A light dusting of snow began on Saturday night, this is Sunday before noon although Dayle told me it was much whiter when he first walked the dog. But it's still pretty.
Dayle put up the tree on Sunday and hung some wreathes. We used to go get a fresh tree but it would get so dry it made me nervous so now we have a "re-usable" one. :-) I put a few decorations on yesterday and will do a lot more today, plus the boys are coming here on the bus after school and I hope they'll want to help.
I decided we would hang the wreath right over the mirror that I inherited from my friend Sally. I think it looks neat!
I ordered a new cotton tartan plaid tablecloth to use this year. I've always been drawn to the plaid and I'm sure it's due to my Scottish and Irish ancestry. We placed the musical and turning carousel in pride of place and it brings me much joy watching it turn as I can see it from my easy chair in the family room.
I have always designed my own card but this year Dayle bought two boxes of printed cards so I might take a year off of DIY cards. :-)
I was pleased to receive my British Edition of Country Living December Edition.
I flipped through to show you a few of the pretty photos but I am saving it to enjoy after I get some chores done.
I love a home lit from within and all cozy.
I also spent some hooky time over the weekend, I only have one more color - 2 rows - before I begin a repeat. The bottom 4 rows are the beach, 4 rows of ocean, 4 of sunset and 4 of sky blues.
I boxed up the finished blanket to send to my eldest granddaughter in Ohio, Jenna, and she loves it! I figured she might as well enjoy it for the many weeks that it will take me to finish the 2nd one for Paige. :-)
Me and my fur hat.
How did your weekend go? Have a super week ahead!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
