It's December 3,
and the imposing holiday rush
can be felt here! Are you feeling it too?
Cannot seem to get my act together
just yet for some reason.
(Okay, there IS a reason.)
This year my decorating will be a little bittersweet
as memories of Christmases past
will flood my mind and heart.
You see we plan to
put this big old Polohouse
on the market in January,
so this will most likely be
our last holiday season here.
We have been here nearly 14 years and
as empty nesters, we are feeling
that it's time to pass the torch
and share this wonderful old historic home
with another family.
It is such a great house and needs to be filled
with little voices and running feet,
barking pups and frisky kitties.
Truly a fantastic home, neighborhood, and town to raise a family.
It has been such a passion and a blessing
to own and decorate and LOVE
this old polo barn house.
I love every quirky inch of this home.
It has become such a part of me
and my entire family for that matter.
It's just THAT kind of house -- it hugs you
each time you walk in the door,
super cozy and comfortable.
It leaves a lasting impression on your heart.
Not many houses affect people like this one.
It is special!
So I thought I would share my holiday decor
once again as I get my act together here.
It will be slow going but will pick up after next weekend.
Jenn, my antique business partner and I
take part in a 3 day holiday boutique.
We fill it with collected holiday inventory for sale
-- car loads of antiques and vintage pieces.
If you are in the Chicagoland area next week,

So stay tuned for new photos to come.
And let me know if you want to buy this house!
Would love to have it go to a blogging friend.
