I really don’t know what I’m going to do. Every year I put up the same old tired red and green boring decorations. Same old tree. Same old ornaments. I’m so sick of it all, I can’t bear to even decorate any more. Any ideas?
By the way, you have got to be kidding. You’re GIVING AWAY THOSE GORGEOUS VASES?!?!? Oh, I hope I win them! Now, THAT, I love. Why can’t I decorate my home around the colors that I love? I love blues and greens, but red and green? yuck. It’s enough already. Any more ideas?
As far as I’m concerned, you don’t have to do a damned thing. I absolve you of the need to drive yourself nuts with the whole December mishigas. lol
[side note: Yes, I’m Jewish. Yes, I love Christmas and always have. However, I’m from Indiana. And yes, I often throw in some Yiddish words, but it’s not because I’m Jewish, it’s because I’ve lived in New York for 35 years! We all speak it! haha!]
In any case, I favor more subtle Christmas decorations. And everything doesn’t have to be all red and green. Some of us [not us idiots who live in New York] are blessed to live in a warm climate. Red and Green looks horrible! Some people have rooms that would be wrecked with red and green. You don’t even have to have a poinsettia. Any flower you love is fine with me!
Therefore, I’m going to continue with a series of posts that feature subtle Christmas decorations. In fact, it’s so subtle that some of the photos won’t have anything at all, but the idea is that the colors will hopefully inspire you to try something new. You’ll see…
And of course, each post will feature blue and white Chinoiserie in honor of the blue and white Chinoiserie giveaway!
Mr. Buatta doesn’t appear to have a website. [obviously, he doesn’t need one!] The above link is to a fabulous post on the Quintessence blog
The only reason I know the source here is because I have another photo that’s styled differently but the same table and mirror. [that’s coming in another post]
is it obvious that I have a superficial gurl crush on him?
Oscar de la Renta… may he rest his incredible taste— in peace. Thank you for all that you gave to us in your rich lifetime.
And by now… You have come into contact with my
annoying pop up. Believe me when I tell you that when it first went up, the X to close it was obscured. Oh dear… great way to have your readers hit DELETE! But it’s all fixed now. Don’t forget to sign up to win the vases. Yes… yes… you have to gimme your email address. I promise and hope to get attacked by a foo dog that I will never ever share your email address. Believe me. No one and I mean no one hates spam more than I do! If you missed the pop up or closed it in disgust, you can scroll up to enter. Remember the drawing is on December 3rd.
