This is the display that I have set up in our kitchen for Christmas. The
kitchen is blue, which is not the most Christmasy of colours, however
with the help of my friends I've managed to collect a fair number of
ornaments to make the room festive. Behind the kitchen table you can
see the narrow counter which is a part of a built in wall unit made in
the style of a hutch.

With apologies to our friends Rob and Sandy, here is the same area lit
up at night. The red, glowing piece is a glass brick which has had a hole
drilled into it, and a string of red lights pushed inside. Then it's been
wrapped in a bright sliver and red bow and trimmed with beads and
stuff. I picked it up at a craft show in November and I love it.

The coffee table in our living room. The Snowmen and friends under the table are from Hallmark card stores and when you press a button each one sings and dances. Quite cute, quite irresistible.

A blurry picture of our living room on the night of our Christmas party. It shows the Christmas tree all lit up, and from top to bottom. The glowing thing on top of the tree is a gold star. No tinsel, because of the cats. We don't have a fireplace mantel, so the stockings are hung by suction cups on the bay window.

Today I wrapped the last of the Christmas presents. Tomorrow my Mom and SIL come to join us for Christmas dinner. Roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, Mashed potato's, Turnip casserole and Cauliflower. SIL is bringing desert.

I hope that everyone has a most wonderful Christmas. Special shout out to Darlene who took all the above pictures, and who is such a dear, wonderful friend to us. Thanks for everything Dar.

Everything in your home looks festive & decorated nicely.

How much fun you will have with your new digital camera. I think Pheobe will be the subject of many pictures. What a beauty!

And, Happy New Year, too
