Winner and More Christmas Decor

I have a winner !!!!


Sarita YOU are the Lucky Girl !!!! You won the box :) I am STILL working on it as I have still been down and just starting to feel better. So, Sorry, but it will be ready in a few days. :)

I was SO overwhelmed by each of your sweet comments, I asked Hubby to pick four more winners to receive some Vintage Love !! That is , a small crafty pack of Vintage Wallpaper !!! Whoo Hoo !!

Hubby Picked :


Diane, Saturday Finds
Debbie, Pink Roses and Teacups
Rosie, Pondicherry Cottage
Kitty, Reflections from the Stone Nest

Wish he could have picked ALL of you !!!! Please send me addresses and I will get these out in a few days.

I hurt a disc in my back a few weeks ago, and that is what has kept me down, along with my usual leg/chest pain and flare ups. I am sorry to hear about so many of you with the Flu, How awful !!! Prayers lifted for each of you :)

I wanted to show you this REALLY COOL Vintage wooden putz Church hubby and I found last month at the thrift store. It is Huge ! And only $5 ! They like me there I guess :) It is about two feet tall, and has original mica flakes on it, and the original window film. I need to spruce it up a bit, add a few trees, a bit more glitter and it needs a cross on the top. I plan on leaving it out year round. It will replace the dome house and glass trees on the Dining room table. ( Bought those awesome trees at Michael's last year after Christmas :) ) Sorry about my Messy hutch. I am redoing it right now, with my Vintage cream and roses china set. Just need to find a place for my Dutch figures :)I put an aqua tablecloth under my antique lace one. I think it looks Icky . Do you agree ? I REALLY like a very neutral backdrop so that my treasures shine. I am not a Layer-er, lol ! :) Off white furniture, neutral paint colors solid fabrics. Boring huh ?

I guess because my mind goes 24/7 that I need simplicity around me. I cant stand clutter, unless it is all in the same hues. Anyhoo, Rambling here ! :)

Congratulations to the Five winners !!! I wish I could have picked you all !! :)

Hugs,

Rhea

The Rose Room said...

Congratulations to your winners Rhea!!! Love that church, I think you should change the window color to something more subtle and leave the rest of it!

Also agree, the aqua cloth seems to much!

But all the rest is just lovely - lol

Hi Sweetie!
So sorry to hear you have been ill! Get better soon! Man, sure wish I was picked..but alas...I am happy for those lucky girls who are getting some of your amazing works of art!

Wow...what a neat church!!! Never seen one that big. And I do the same thing with my table cloths..put lace over a color cloth. Your aqua trees are so cute too w/that dome.

Get well my friend! Gentle Hugs!

Hi, Rhea,
Congratulations to all the lucky winners! I love your vintage church and a great buy, too! Hope you are having a lovely week! Vicki

Cathy said...

Hi Rhea,

I hope you feel better soon. I fell down an entire flight of steps full of ice last week and now both my butt cheeks and my lower back is totally black and blue and I haven't been able to walk very well, so I totally understand what you are going through.

I'm loving that church. How awesome is that going to look all redone and refurbished! Can't wait to see it.
