A Year in Review

Well, another year has come and gone. Could this be real? It is amazing to me how the time goes so much faster the older you get.
This is A Year in Review her at Dreamingincolor. There were so many wonderful things that I didn't get a chance to write about here on my blog.

This is the top ten posts that you viewed the most!
A Year in Review of the popular things you read about. 
I do wish I had wrote more about the beautiful things that were created for the store but I realized that having a store that I have opened and operated by myself has turned into something that has occupied most of my time. With that said, I am thrilled to have written some to share with you.

I will start with number 10!!

Holiday Open House

I have been meaning to share some highlights of our Holiday Open House here at Dreamingincolor. You see it was not just any holiday open house, we were also celebrating our first year in business!!
This year was so wonderful! Thanks to everyone that came out and supported us.

Despite many obstacles, like my husband needing emergency surgery, I managed to get everything decorated for the holiday.  This year's, like last year's date, fell on Oaklands Museum Candlelight tour so our hours were 10am-8pm so the touring could extend to our house.

Our main area of the house was decorated elegantly with silver, turquoise, white and red.
The majestic deer adorned with glass beads became the center of attention. Though not for sale, people sure did try to buy them! Our tree had the most adorable vintage skates, mercury, french and turquoise ornaments.

King's Chapel Parade of Homes

 I had the opportunity to tour the King's Chapel Parade of Homes in Arrington, Tennessee last week at an event hosted by Forest Home Media. Several bloggers were invited for a tour and high tea to promote the event.
King's Chapel Parade of Homes is full of gorgeous homes decorated with Christmas charm.
All to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The event starts December 6, 2014- December 21, 2014. Tickets are $12, twelve and under are free. This is an event not to miss.

King's Chapel is a community built with 350 acres of dedicated green space.

I have to admit, I was in heaven. 

There were so many vignettes, holiday ideas, and designer influences all over the beautifully constructed homes by Drees Home Builders, Greg & Rains, Arnold Homes and Tennessee Valley Homes..

Each one had their own designs and personal touches. Each one had something that stood out.
It was sensory overload for this creative soul. You just have to see for yourself. Note: pictures do not do it justice.

So sit back because you are in for a treat. 

This was one of my favorite homes. Layered with fresh greens inside and out. This home was built by Drees Home Builders.
