One For You...Two For Me...

Ok, so I go out shopping and I buy one gift for someone and two things for me. I have got to stop this! I went out to get a couple of last minute gifts...and of course I had to stop in to see if I spotted any home stuff at a few of my favorite hot spots - ha! And I found a couple of bird houses....I love them both, but the red one melts my heart! I just love the color red on this little birdhouse and I especially love the glass knob on it. I also came out with the Christmas birdhouse, how could I resist it was already marked down to 50% off...I just didn't have the heart to pull it out of my cart, and I love the little brick detail that surrounds the little bird hole oooo so adorable. So, I bought them both.

I also wanted to share with you my wallpaper project that I tackled this summer, I was down in my basement dusting, and realized that I hadn't shared that project with my blogger friends. It was a spur of the moment selection, but I'm sooo pleased with it. My basement just looks sooo very cozy, and it matched perfectly with my couch, don't you agree? boys hang out in the basement with their friends, so it makes for a nice cozy spot for them. Hope everyone is having a happy day. I suppose I'll get started on my baking tomorrow.

Here is my red birdhouse - just lovely isn't it?!

And here is the Christmas's so sweet in person with the fake snow

A snapshot of the walls in my basement, the wallpaper is black and
cream checks - it's just adorable, and it goes nicely with my
Warren Kimble artwork. I have several Kimble prints down there.

I found this couch years ago, and I fell in love

with the fabric....still love it just as much today...


  1. I love your new birdhouses, especially the red one! Great job on the wallpaper. It goes perfectly with your furniture and picture.
    I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

  2. Rose,
    I love the red birdhouse the best. I am trying to stay home until after the post Christmas sales. Just too much temptation out there for me!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  3. Okay I am LOVING that red birdhouse and the black and white checkered wall paper is so perfect! I'm definately with you...I am fighting the house decor shopping urges and I can't wait to do so rearranging once I get all of my Christmas decor down!


  4. Dear Rose
    Beautiful birdhouses!!!! I love them.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!!
    Un beso

  5. OK I'm also guilty of picking up a thing or 2 for myself when I was out shopping. There I confessed, LOL.

    Love the birdhouses, but especially the red one. Very cute. Your wallpaper is wonderful. Besides red I love black and cream check anything. Very nice and cozy area.

    Happy Holidays - Karen
