I'm obsessed with them.
And gosh this is a pretty display. And an especially nice example of this type of buffet, too.
When I bought my 1931 storybook cottage, one of the first things I knew I must have
was a jacobean style 1920's or 30's buffet.
I'd seen a few painted white like that example above.
I think all their moldings and carvings look like scrumptious icing on a fancy wedding cake.
They look equally as good in turquoise. This combo above is a stunner.
This one looks like it belongs at the beach.
I love the bulbous legs and scallops.
more yummy turquoise
A worn paint effect looks good on these also.
Even in a bold yellow these beauties shine.
Hello Sunshine! You make me happy.
Very flattering in gray too.
Quite elegant painted gray with white trim.
Now this one...is at least three pieces of furniture put together.
The Frankenstein of sideboards.
Quite amazing although I'd be fearful it would all topple on me one day.
This shabby one is all done up for the holidays...which brings me to the point of this post
other than I just love looking at all these.
My own buffet has been patiently waiting to be done up for Christmas.

It's been done up for Easter

spookified for Halloween
and burdened with Thanksgiving's harvest earlier this month.
But it's never been decked out for the Holidays.
Soon it will be though...I'm very excited to see how it all turns out.
I really have no idea what I am putting there...but something will
I'm going through all my boxes of Christmas things just as I know all of you are too
and coming up with something to delight the senses this
I know most linky parties are starting with mantels but I kind of decorate all at once.
Well, no usually the tree first and then scatter all else about.
But I'm going to finish the mantel first this time with it subject to change as the rooms develop.
Today I met a lady that does Christmas as her business 24/7 a year.
She owns a company that decorates for large corporations, malls, big buildings, etc...
She came in the store wearing a Christmas sweater and I commented that she was
in the Christmas spirit and she said...
"I dress like this every day. It's my business."
Which led to a long discussion of exactly what was her business.
Decorating for Christmas is her business.
She says it's exhausting. I can just imagine.
Are you exhausted yet?
