Just a peek at our Christmas
Just sharing a few photos of our Christmas decor and doings ... I don't want to neglect this blog completely. I've been able to post every day over at my Christmas kitchen, so if you haven't visited there you may want to. Link is in the sidebar. →
We ended up using both colored and white lights on our tree this year, a make-do situation that worked out okay.
The colander was a fun project I saw on Thelma’s Days. Mine didn't come out as nice as Thelma's, but I'm still pleased with it. I hope to blog about that project tomorrow on my Christmas blog.
My December hutch is below. I've since tweaked it a bit, and it will be tweaked even more for winter, adding glittery houses and taking away the Christmas trees, etc.
Some photos from our daughter Carrie's home on Christmas day are below.
Carrie's hot cocoa bar for this winter
A cookie tray (only slightly depleted) that I brought for Christmas dinner
The dinner table. So beautiful!
And then a sweet little woodland vignette on a kitchen counter. I love this!
And our annual shopping tradition with some of our local grands happened just the Saturday before Christmas this year. Usually we manage it earlier than that.
So, just a peek into our holidays. Hope yours were as nice as ours.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
