I finally got my mantle done, it took for-ev-er, but it turned out pretty well I think.
And this pesky pantry, what a job.
You know I don't have much to work with people, what did you expect.
I think if I just had a few more things, then I'd be in business.
Yes, now that it is all up, I think I'll do a few things different next year.
I'm sorry, I had to do it. This is not my house. It is The Arms Family Museum in Youngstown, Ohio. I had the great opportunity to go in and photograph it for them. They do not allow photos in the museum, so they decided to have some in print for people to take home. It was an amazing experience. If you are in the area, you have to see this special Christmas Exhibit. My friend Rebecca works there and would be thrilled if you came. If you love vintage, old mansions and Christmas in general, it will blow your mind. Rebecca was kind enough to give me some passes and I decided that I would like to give two of them to you. Leave a comment telling me about your favorite Christmas decoration and I'll stick all your names in a hat. I'll draw one out and announce the winner on Tuesday morning, that gives you two and a half days or so to comment. You have to play to win people! Oh, and when you go to the museum you will have the opportunity to meet the people who really did the decorating, because it wasn't me. I'm pretty sure some planning was involved and remember from yesterdays post, that's not likely to happen around here:)
P.S. The drawing will of course work best for my local readers, but it you're interested in a road trip, Mi casa es tu casa.
