I Love the Holidays!

Hi All,
Just a few pictures around the cape.  I have been getting ready for a Christmas House Walk coming up next Sunday.  Sorry some of the pictures are small.  Took them with my phone.

Need to do a few more touches to the tree!  Do you see our sweet beagle?

Hope you are all enjoying the holiday season!

Readying for the Christmas season!

Hi All,
I am have been busy decorating the cape house for a holiday house walk.  The inside is ready, except for the tree.  I have a little more to do on the outside, but here is a sneak peek.
Our first snow, this year!
This was 2 years ago in the den.  I always change things up a bit, so stay tuned!

The low is 8 degrees tonight!  Stay warm!

I Love Halloween!

Hi All,
Fall time is here in Illinois!  It is suppose to reach a low of 32 degrees tonight.  Brrrrr!!!  Soon I will be changing out the fall decor here at the cape house, so thought I would share some of it with you.
I love my old phone that I bought at an antique shop.  The brass lamp came from an estate auction from a dear family friend.

I keep my cookbooks in an old crate atop a milk basket.  My tea bags are in the glass jar

My precious Granny's picture atop her Hoosier cabinet, along with a basket full of fall foliage

I love to the decorate the nook above my kitchen sink with seasonal decor

Valerie Parr Hill lighted pumpkins sit on a vintage picnic basket, on top of Granny's piano.  Granny also had this picture above the piano in her home

Olden picture of me and my Dad tennising in Grant Park, Chicago.  Me and my Brenda in the other photo.

Close up of the wreath on the mantel.  The lights are candy corns!

Little vignette atop our mail table.  Granny, Cousin Susan and her Anna in the picture.  I love them!

Hope you all are enjoying Fall!

Florida

Hi All,
Just a note from me to you from Daytona Beach. We bought a town home here last November. I have been busy traveling back and forth over the months, getting it furnished and homey.
This is the first trip hubby and I have taken down here, just to enjoy our new vacation home.

We had a nice walk on the beach, this morning

New Cabinet In My Bath

Hi All,
I am so pleased with my new, old looking storage cabinet in my bathroom.  Here are a few pictures!
I had it mounted above the toilet...

An inside look...

I added some cute red checked liner paper...

I love how it turned out.   Now all my toiletries, etc in one place!
