Mary my sweet cherub, I LOOOOOVE that tree and the room it's in!!!! I just got done painting my "main rooms" pink and just love it also. The rest will have to wait until after the new year. Too tired to move more furniture around for the painter. Come look and see if you approve, chickee. ;-)

I always enjoy seeing those pics of you & your sister. That one of your backs & looking so adoringly up at the tree is my all time favorite Christmas picture!!

I've been looking for a similar little wooden fence ever since the first time you showed that pic on your "me" page on eBay!

Love LOVE LOVE that white mantel!!

Big TX Hugs,
