Hello everyone! Only two more days till Christmas! When my in-laws came to visit us for the holidays, we visited the Castello di Amarosa near Calistoga, which is a gorgeous Castle made out of bricks and parts from different ancient castles from around the world. It was spectacular!! I felt as if I was in Tuscany and, the wine was out of this world! I wanted to show you some inspiring pictures from our day there!
The ceilings in the main dining room are stunning and look like old fresco paintings. I also am in love with the beams and chandeliers. If I had a chandelier I would have it dripping with greenery too! Hopefully my home in Germany will have a chandelier so I can do this next Christmas!
This is the beautiful courtyard.
My wonderful husband and in-laws on the draw bridge. So good to see them all together for the first time after his deployment!
This dragon is from an ancient castle and used to spew tar on enemies when the castle was being attacked.
The gardens were so pretty and the animals were adorable!
Thanks for checking out our little day trip! I also wanted to show you a headboard my husband and I are working on for a client.
These are old mismatched closet doors from a thrift shop that we split apart and painted an antique white. We distressed them, added stain to the scratched areas, and reassembled them with hinges to create a better looking arrangement. Now they look like really old shutters off of an old colonial home and will make a gorgeous headboard for less than $75! We can't wait to show you what they look like in the finished room!
Have a fabulous Christmas Eve Eve!
