Adding some Whimsey

December 1st already!!!  I've been laid up with pulled muscles in my back for almost 2 weeks now, and am finally feeling better, so today I started some decking of the halls!!!  Not too much, don't want to hurt myself all over again!!!   And......I bought myself an early birthday gift.....wait till you see this cute side board.....
Kinda Frenchy, kinda country.....I love to mix!!!  My home is small, not much room for new furniture, but this piece caught my eye........wanted it to go next to the staircase and it fit well there, but didn't like the way it looked!!!  So, naturally, everything got moved around, took 2 days.....

I think it is playful, colorful, and adds a touch of whimsey which I like......my home has mostly antiques, but think this piece fits right in!!!


And here is the little angel I got at TJM,  I added missing stars to her bunch.....


Books are some of my favorite things, this is one of my daughter's childhood books........its one of my favorite Christmas story.........as a child, this was one of two movies that were on at the holidays.  The other one was A Christmas Carol, and that old one in black and white always scared the heck out of me!!!

Have to rest now.....that was a lot of work!!!  I am joining whatever parties I can.....have to figure out how to put buttons and links on here.......

Now, here is the neat part, this darling table was bought on line at Home Decorators....got it on sale.....comes in a choice of colors......it has to be assembled......I did it myself, easy peasy, very well made for something out of China, and it is solid wood not fiber board stuff.......I think it is a very good buy and I was surprized at how nice it is......no, I'm not getting paid for that......just thought y'all would like to know!!!

That's a great little table & a great color too!

Amahl & the Night Visitors...oh my goodness, I had forgotten all about that movie. It's been years since I saw it.

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better, Cleo.
