If Furniture Could Talk ...

Pin It!
I'm pretty sure if our furniture and accessories could talk, they'd have quite the stories to tell ... especially around the holidays.
 
 
They'd share how they watch in amusement each year at the *pained* look on my face as I stare at them (while pacing, stopping only to tilt my head back and forth and scratch my head), wondering how I'll decorate them *this* year:
 
 
An *every day* piece would share its delight as Mr. Reindeer moved on in for the holidays:
 
 
This small white pitcher would tell you how it laughed (and grimmaced, just a bit) as I gently *shoved* holiday greenery, berries and light up branches down into it:


Our otherwise plain lantern would tell you how it loves the new *hat* I concocted, made of greenery, ornaments and glittery garland:

 
 
A bowl once filled with seashells would share its excitement with you as it welcomed holiday ornaments, pinecones and snowflakes:
 
 
Annnnd, I'm positive our mirror would tell you it had *nooo* what was going on when I unexpectedly covered it in Christmas cards from years gone by (especially since I usually put them on one of our Christmas trees). 
 

 
"We Say Merry Christmas" and more greenery seemed only fitting to place above everyone sharing their holiday cheer!


But, before we know it, those pieces will be empty again after the holidays ... they'll see that same pained expression on my face as I wonder "what next?"  For now, I hope that they continue to enjoy the holiday merriment that has been added:
 
 
So, tell me ... what would *your* furniture and accessories say if they could talk?

Come on over and play at:

Eeek! I hope it's better now ... I accidentally hit "publish" yesterday when it was still in draft mode. Oops.

Your buffet always looks fabulous and this Holiday season is no exception. Love it...and your such a good story teller :)

Maria Morley said...

I love, love, LOVE your decor, Becca! You are very talented. And putting the Christmas cards around the mirror? What a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing the Christmas inspiration with us.

BEAUTIFUL Becca!! Love your sign and love the shot looking thru the mirror at your mantel, so pretty!

Carol said...

So pretty, Becca! I really like the cards around the mirror. If I had not already made mine into a little book, I'd be tempted to do just that. You have inspired me to do something more with the mirror in my entry, but I'm doing the "frown and head cocked to the side" right now trying to decide just what that will be....lol!

Oh my furniture would definitely be saying, "Oh no, here she goes again!"

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Becca, Your Christmas decor is beautiful! Love our pretty buffet.

Designs By Pinky said...

My furniture would say, "where are we?" this year:):) It is fun trying to decide, tilting my head, frowning, and finally coming up with what to do here in this new house:) I love how you did this, especially the pitcher with the lit branches. I gave mine to my daughter and haven't gotten new ones yet:( XO, Pinky

Shelia said...

Hi Becca! Everything you do is just exquisite! I've also wondered what our furniture could say, especially the olden pieces we've acquired. Now your decorating is so beautiful!
Thanks for popping in to see me.
be a sweetie,

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Becca...beautiful, beautiful holiday vignette...
Hmmm, I think my furniture is saying...Oh no...not the glitter again...!

thistlewoodfarm said...

Hahahaha! Becca....you are the best! Most of my accessories are talking to each other....up in the attic! That's where they had to go to make room for all the Christmas joy!

blessings,
