We were without internet, TV, phones, etc…most of the day today due to a storm. Maybe it was for the better:) Anyway better late than never, couldn’t let the day end without wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

Hi to my dear readers and customers. Words cannot describe how happy I am that Christmas is here, as in totally giddy that it’s over. It has been a nonstop work month and this little elf is totally utterly exhausted. When on Christmas Eve day, I made my list at 5am of all I needed to do, I realized just how behind I was. Somehow, someway it all got done, just by the skin of my teeth with many comical moments along the way. You either have to laugh or cry, right?

I finally decided to cut myself a break, working 9, 10 hour days just did not allow time to get anything else done. Lesson learned for next year! Christmas shopping and prep begins in JULY. You read it here first:)

Granted this year was unlike any other so I had to shrug it off, that it was very much in keeping with the theme of 2020. Boy will I be glad when this is over! Though we have a long road ahead of us, just turning the page to a new year makes me feel calmer already.

I just wanted to thank you all for being there to support and encourage me, for being the best readers and customers I could ever dream of having. 5 years ago when I started my online business, I never in a million years dreamed it could be what it is today. Not a day goes by that I do not remind myself of how grateful and fortunate I am.

I love what I do and am excited to roll my sleeves up and get to work every single day, and you are a huge part of that. I can say with confidence I think the best is yet to come, 2021 is going to be an incredibly exciting year filled with all kinds of new things, different directions, a fresh new website, and some surprises along the way. I cannot wait to share with you as they happen.

I wish everyone the merriest Christmas, hug those you love just a little tighter because as we have all learned this year, life is a precious gift and can be incredibly fragile. My heart goes out to all those missing a loved one this year, too many families feeling that pain. I am not going to complain one iota because we have our health and we are HERE. I will miss being with my family but recognize that is a tiny price to pay to keep those we love safe.

So here are just a few pictures I snapped before everything went out (including my phone) but thankfully  in the end it all came together just in the nick of time:)


The highlight and hit of our Christmas was my sons new puppy, who is soooo cute!!! I felt like a doting quasi grandmother:) He is still mulling over a few names, so right now he is called “boy” until he decides:)

That face!

He was most curious to see what was in the refrigerator!

All that attention is mighty exhausting:)



And that is a wrap for Christmas 2020. Only was able to take a few pictures until my phone died. All in all a good day despite a few morning hiccups with the storm and winds. Missed being with my entire family but was so grateful to be seated at the table with my immediate family, feeling incredibly lucky to have them by my side. I recognize a number of families were not that lucky. Cheers to a much better year in 2021, may life get back to normal and may the rest of your holiday be filed with happiness, laughter, love and peace. Until next time……

Beautiful artfully arranged dining room table replete with your “ enchanting” Christmas decor. However, I must say it might have been upstaged by that daring puppy. Hopefully, a name will be selected soon to relieve him of the generic name, “boy!!!” Enjoy your time with your beloved family. Santa thinks you need a long overdue winter nap!

Tina…. I chuckle when I read about preparing for Christmas early because I say that, too (and I’m 55, go figure)! Soooo happy to see a furry little friend at your home. He’s not officially yours, but please keep us posted on the decided name! Merry Christmas!

I’m loving that rustic (lodgey?) flatware on your first table setting but don’t see it in your shop. Is it discontinued?

Such a sweet puppy! Adorable! I got my mom a puppy from Sharper Image. It’s very lifelike and recommended for older seniors who can no longer care for a shhh…real dog. She loves it. They have a cat too. But since we always had Golden Retrievers, I got her the puppy instead of the cat. We had a lot of fun with it on Christmas Day.
