~White Wednesday # 76~

I know I'm very early today, but I figured you guys would rather I put up the links early rather than late. I'll be up at Monticello's all day setting up for the Christmas show that starts this Friday, Dec.3rd at 8 am. I took all my big things up on Sunday and things were already looking amazing. It's a must see show and it runs through the Dec. 26th.

I've spent the last couple weeks glittering, glueing, sewing, painting and trying to come up with some great things for my booth. I'll leave you with a few sneak peeks at some things I've been working on that you'll find in my booth. Enjoy! xoxo K.

~White Wednesday # 75~

"What's all that white stuff?" Baby it's cold outside and thanks to Mother Nature I found my inspiration for my post today. After all this is my 75th WW post....can you believe it? I know I've shown my statuary before and I hope you guys don't mind a few repeats because a girl can only have so much white anyway...LOL. I try to mix it up even if it is something I've shown before. I love how statues look with a little bit of snow on them.....it adds something magical. I want to thank everyone for all their continued support of WW and am always encouraged when I hear so many positive responses to it. Enjoy! xoxo K.

I also want to mention a really cool event that Polly over at French Cupboard is hosting. It is called "An Extravagant Affair" and it starts on Black Friday. Hop on over to frenchcupboardholidaymarket.blogspot.com and check it out. Their new Christmas issue of Porch will be available for sale and much more.

~White Wednesday # 74~

Since Winter is on it's way I'm going to share some whites with pinecones today. I love the contrast with this combo. I always get them out before Christmas and usually leave them out until Spring arrives. The first photos are from my booth that I took today while I was up there fluffing and restocking. The last ones with the candle are from my bathroom next to my bathtub. I always light this candle when I take a bath......which lately isn't very often. Who has the time? Maybe if I get a few more projects done this evening I'll be able to soak a while with my new Jeanne d' Arc Living magazine that just arrived. Enjoy! xoxo K.

~Silver & Glitter~

It's been a while since I've played along with Beth over at Gypsy Fish for Silver Sunday and since I'm knee deep in glitter and glue today I thought I'd share a couple things I'm working on. Enjoy! xoxo K.

Take a silver tree.

Add some glittered stars and ornaments with music sheet paper and letters.

Take some old tarnished silver pieces.

Add some bottle brush trees.

Just a peek at some sparkly things I'll have for sale at Monticello's Old fashioned Christmas show.

~A Must See Christmas Sale~

I wanted to share a wonderful Christmas sale that is going on this weekend. My friend Diane from Molly Mo's has a christmas sale in her barn every year. The talented Martha from Vintage Trifles always has handmade Christmas items to add to the mix. These girl's always put together over the top displays and have the best stuff for sale. If you live in the area you don't want to miss this one. It's never too early to get into the holiday spirit. The fun starts Firday evening and also runs all day Saturday. Please see Diane's blog for more info.

I'm linking up with Debra over at Comon Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday. Make sure you stop by and see what everyone has out there to get you inspired.

~White Wednesday # 73~

I hope everyone is enjoying their day. It has been a typical Fall day here with cloudy skies a little bit of wind and a lot of rain! A perfect day to stay indoors and try and get some things done or read a good book. Speaking of good books....I'm going to share a few of my favorite. I love the look of the coverless books with the old binding showing especailly stacked together and mixed in with all your favorite goodies. Enjoy! xoxo K.

How can you go wrong with them added in with old architectural elements?

I wanted to thank all of you who left such positive comments about my booth. I'm really enjoying it and will be heading up tomorrow to fluff and take up a few more things I found at the flea market on Sunday.

~What Do You Think?~

Okay, here it is all done....at least for now. The idea of this game is to sell lots of this stuff so you can take up more and re-create, right. I hope so because the creating is my favorite part. I like how it turned out in person better . Sometimes it's hard to get good photos, but overall I'm happy with it. Now time to get busy working on all the goodies I'll be taking to the Old Fashioned Christmas show that starts Dec. 3rd.

I'm linking up with Debra over at Common Ground for her Vintage Inspiration Friday. Her theme today is "Finding your Style". I think I've found mine.....for now anyway. Enjoy! xoxo K.
