Christmas Tree

Snow Day

This morning we woke up to a picture perfect snow covered day. Heavy wet snow fell overnight, making everything look like a winter wonderland. It was our puppy's first time in the snow, she loved it, so it seemed.









Happy puppy!

Holiday Brunch



For the past eleven years on the first Friday of December, I have hosted a "Holiday Brunch" at my home. The group started with 7 stay at home moms, it has grown through the years, however, it is limited to how many I can sit at my dining room table, and that's 12. 
Mimosas, baked ham, cheese blintzes, quiche, bacon, fruit salad and a baked item or two, is usually what's on the menu, along with interesting conversations and of course, wonderful friends.






For the table, I put together three pavé style arrangements, using ivory color Vendela Roses and Lily Grass,  very simple but elegant.



Every year I look forward to this day, I can't think of a better way to start the holiday season.

Thanksgiving


Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving, it was a lovely day, very warm for this time of year here in the North East.  My turkey came out quite delicious, very juice and tender.  This weekend I will start getting ready for Christmas, very much looking forward to decorating my home and entertaining, and spending time with our family and our dear friends.

Autumn







Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. Crisp mornings, cool nights, apple picking, apple pie, pumpkins, gourds, comfort foods, cozy sweaters, fires in the fireplace, Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course, the colorful splendor of Mother Nature.
Here's my tribute to this wonderful season, enjoy!

THE CARS OF CUBA




 Cuba is an open air car museum, everywhere you look you will see one of these old American classics, mixed in with other imports. It's spectacular and amazing how these beauties are still on the road.
No words necessary, just photos, enjoy!
