Happy Monday everyone. My fun little feather trees have finally arrived. I just fell in love with them when I saw them in NY. They are 27" high, made of Styrofoam and feathers. You can actually stick pins in to decorate them if you choose. Aren't they the cutest? I'll be listing them for the twelve days of Christmas. They are the perfect addition to your shabby chic holiday decorating.

I finished up a few pieces this weekend. I need to wait a couple of days to let them cure before I distress them to give them that lovely shabby chic look. I was thrilled to find two matching tables last week. They are hard to come by and I always have customers looking for them, especially bedside tables.

If you read my post last week you know that I painted the wrong hardware for this buffet. Well I found the hardware and finished it up. The pieces always look so different with their final touches. This heavy piece is hopefully off to the shop this week. I just need to enlist someone to help me move it.

I have been having fun playing with my Christmas window. I still have to make some adjustments but this is a sample. I'd love some opinions.
Thanks for visiting ...

Hi Jennifer,
What wonderful pink feather christmas trees you found..they should sell very well. I think your furniture is amazing....your work and craftsmanship is rare, indeed. I've been seeing everyone's window for the 12 days of Christmas and am mystified at all the talent around MMP. I haven't been able to accomplish a thing with regard to the "window". Thanks for sharing and have a great week!
