Christmas Inspiration

Well, now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it's time to start the Christmas count down and decorating.
 How do you like me as an elf? ha ha...

I am not one, who like to fight the crowds the day after Thanksgiving.
My husband and I had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner with a bottle of champagne.
I hope all of you enjoyed  the special day, either with family and friends.  
On to Christmas!

 We have a lovely store  in a town down the hill that is so beautiful to visit. It's called Pottery World.
They really pull out all of the stops, regarding decorating.  There is inspiration everywhere.

Do you like my new look?
I have been busy designing blogs and headers.

Enjoy!    Where's those left-overs?

  14. I love your new look! How do you make it snow? that is really neat!! You sure make a cute elf, ha ha! I really like that flocked tree, and am always drawn to them in the stores or in other decorated homes, but fail to ever have enough courage for one of my own. I am afraid it would make a horrible mess, especially with two curious cats!
