Merry Christmas

 I cut some holly from the garden today.

And arranged it around my favorite rooster and set it on the kitchen island.

I got out the Christmas tree napkin rings and my red napkins.

Set the table with my large Dollar Tree plates and small GW Christmas plates.

I  put some of the holly in a pitcher on the kitchen counter beside our little clock that chimes a different Christmas carol every hour.

I turned out the lights and the little candle in the cardinal makes a golden glow in the kitchen.
There is still lots to do and I'm not ready for Christmas, so I 'm going to take a little blog break.

Merry Christmas dear friends.

  4. Awww, how perfect is all of that? Aww. Wow.

    You know, I'm in awe of you.

    Please do NOT see what my last post was. Really. Not. Okay, okay- if "Carolers from Da Hood" don't make you stay away, nothing will.

    (Merry Christmas to one of my favorite blogs.)

    Sorry about the unwelcome visitor. I think that has been happening quite a bit lately.

    Happy Holidays, dear friend.

  16. Merry Christmas Rhondi! Have a blessed time with your family!

  17. The holly is lovely! It inspires me to plant a few bushes around here next year but I have to find a species that can survive our cold!

    Merry Christmas,
