I know I’ve been tempting some of you with reports of my new red door. So here is the proof.

I was gripped with the urge last week to completely cranberry cherry berry RED our front room. SO. I painted the door and whipped up some valances for the window. I must say I just LOVE how they all turned out. Of course reds don’t photograph exactly the way you want them too. But, this is about as crisp and cheery a red you can find.

I’m working on the robin’s egg blue accents for the rest of the room — but until they are complete, the red is all that is noteworthy 🙂

(Here is my current inspiration on Pinterest)

And, I completely forgot in the last post. I do have proof that there ARE hedgehogs in the baby’s nook. All the pictures were completely devoid of any furry creature. Here are the stuffed animals, and the final wall (complete with painted birdcage and hanging artwork).

And so that is the current state of things — can’t wait to bring the little lady home to the Inn soon 🙂

Happy brand new baby year. The old man of 2010 seems quite glad to have passed on to better things.

So. Mrs. T did manage to complete her TY-notes in time to celebrate the new year with Mr. T.

New Year’s Eve. We had a delightful afternoon, watching the first Lord of the Rings (MEMORIES!). Then enjoyed a country Cajun dinner of pork chops, collard greens, cucumber salad and roasted potato sliders (another post will detail my recipes).

New Year’s Day. We woke up early, and with coffee in hand, I attacked the kitchen. I absolutely HAD TO domain the bakers rack. It had started having a mind of its own — and I needed to go through and reorganize (make a bit of room for some new treats Mr. T got me for Christmas). That afternoon we headed over to a dear friends New Year’s Day Fete. I just couldn’t go empty handed, so I scurried up to the Green Room and created these little darling wreaths out of simple materials.

1. Steal 3 little wreaths from Christmas Tree (by little I mean, 3″ in diameter)
2. Plug in [NEW] Mini Hot Glue Gun
3. Snip felt into flowers & bows
4. Glue bow and attach with feathers to wreath 1
5. Glue flowers and attach to wreath 2
6. Glue flowers and mini-gems to wreath 3
7. Admire and adore 🙂

Wreaths tucked on a little bit of paperboard with pink striped wrap beneath.

Close ups of each (just for fun). My favorite was the feather one. SO. Presh 🙂

So. I brought these along, wrapped in brown paper looking oh so cute. As I take down the tree today, I intend to transform each of the little wreaths into sweet winter cheery creations. So excited for what feathers, gems and a bit of glue will do for them!
