I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
Thank y'all so much for all your sweet comments in wishing my back to be better...they worked!!
We had a house full of family...six adults and 3 little boys. The baby was teething and wanted to be held a lot, which was ok by me. My sweet DIL did all the cooking for Thanksgiving dinner while I watched the kids...not that the 3 1/2 year old needed watching. He so good and doesn't bother anything, so my job was easy.
Son, DIL and grands left early Sunday morning. We had an extended family party to attend that night.
So yesterday morning, I hit the ground running.
It poured rain all day, and we didn't get the wreaths up or any outside decorating done. As a matter of fact, the pumpkins are still by the front steps, but they will be gone today..
On top of all that, we're having a party at our house on Saturday, and I'm running about two days late with my decorating.
Oh, did I say "snow in the kitchen"?
Yep! I wanted to use spray snow on some pine cones, and since it poured rain all day yesterday, it snowed in the kitchen.
I haven't used spray snow in years and forgot how long it takes to dry between coats.
Don't look at the mess on the table...the whole house is in transition.
Here are a couple of hints of things I'm working on.
Here's a partial view of the mantel. I'll be adding fresh greens in a couple of days and tweaking things. I hope I don't get crazy and decide to do something totally different...no time for that before the party.
Fortunately, we decided to put the tree up before Thanksgiving, so we could take photos of the grands for their Christmas card.
Ours is a family style tree with ornaments we've collected over the years. This year, we only put about half the ornaments on, and I think I like it better that way.
Here's a hint of what's happening on the breakfast room hutch. I'm doing something totally different from what I normally do...sort of a retro look with my red and white transferware.
I've missed visiting with everyone and all your great decorating ideas, but I'll visit y'all tonight to see what everyone's doing.
I'm late, but I'll be joining Marty@ A Stroll Thru Live for
Table Top Tuesday.
Then let's go see Kim @Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday.
