Hello sweet friends!
My house is back to normal after the Christmas Holiday decor which was every where!
I've enjoyed a week where all is clean and now I'm very rested. Although it looks plain and colorless, I still like it, it's as it has grown and there's so much space now all over, specially in the den where the big tree was standing!
Here are some pics of our house clear of the holiday decor.
|I loved this raised blue and white Oriental planter I found in the European Antique shop the other day.|
|I do love blue and white, it's very elegant. and it pics up the blue in the vintage artwork that was my Mil's.|
All the blue also makes it look Wintery as well.
|Vintage English salad bowl.|
|In this end of the Italian style buffet I always keep displayed the Meissen two tier server, so again, in the European Antique shop I just found this reticulated bowl and small box to match, which I envisioned them together and loved it!|
|I'm storing some diet sugar in the small porcelain box.|
When I saw this bowl I immediately fell for it!
|The entrance had the Carolers and lots of C'mas decor.|
As you come in there's the foyer to welcome you to the rest of the house.
|The flooring is black and white marble.|
|The den is the part that it's mostly full with the C'mas tree, mantel, tables and even presents under the tree! |
So back to normal it looks neat and clean and serene, just with my Oriental planter as a 'new added blue and white piece.'
|A close up of the planter which is raised on a removable pedestal to collect the water that may drip from the pot. The plant looks droopy cause it was just planted.|
|The formal living room looks plain and colorless, but I'm glad the red and green situation is over!|
|A view towards the formal dining room and breakfast area.|
Here you have it, a small tour of my house 'back to normal' after the Christmas Holiday decor.
Thank you so much for your sweet and kind visits, you always make my day!
Thanking the gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties too!
