Hickory Hollow Open House Part 1

Let me begin by saying, I've Only Just Begun!
I still have goodies tucked away in boxes that I need to unwrap. But this is a pretty good start. Doug was so good yesterday to help put up some pictures and mirrors. He absolutely detests hanging stuff. I, on the other hand, LOVE hanging stuff.
~*~
This is just part one, because Bob isn't quite finished with the tile in the kitchen. Guess what? Bob now visits here too! Hi, Bob...leave a comment, pretty please!

So without further adieu...

Welcome to a Hickory Hollow Open House!


Last night, after I had puttered, cleaned and decorated all day, I put on my flannel jammies, settled myself infront of the fire and looked at some of my favorite books. I needed to recharge my decorating batteries!


Hope you enjoyed my little Open House. There is still lots of decorating to do. I will get busy and hopefully be able to share Open House Part 2 soon.
~*~
On Wednesday I will announce the
Celebrating Winter with Hickory Hollow
Giveaway!

Trust me, if you like Susan Branch, you won't want to miss it!

I need to scoot... still in those flannel jammies and Bob the Builder is due any minute now!

I know it is even warmer and friendlier than it looks. You are so very talented and quite industrious! Thanks for sharing!
