unexpected joys of decorating

adsc05071

hi everyone! hope you’re kicking back to enjoy the weekend. i know i am. leaving for ny in a couple of days and trying to help lz get her house ready for the holidays before i go. i’m a little anti holiday decorations since i’ve always been around an abundance of them my whole life between mom, gram, aunts, et al, so shopping this afternoon I was surprised to find all these beautiful temptations! one of my friends asked what i would do for the holidays so tomorrow i’ll post some things i’d buy if i were decorating my own place. liz went for a sort of organic theme which i’m really liking. i’m a fool for these vintagy houses, they remind me of grandfathers’s train he’d set up each year. there were trees and houses, and i guess that little town just did it for me! come to think about it, i do love those old decorations that have gone up each year since i can remember.

ok well, i’m hoping to come and visit but the first glass of wine has been poured! xoc

    Mmm wine. How lovely!
    I’m going to an International Festival this weekend and I’m pretty excited. :) It’s said to have an international wine and food tasting that’s quite something!

    A few weeks ago the thought of decorating my house for Christmas seemed a world away. Slowly I am starting … this year won’t be full blown … my heart just isn’t in it! ‘Less is more’ will be my motto… :)
