Christmas Creating

This week I have been busy creating gifts for Christmas presents. I have been having fun creating keepsakes for certain people that I hope that they will like - I can't post them because they frequent this blog!

I am getting excited for the Christmas season as we might have our first snowfall today - the sky outside looks like that "i'm gonna snow" type color and I'm looking forward to the white stuff. Only because I don't have to drive anywhere today and I can stay in my nice warm and cozy house!

I also can't wait to start decorating for the season - I can hear my boxes calling me downstairs to let them out of their cold dark place. But, I have shown restraint, even though every store that I go into has their decorations up, I will wait until after the last weekend of November. It will be hard, but I will stand strong and do it!

This past week I met my daughter in her town and we went "makeover" shopping. I had her pick out a pair of curtains for her living room and we took the colors and pattern from that and went forth to find the rest of the items for her apartment living room makeover. The color scheme is brown and sage green and terra cotta red. On Sunday morning I will make the drive out to her place and we will makeover her living room. I am excited to see the change (anything would be better than what is in there now!) and I will post before and after pictures of the room. I hope it all comes together as have imagined in my mind.

I will end this post with a cute little picture from my visit to Italy this past summer.....these porta-poddies were at the antique flea market in Arezzo. Aren't they just the cutest?!
And with some pictures of the piano with its accessories......
