Hello to you all. I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend. And for those living in the Northeast, I can only imagine that you are taking advantage of the extremely warm weather here. I cannot believe that Christmas is only two weeks away and we are still having temperatures in the 60's around here. The sky has been sunny, bright and perfect for spending the afternoon in the garden. This is unheard of in December but I am not going to complain. Busy days are ahead so a few minutes of relaxing in our garden are warmly welcomed. A perfect time to gather my thoughts.
Love sitting here. Enjoying nature and planning for the days ahead. Thinking about what cookies and desserts I will bake What side dishes to make. And oh yes, which china will be used this year.
To be honest, I am planning to keep things simple. I find myself decorating with lighter tones and more natural elements this year. Especially natural greens and fresh fruits. I guess I have been inspired by Pinterest and all my fellow bloggers who have been taking this direction lately.
I also could not help myself. The ideas just kept on flowing and I quickly found myself carrying stuff outside to create something pretty for you. A simple and sweet vignette developed using fresh greenery and apples. A bit of red and white seems fresh and easy on the eyes. So lovely and sublime.
I hope December brings beauty and blessings to your days...
Warm season's greetings,
