Our Parlor & our hallway right outside the parlor.
Make sure and check out the pic of my gold, frankincense and myrrh. This was a Christmas gift, such a neat gift!
The secretary in our hallway was a wedding gift from my parents. They bought it at an antique shop and refinished it for us.
The star on our tree was made by my mother from material left over from one of her mother's dresses. It was used on my family tree for as long as I can remember. Now my mom lets me use it. Thanks mom!
The floral hanging on the fireplace was done by me! I aam still quite proud. I fell in love with Hobby Lobby that day!
Check out the small purse hanging from the knobs on the secretary. This was my great grandmothers. It is one of the old metal purses. Can you imagine carrying this as your purse? This wouldn't hold 1% of what's in my purse!
The couch and 2 chairs in the parlor are from my great grandmother. She used them for many years and had them reupholstered at least twice that I remember being told.
The piano was given to us by my stepdad. He got it in an old barn years ago and refinished it by hand. He even squeezed walnuts from his tree to get pure stain. It is from the early 1800's. It is one of my prized possessions.
The santa on the mantle was made by my mother. She used old coats from her mothers closet. The fur is all real.
The floral wall hanging is my wedding bouquet. We had it preserved-it was deep froze for a few months-another one of my favorite things!
I hope you enjoy our parlor!
Hopefully next week I will have some Valentines Day decor out!
Hostess with the Mostess...at least thats the goal!
I am a twenty something (would love to say I could still round down to twenty, oh well, sad day) living in East Tennessee in "Mayberry" and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else! Things are slower, quieter, and kinder here.
I love to "put on the dog" whenever my husband can handle it. I am married to my favorite person who unfortunately doesn't share the same love of entertaining that I do. How unfortunate is that!
I am a planner. I love to plan. I will plan everything-even your life if you will let me!
This blog is mainly for me to sort out my thoughts and have all my plans in one place. I think it seems so organized to have a blog. Therefore, I must have one!
