Just a bit of Christmas...

I'm trying to come out of my shell a bit
when it comes to photographing mine and Mr Twig's home.
Baby steps here, so I snapped a couple of small Christmas vignettes
which are still very much evolving.
Keep in mind that practically anything Christmas-sy in these photos
was purchased at the amazing, incredible Dollar Tree!




More to come in the days the meantime,
stay warm, enjoy family, and remember The Reason for the Season!

Hey Girl, that hall tree is awesome, and I recognize your hat hangin' there! Love your white dishes in the cool cupboard, is that a zinc tray? love it! Now, it's not so hard showing house stuff is it? Just repeat after me. "I CAN show pictures of my house, I CAN show pictures of my house". See, that's it. We love it cause we love you... and besides you have some really great things!
I accidently lost your comment, but I retreived it from the email post. I put it through on my comment. I'm sorry, do-dah here. I value your comments, I sure don't want to lose any of them!
Have a great Sunday!

It is a "weird" feeling at first . . . sharing your home on your blog . . . isn't it? But you know, we all LOVE seeing other creative people's homes. It's always inspiring. What you've shared so far is just darling. I just bought those snowflakes. I heart the DT so much.

Thanks for sharing, can't wait to see more of your lovely home.

Hi Anne:
I love your Christmas vignettes. They're lovely, inspirational peeks into your life. Thanks also for the reminder about the Season. I think everyone can use a gentle nudge every now and then. Have a great Sunday, my friend.

Good Morning Dear Sweet Friend
I love the hall tree decked out for the holiday.
And I have quite a thing for white dishes... especially plates and pitchers.
they call my name from the cracks and crevices of every junk store across the midwest.
I have quite a stash...some I sell from time to time and others well..they are reserved for the fam and me.
Im glad to see you getting into the Christmas mood a bit more...Does a person good...
Have a wonderful restful Sunday...I'm thinking about you...donna

Dollar to my ears and pocketbook!
I know what you mean. Showing photos is just like standing nekkid in Anthro's window...right?

Hello Sweet Anne!

Doesn't the Dollar Tree ONCE AGAIN that we can make our homes uniques ours on a very low budget. I purchased 15 of thos large snowflakes and they are hanging in the uncoveredwindows of my home. Today I can look through them at our first snow (arrived yesterday!) I swear they look like glas once hung up with the little clear suction cups.

your friend,

Unknown said...

Very pretty, Anne! I was just at Dollar Tree yesterday and found some fun things to decorate with. Love that store!


Polly said...

Hi Anne!

Your house looks so pretty! Thank you for letting us into your home! Is your china French Countryside by Mikasa? If so, that is wild, because I have that pattern too!!! If not, it looks very similar!

Take care!


Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Love your new blog header and your new business card. The desk at which you create is gorgeous! And all your images inspiring! Blessings, :) Tammy

Unknown said...

Oh this is exciting to see your home. I can't wait for more! Love the hall tree.

Dixie said...

Gotta love that Dollar Tree!

We camped in the Kerrville area a few weeks ago and I'd hoped to get by your booth/shop.. but it didn't happen. We did make it to the Saturday mass... just before the holiday parade! Hope we'll get back there after the first of the new year!

Thanks for visiting, commenting, following and/or blogging about my 300th post giveaway! Good Luck!

Blessing. Dixie

The Feathered Nest said...

I love seeing glimpses of your home Anne! Believe me, there are parts of mine I would show on my blog!!! I hope you've had a good weekend, I know you had to work....Wishing you a wonderful week ahead sweet friend, xxoo, Dawn

V I N T A G E O L O G I E said...

You have no reason to be shy about showing your home pictures ... they're wonderful!

I purchased tons of dollar store ornaments this year, like the glittered reindeer {2 for a buck ; 0 } ... then if the gypsy prince ruins them it doesn't break the bank!

MORE pictures ... please!


Anne Lorys said...

Thank you all SO much for your encouragement and kind words! I really love the way the holiday decorating has been turning out, considering we can't have a tree (cat drama, LOL).

I'll continue to give you a peek here and there, but it's like Debbie said, I ain't no big fan of standing in the window of Anthro naked! ;-)

Love y'all!
