Holiday Touches to the Everyday

I enjoy making my house a home as much as I enjoy painting and penciling.  It is much like creating art to me.  I place vignettes here and there with everyday items thru-out my home, arranging and re-arranging until I am satisfied.  I don’t play by the rules or follow a guideline, but use what I like (or find on Pinterest!).

I like to think my home is ‘Cottage Style with a bit of Vintage’….if I had to place a name to it.  A bit of homemade, a bit of vintage, and a bit of memory makers.

When Christmas is upon us I like to add Holiday touches to the everyday.
