Shoppers at the mall in the city where I live got more than they bargained for last Sunday — a philharmonic flash mob! Members of the Philharmonic Choir surprised shoppers with a sudden performance of the famous oratorio from Handel’s “Messiah.” I just love how all the of mall’s typical Christmas buzz just stops in it’s tracks for the 5 minute breath-taking performance.… Keep on reading —>
It seems like I’ve been talking on and on around here lately about my Dr. Seuss Christmas tree decorations…so much so, that I think it deserves to be capitalized: so, from here on in, it shall be The Dr. Seuss Tree. Well, The Dr. Seuss Tree is finally finished, and I couldn’t be happier with it.
I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I was originally inspired last year by Donna’s Whoville tree over at Funky Junk. … Keep on reading —>Pin It
I showed you our red and turquoise Christmas tree in my Christmas house tour the other day. (To take that tour, here’s the link: Our Holiday Open House)
But since I’m joining in on a few Christmas tree parties in Blogland today, I thought I’d give you a closer look!
This year’s Christmas tree is really different than what I normally do. … Keep on reading —>
I included a picture of this year’s Christmas wreath in yesterday’s big honkin’ house tour post.
But, most of us like things a bit more bite-sized, so I thought I’d talk a little about it here.
This year’s wreath is really an example of using what you have on hand. My favorite part of seasonal decorating is mixing up all the things I own in completely different ways.… Keep on reading —>
Welcome to my 2011 holiday house tour, featured on Hooked on Houses’, “20 Very Merry Room Tours Decked Out for Christmas“!
So…is your home all ready for Christmas yet?
I wish I could say mine was, but it’s still a work-in-progress. My trip to New York set me back a little time-wise, and now I’m playing catch up. Some rooms are complete, others are half-done, and still others are holding all the boxes and bags filled with the random things which haven’t found a spot yet (or ever).… Keep on reading —>Pin It
My post title makes me sound so fancy, doesn’t it?!? I should mention Betsey Johnson and The Plaza every day!
Well, unfortunately, I’m not hanging out with Betsey or living at The Plaza; but I did get a chance to see her signature Eloise Tree last weekend in The Lobby of the famed hotel.
And, of all the spectacular things we saw on our trip to NYC, I think it was one of my favorites.… Keep on reading —>
NYC at Christmas; there’s nothing quite like it!
I’ve been to New York City a couple of times, and once before at this time of year, but this time was a little more special. That’s because I shared the experience with my 7 year-old daughter and 10-year old niece, along with my sister and some other girlfriends and their girlies. This time, we traded our Cosmos for Shirley Temples, lol.… Keep on reading —>
I’m signing off for a few days for a little trip to somewhere called, oh, NYC…
with my little starlet and some other moms and daughters for some pre-Christmas fun like American Girl, The Rockettes, Broadway…and of course, some shopping!
So excited! See you in a few days!
One question I get asked a lot this time of year is how I decorated my Christmas mantel. When I tell them that it’s actually really easy, it seems they don’t always believe me! But, truly, it’s not really all that hard to create a traditional look with layers of full greenery and ribbon, if you follow a few tricks.… Keep on reading —>Pin It
