My 2 day visit with my dear friend Paula
was everything I hoped it would be....
...full of fun, catching up and sharing, visiting girlfriends,
shopping and Christmas cheer!
Paula decorated every inch of her 19th century farmhouse
in her charming and unique style.
Come on in!
I took hundreds of pictures here and in the shops we visited...
Here are a few to start...
Paula has been collecting Evi's one of a kind dolls for years...
You will see many of her wonderful creations
throughout Paula's home.
Some are displayed all year long...
and a few make an appearance each Christmas season.
I lost count on the number of decorated trees this year....11? 13?
This one sports an old clock face as a tree topper!
See the tiny doily on which Michelle Palmer
has drawn a little winter bird?
It fit perfectly in this giant safety pin from Ballards.
The downstairs bedroom has several trees of its own...
This old English bath house locker was one that I found
at the flea market and traded to Paula this past spring
when we had our sale together.
It looks perfect in her bathroom
and has its own Christmas greens and candle.
There's so much more!
So...stay tuned for more photos tomorrow
and the next day and the next...
...and Carole's Christmas shop at Maynard Greenhouse...
...and Michele's fabulous shop...Taken For Granite...
...and Deanna's shop Gather...all decked out for the holidays...
...and Fran's wonderful shop...The Red Pepper in Chester.
Can you stand it?
It was so fun!
