Horton's Christmas and White Wednesday

Happy White Wednesday, I am so excited to finally have time to join Kathleen at Faded Charm again and all the wonderful white blogs she has lined up for her White Wednesday posts. Please be sure and check out all the other blogs.
This is my second post on Horton's Christmas Open House and as promised I am showing you my space I had on Saturday there. 
As always I love a white Christmas so that is what I mainly do... white.
I made stars again, they are my signature at Christmas. I have been doing them now for 18 years and I really never tire of them, no two have ever been alike, that is what I love about vintage. I also made cones, wreathes and trees along with quite a bit of small ornaments. I will be listing them on my blogshop this week. I hope this will give you some inspiration for the Holidays.

I had mentioned in my earlier post that Donna and her husband were so kind to have me as a guest in their home for this event. They are renovating their home and bit by bit are getting things done. One of the rooms recently done is the guest bedroom. I wanted to show you the luxury I was in while at the Jenkins home. Donna keeps you updated on the renovation progress on her blog 
Everyday Elegance.

She tarped this whole room out of canvas to make it look like a tent, with such detail even down to the leather strapping.

She has butterflies made from old book pages in the netting on the chandelier and around the room

The sheets were like butter and the old soft white quilt was like heaven. She had the Christmas issue of Jeanne d' Arc Living waiting for me on the bed.
Thank you again for such a fabulous weekend, it was so appreciated from the bottom of my heart!

And thank you Kathleen for hosting another White Wednesday.
Many Blessings


  1. This must have been the most popular booth.
    It is so wonderful to look at everything in such detail

  2. Rebecca,

    Do they take reservations? I am so impressed with the tarping technique, and you must have slept so soundly in this room. That is, if you could possibly put the JD issue down. : D

    I'm waiting now for my # 8...WHen they arrive, I am in another world for ran hour or so...

    Your booth looked amazing and I know you did well, who could resist those stars?



  3. Wow! So much beauty in one place. I love everything you have shown.

  11. Buongiorno Rebecca,
    so so beautiful! All my favorite colors. I wanted to ask you if you had an idea....I have been taking a spring mattress a part and I will have a LOT of springs. I am thinking something for Christmas. They look like trees, maybe a glittered star on top? Or hang them on my booth with a crystal at the end? You have so many ideas, let me know if you think of anything. Ciao Rita mammabellarte

  12. Wow girlfriend,
    I don't even know where to begin. I'll start at the bottom. That BED!! And she had 'JUL' on the bed waiting for you? What a hostess! I would have crawled into that little cloud of fluff & never gotten out! The show looks beautiful. Your stars are divine & everything else. Well you know how I feel about you Rebecca, your up there with Ann & a few others. Lisa
