The Powder Room

Standing back, she looked around the one room she had finished decorating; the room she would spend a good deal of her morning preparing for the day. Hearing the small quiet mews, she looked over and smiled at the kitten giving its approval. The powder room was well decorated and cozy for those days after a long days work, or for those mornings where a few extra minutes of pampering were well needed.

The Sitting Room

Often we find ourselves standing in a small empty space wondering what we should fill it with. Sometimes, we create a lavishly decorated room that leaves people admired with out skills. Other times, we go with a minimalist approach and stand back taking in the room and satisfied with our “less is more” frame of mind that day. Adorned in neutral tones with a hint of colour here and there, the small sitting room stood out from the other spaces within the house, and I couldn’t be happier.

The Dressmakers Dolls

Usually the young dressmaker, could be found in her little shop lost in new orders for dresses that the women of the village wore to special events, but for the last few days business had been slow for the dressmaker. Needing to find something new to help keep her business running, the young dressmaker took up a new hobby; one that had the little girls of the town whispering about. She had figured it would not be to difficult to make her dresses in a smaller size then what she was use to, after all she was already making gowns for newborns. Before she knew it she was making dolls for the all the little girls, who were making requests for dresses for themselves and their dolls (so they could match).

Have You Seen My Glasses?

Having spent many days working long hours and coming home exhausted, only to find herself sinking into a deep slumber upon the couch, she woke on her day off late into the day and ready to enjoy a day of solitude with long lost friends. She savoured the adventurous stories they would share with each other; the tales of far of places, long lost loves, and finding the perfect ending to a hard day. Her friends sat waiting her arrival, listening to the on coming foot falls as she drew closer to the coveted spot near the window with the perfect amount of natural light and cool breeze to fill the small space. Only one problem stood in their way, she could not find her glasses so she could dive into the pages new adventures and old favourites.

Decorating has Begun

decorating-has-begun

Piece by piece, the house began to fill with the seasons spirit. Snowmen adored each room, wall hangings clung to the walls. A tree could be found standing tall and proud on each floor of the little house. Slowly, crates were pulled from the attic and crawl spaces. Each decoration had its’ special place of honor within the house. Slowly the decorating had begun.

Preparing the Gifts

preparing-the-gifts

Quietly she stowed away in the craft room hoping with all her power that no one would come looking for her. Silently she carefully fold the paper around the boxes and stuffed bags with goodies. She invisoned the look at each persons face in a months time as she worked away in secret. Each floorboard creak sent her into panic mode as she hid the evidence only to feel silly afterward and bring the trinkets, toys, and clothing items back out from their hiding place. She wanted everything to be perfect and keeping the secret hidden proved difficult at times.
