Wonderful Cherubs!

 These wonderful cherubs remind me of my little cherubs this Christmas. I was was blessed with  little grandchildren this past year. We now have George who is 7 months old and Madison who is 9 months old. They have completed my life! Christmas was such a joy having them with us, they laughed and giggled while opening their presents... you should have seen the smiles they put on our faces but the smile they put on my children's, their parents was priceless. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with their families as we did. My next post will be the wonderful presents I am planning for my giveaway!! I cannot wait....until then have a happy and healthy NEW YEAR!!!

A Little More Inspiration For My New Home Decor!

 As you all know by now I love cherubs. I am in the process of re-decorating my home so I wanted to share a few inspiration rooms and ideas I would like to incorporate in my redesign. First I would like to add lots and lots of cherubs, white of course.
 I love, love this dining room however I my plan is a room with a bit more shab than chic. I do plan on adding a chandelier like the one above and I just love the window treatments, perhaps I will doing something like this in my bedroom as I already made white silk dupeoni drapes for my dining room.
At some point I would like to add a conservatory off my kitchen. The plan is to do it all white with just a hint of green with old statuary such as this cherub. I was thinking of finding a cherub water fall to put in the center of the room then adding these beautiful vintage iron chairs and a chaise that I purchased from a man who brought them back from Paris, I will take some picture and add them to my next post. I am always open to suggestions. I picture in my mind lots of ivy and the old statuary covered in green moss like the cherub above, what do you think so far?

Wishing Everyone A Merry Christmas!

 Victoria May 2003 Had this wonderful bedroom! As you all know I am in the process of redecorating my home and finding beautiful pictures on the Internet for inspiration. I found this room and fell in love with it! I just love the calmness of the color white. Isn't the window treatments gorgeous?
 I just love cherubs, as I am sure you all know by the name of my blog. I have some wonderful art in my house of vintage cherubs, after the holidays I will post them to share with everyone. I have been collecting vintage cherubs for years. Are there any other bloggers that love cherubs and angels? I'm sure there are. If anyone has pictures they would like to share I would love to see them.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I cannot wait for Christmas its my favorite holiday! What is your favorite holiday?

Dream Dining Room

Ok, so I found this beautiful dining room and said to myself, I MUST have it! I'm not sure where I got the picture as I have had it for a few weeks now prior to getting a blog. If anyone knows where it came from please let me know so I can give them the credit they deserve for this wonderful room.

I'm in the process of paining my dining room white then adding a wonderful white farm house table, beautiful white chairs and a to die for china cabinet. I also have a gorgeous needlepoint rug that would go great with the room I just hope its not too big to fit in the room. Wait until you see the chandelier I'm hanging!! It should be all finished by next week. Can't wait to post pictures for all the bloggers to see... until then I hope everyone is having a wonderful week~

Fall in Georgia

Happy Saturday! It's a beautiful day here in Athens, Georgia! Wherever you may be I hope you are enjoying your day as well! My sweetheart husband woke up early this morning and took these pictures in our backyard, aren't they just beautiful? This is my favorite time of year, I'm sure going to miss being outside in just a few weeks. I love garden statues, planters, and garden benches, how about you?
The day after Thanksgiving the Christmas tree goes up...I cannot wait, I just love how warm and romantic the house looks with all  the twinkling lights and candles burning both in the house and in the windows. I think I'm going to put up 2 trees this year 1 formal in Burgundy and greens and of course the white tree with all the wonderful pink ornaments. I will post some pics just as I get the house done, I'm really looking forward to seeing all the wonderful blog pictures of your homes decorated for the holidays!
