Festive Days are Here

Good Morning my lovely blogging friends! Time is going so quickly and the days are so full, 'tis the season they say! We have the white stuff in Vermont and have had it on the ground since Thanksgiving! It is so pretty, but it was a bit too early for me, now we will have winter until April, oh dear, let's not think about that now!  Christmas is coming, I'm all bought, wrapped, decorated and ready for family. I do need to bake and cook, but first a trip to Arizona to visit a son and daughter-in-law who can't make it for the holidays. So off we will go, hopefully to some warmer weather and fun.

Now time for Christmas cheer in "our home"

                                         Christmas bunting up on the Kitchen window

                                                   Advent calendar opened everyday, always a treat

                         New outside Holiday slate for side door, bought at a local Artisan shop

Family room mantel, I love lights, really make things festive

                                                                     A little closer

                                                    Homemade holiday wreath for indoors

                                                    Ominous sky's and weather here in Vermont

                                            "Our Tree" all in its glory and smelling delightful

                                       Mini Norfolk pine tree, it has grown since last year!!!

           Living room mantel, the faithful nutcrackers all in a row, descending of course

                                                       Another lovely hibiscus bloom

 My bunnies all set for Santa and best of friends! Thanks to lovely Mia and Vivienne

Well, my lovelies, that's my story and I'm wishing you all a wonderful holiday season in advance! This is just in case life gets so busy I can't wish you Merry Christmas as it gets closer! I cherish all of you and am so happy I have this blog. It is an honor to have met all of you kind, sweet, creative and caring friends. I would love to meet so many of you and who knows, maybe it could happen someday. One never knows!  In the meantime, enjoy the holidays and be well!


   Mother Nature, confused I think......6 degrees outside, cloudy and a rainbow!  ???  !
