it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. .

Well we finally had our first big snowfall, and with it came the Christmas spirit, for me anyway, and not soon enough, as I was having a hard time getting in the spirit this year.
The first snowfall is always so pretty, this church sits across the street from us.

The tree is up, we still have a gold and red theam, our last house was very french country, with alot of dark wood antiques ,rich brown leather, and red accents, so this colour combo was perfect.

Now that the tree is up I can sit back and enjoy.

A keepsake ornament Kailey and I made, her handprint as a snowman family, the date is on the back. We went with aqua because we are changing our tree colours next year, Kailey wants , aqua , pink and purple.

Have a great day... Elle

sweet shabby bicycle

I was lucky enough to come across this sweet vintage bike. I found it on a walk with my dog not long ago, it was perched up against a tree, absolutely free, and calling out to me.

The top photo is what the bike looked like when I found it, the second pic was my insperation. Below are my pictures of what I ended up with.

Lace streamers, my shabby fu fu throw, roses, and a vintage book fill the basket


One of my favourite scarfs

My vintage Longfellow poetry book,

A few other vintage books I picked up a old bookstore 
Funny time of year for a post on a bicycle, I know. It's funny the things you get to when you get a few cold day's projects that have been put off suddenly get done. Have a beautiful day .   Elle
