Christmas Open House

Yesterday our downtown stores were open from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. for the annual Christmas Open House.

Everyone at Old Banks Antiques had blinged up their spaces and filled them with Christmas goodies.  Delicious food was served and they even had live Christmas music.

G-Man and I walked around the town square enjoying each other’s company, the festivities and the crisp fall air.  Of course, we did some shopping too!


My booth at Old Bank Antiques

I loved how my bottle brush trees turned out.
I  added Christmas images to sweet vintage linens.

Cute little bottle brush wreaths

These are the Christmas colors that I use at Blue Creek Home

I love twig trees – I painted this one white
Orange and blue for the # 2 College football team in the nation!

The aqua and pink trees look like sugared candy!
I have Candy Lights in pastel colors, too.

This old metal plate was transformed with a vintage image of Old St Nick,
some German glass glitter, and a crackled paint finish
Image from “The Graphics Fairy” –thanks, Karen!

I will be adding more BCH Original Christmas pillows

    I love the color of your trees!
    And, the pillows are to die for!

  3. Rhonda,
    Your booth looks all your bottle brush trees (my favorites are those AUsome orange and blue ones...Mr.CC likes them too). Hope your booth is going well for you...I'm sure you are having a fun time with it. I always love going to Christmas Open Houses...hope to get around to a few of them this year. Looking forward to another great game this week...I sure hope we WIN it early (my heart cant't take these last minute wins) and off to Atlanta we go!!!! Tiger Walk was a lot of fun on Saturday...everybody standing behind Cam...I'm sure this week will be the same. WAR EAGLE!!!

  6. Your booth looks phenomenal!!! I love bottle brush trees..they are my favorite. I love the soft pastel ones the best and would probably pass on the blue and orange ones;>) (not a team fan-don't know them at all) That Santa plate is fabulous too...and one of my favorite graphics of Santa's face. Hugs- Diana

  17. Rhonda,

    I too love what you did with the Santa print from Graphic Fairy. It looks like an old family heirloom. I spied a pair of angel wings on a chair. If they are still available, I would like to purchase. EMAIL ME!
