Winter Sideboard



It's okay, you can call me lazy if you want.

 When I decorate with my red dishes they stay out until after Valentine's Day.

  1.  So I try to put all the basic layers down first.
  2.  Then the Christmassy items go in.
  3.  After Christmas the top layers are stored away and we are good to go for the rest of winter.
  4. Easy Peasy!






I like a layered, natural look that is non-structured. 




We bought this sideboard a few years ago when an antique dealer was closing shop. The runner is made out of an old remnant of gold fabric.
 I love Audubon prints and cardinals are especially pretty in the winter.  







Life is too short and stressful to be fussing over a lot of things that aren't going to matter a hill of beans ten years from now. So relax, fix things the way you like them. Step back...call it finished...and enjoy your family and friends.




Come back later in the week and I will show the Christmas layer....or I might not even get around to adding that layer....


I have been experimenting with different fonts. Blogger has a bunch to choose from. What do you think about this one? Keep it or go back to a plain one?
