merry christmas!

so, i suppose my lack of posts over the last 2+ months indicates that we haven't done much on the house front. it's a recession, ya'll! we're supposed to be saving up for the next big thing - namely the stair & loft railing or the master bathroom, but between weddings, the holidays and the occasional $200 used-furniture purchase, we're getting nowhere.

so, to satiate your need for pics, i'll post our holiday decorations and furniture finds!

this is a simple holiday wreath i made with our christmas tree clippings and a few glass ball ornaments -

we have some modern christmas decorations in our modern living room -

and our traditional christmas tree is in the den -

we put up some of anthony's sketches from italy in the dining room, along with a few other frames with just placeholders so far -

table found at an antique shop ($190) being used as a kitchen 'island' -

dresser found thru craigslist ($40) and chair found at an antique shop ($70) in one of the guest rooms -

bedside table found thru craigslist ($15), currently being used as a side table in our den -

i hope in the spring we can make some progress on our other major house projects. in the meantime, we should be painting the window sashes on the interior and continuing with baseboards and door/window casings....
