Christmas Party

The Christmas Party invitations are out, the menu has been planned, the decorations are up and now I get to enjoy the beautiful company of my friends this coming weekend.

When I was little, I hated my surname, but I have come to love it, especially this time of year.

Christmas Cards - 2011

The time is here to start looking at Christmas cards.  There are SO many fun ones this year.  I've collected a few of my favorites - in case I don't have time to make mine this year.

Thanksgiving Dinner 2011

I am truly thankful for what I think may have been my favorite Thanksgiving Dinner ever.  It was such a love and laughter-filled afternoon and evening.  Everything went off without a hitch and was so relaxing.

Inside the little napkin envelopes were notes listing all the reasons I am thankful for that person.

Thanksgiving Dinner Plans

My parents have surprised me by announcing that they are flying into New York on Thanksgiving Day. This will be the first time I've ever hosted any Thanksgiving and even though this will be a very small gathering, I'm quite excited.  I've already put a very simple menu together, gathered the recipes and made my shopping list of things I will need.  I am sure there will be another vegetable in there, but I've yet to decide what that will be.
I thought I would share my pre-planning with you.

Colorful Farmyard

Aren't these jars THE most fun?!  
I stumbled upon them via Creature Comforts who found 
They would be the easiest things to make; just a little glue & some spray paint.  I might try these for Christmas gifts with deer on top painted white...What do you think!?

Beginning of the hunting and gathering phase

Every year, right after Halloween, my mind skips to Christmas fun.  I know so many people think that this is way too early to start thinking of the holiday, but I like to revel in the dreaminess of the season as long as possible.  So in early November I begin hunting for fun things to give and use for the holidays.  

This weekend I am headed to an antique market to begin looking for things that I can use this Christmas.   Here are a few things that you should be on the lookout for.  As we get closer to the holiday, I will begin showing you how I use these various items to decorate and gift wrap.
Happy Hunting & Gathering!
