Happy Holidays

Before I log off for the Holidays I would like to share the images of my tree with you. The ornaments I have are a mix and match of store bought and home made creations. (If you look closely, you will even see my new business card used as an ornament. This was a big year for me and Poppyseed and I thought that it deserved special representation during the Holidays). Look closer and you may even spot a picture of a celebrity in my tree. If anyone can tell me who that person is, I will tell you the story as to why they deserve special treatment.
I especially love my tree topper angel. My best friend and I bought matching Peruvian dolls from a street vendor in New York a few years ago and we both use them as tree decor.
As a sign off to this year, I wish you all oodles of happiness, health and love today and for the years to come. I will see you in 2010 my friends.

Emma's dresser - before and after

The orange before dresser belonged to my friend Philippe and as a kid he used it to store all his treasures. It was very important to him to keep the dresser in the family and preserve all its hardware, so his wife commissioned me to give it a facelift and make it more suitable for their little girl. Today's proud owner of this piece is their 2 year old daughter Emma. Happy memories Em!

Bella - 100% preloved

On one of my regular weekend "hunting" trips I came across this little treasure. She was tucked away in the corner and completely ignored. I dug her out, spruced her up a bit and named her Bella, cause that's what she is.

Christmas ornament to my taste

I got this one from my friend Karen as a gift last week and had to share it with you. I guess K knows me so well that I could not have picked a better one myself. Thank you K

Little yellow dresser

This little cutie may have been featured in this blog already, but never in the surrounding as it was in this AM. I visited the studio of Brian Reiser and here is the glam shot of this little piece that I am super fond of. Hope you like it too.
