What does your closet say about you?

I was just doing a little closet cleanup. I'm trying to simplify around here. I noticed that I like to keep things neutral in my wardrobe and my interior design. I add little pops of color with scarves and jewelry and use seasonal decorations to add color to my home. I didn't realize how much I did that until I actually looked at my clothes today. I don't buy clothes very often because I get a lot of different looks by mixing separates and accessories.

A little more Christmas

A look at some vintage ornaments and the linen wreath Brenna made for me.

Christmas 2012

I am way behind but wanted to have a record of 2012 Christmas. This is the first post from my iPad so there is a learning curve. This was so easy to do, that I might star opting more.  This is great!  Ok, I spoke too soon.  I can't get it to scroll down past the first two photos.  I made linen stockings that I designed and added vintage pins to.  I made napkin rings with more of my collected pins.  We cut our own Christmas tree this year, which was lots of fun.  We put our tree in a new location this year so we could sit and admire it while watching tv.  We had a quiet Christmas.  We spent the night with the Fords and watched the kids open presents and see their delight as they saw what Santa delivered.

We left on the 26th to visit Stringhams and Garners in Texas.  We had lots of fun seeing and playing with all the grandchildren.  The holidays went too fast!
