My first Christmas decoration of the season! I was so excited when a dear friend from back home brought by this Red Beauty Holly.
I love the red berries on this deer resistant plant. My dear friend must have know about all the deer here. I tied a velvety bow on top because I love the teal/red color combo.
But this needed something more.
So I threw this beauty in a champagne bucket and wrapped some ribbon trim around the base.
Then I got sidetracked with a book.
"Williamsburg - Decorating With Style" is produced by Tricia Foley with photographs by Jeff McNamara & text by Catherine Calvert. I loved the spread on red and white fanciful dining chair slipcovers . It's Christmasy.
I threw in some pretty aqua lace, which reminds me I must get back to finishing my linen and lace project from couture school.
But first I have a sleeper sofa and two chair slipcovers to complete. And some pillows to ship to New York.
Now what was I really doing before I started blogging on a whim?
