It seems that no matter what semblance of disarray my house is in, if the living room mantel and dining room table look nice, then I am much happier. The past couple weeks have been busy ones. I have been involved in special shopping days at our Halifax Seaport Farmers Market, doing tablescaping workshops. So besides all the boxes of Christmas decorations that are sitting around, I also have big baskets of tablescaping supplies that I take in to the Market on those special days! Can you picture it? You really don’t want to.
Recently I celebrated my birthday, and my dear friend, Holly, arrived at my door with this gorgeous vintage sled!! I died!!! No really…I did!!! I picked up this beautiful bundle of berries while I was at the Farmers Market and popped them into a tarnished silver pitcher. As I was showing my daughter what I did with the sled, she picked up this reproduction antique tin bucket and set it on the sled. It looked so cute we left it there.
So I breathed a sigh of relief. The mantel is almost done as well. I will show you soon!
