This afternoon I put together some boxes of oh so good peanut brittle to take to our neighbor's. Let's just hope no one breaks a tooth. Law suits are such a nuisance this time of year. It tastes good, I swear and I even have a cute little bunny stamped on each tag. Rabbit Run Cottage and all....get it? Oh...I figured you did. Sorry. Um...need to have the kids deliver these tonight. I mean gee. It is too cold for ME to be out there isn't it?
The deer head needs something all purty don't you think? A red ribbon perhaps?
Okay...OKAY! I got the hint from some of you! I am waaay behind in posting our Christmas decorations. Well, I was late in getting it all done you know! Hmpf...so here is just a taste of what is here. Not that anything I do decor wise has taste. My rooms are not as elegant and beautiful as some of yours but heck. *I* myself am not as elegant and beautiful as some of you either. (I HEARD that! So I am not elegant and beautiful at all! Can we move on now?) So, for what it is worth, the cottage feels cheery and cozy and all Christmassy. Hmm? Why yes, that IS a word! I like that word. So there. I don't care what this lousy spellcheck says!Christmassy...Christmassy...Christmassy! A little here... ...a little there... ...a little over on that side... ...and some more on this side... This is our New York City ornament in a place of honor...you all know how I like that little town just a teensy bit. Teensy. Bit.
Top 'o the hutch...snow people and that way cool banner made by blog world's own Becky!
Bottom 'o the hutch with stockings made for us by Bill's late Mom. There is another hanging on the china cabinet. She finished Grace's just before she became ill so it is a real treasure.
Foyer...foy-a...foy-eh? Foy-er? Nah. We t'ain't that formal. It's the too small, crowded place where you come in from the cold and tramp snow all over the floor. Please forgive any cat toy mice you see on the floor. Henry is just awful at photo styling. He was fired after this assignment.
Don't worry. I offered him a stellar severance package.
Oh, and yes. I DO wish that hardwood ran under that study and into the dining room. My husband was too frugal (A fancy word for cheap!) to do it then. He said we would do it later. I am not holding my breath. I did but I passed out and started breathing again but that is a whole 'nother story.
See my little penguin? I LOVE my little penguin. He is holding a sign that says "Let It Snow". Every proper home needs a penguin holding a sign don'tcha know. Ms. Martha S. herself has a penguin holding a sign in her house. Okay, I made that part up but she SHOULD!
More later but I need to run and finish painting the Diva's room! Dark, hot pink does not go on easly and smoothly! But it will be so divalicious when it is finished!
Love to each one of you...I hope your week is going well. Each one of you is in my heart!
Love and Hugs,
