Catching Up

Hi everyone, Happy New Year! I know I’m a little late with my New Year wishes. I've had a lazy and laid back holiday. It’s been great. The kids all came home for Christmas. It was great having a little guy here. He got much more excited than the big guys. And I have to say, it warmed my heart to hear him call me Nana. :)


Let me play catch up for a minute. I never showed you our Thanksgiving feast. 
And I want to make sure they’re in my blog before we get too far into the new year!

We had dinner inside again this year because it was too cold and windy.
You can see years past here, here and here.

My sister found these planters that looked like bark. I brought some potted mums which we cut up and put them in oasis. Then we mixed in some other cut flowers and greens from the yard.   
I think they turned out beautiful.

The manly men and their manly tools cut some large logs into discs about 3 inches thick. 
They made a great base for the candles and hurricane globes.

Remember the little place card holders I made? Okay, so I had help. 
They went together with the planters so well.

And last was the abundance of desserts! Oh my, it was all so good.
But it’s time to say good by to all those sweets.

New Years Eve was quiet around here. And now that #3 son is back at college and the house is once again quiet I need to start working on a few things.

I won’t call them resolutions. Too much pressure. But definitely I have things I want to accomplish.
Those are just some of the things that come to mind at the moment.

  • sew curtains for the kitchen
  • post my kitchen reveal (I did not forget)
  • paint the upstairs bathroom
  • restock my etsy shop
  • redo my cane chairs
  • paint some furniture
  • redo #3’s bedroom
  • tend to my garden (have I told you about the stinkhorns I have? ICK!)
  • paint the front door and all interior doors
  • shop for a new chair for the living room
  • lose weight (see above dessert table)

How about you? What’s on your list?
