…it’s probably going to stay up a bit past the holidays!
; D (gotta get my money’s worth!)
Suffice it to say that, all ornamentation this year was done with a very simplistic (but elegant) touch.
Of course~beginning with images of my hydrangea-splashed tree!
There just doesn’t seem to be a good way to get a good shot of this window header, and how I wish you could actually see it ~it is so simplistically pretty!
Again, “simple” was the theme….
(Okay–maybe it’s a little heavy-handed over the curio)
Just little touches in the kitchen cabinets, over the fridge, beside the stove…
…even from the driveway door heading down to the lower level…
I had the fun of playing with some of my silver collection! ; D
One last thing to share~
I taunt family each year with a NAUGHTY & NICE list.
I write out the initial list and then have mAny debaters coming at me. The list gets re-written mANy times throughout Christmas day, but this year I decided to write only the headers of NAUGHTY & NICE–period.
As family arrived~ first looking for their stockings and then checking “the list,” I heard a lot of “HuH?”
Then they joyfully filled out the lists for themselves–of course you know where their very own names landed!
I heard one child get scolded for putting Grandma on the Naughty list~ “You NeVeR put Grandma on the NauGHTY list, are you crazy?!”
My 2nd brother didn’t like where he kept landing so added the “Everything is the opposite” disclaimer. I also see that a lot of names are just missing–perhaps the verdict is still out–?
