Paula's Christmas Cottage 2013 Part 2

Hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Back to my visit with Paula
 and a tour of her charming Christmas cottage!

On the landing at the top of the stairs
 sits this charming snowlady, another one-of-a-kind doll
 created by our good friend Evi to yet another decorated tree!

This bedroom is referred to as either
 the "Princess Room" or the "Red Room".
I just call it my room.

Even the tiny upstairs bath has a Christmas tree and decorations.

Now we are heading into the other upstairs bedroom.

Isn't she beautiful?

Paula's mitten pillow.
  She even knit the tiny mittens! 

Sweet little angel bear.

The cottage is positively magical in the evening
 with so many tiny twinkling lights!

Paula's creative and imaginative Christmas decor
 surely gave me the inspiration I was looking for!

I left there with visions of sugarplums
 and all sorts of other enchanting ideas!
Thank you Paula!
Looking forward to the Christmas party!

Next up...
A visit to NEST in Mystic, Connecticut.
You are going to love this amazing shop!

Twinkle, twinkle...Paula is a star
Oh how I wish I could be where you are

Up in Connecticut, I wish I could fly
Then I could see your lights from the sky

Twinkle, twinkle little lights
I sure would love to see those shiny brites!

Thank you Laura for capturing each light,
You've made me happy and full of delight.....

I like the idea of a "Book" from above comment. Breath taking fun!
Love the pops of red in some and green in others, and twikles all about. So fun to visit. It's now a PRIORITY. Thank You.
