Charmed Farm House Tour.

I had a lovely invitation from a customer to come and see her Christmas decor. The main part of her charming home was built in the 1800s. With serveral additions. It was charming. 
She said she and her husband took a class and made this twig love seat together in a day. 

I thought her kitchen was charming too. 

The funnel tree is charming. 
Her husband builds shops in a bottle ....

Here is a completed shipje made previously!!

It was such a treat to see her amazing spaces!!

Book Club Christmas Luncheon

One of my favorite traditions at Christmastime is my Book Club's Christmas Luncheon.
We have been having this luncheon for 13 years, and I always get to host.  I guess that is a blessing I get because I LOVE to host.  Of course the ladies all help with the meal, and its usually based on the book that we read for December.  

We chose our menu this year from the menu in the dining car on board the California Zephyr, since we read David Baldacci's  The Christmas Train. 

I set the table with my Christmas dishes ...

Book Club friends brought the food ...

And we had a lovely party.  We discussed the book, which I had recommended, and about half of us liked it as much as I had ... then we moved to the parlor where we exchanged favorite books, using the 'white elephant exchange' method.  It was a lovely afternoon, and I am so grateful for these amazing ladies, and am so proud to call them friends, my literary friends.

Merry Christmas Dear Lizzie!

I had a chance to pick up a couple of things at Dear Lizzie today and thought  I'd share a few pics of their Christmas decor!

I'm sure my friend Stacy would love this.
Of course I'm always up for a black  and white color scheme.

This is such a charming store. It's found in Highland, Utah, and has been featured in several magazines.
