Lazy days of Summer

Pack, MOVE, unpack....
that has been summer and I am over it!
So with Bluebird Lane set to open Sept. 17th
I decided to not work 18/7 the last 2 weeks
and enjoy the kids and warm weather before I am
completely buried again.... I am still working 10 hrs
a day or so between unpacking and on the computer 
setting up accounts and ordering....
Most of the kitchen is unpacked,
I have the kids rooms done...
his is all the way done video game themed out
hers is 75 percent done completely changed 
and grown up lots of black, zebra, and pops 
of red, hot pink, and turquoise.
And well this is the new Hubby's office/ my studio
split down the middle, can you spy my white plastic
drawers way in the back?
This is the before we've made progress 
since this but not quite there yet!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Deck the Halls Friday I am glad to be back!

Here is a peek at our entry last Christmas,
the photos are not he best but you'll get the idea.
I may have even showed this before but 
I can't remember! HAHA
I LOVE Annalee Elves
And over the years I have collected the penguins and 
polar bears, it's such a fun display for the kids.
This is my favorite piece I like to decorated
 it with vintage for each holiday.
The apothecary jars are filled with snow and 
a bottle brush tree then a vintage salt and pepper snow couple
those were my favorite things last year.
I put the Manger in the entry China cabinet each year
It keeps it from getting knocked over...
And up top is the very first bottle brush anything 
I did. The kids and I did the houses in '07
and the piece on the right is the first J. Nichelle prototype.
Don't forget to visit our 
Deck the Halls Friday hostess
 the sweet Tammy 
for more Holiday fun and inspiration!

Christmas Swappin' Goodness!

Well Hello bloggy friends I'm back! Well sort of Haha!
Moving is done, unpacking however 
well ya know how that goes....
Working on getting the studio up and running,
 while my internet access is at best iffy out here in the country.
I participated in darling Michele Askeroth's 
I want to show off my swap goodies from
 my sweet Valarie at Glittery Daze and Nights
How adorable is this sparkly creation she sent me?
I was squealing with delight!
I can hardly wait to display them,
but not only did she send that one but this,
 and this one as well!
 I am feeling a bit spoiled, that is a lot of work and the glitter is perfect,
and I just love the embellished Mercury glass bell!
These darling cupcake ornaments were whisked away by
the kids immediately for their trees without even asking.
I adore this party popper I didn't want to open it, 
but I am so happy I did:) look at the vintage goodies
that were hiding inside!
The sweet ornament kit, White Christmas CD, 
BLUEBIRD Christmas card
(click link to see it) and wonderful sheet music
and the rest of the delights will now become
part of our Holidays forever!
What fabulous treasures Valarie,
 you are too sweet and I cherish them all.
I am grateful for a friend like you in my life!

Have a great Sunday!
