Merry Christmas from Holly Cottage

My apologies, but I haven't written on my blog lately - I've been busy sewing slipcovers, painting furniture and making more curtains! Hope to post some pics when everything is completed.

Check out Buy the Yard Interiors in Ancaster, Ontario for some interesting and affordable décor items, furniture, fabric, window treatments and much more. Tell Annie that Carolyn (Staging by Staged to Sell) sent you.

Here's a photo of this year's Christmas tree - decorating is still in progress.

This is part of the mantle decor:

Stair garland with ribbon popping off - fixing it tonight but it means taking the whole thing apart again (ugh):
The bottom two photos are of my latest foray into furniture painting. I bought this desk for $40 and painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and light and dark waxes. I added a French stencil to the front and inside. I posted it on Kijiji and had an offer of $350. Keeping it though. I really like the way it looks in the front hall.
Wishing you all the best for a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year!
