Well, I hesitated on whether to show you the Christmas that was on display at Nell Hill's, but what the heck. If I don't do it now I will forget and it's never too early for Christmas right? At least it isn't in the retail world. Last week I showed you how Garrity's was decorated for Fall, and this is Mary Carol's main store: Nell Hill's, decorated for Christmas (although she said they were not finished). I haven't been to the Briarcliff location yet this year, but I'm hoping to go for the Christmas Open House.
At all three of Mary Carol's stores there are two things that impress me the most. The furniture and the artwork. It is woven through the rooms with the fluffy stuff (like Christmas) on top.This is a beautiful distressed hutch chock full of happy whimsical Christmas.
Check out this ginormous cow bust. It is life size and would require a nice large room.
See what I mean about the artwork?
Ribbon Alert! Ahhhhhhh!!!
Bright and fun colors for Christmas
Love the painted wicker chairs
Striking Navy Room
Pretty, pretty Christmas, and not too shabby for "not being done"! I can only imagine how beautiful it will be when it is. Hope you enjoyed the field trip!
I had my dr's appointment about the results of my latest CT Scans. I wish I could announce some awesome news, but I can't. The lung tumors are still stable, the liver tumors have grown...insert 'pout' here. So this week, I will hear from the doctors at NIH and might be taking a field trip to Bethesda, not nearly as fun as Nell Hill's. :) So I will just keep plugging along, doing as much as I can and not get discouraged over all the things I can't/don't do any more...that's not to say I haven't been down, I have. Questions like why the heck am I doing chemotherapy when it is yeilding NO results except more growth (just to name one)...but I have to keep moving forward. I just can't give up.
I will hopefully be back tomorrow with a, guess what....a tablescape. I wanted to play along with tablescape party going on at The Lettered Cottage. I haven't done a tablescape in 2012, which I can't believe! It's been forever...so I will be back tomorrow and have a pretty Fall table for you to look at. See you then.
