My Year In Review

2012 was a year of major projects delayed and devastating loss. Somehow I  managed to get a little decorating done. Lets look back at a few favorites,  In January it was my buffet redo.

A Little Christmas Here and There

Sunday, December 16, 2012

I'm finished decking the halls, well the living room anyway. It's my favorite time of the year. Lets take a little look see shall we?

This year I put up a tabletop tree instead of my usual 7 footer. I like it so much better. Being in a small space it just feels more comfortable.

Angel Wings

Sunday, December 9, 2012

When I laid eyes on these Angel Wings on Dawn's blog I loved them and knew I wanted to try them. Wellll, I ordered the tutorial, check! and then I cut out the pattern, check! everything is going well so far, glued them together,check! cut and tore the strips of muslin, so far I'm crusin and then I started gluing and pinching the fabric to create the ruffles UH Oh, this did not go well for me. I have met my craft nemesis! making ruffles by gluing and pinching... uh no.  When I went from one pinch to the next the fabric would come up and move arrrgh, I just could not find my rhythm making those ruffles. On top of that I kinda glued my fingers together  and then the rows did not line up well.  Needless to say My copycat wings are jacked up! Here are mine,

Christmas Drums

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

I was looking through the pages of Jeanne d' Arc Living's Christmas issue and saw the most beautiful Christmas drums. They had several different versions of them, all equally gorgeous. I knew right away that I wanted to make a few for my tree. Luckily they had a pretty good tutorial for making your own.

Christmas ''Mantle''

Saturday, December 1, 2012

By now we all know I don't really have a mantle. My rehabbed Goodwill buffet is my substitute for a gorgeous fireplace mantle that exist only in my head LOL. At any rate the only thing I knew for sure this Christmas was that I wanted feathers and greenery and candles  and I wanted to keep it as simple as possible. I came up with this vignette,

I bought a fresh garland and added it to some faux greenery that I had to give it a lush look. Then I poked in  silver faux bay leaves and astilbe, along with mercury glass votives, silver balls and icy garland.
