Ideas for home decorating that is easy on the budget!
Saturday, December 25, 2010
The holidays have been very exciting and very stressful. Lots of things going on as I am sure there is with you. First of all, I would like to thank you for your kind visits to my blog. I so enjoy home dec, floral design and in general making our home comfortable and inviting. Making people feel welcome and relaxed is truly my main goal. It is not entertaining, but hospitality as the Bible teaches. Next week I will begin to pack boxes and get all the Christmas decorations back in their place. Then as you can see from the pictures, I have already started doing custom designs again. These two were for a girl with a french country style home, so of course chickens (a rooster in this case) grapes, baskets etc are called for in the design. It is also my favorite of all the styles in home decor. Because I can never remember to take pictures of the process, I will just give you some particulars. The large one (without the rooster) was 32 inches wide and about that tall. Her chandelier was 39 inches from the table top and her table was 88 inches long. The container was metal which also goes along with the style and it was approximately 10 inches wide. Just standard floral supplies with everything glued in and sprayed with a finish to protect the flowers. The rooster was smaller because it sits in front of a window on a farm table. So here goes and I love it! No telling what will be coming up next. One thing for sure in the near future is painting my kitchen cabinets! That will be quite a job! I am slowly getting some things done to this wonderful home that God has given to us. Thank you again for your visits this year! I send blessings to you and your family as we begin this new year!
