" A Perfect Winter Love "




This winter season my heart

is held captive...


  






A simple Farm style holiday...









  This Christmas season 

I have such joy

in my heart for a beautiful new year ahead...








Each time I rescue an unwanted love

 along the road or one that I pulled from the heap

I wonder who missed your true beauty?








Then I realize you were left for me

to find

to love

to adore

as a  precious gift to my soul...








~Wood Star~

made from rescued old wood fence slats

planks 50 inches in length and 4 inches wide

two coats of soft white

80 grit sand paper

jute embellishment from the Dollar Store







Rescued vintage chair missing

her caned back. Painted with Vista Paints

Snowflake Confetti

 distressed with 80 grit sand paper





Linking up with these lovelies
 


Wishing each and every one of my readers

and my fellow bloggers/writers

a very Merry Christmas and

joyous Holiday season.


My love to each of you
XOXO

I'm knee deep in elves, but I wanted to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas before the season slipped away. Visiting here always makes me slow down and breathe for just a moment. Thank you for always providing me with that moment. You do a wonderful job of helping to put peace on my earth. Love you.

Hello sweet friend... your decorations are all so beautiful... I love your wooden star you made... and yes, I too always wonder who once owned my treasures... I listen for their stories always... "whispers from the past" I call them... your petite silver tree is just precious too... wishing you a very Merry Christmas... xoxo Julie Marie

The beauty in your heart prepares you to see beauty on the roadside or in the pile of things others throw away. Your heart is beautifully obvious. As well as are the things you create....

Merry Christmas sweet lady.

So pretty! The chair is a wonderful piece and I really like the fence slat stars. I adore stars ;) Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones as well.

Merry merry Christmas to you too my friend...that chair is a treasure. I think I would tie a big satin bow on the back or hang a wreath in that hole. Your home is always beauty and peace. xo

Kate, the warmth of your words and the soft tones in your pics makes me want to go out and treasure hunt for that obscure, discarded piece that someone else abandoned. God bless your soul for the gifts that you give us. May you and yours have a blessed holiday season; keep up the great work!

Kate,
Such an elegant and peacefully decorated holiday home. The star, oh my that chair, matter of fact everything is beautiful. Just as one would expect after being magically transformed by your talented creative hands.
Merry Christmas,
Vera

Burlap Luxe said...

Beauty is all yours Kate, it all looks so dreamy and pure.
Love the star of course and had a chair come to me with no back and I added the jute mesh and covered it for comfort, but I rather like seeing the beauty of yours sitting in its emptiness :)

All is calm here Kate and all is good and pure.

Lots of holiday love
Blessed are we to know him.

Xoxo
