An early Christmas present...and it's white!!

How lucky am I? One of our sons is a furniture maker and I had mentioned a while ago that I wouldn't mind a new bookshelf for my ever growing collection of magazines! A couple of weeks back he asked if I'd like him to make it for me for Christmas. We worked out the measurements and he dropped it in the other night as he wanted to clear his shed!
And of course I had fun dressing it which included a few Christmas decorations.

I also got the ivory paint can out and sprayed a couple of things. First the Christmas trees and then a couple of brass looking candle holders.

And some closer shots of the bits and pieces in the bookshelf.

I think this will be my last post before Christmas, so hope your Christmas is a happy one.

Love the shadows cast from the candleholders. It's all looking very Christmassy.
