Looking Back

Don't we all like to look back every now and then? I know I do!! Since Rhoda is having a Christmas party today, I just had to join her for some holiday fun. I didn't want to reveal my 2010 decor, so what's a gal to do? Well this gal decided to take a look back to 2009...wow...things sure do change a whole bunch in just 12 months...so take a look and you will know what I mean. My dining room has had a makeover and my photo skills have really improved since last year. Take a look and then be sure to come back on the 9th for the reveal of my 2010 decor at my CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE!



                                    WELCOME and Season's Greetings from Coastal Charm!


                                           I'm having lots of FUN with rub-ons...instant charm!


  



                                                  One of my favorites...a vintage ornament
                                                               that came from my MIL.
                                   

                                                              Dining room decor!


                                                            My little $2.50 Target tree!
                                                



                                         Thanks for looking back to 2009 with me...hoping
                                                              to see you here again,
                                                                         Linda

Everything is beautiful, Linda!! I love the little white tree surrounded by starfish. If I were at the lake during the holidays, I'd love to do something like that. Great idea to show last year for the party...I didn't think of that and I'm sure not ready now!

XO,
Jane

Pretty! I love starfish & like to use them at Christmas, too. I like all the candy & balls in jars. And the all the silvery stuff.
I'm hoping I can finish something in time for your link party. I've never done one before.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hi, Linda, all of your 2009 stuff was really cute, so I can't wait to see this year's. I'll try to come over & link up to your party too, there's going to be a lot of parties this year. Merry Christmas!

Linda- I really like the white tree from Tar-jay in the champagne bucket, surrounded by the starfish! Adorable. It's always fun to see the "old" stuff- how soon we forget! Looking forward to seeing your "new" at the party.....

Well I think 2009 was very pretty and I can't wait to see 2010! It is amazing how we change, grow and improve as we travel this blogging road. We have so many wonderful teachers around here!

Mary said...

Everything in 2009 was beautiful! I love that Target tree, I am on the hunt for one similar to that for my bar area!

Beautiful Christmas decor! I especially love the last photo of the candles.

Linda,

The starfish and white candles (with beans) are so beautiful! Amazing how nature does it :) Love all your pops of white and silver. I have a thing for starfish and sand dollars. I put a bunch of them in a shadow box so I can remember our beachy visits.

Look forward to your new Christmas dining room and the Open house!

xx,
Michelle

Hi Linda! Thanks so much for linking up to the party this week! I absolutely love looking back with you because I wasn't a blogger back then so it is all new to me and just gorgeous! I love your dining room and covet your buffet table! I'm going a little less colorful in my dining room too this year and I like how calm it feels. Thanks again for sharing this with us!

I remember some of your decorations from last year. Everything looked beautiful.

I am going with sooo much less decorations this year. I just LOVE it, too. Usually, I have so much out, I am tired of it all before Christmas Eve. :)

Just to say, too, that I finally got my orders out to CSN with the gift code I won from you.
I was slow on it but got it ordered last night. It will be awhile before I get it all...ordered 3 things with the generous code and they will all come from different warehouses. You can bet that I will blog about it when it all gets here. :)) Thanks again, so much, for giving me the chance to win.

Happy weekend, bj

Linda I'm so glad I found your blog.

I'm excited to read everything.

Very pretty! Love the idea of using your 2009 pics until your 2010 reveal! I used to live in TN and miss the Magnolia leaves to decorate with.
