Welcome to Christmas 2016 at Park Ridge.... in early November I set out to give our house a fitting farewell Christmas...days after the tour all of the Christmas prettiness was packed away and some of it sold for our move to our new home.
The closet was the most fun to dress...that great Santa Sack from The Little Details was a huge hit as was the closet itself
This tree skirt from The Little Details makes this tree and I will treasure it always
I shopped the non Christmas parts of Micheals and found the burlap tags and made a garland by tying them to some twine and stampled them with the days of December and wrote Christmas words on black tags that I accented with rose gold paint
A few festive touches for Sophie's room
What an arrangement....
Well there it is a fitting farewell Christmas for our beloved Park Ridge house...its been a crazy time moving after this...we will be gone from here next week...I can not wait to get settled into our new house...I am itching to get this move over with...although its been a really stressful time and things have been going to wrong left and right but I think my luck is going to turn around soon...it has to.
I wanted to also share for my longtime followers that we lost our sweet Dolce a week before this tour...decorating was a great distraction...we decided that Dolce didn't need to suffer another harsh winter and a move as he was deaf and blind and just not in a good condition and was having a very hard time finding his way around and was constantly crying we are guessing from aches and pains...it was devastating to say good bye...so painful but it was the right decision and I feel ok that he is at peace and we loved him to bits as he passed...he had 13 good years and everyone kept telling us they don't normally see Boston Terriers at that age...so that was comforting.
