christmas rush around




 I am finally getting around the putting up the Christmas decorations in our home! I cannot believe
how long it has taken me this year.  I have been really distracted trying to get on top of
all of those little jobs on my very long 'to do' list. You know the list.... we all have them &
especially if you are an ideas kind of girl! 

I bought these gorgeous cane baskets awhile ago now. They are perfect for storing our
fresh eggs from our hens... 



At the time I loved the black trim...but when I finally got around to ordering some Annie
Sloan ChalkPaint (another thing ticked off the list), I couldn't resist painting over the black.




 It's taking about three coats to cover the black...



but being about 40°c outside today it's not taking long to dry at all...




I love how fresh they look now... is there nothing white paint can't fix!

  1. And the ASCP Pure White is my favorite!!! I just painted three pieces of vintage furniture with it in November so that we would have a white Christmas cottage. I love your baskets...and those eggs! yum Merry merry xo

  2. I am just getting my decorations up as well! I have been doing a few Christmas shows and I haven't felt really well so I just have less energy and busyness when I do feel well! I hope we get everything decorated before Christmas!
    Good to see your pictures! I have a few pieces of furniture yet to paint!
    Christmas Hugs,
