What a week it's been! Busy, busy with clients, cards got in the mail, decorated the house, outside lights are up and hosted my annual party. I guess I'm making up for lost time since last week I was sick. This weekend there's no stopping as I'm off shopping, having dinner with friends and going to a performance of the Seattle Men's Chorus. Like I said, this month is a wild ride!
My tree. It glows like the mother ship! I have been collecting ornaments for over 20 years, all in silver and glass/crystal. I don't even have half of them on. I got tired. In case you're wondering, it's a real tree.
I decorated my sideboard with simple European trees and a silver bowl of pine cones.
My little village. I've been buying these the day after Christmas the last few years. Love their vintage vibe.
A better photo in the daylight. You can see my mantle and our stockings hung by the chimney with care.
Brown paper packages tied up with string... these are a few of my favorite things! Yes, it's my dogs advent calendar on the family room mantle. I do one every year for them. Each bag has a treat that they get before bedtime. Yep, crazy dog lady here. I got this year's idea from the lovely Annie.
Hers puts mine to shame.
And finally, a glimpse at my outdoor lights.
Happy, Happy Weekend to each and every one of you!
