Christmas Cheer!

Hi All,
It has been awhile since I have posted, but I wanted to share some Christmas Cheer with you!  I hosted our yearly Christmas party with my tennis group.  I made a traditional dinner which included, honey baked ham, loaded hash brown casserole, coleslaw, apple cranberry and sage stuffing, rolls and pumpkin pie cake for dessert.  Hope you all are having an enjoyable holiday season!







Merry Christmas!

More Fall

Hi All,
The temps are cooling off in Illinois.  That makes me want to nest in my beloved Cape home.
I bought a pumpkin cookie jar this year, very similar to Mary's.  I won't bother to explain who Mary is, as you must know by now what a huge fan I am of The Mary Tyler Moore show?!

Frosted pumpkins atop The Flair

Finally,  got my chalkboard door done!
Hope you are having great Fall weather!!!

Fall Porch Time

Hi All,
It's a sunny, beautiful late summer day.  I have decorated the porch for Fall.  Looking forward to all those ghosts and goblins coming to see me, too!  The boys love the porch and sunning themselves.
Enjoy!

Fall is Coming!

Hi All,
I spent yesterday decorating for Fall.  I have a great attic space above the garage where I keep all my seasonal decorations.  I even had my carpenter put a real stairway up to it, so when I am hauling down totes, etc, I am safe.  Here are a few scene of Fall around the cape house.



We are expecting 60's for the weekend.  Excited!!!  Hope you are all getting into the Fall spirit!

More Favorite Things

Hi All,
We just returned from visiting our daughter and family in Vermont.  What a beautiful place.  The best part was, I got to spend time with my Grandson.  He is the best baby.  Well, you knew I was going to say that, didn't you???
Here are a few more of my favorite things...
The sweet, tiny window I had my builder incorporate into our addition, a few years ago.

My movie books and some bibles.  I have been collecting them since I was 17.  They are like old friends.

The little music figurine my Granny bought me, one Christmas.  She said it reminded her of the two of us making noodles in her old farmhouse.  Priceless!

The colonial blue tole lamp I found on ebay, several years ago.
Have a great week!
