CHRISTMAS POSTS


 

I'm anything but TRADITIONAL when it comes to CHRISTMAS TREES. . .For years Fred (the ficus) was decorated with lights and tiny baskets, red bows and small glass balls. . .I think Santa got a little confused for several years. . .not sure where to put the packages. . .but it all worked out. . .This year, in keeping with my unconventional sense of humor, I chose something fairly unorthodox. . .a COTTON TREE. . .



I have a man in my FARMHOUSE KITCHEN. . .Yep. . .Kris arrived last week and set up housekeeping among the VINTAGE CROCKS. . .A very good place for him. . .He's VINTAGE, too, you know. . .(Santa Wink). . .



The PACKAGES are wrapped. . .and ready. . .In WHITE and BLACK and SILVER and GOLD, they are as unconventional as the TABLETOP TREE of left-over Cotton limbs I made for the smaller gifts. . .



I decided to take action and bring out some black and white for the kitchen. . .set up a little Christmas cheer. . .and reminder. . .before Thanksgiving. . .When he asks, "Why are you decorating for Christmas when it's Thanksgiving? And why all the black?' then I can reply, "Because Friday is BLACK FRIDAY!". . .You get my drift, don't you Ladies?



 
The theme for the entire house was natural objects, brown paper wrappings,
evergreens, red birds, lots of white and bright. . .




 I've been hearing this grand old Christmas Carol in my head for days now. . .

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains



 
 
 
This was my all time favorite table setting
and a hit with our guests. . .
They couldn't believe I put a bucket and boots on the table. . .
 
 
 
 
My love of geraniums inspired this post. . .
 
 
 
 
 
 
Another of my favorites because it was something I did special for us. . .
an evening by firelight, spiced bread and hot cider, candlelight, plump pillows, 
soft throws. . .Christmas music in the background. . .
We decided to make this a  yearly tradition. . .
 
 
 
 
 HOLIDAY CHRISTMAS IN BED
 
A Christmas treat for my Honey. . .
It includes a recipe link for my original recipe for Moon Pie Bread Pudding. . .
  



 
I made some pretty unusual choices to decorate the cupboards. . .
but it's been my favorite. . .




Another table setting that was a hit. . .all white and gold, crystal and china, memories and fun. . .


MORE TO COME. . .LATER. . .
