~ With thoughts of Cinderella and her ride to the ball ~

I've designed a little theatre for my studio mantle

Which enjoys the pink Christmas decor!
You can see how tiny it is!

I've been decorating for Christmas.
What?  Before Thanksgiving?
We celebrated the Fall holiday on November 1st,
so I could have a longer Christmas season!
{for those of you who aren't into Christmas yet, that is how I feel when
I see pumpkins and Fall decor before October!}

~ to each his own ~

This was my Thanksgiving table centerpiece

~ Cinderella and the Golden Carriage just delights me so! ~

And don't you love this wild toy horse I found at a thrift store?

My Motto!!!

I found this wall quote this summer on Zulily.
It is made by

I've just placed it above my studio doors, how appropriate!

Oh Violet how I do delight in your magical sense of play. You truely create magic in your home. The precious theatre and the found horse drawn pumpkin these are whimsical visions to hold on to. Yes I've started to add some wintertime magic into our home for the Christmas season.

ABSOLUTELY a surprise and treat for me on this fun and early Saturday morning. I knew I woke up with a thrill, and now coming to see you has fulfilled that urge. Violet, that sweet little horse, you caught the light in his mane so perfectly. And we both are in this Cinderella mode, and truth be told, it has never left me.

I love your idea of celebrating Thanksgiving early so that you can get into the Christmas decorating mode. The mantle, the magic....that's what it's all about. The ultimate "TALE" if you will, that requires just enough faith, the size of a mustard seed. The great thin about our fairytale is that it's true, when you believe. AHHH! I always get chills!

Your vintagy pink trees are a never ending crush for me. HAVE FUN TODAY my friend!

Good morning dear Violet.
This is just magical! I love your little Theatre. And the little thrift shop horse, he is great! Don't you just love wandering through the shop? There is one very close to my home that I just love.. You never know what you will find there.
Thank you for visiting and kind thoughts about Oliver..
Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
