Christmas Picture 2014

A couple of years ago I showed a Christmas picture that my genius husband put together for me that I love.  http://chickinthestyx.blogspot.com/2012/11/christmas-art.html  It is just a gift bag that he framed, but I hang it up every year.  What really cracks me up is how many times that post has been pinned.  This year I found a great show poster of a Christmas play done in 1993 in Seattle.  The only problem was finding the right frame.  I finally found this ugly 1980's picture at St. Vincents, it wasn't an exact fit so I made my own matting, painted out the frame and ta-da! 

I really like it and wouldn't be to sad if it doesn't sell, it could be a new addition to my decorations.

Great New Kitchen Chairs

I had the best day yesterday!  I went with my sister, nephew and his wife, to A Very Vintage Whites Christmas Market in Kalispell Montana.  Now this wasn't a little jaunt.  According to Google it was 288 miles, and it took us about 4 hours to get there.  Now if you lived around here you would understand that to most of us, eastern Washington, northern Idaho, and western Montana are unofficially one state, so the drive was no big deal.  Well let me back that up a second and give a huge thank you to my nephew Jeff for driving.  The trip itself was a great part of the day, just think of chit-chatting, a little serious discussions, and sharing some religious beliefs for eight hours.  The show was great, there were 104 venders and they all had great stuff.  I saw a lot of things that have been posted on different blogs and pinned on Pinterest, plus many new things.  And then (key the lights and music please) I found these chairs!!!!!

Mid-Century Beauty

I LOVE mid-century modern furniture.  It doesn't fit in my decorating scheme at home, so that is why I love revamping different pieces to sell.
