New Camera, New Friend and Newly Decorated Hutch



I met a fellow blogger that lives in my town. It was Celeste from Celestina MarieDesign and her blog is Southern Day Dreams. It's a beautiful blog and Celeste is soooo creative and such a sweet person. We met and had a wonderful lunch and got to know each other. It felt like we were old friends with many common interests. Of course my camera was still on the fritz, but I finally got a picture of the pretty pumpkin she made for me.
 It went perfectly with my fall decor. So cute. Here's the post she did about our fun meeting, since she was a good blogger and took many pic's that day. Thanks Celeste and hope to see you soon so we can go junkin' together!
 I finally got a new camera. Now I need to figure out how to use it, but I managed to get some shots of my Christmas kitchen hutch.
 I decided to do jadite and red for a fun vintage look.
 I found the green teapot at the thrift store and it matches the Jadite perfectly.
 I've been Christmas decorating and finishing up the craftroom mini re-do. I'll put some pic's up real soon.
 I have some new listings in my Etsy shop. Use the coupon code Santa1 and you'll get 15% off your Etsy purchases. Sale will go through Dec. 7, 2015.
We had a fun but rainy Thanksgiving. Very relaxing. Now the rush begins. I hope you all had a great break. Let the merrymaking begin!

  6. Hi Leslie!
    I love this post - how fun to get meet another blogger and make a new friend! The pumpkin she made you is so darling and I'm in love with how you've decorated your hutch. If I had room for anything more in our teeny tiny house, I'd start a jadeite collection - looooovvvee it. It's so charming with your red things, perfect merry and bright, makes me smile.
    Hooray for your new camera, enjoy!
    Wishing you the happiest of holidays! Sally xo

    1. Thanks, Sally. You know us red girls love to decorate with it and I just love the combination of jadite and red. I've gotta figure out the new camera , but at least I can shoot and upload. It was driving me crazy, not having a camera. Hooray! Happy Holidays to you too!
