Happy Friday Everyone!!
Before posting my Foyers Christmas decor I want to send a huge Thank you out to Jeanne!!
I was the lucky winner of her giveaway.
Here is what I won.
I borrowed the photo from her blog but I will be sure to show off my goodies when they arrive.
I’m sooo excited.
Thank you again, Jeanne!
A few more things I want to share real quick…
1st off I want to show you what I purchased online a couple of weeks ago.
I forgot to take its photo earlier, and now it is trapped inside my Bakers Cabinet but I think you can still see it.
See it back there???
Yep, I found an authentic antique yellow ware Coffee Canister!!!
My very 1st true old YW Canisters!!
And I got a bargain! $18 for the canister + $10 shipping.
Total $28.00~~!! Yes, I’ll take it!! :)
Next, I have had this set of candles for years.
But this year I decided I didn’t like how bright they were.
So I thought, I wonder if I could stain them?
So I gave it a try.
Here they are before:
And here they are after:
I think they turned out pretty neat looking.
Of course, they can never be lit, but I never burn this type of candles anyway. :)
I thought this was also neat to see. I was comparing my Christmas decor last year to this year.
WOW! What a difference a year can make!
Here is what I mean….
Christmas 2009 Living Room
Compared to this year…
Or how about the Dining Room…
The changes might not be as noticeable to you, but I couldn’t get over it.
But to be honest….
I think, I like the way I had my LR decorated last year best. I moved my tree this year. Every year it goes in the corner, this year I wanted a change.
And I don’t care for it.
Next year…. it’s going back to its corner!
~I’ll be sure to show some more Before and After photos when I get the rest of the rooms posted.
Okay, now Finally onto my Foyer Decorations.
This is one areas of my home I have such a problem with.
I don’t know why, but for some reason I really struggle with this space.
Anyway…. here it is.
I keep all my most favorite ornaments together on this tree.
Aren’t they prim perfect!! :)
~*~ We are in the process of removing all the carpet from our home. Hopefully this summer we will have the staircase finished. Until then… Please try to ignore the ugly carpet. ~*~
Oh, one more thing….
My mirrors are not dirty. They are antique and the glass is old and worn in spots.
Oh, and here is a photo of the Foyer last year.
This year looks much better!
I hope you enjoyed the little tour of my Foyer.
Also I have listed more of my Christmas collection on my website.
Here is what is new over there….
More Christmas collection still to come. I just need to get their photos taken and get them listed.
I have also listed this large Wall Box Cupboard.
I purchased it awhile back and could never find a spot for it.
So if you are interested it is listed in the "Reproduction Primitives" category.
I will try to get more items listed soon.

Take Care Everyone!!
And Prim Filled Blessings To You All!! ;)
