room just around the corner:

A close-up of the pie safe:

This year's coffee table bowl. The flowers are all available in my shoppe! I'm in love with the new Potted White Lavender!! The pinkeeps and hooked mat were made by Stephanie of Olde Colony Primitives.

The boot bench sits to the right of the fireplace.  The Hog Scraper Candlestick and Green Buttercreme Tapers are available in my shoppe, they smell divine!! 

This is the olde wash stand that sits under the window left of the fireplace.  The flowers and chamberstick are available in my shoppe. The bunny was made by Lori of Homespun Prims. 
An olde ladderback chair that sits to the right of the entertainment center is where I display some of my favorite handmade dolls.  The gorgeous lady rabbit was a new addition last year, she was made by Norma Schneeman.
Another spring display atop a little doughbox table that the hubs made several years ago.  Everything is available in my shoppe except the plate, it sold out!
This is a table in the foyer.  The Charleston Lamp is an item offered in my shoppe. The handmades are from Pam, Jenn, Barbara, Jackie, and Lori.  
The black stepback cupboard that the hubs made several years ago is a favorite piece of furniture. Hanging on the left door is the English Lavender Bouquet that's available in my shoppe and the little red flowers in the box are the Wispy Wildflower Bush also available!

 This display is on another stepback cupboard that sits in the breakfast nook.  Everything shown is available in my shoppe! 
 On the foyer wall hangs this sifter in which I always display a seasonal pinkeep, this one was made by me from a Primitive Betty Freebie pattern. I hope you enjoyed my spring tour!

~ Merry Christmas! ~

It's time to share some festive decorating!  I have been as busy as all get out with orders from my shoppe and for that I am extremely grateful, it's just very difficult to get anything else done, but I did manage to finish my decorating and got nearly all of the presents wrapped, yay me! LOL

Without further ado, here's an abbreviated version of my Christmas 2014 decorating pics...these and several more can be seen on my Picture Trail here: http://www.picturetrail.com/underthewillow

This is in our living/family room:

On the right side of the fireplace hearth sits this little boot bench that hubs made a few years ago...the hooked mat was made by Stephanie of Olde Colony Primitives, the wired holly by Norma Schneeman, the wee red box by Barb Kaufman, and the green Belsnickle Santa can be found in my shoppe!

On the fireplace mantel there's a black Belsnickle Santa that is also available in my shoppe!

Just to the left of the fireplace sits an olde wash stand, it's one of my favorite areas to decorate.  This year I've placed some primitive handmade gingers and candy canes that I've collected over the years.  The pine candle wreaths and striped taper candles are sold in my shoppe!

In the breakfast nook:

In the dining room:

This is the foyer table...the lamp is the 2 Light Charleston Lamp that I sell in my shoppe...this one's mine but I do have them in stock at the moment!

Lastly, the sifter on the foyer wall...pinkeep made by me a couple of years ago and I don't recall the pattern I'm sorry to say but I hope you enjoyed my tour...the rest of my pics are over on Picture Trail: http://www.picturetrail.com/underthewillow ...MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
