Guess What's Coming?


Yes...it's that time of year!
I will be off to Connecticut later on this week
 to visit my dear friend, Paula...
...whose charming cottage is already decorated for Christmas
 and ready for me to photograph ...
...to share with you!
Did you catch the Christmas 2012 photos of her home 
 in the Better Homes and Gardens publication "Christmas Ideas" ?
It's in the stores now!

And, that's not all...


Remember Noelle?
We will be visiting Michele at Taken For Granite in Stony Creek...
...I simply can't wait to see the fantastic displays
 she and her team have dreamed up for Christmas 2013!


Paula has a few other shopping surprise stops for me...
...and my little trip to Connecticut would not be complete
 without visits with my special friends
 Carole of Maynard Greenhouse in Old Saybrook
 and
 Deanna of Gather in Ivoryton.

So stay tuned...
...for some fun photos of inspiring spaces created by
 these amazing, artistic and imaginative women! 

I'm so excited!
can you tell?
:)

Laura,
I cannot wait to see pictures of Paula's home. I found Cathy from Cheswick that made her beautiful birdhouse angel and I had Cathy make me one last year. I love her vintage angels. I just did a sneak peak post of my upcoming Christmas decor and I have that lovely angel that I got so inspired to have after seeing Paula's. I cannot wait to see how she decorates for this year.
