a few more pictures...

I can't believe we're closing in on Christmas day. My goal is to have all my presents purchased... (just a few more to pick up tomorrow), and wrapped...(I'm waiting on my fairy elf to show up), by Sunday so that next week I can bake to my hearts content. How bout you?

I wanted to show you just a few more pictures of my SIL's before I move on to another Christmas wonderland...

more pink and green in the powder room...

some vintage red in her entryway and above her china hutch...

Most of what you've seen has taken years to accumulate. I call her the queen of repurposing because she is one of those people who can enter a thrift store or flea market and just smell a good bargain or can look at something really ugly and know instinctively what she can turn it in to. If I didn't love her so much I might really resent her for that.
I wish there was a way that my pictures and words could convey her heart for the Christmas season. The way her ornaments and baubles can stir her memory of Christmas' past and stories that always bring a tear to my eye...a favorite cookie recipe that is a more special gift than anything money can buy...I have been truly blessed in the SIL department...she is my sister in law by sister in love through friendship...and my sister in Christ by HIS blood.
Tomorrow I am going out to visit another SIL who holds just as special a place in my heart and if I can twist her arm...I will be bringing back some pictures of her warm and cozy home.
I tell ya all this love is almost more than one girl can take.

I think your SIL and I are kindred spirits! Wow, what a beautiful set up.

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog post. I cannot even tell you how much it meant to me.

Have a very Merry Christmas!
