Ring Out The Past - Ring In The Future

Last nite was the Second Hand Rose Christmas party - hosted by the hostess with the mostest Rose Darden! It was a wonderful evening full of great food, great company, great wine, lots of laughter, some singing and general silliness! And even tho it was a party - lots and lots and lots of discussion of the upcoming February Grand Re-Opening sale!!!!! It's gonna be a doozy - better get your calendars marked early (February 3-4-5-6) cuz you won't want to miss this one! Brad and Amy are full of ideas and plans to make us look better and make you guys want to come and shop even more! BUT enough of business - wanna join the party??? Come on in and join us!

Our Hostess Rose with her David - more laughs than a barrelful of elves!!!
Brad and Amy Johnson - our New Grand Poobah's - and we all LOVE them already - and you will too!

Just a hint of the goodies that were there last nite - was gonna take some more shots of the foods - but I got busy sampling and then everyone was sampling and well...............gosh, by the time I remembered - the plates were pretty bare!

I've always wanted Christmas dishes - but just haven't found the right set yet - until..............This set Rose had displayed in her kitchen was drop dead gorgeous! Don't know the pattern name or if it is still available, but it is by Spode.
Rose decorates so well - and she kind has a less is more attitude with her Christmas decorating - and yet the house was so festive!
Love the centerpiece - simply elegant!
Very simple mantle - fresh greens and cream colors.
Her sparkly silver and white Christmas tree - so elegant and pretty - and a gorgeous touch of natural with the branches stuck here and there. That is Rose's sister Bonnie lounging by the tree - I think she was waiting for Santa!
Rose has a large dresser of some sort (I hate to even say dresser because it is so grand!) in her living room next to the fireplace. The wine bar was set up there in front of the mirror - the silver and crystal just sparkled! That's Rose and Barb reflected in the mirror!
Rose just painted her bathroom this lovely deep charcoal gray - the room is beautiful - you hardly even remember you are in a bathroom!
A little touch of Christmas on her curtain tie back - just enough don't you think?
My favorite corner - the chunky fat pillars and stand with the big fat chunky clock - it all works together so perfectly!
A corner of the dining room - again simply elegant!
Now down the basement is another story..................her work room/storage/laundry! But she made some space to hang out down there too! Gotta love the used paint brushes hanging from the tree!
and a nice little place to sit down and..................
have a conversation????????????
