An Update on my Display

 I spent some time at the shop yesterday rearranging and "fluffing."  I was thinking that it had been a while since I'd last posted about my little room at Camas Antiques, so I thought I would give a quick update. 
It is always such an honor when something from my space is chosen for store's front window display!  See my big Doll House on the right!  Moving it out of my space prompted the rearranging and fluffing...but it was in need of some attention anyways! 

Sorry about the glare on the window...I didn't have my good camera with me and this was the best I could do.

This is the view from the entryway of my space.  I've been adding vintage lace here and there as I find it.  Many of the amazingly talented dealers at the shop are papering their walls with different mediums that fit their personal style...such as burlap, old book pages or sheet music.  I just love the look and the idea of covering up the blue pegboard.  I decided that lace fit my style well and I happened to have a lot of scraps by way of stained and tattered vintage tablecloths.  I just love finding a use for something that might have otherwise been trashed!  I'm not finished covering the walls quite yet...still on the lookout for more vintage lace!

Okay, so now that things are refreshed at the store, I can get back to stressing thinking about my Christmas to-do list!  Lot's of fun things...just so many of them to do and so little time!  I am sure you can all relate!  I am getting better at prioritzing my time.  Some of the projects I had hoped to complete this year have already been postponed until next year.  And I am okay with that!  I've decided it's better to reserve some time to enjoy Christmas and reflect on it's true meaning instead of running around trying to do everything and please everyone, all the while exhausting myself and forgetting to focus on celebrating the birth of our Savior (talk about exhausting...that was one long, run-on sentence!)  I hope you will all take time to slow down and truly enjoy yourselves during what so often ends up being a hectic and stressful season.

Thank you for visiting today!  I am linking up with Faded Charm for White Wednesday.  Please follow the link for lots of lovely photos and posts!  Merry Christmas!
