Rustic Christmas

Morning everyone.  It’s a good day despite some minor annoyance this morning, though I speak for a better day. It’s all about attitude so I’m definitely working on that personally. Today I’m bringing a bit of rustic to our lives.  I might have spoken about this before in years past, but my family and I get into theme decorating each year.  This year we all sort of reverted to the traditional classical Christmas colors. Though one of my favorite themes is rustic country and I’ve collected quite a bit of ornaments and decor surrounding that particular setting. Though honestly I really love all themes and the real joy comes from being able to create beautiful displays that bring smiles and happiness and well honestly they serve as great backdrops for family photos… we’re vain like that.  Laughs.

So while I didn’t have much time to go digging into my inventory to do something a little more with this scene I hope it still inspires you in creating your own wonderful themed Christmas. If you want a little rustic, then visit all the wonderful creators below to grab some of their amazing works.

Enjoy!

Leave a little sparkle wherever you go

It’s only the beginning of the month and for some reason I feel like it’s almost already going by too fast.  I think it’s me just pushing myself to get a lot done and out of the way sooner rather than later.  Lots of events going on with an abundance of holiday decor and I’m just showing a few things today and more to come in the next days.

Have a great one!

Well not much to say this afternoon as I’m literally here only to publish this post and then I’m out the door.  I’ll return to normal some day soon. Maybe. Normal is boring right?

Until then.. have a great one!

Pueblo Maravilla

009ps2

Most of you know who have been following me for a while now might know from my ramblings that I have a Mexican heritage.  My mother was from Mexico, but she’s been here since she was a child and married my father born in this country as well as my siblings and me.  We have a bit of a laugh each time we think about it as each of us were born in different parts of the country.  From the far west coast in the state of Washington to the southern part of Texas and the eastern coast of the Carolinas and that’s just three of us!  I think the only place they left untouched was the north eastern part.

I wholeheartedly embrace both cultures and read and speak both languages and write only minimal Spanish.  The part that often takes people by surprise and only makes my family poke fun at me is that I don’t eat a lot of Mexican food. I am not talking about the more commercialized foods like tacos and enchiladas  — it’s more like ‘fideo con pollo‘ or ‘frijoles a la charra‘ that while I can eat it my taste buds would prefer not to.  It’s like anything else some things you like others you don’t.

So when I saw this Pueblo Viejo gacha set by unKindness for the Epiphany I was really looking forward to putting together a scene as it felt like there was an affinity to it.  It made me remember some of my trips into Mexico through the border towns of Tijuana from trips to San Diego and Reynosa from a trip to Texas. While those places didn’t look so much like this it had remnants of this.

I hope you enjoy my little set and all the pieces have varying land impact from 1 to 34 for the rare church.

Enjoy!

Today I’m showing the Victorian Doll House by Pillows, which you caught a peek of the inside with my post yesterday.  It runs about 36 for land impact and it’s available in both a light and dark version and can be found at Draftsman.

The texturing of the house on the outside reminds me a little of my paternal grandmother’s home when I was growing up and we visited her home in Washington state.  It didn’t have a porch like this one, but did have some steps going from the front door. Her landscaping was always so pretty and there was always rose bushes of different colors, as she loved roses.  I didn’t use any here, but I added some violet poppies to give it a little color.

Hope you enjoy your Tuesday!!
