Sorry for the recent lack of posts, I turned the big 4-0 this week and my husband took me to Chicago to cheer me up, um I mean celebrate. :) Actually, we've really been having a fabulous time! I need to do a post when I return with all of my Chicago musts. This is such a great city! I have a good friend with Chicago connectections who has given me all of the inside scoop on the best Chicago has to offer. She has been spot on in her suggestions!
Today I wanted to share my front room with my readers before it undergoes a major transformation. Throughout the next couple of months everything on the shelves gets put in storage as I start decorating for the holidays. The shelves in this room are customized specifically to showcase my Department 56 village collection. It is currently hiding in the cupboards below and I'm just itching to get it all out and set up. It is one of my favorite hobbies. I can't wait to share all of the details
