Vingettes in my Home.....







Some vingettes in my home....hope you enjoy....Chandra

Things are always a changin' in this house....








no fear of holes in my walls, moving things from wall to wall, or re-painting a piece of furniture, some pieces have been three different colors, changing from home to home....I do not need to spend money to freshen things up....I am sure my husband is happy things have not changed for the last few months...He is a great guy though because he lets 

me do my thing and just jokes that we should probably change things around because it has already been a month...as a result, my kiddos are un-phased at changes in the house and will tell me if they like them or not:)  Here are just a few examples of how things have changed....

Christmas Break....


Christmas Break is here!!!!!  Joe and I are really looking forward to spending lots of time together as a family!  We are planning on going tubing up at Hoodoo....The Kiddos will love this!  They are finally at good ages where they will last a little longer out in the cold....We are also planning on going to the Zoo...we have been there a lot this year b/c of the zoo pass we purchased and every time we have a blast....it is nice to have a little bit of down time...Between our schedules, Joe and I have been passing the kiddos off so I can go set-up at my shows...He has been super supportive and has been doing most of the grocery shopping lately to help me out!  I hope everyone has a wonderful break and gets lots of good quality family time!

Some Christmas Vingettes from my Home.....




This year I went for simple silver, white, and soft blue...and cheap...all these little goodies were purchased at the Goodwill pound store for next to nothing....or made at home with bits of paper, burlap, and fabric remnants...My daughter made all of the little ornaments for our little white tree...The soft blue wreath was made out of an old grapvine wreath hot glue and a boa found at the goodwill pound store for around .20 cents b/c it weighed so little...The jars are filled with tinsel, and any other white/creme fill I could find in my house...The bench I made from an old headboard and bench I attached together, painted and then added fabric around the base...had it for sale at a few of my shows but then decided to keep it for myself...Just a few shots, we are continuing to add more and more...little slow this year because of all the business in staging and decorating for Monticello's show and Monmouth's windows....Hope you enjoy....
