To all my dear readers, friends and family... here is a little glimpse at our house ready now for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We are having a cozy family gathering tonight, then tomorrow will go across the San Francisco Bay to celebrate with Tante Lucile! I would love to see your Christmas pictures and hear about your plans for celebrating!
|the angel watches over us all..|
|the tree is done in all gold and is in a zinc barrel with|
gauzy gold wrap
|the stockings are hung, the table is getting ready for the Christmas eve feast of|
Dungeness crab and raclette, followed by Almond Cake
|the wreath is hung...|
|the festive table cloth is ready...|
|the tulips and Minton plates are so pretty together...|
|the dessert buffet is filling up....|
|..with candies from Mexico and France...|
|we wait for evening to light candles, play music and begin our celebration...|
Hope your Christmas is wonderful and warm
and full of good cheer
and peace for the weary earth, please!
lots of love and
