Happy Holidays...
today it feels like June so we are out in the garden for a bit of digging and tidying up

I was very late in decorating for the Holidays but at least I got a few things done...just in time!

This year I decided to put the Christmas tree in one of these rolling laundry carts

It actually worked out great because I can roll it around to clean up the dry tree needles and these are somewhat waterproof so no worries with the floor

Millie is my helper and she found this nice little quilt heart decoration 
to use as a pillow...thanks Millie

 Simple is usually better for this little house 
I bought the hand sewn calico quilt hearts 
and tucked them into a French Baguette basket

Little stacks of red books look festive in an old rusty lantern

It's tangerine season 
so I always try to use them in garden trugs and baskets

These are the Satsuma variety and they are so delicious and really easy to peel...if you see them in the Farmers Market definitely try them.  

The mantel got a little pine cone swag and I will light a few candles in the evening

The front door...
just a small pine wreath and some vintage mattress ticking swags

Please take time to 
enjoy the Holiday season with 
your family and friends
and I will see you soon!

  8. Satsumas have been a family tradition as far back as... the only way to purchase them (in Oregon) was imported from Japan - they were in a small crate and individually wrapped in paper.

    Now we have them in our garden, here in SoCal!

  9. Belated Merry Christmas Kelley! Your home looks beautiful for the holidays!

  12. Happy Holidays Kelly,
    Thank you for all the inspiration I get from you!
    And your screen door!!! the little oak leaf cut out--adorable!
    Did you make it?

  13. The rolling cart is inspired Kelley - and are they your own satsumas? (if they aren't don't tell me, I like to keep my illusions and your citrus orchard is the stuff of dreams!)

  14. A tree in a rolling cart - genius!! Best wishes for a great 2014, Michele
