Wrapping Things (and Presents) Up!

2012 is winding down, but it doesn't feel like things have slowed as I get ready to take a break for the Christmas and New Year's holidays. I've mentioned how crazy that stretch of 6 days are before, but it basically consists of Christmas Eve at my house, Christmas day at my parents, another Christmas with my Husband's family who lives out of town and yet another when my dad comes in to town. Then throw in my sister's and my twin nephews' birthdays (who turn 18 this year -- I'm getting very old somehow...) and the week is not a vacation in the most traditional sense.

As I sign off and wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, here is what has been going on since my last post:

Upholstery approvals -- this one is in an awesome heavy weave indoor/outdoor fabric (but you'd never know it was tough from the looks of it up close)

 Building houses and enjoying the views during meetings. 

Taking a few minutes to enjoy some lit Glassy Babies on my desk, even if proper votives weren't handy.  

Dogs walking on my coffee table looking for food scraps (someone please give me some sanity).  

Chair score! Set of 4 waiting for a new color and new seat. 

 Kicking off projects...

Wrapping gifts for the holidays... I got the clients done, but my family, not so much...

Dropped off these pillows to a client yesterday, just in time for Christmas.

Flower arranging, then taking a pic in a moving car, in the dark (Hydrangeas, garden roses, green berries).

Fabric arrivals for a very special wing chair in a master bedroom. He gets leather, she gets turquoise prettiness. 

 Fabrics in play for a living room. Not sure who's made the team yet. 

Genius! Silver walnuts! Stealing this for next year. 

Spraying an antique faux bamboo dresser. Hands are speckled black and hair has an interesting texture...

Hoping to settle in for a long winter's nap next week. Best wishes to all and peace on earth, please.
