Christmas 2009, Happy Holiday with a HO HO HO!

I'm so frustrated with blogger I could scream! I have been trying to share my Christmas
with you for days now. The formatting has changed and is extremely difficult to line up!
Even so I had an amazing Christmas. A luncheon with my brother Christmas eve, Christmas dinner which you see here at with Gypsy goddess and her family, while the kids went to the inlaws.


This is my mantle, the  acrylic of houses done months ago....
 will SOON be replaced, by a large scale canvas.

Our Living room tree holds  my special decorations collected over the years, the  family room tree purchased this year, never used at a garage sale, holds all the fun ornaments, many from Peppers childhood!
I cheated by altering  the fireplace with photo shop, I  replaced the  out dated brass slats which will be sprayed black after the holiday, also altered the marble tile which is slated for the new year! The rest is the new funky benjamine moore gypsy pink that was democratically choosen!!! Not for everyone, but a relished change  for  this household of artists!
The wall units against the far wall, plus two in the dining room took months to complete....each piece needed to be sanded, primed,  then coated two or three times with self leveling enamel. There were 35 individual pieces (shelves, drawers, doors), along with five upright large pieces that were done not to mention a large table. A sheet of plastic spread over the whole living room harbored the wet painted  pieces. This was my lovely Christmas present, having the whole thing back together in time to celebrate! We are all shocked that it actually happened. Unfortunately the expresso hardwood floor was not  done as predicted because of a glitch in the store, but is on order!
