Okay, Enough, Already

The snowstorm of 2009 in a nutshell:

Day one = excitement is in the air!
It's going to snow!
Should we cancel our party?

Day two = It snowed!!!
20+, beautiful, fabulous, fluffy inches of winter fun!
Big fat fun, lots of shoveling, snowballs, and sledding!
Life is cozy, beautiful and warm in front of the fire!
What the heck, we'll just postpone our party!

Day three = The snow has turned on us.
It's losing its luster, turning brown and ugly!
The natives are getting restless
Hubby's getting CRANKY
The kids don't want to play outside anymore
For God's sake how many times do I have to tell my G@d da#n@d! kids to take their boots off before they come into the house!?

So, how's it going at your house?

La Joie De La Vie

The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful!

This is where you'll find me today, enjoying a great fire in between shoveling the snow!

It's one of the "Joys of Life"!

Time flies!

I got so busy I never had a chance to post more photos of last weekend's Chartreuse sale!

Time flies!

Today is my 21st wedding anniversary!

Time flies!

I'm scrambling now because suddenly it's two days before my annual Christmas party and the decorating still isn't done!

Time flies!

And it's not going to stop, so I better get busy!

This Weekend at Chartreuse

This is the last weekend we'll be open at Chartreuse and Co. until the third weekend in January.

We've decorated the owner's 1898 house, inside and out for the holidays and everything's for sale!

Stop back tomorrow for a sneak peek of what's inside!

Barn Girl

This Barn Girl is getting tired!
Our two day holiday show at The Barn was last week.

And five weekends down with one to go at my other barn,
It's been fabulous, with great sales and happy customers, but I need a break!

I'm looking forward to focusing on the holidays!
(Not to mention cleaning my house!)

That mirror I'm pictured in?
It's an awesome 75 year old door I turned into a mirror.
It's SOLD!
The new owner is going to attach it to the wall and put a sink in front of it in her powder room.
Way cool!

The Barn's Holiday Show

I've been so busy I forgot to mention we're having a two day holiday show at The Barn tomorrow and Thursday!

The barn is loaded with lots of great gift ideas, jewelry, antiques, architectural salvage pieces, etc.

Send me an e-mail if you'd like directions!
