December 1

Photo by Rudy Day News
As I've done sometimes in past years, I am planning to post each day in December, in both blogs if I can manage it.  We'll see!  Today I want  to share about a fun giveaway at Rudy Day News.  It is only open through today, so if you are interested, head on over!

Mary at Rudy Day News has been going through her collection of Christmas books and magazines.  I have a stash of those myself, but I don't have duplicates.  Mary found a few duplicates in her collection, so she is giving away 2 magazines full of Christmas inspiration and recipes to one fortunate winner.  The other winner is going to receive a book, The Farm Chicks' Christmas, which looks absolutely fantastic.

Here's the link for the giveaway:  Christmas book and magazine giveaway.  Hurry on over and leave a comment for a chance to win!

In other news, it's been snowing lightly all morning here.   Perfect for December 1!

Mr. T just helped me replace the white lights in our lighted evergreen garland which stays over our picture window year round.  I change the embellishments seasonally, so it was time for the leaves and the fall flower lights to come down, and the string of lights has needed replacing for several months.

I just dusted the hutch and am putting a few Christmasy items on the shelves, though most of the Christmas decor will wait until we get the Christmas ornaments out of the attic.  I got out my Christmas ribbon board but have not added the cards to it yet.  Later today I will do that.  I still have a few fall items to put away, and need to change my dining room table over from fall to Christmas today.  What fun to begin my Christmas decorating on a snowy day!

And Mr. T has decided he wants to put colored lights on a small evergreen outdoors.  We are getting in the Christmas spirit around here for sure!


  1. I love posting daily in December, but it's been a few years since I've been able to do it. Looking forward to your posts each day!

  2. Thanks, Susan! I'll look forward to your visits! I think I really need to go back and see what I posted last year so I don't have a lot of duplication, but we'll see! I'm sort of winging it here. I'm sure it will be fun, though.


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
