Last night we had a home tour. We toured three homes decorated for Christmas and then went to the church for cookies, hot chocolate and spiced apple cider. Mmmm. Good. Our home was on the tour so I set the kitchen table in a wintery theme. I used crocheted doilies as placemats on a checked background. The folded paper stars were perfect as napkin rings.
This morning I UN-decorated the tree since it was an artificial one borrowed from a friend and we'll put up a REAL tree in a week or 10 days. And we ate breakfast at the wintery table but now that's gone too. The dining table is still set and I'll share some other pictures later.
I'm feeling very mellow and relaxed - exams and papers finished, this busy week done, and now...I have many Christmas projects to work on. I can hardly wait to start!
