This year I will be offering holiday decorating services through Lucky 7 Design.   I have decorated the homes of family and friends in the past and decided it would be fun.   Like I've mentioned before my background in retail, particularly in merchandising is something I just can't let go of and love with a passion.

Christmas trees are a favorite of mine, during my employment with Lowe's Home Improvement the holiday trees I decorated were actually featured in one of the holiday commercials filmed at our store.  The set design crew liked them so much they decided to use them.

These services will be available in New Jersey, mostly in Central NJ.   For more information including pricing please contact me at lucky7design@yahoo.com



Well my wonderful husband pulled all my christmas tubs out of the garage (i think the total was about 22) and on Friday I packed away Thanksgiving and welcomed my favorite holiday CHRISTMAS!

Im very busy with trying to get the holiday line up this week but I did snap some shots of what I started but of course will probably add to, tweak or just completely change. lol

My Victorian Village in the Dining Room...a little nervous this will be 1st year is in reach of little hands.

We have such a large family that we hang our stocking over the LR archway..and those are just for the children in the house.  Always buy an extra stocking, you never know when you will have another baby. lol

The top of the fireplace...this still needs work.   I didnt purchase anything new this year....working with what I already have.   I got those pictures at Bed Bath & Beyond on 75% off clearance 2 yrs ago in Spring. 

This is my prized possession for Christmas...it was hand made by my grandfather Salvatore.   The pieces are from Italy (some are chipped but its makes them more precious to me).   I have to go grab some of the fall hay before the trash gets collected....and place some inside

The kitchen hutch which I didnt have last year.  Its holding my collection of Christmas teapots as well and holiday plates.   This hutch has been a blessing, so glad i refinished it and kept it.

Well this is kinda my first post since my long break.    Ive started working on my holiday line for Lucky 7 Design and just trying to decide what I want to do with my stocking this year.   In the old house they went down the staircase, last year over the archway from living room to diningroom.  But this year we have an extra stocking to hang baby Kemorah's for a total of 7 (lol)    I also have a mantel to hang from this year, thanks to my husband and Craigslist.  

Below is the mantle from Sept/Oct

Well I had to take some time off to handle some family business.   I also decided to switch my internet provider which made the break a little longer than expected.   I dont have a themed post for today other than Im back and found out that Im a little more addicted to the internet then I thought.  But also learned all the great things you can do when your not in front of a laptop all day.

Enjoy your weekend !!!!!
