{christmas time in the city}




. . . late, late november and soon it will be time for pretty bed linens in cozy guest bedrooms, warm slants of sunlight and extra blankets, and best of all, tables set with gold-rimmed glasses for elegantly festive dinner parties . . .{this is glamorous}

{p.s.} holiday decorating ideas:
* freshly chopped wood
* artful arrangements
* mahogany & gold

Isn't that wallpapering exquisite? Oh how beautiful with the patch of golden light. I wonder if it is flocked? What a lovely post to begin the holiday season.
All the best from the country mouse to the gorgeous, glamorous city...

i want wallpaper so badly, for just even one part of my home, but we rent...it's too expensive to justify.
