The key to great presents... having a designer daughter to know what you want for the house!  Thanks Bethany!

She gave me a Moravian Star pendant light! (and a Mongolian fur pillow!)

And some beautiful linen napkins from the OKL "Martyn and Mary Collection" (showcased in November):

 Bethany got a print from one of her favorite artists, Clare Elsaesser from TastesOrangey (and some Nate Berkus sheets, some Etsy jewelry...)

Oh, and my hubby made me new solid birch cabinets for a future project!

My artist son gave me tons of art supplies, which I LOVE!!!! I started creating and am having the most fun...

I also got my order for this Spoonflower fabric. The print is Escher Pagoda Trendy Tangerine by Kerry Steele. I just got it on the basic combed cotton and it is more fabulous in person than online!! So excited to do something with it, and I'm so thrilled for our friend Kerry, from Design du Monde, who is creating the most awesome fabrics.

I hope you got some lovely things and are having a wonderful holiday! Any New Year plans? We make a nice meal, open the bubbly and stay home..that's what old folks do around here. 
Enjoy the rest of the holiday!

  4. Can I adopt your daughter ? Lucky you :) love the painting. Happy new year!

  5. I covet your Star! Beautiful print for Bethany. Kerry is so talented. It seems ashamed to make a single cut to her gorgeous fabric. Happy New Year! (Ditto on how we will be spending the night.)
