What? Only 17 days until Christmas. I guess I'd better get in gear and get some decorating done before it's time to put it all away for another year.
I learn so much from reading your blogs. Tammy at A Primitive Place inspired me to decorate my laundry room.
The crazy wool mat is a recent purchase from artisan extraordinaire, Shirley Weymeyer. I want to be as talented as Shirley when I grow up!
Another place I seem to spend a lot of time, especially at this time of year, is at the kitchen sink so I wanted a little Christmas cheer there as well. The chalkware Santa was found at Brown's Emporium in Independence, MO last year and the label indicated it was created by a local artist.
I'm still tweaking my display on this chest in my dining room (dove by Chris Farr) but had to share this grouping that includes my favorite little urn. Here's what the urn originally looked like.
I really liked the shape but the color-not so much! But with a little rusting solution from Michaels, it now has the kind of aged look I envisioned.
