Dame Courtney's Townhome
Now isn't that a beautiful scene? That should put you in a Christmas mood. The townhouse above belongs to the Capital Street Duo I have talked about before, and are very good friends of the Mistress for years and years, and years. But most of the decorating you see is done by the Dame Courtney, who is one half of the Capital Street Duo. Courtney and the Mistress go back years when we were single, sexy vixens, always looking for the next best dress, and a man for our arm....among others things!!! Now that we are sort of domesticated vixens and ladies of leisure with our boy-toys, we like to take a interest in keeping a well decorated home, planning cock-a-tails parties and doing our dilettante jobs. Courtney is a very talented floral designer and can she ever put together one hell of a dramatic arrangement. And can she decorate! She is a collector of many things, besides boys! I think she is missing her calling and should be doing windows for department stores. Dame Courtney's place for Christmas is like living in a Bergdorf Goodman window. I always enjoy seeing what she does for the holidays, but ex specially Christmas. And she goes all out, and has even won awards for her talents in some of Harrisburg's Candlelight Tours. And her place is like home away from home. They put the Mistress's slightly tipsy vessel up on weekends when she passes out....I mean , when I start to get my beauty rest! Anywho, she sent me photos of the outside of her home over the weekend and I was in awe, so I asked her if I could share her home with all of ya! What a treat. The first picture is of her Victorian living room with her gorgeous tree!
Here is a view from the bar area. As you can see she is fond of collecting Victorian shoes. And yes, that is a small sled hanging from the ceiling.
This picture is of a antique fairy angel she picked up on one of her many trips to the antiques markets.
A close up of the detail of her hours of work on a beautiful mantle display with another fairy angel. I love the mix of mirrors behind and notice the pearls hanging on the clock. I love clocks.
The bar area where Dame Courtney's boy-toy usually mixes the Mistress's poison for the night. I'm not sure what the blue liquid in the apothecary jar is, but I'll try it. And yes, that is a taxidermy peacock,stuffed with arsenic, if I'm correct,which is one of two in there next to the bar. Another thing Courtney and the Mistress have in common.
A antique life size sleigh in the living room filled with I'm guessing all the gifts for the Mistress. I hope there is a fur chubby in one of them!
A beautiful side board decorated for the holiday.
And this isn't really a Christmas theme, but she love herself some funeral collector items such as grave candles, embalming fluid bottles and a funeral parking space sign!
So, I can really appreciate all she does in decorating her home. It takes her weeks till she is finally complete. I'll being seeing her soon as I'll be possibly going to her Christmas soiree for some cock-a-tails and cheer. I can always work another party in there somewhere. Courtney ,just get the bed ready tootes! Tootles.
