Share Your Style Party #41

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Share Your Style!  I hope this week hasn't been too busy for you getting ready for Thanksgiving and all.  I am looking forward to a big meal tomorrow and spending time with my family.  Since I'm not hosting this year, I'm just making a couple of dishes to take to my sister's house.  I must say my kitchen smelled good today while I was baking!  I hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing whatever you have to share with us this week.  Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane is your host.

Gold and White Accents

Hello everyone!

Since brass went out of style many years ago, I've made a conscious effort to replace it in my home.  However, as it is coming back in style, I've noticed that metallic gold accents in the home are also following it.  I'm still not back on the brass bandwagon, but I do like some touches of gold and white in home accessories lately.  

So, I found these cute gold and white pictures and hung them in my hallway.

Toy Horse Makeover

Hello everyone!

I recently used some of my birthday money to purchase a cute pull toy horse from HomeGoods.  I loved it just the way it was at first, but then decided I would like it better in a different color.  Here is what it looked like originally.

Changes in the Kitchen

Hello everyone!

Since I now have a pantry, I moved the bins out of the bookcase that were holding food items.  Now, I'm left with decorating space for some of my favorite white serving pieces.

An Early Christmas Present and Gifted Artwork

Hello everyone!

This post should probably be titled "How Many Times a Family Room can be Made Over".  Ha!  I keep making changes and it's getting hard for even me to keep up!  However, this time I made a BIG change and it will probably not get changed up for a long time now.  The reason it probably won't be changed up as often is because of a new piece of furniture I got as an early Christmas present from my husband.  I have been wanting a new sofa for a long time.  I wanted one with a custom slipcover so it would be easier to live with and one that was comfortable and well made.  So, I went to Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and found one.  Let's take a peek, shall we?

Share Your Style Party #39

Hello everyone!

How is your week going so far?  Mine has been better than usual.  I will share more about that in my next post.  But, one of the reasons I have a big smile on my face is because of the change in weather here.  It has been so ugly, rainy, and windy  for the last week and a half.  But we finally saw the sun come out yesterday and today.  It has been the most wonderful feeling.  I love sunshine!  I don't think I could live in a climate that gets constant rain and clouds.  So, with my new good mood, I want to welcome you to another edition of Share Your Style!  I can't wait to see what you have to share this week.  Ron from Uptown Acorn is your host.

Christmas Decor at White Interiors

Hello everyone!

My sister and I got together for my birthday recently and we went to a store called White Interiors.  It's located in Dawsonville, GA.  It was my first time going there, but she had been before.  I loved it the moment we walked in.  It was getting set up for their Christmas open house so I thought I would share some pics with you today.

My Fun Finds from the Country Living Fair

Hello everyone!

I can finally share what I bought from the Country Living Fair recently.

  I always stop at the French Laundry booth when I first get there.  They are known for beautiful bedding, table linens, and pillows.  They never disappoint with their good prices and high quality.  It's such a treat to get to choose something from their booth.  Normally, their linens sell for much more at stores, but they offer special pricing at the fair.  This is the third year in a row that I've bought pillows from them. This year, they offered pillow covers as well.  They cost even less so I just bought the covers this year instead.  I have plenty of inserts at home!

Here is the first pillow.

As always, I go for the French style pillow covers.  This one is cream and grey.  Then I bought 2 matching pillow covers that were cream and blue.

Country Living Fair Part 2

Hello everyone!

How was your weekend?  Mine was good.  The weather turned out not as good as I had hoped, but I celebrated my birthday on Saturday and had a fun time with family and friends anyway. 

I thought I would share the second half of my pictures from the Country Living Fair in Stone Mountain, GA.  I enjoyed seeing so many unique and pretty things for sale.

I loved this giant Christmas tree made out of a grain sack.
