From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

 Welcome to our little cottage in the suburbs of Central Pennsylvania. We've settled in for some almost nine years now and kinda like it here.

Actually this is the first year I really feel like most of my rooms are coming together. I find I do my best decorating over time. Not in one big shopping trip. Although I am as impatient as people come, I really enjoy the process of my house coming together over years of hunting and digging and finding just the right treasure. 
How about you? 
A couple years ago I fell in love with this metallic tree. I couldn't find what I wanted at the right price so I bought some Krylon spray paint and made my own. I love how this little tree shines on my old - fashioned desk. Right now my computer sits here. But in the future I would love to find an antique typewriter to take its spot. Just for decoration, of course! HA! 

Then last year I was shopping at IKEA with one of my Besties and saw this faux sheepskin. L.O.V.E. how it looks at Christmas time especially.  

This year we decided to put our large living tree in the sun room. But I was missing one in the living room as well. Out came my old-fashioned wash tub and a sweet little fir from the local market. They were made for each other. (sigh) 
Of course I have a tree in almost every room.
My good man hung my round chandelier just weeks ago. It looks so good in the space.

I hope this Christmas season is finding you rested and happy. My prayer is that you really enjoy the days leading up to Christ's birth just as much as you do on the 25th!
