It's A New Reality Show!!!

Tales From A Slob Cottage!
Yep! That's me! S-L-O-B!

This is my staging area...the ONLY window
where I get decent light so it's the ONLY
place I can take pictures!

Uh, the "props" do pile up!
(yah, the credenza is filled to the
brim too! ;)
Time to tidy and Christmas-ify!

Starting corner at a

...glittery & white...

...birdies & baubles!
Phew! One corner down!
On to the next!

A little PINK is always welcome!

More vintage baubles...

...and a reindeer!

That darn ELYSE !
She had to go and show these adorable
TINY reindeer on her blog...and then
I had to have some too! And they are
adjusting nicely to the weather change
from RI to CA!!!

Now, onto the middle!

Shiny baubles...isn't that a Don Ho song?

Naturally, feathers and more tiny
reindeer are just what the shiny
baubles needed!

When THE NESTER showed
this FEATHER TREE on her
blog for ONLY $9.99...I knew one would be mine!!
(And I got one for my sisters too!) FYI...they are an
extra 25% off thru Dec. 14th AND free shipping when
you spend $50! WOW!

I had planned to make it foofier!
But with all the other things going
on, the simplicity of the reindeer
was rather appealing.

Voila! Clean, tidy...dusted and festive!
For me...this is quite a morph! ;}

  9. I'm in love with those trees; so shabby chic! Come visit me & see what I've created this week. Be sure to leave a comment! I've got to try this project of yours!

  10. How funny - I have a staging window too - the only good light in this whole house - and everything gets piled there after pics! Good to know that someone else does that too. I love all your pics - you have impeccable taste in decor!
