Home for the Holidays

img_4806There you have it….my news.  But don’t let me lose you just yet! While Burlap & Lace has decided to go “home for the holidays”, that statement has more than one meaning.

If you read my previous blog, you know I have been in prayer over this decision…and it’s one that I promise has not been decided lightly.  But due to numerous reasons, I am bringing Burlap & Lace home….for a season.  Yes, I am leaving the Tin Roof…for a season.

While in our natural world, seasons take on the form of several months (3 to be exact), I cannot promise that my season will  be the same.  BUT…PLEASE stay tuned with me on my blog in the months ahead…my season of homecoming.  Because….I plan to stay connected to the Tin Roof to let you know what is happening there while at the same time giving you an inside look into my own home renovations soon to be in the works!  And when/if the time is right, I will be back in full swing.  And YOU will be the first to know when that is happening!

So let’s get back to the Tin and see what’s in store for you there!

If you’ve gone into any retail space of late, you have noticed that Christmas is all around us…at least in the decorating sense.  So since it’s my last month at the Tin (last day there will be November 30), I have decided to join the ranks and get us started on our Christmas spirit!  In fact, Thanksgiving is typically our family’s time to decorate, so let’s get started!

img_4805Let’s celebrate a Farmhouse homecoming this Christmas, starting with the great door featured here.  With the chippy table in front and the fabulous lighted wreath above, what a great place to welcome your guests into your home.

The pineapple is a symbol of hospitality, so in keeping with what Scripture tells us in Hebrews 13:2, “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”  Why not grace your entertainment area with these lovely lamps? Only $40 each!

img_4802You will find plenty of holiday dishware here this month, as well as the storage space to house those plates, plate chargers, cookbooks and serving pieces!  The braided wreathes are lovely gracing a table when overlapping three together, or they are unique enough to hang on a wall or door for eye appeal.  Cake plates await the holiday baking you will be doing…and don’t forget to peek beneath the glittery Christmas ornaments to find the silver-plated dishes beneath…the perfect dish for holiday candy!    Why not let these crocheted linens double as curtains after the season is done?

img_4803This round table with the scalloped edges disassembles into three pieces for ease in moving and/or storage.  It makes a lovely cake table for a wedding, or cover it with a round cloth for a bedroom where it can easily be nestled between two chairs.  Also a great table for seating up to 4 in a small area!  It can conveniently be taken apart after the dinner party and stored in a closet space, but you won’t want to do that…it’s too pretty not to leave out!

There are three trees for sale…all with lights already attached…$25 each.  Great for a table or kitchen counter!

Cookbooks are scattered about for only $.25 each!  Fabulous recipes…go ahead and take a peek inside one or two!   These would make great stocking stuffers.

The leather stool is a must for kicking up your feet during Superbowl night….ridiculously priced to go.

img_4800Stemware is now all priced to sell at $1/stem.  Get your holiday glasses while they last!

This door panel hanger has 7 hooks…perfect for those winter scarves, mittens and hats!  And speaking of hats….these baby caps were handmade by my daughter-in-law.  Great baby gifts and stocking stuffers for the newborn!

img_4813Tables grace the booth space this month…from farmhouse style to coffee table to side tables.  Take your pick!  And while you are looking, check out the napkins – only $3 each! – and napkin rings to match. This lovely Christmas cloth is less than $20! Square red and green plates make a wonderful holiday place setting for a family of 4, or wonderful to hold those holiday baked goods when guests come to visit!

img_4809This trunk would be perfect as a side table, or in a bedroom to hold toys, blankets or simply to hide your Christmas gifts until they are wrapped!  The garlands are less than $5….seriously?!?  Seriously!

img_4808Mercury lamps,  rustic lamps, coffee pots….There is simply more than I can tell you about in the space this month.  I hope you will stop by and enjoy Burlap & Lace in my last month at the Tin.  There is so much to celebrate going forward.  Remember that this is not goodbye…just simply a season of change.  I pray you will enjoy this journey with me through the eyes of my blog in the months ahead. And don’t forget to visit the Tin Roof often.  So many vendors with so many great things to explore! Thanks for the love…
