In the hubbub of saying goodbye to our guests last night, my camera stowed away in my friends bag. So its on a little vacation until it can get a ride back home. That means I can't get at the photos I took for you to see. But I can show you the ones I took on Christmas Eve...
First off the tree. Let me say that I absolutely adore trees that are themed and the decorators that have the discipline to use only one or two colors. I open my ornaments box with a plan to be just as practical but then I see some of my favorite ornaments from my life and I just can't leave them in the box. Its as if they call out to me and demand to be displayed. So in the end, I never have a theme tree.
And some of my favorite ornaments:
Homewarming gift from a friend, my wedding favor, a blown glass souvenir from Venice
On the other hand, theme gift wrap is very me. Too many colors give me a headache.
Here is a close up of the message board I used to display my cards:
And the dining room just before I shut off the lights to wait for Santa.
As soon as my camera finds its way home, Ill share a few more.
