While some may "fall softly into winter," my daughter is charging in with screaming pink! I thought you'd like a preview of her decorations, which I'll show more of when I visit her at Christmas. She's all about vintage, like this white tree with pink lighting and vintage thrifted ornaments.
I'm not putting up my forest of trees this year because I'll be gone and they're a lot of work, but I did hang my newly finished tree quilt above the mantel.
I cried for two days when I thought the bin holding these hand-knitted stockings was accidentally thrown out. Then I found it high up in a dark back corner of the garage. I was so relieved because my aunt knitted mine when I was little and my mother knitted Julia's for her first Christmas. They've been a tradition all of our lives, and I just couldn't face this year of all years without them. Julia and I always stuff each other's stockings to overflowing.
The other theme in my decorating
is, of course, bunnies.
Bunnies here ...
... bunnies there ...
... everywhere a bun, bun!
In the kitchen, cheery red
and crisp white are the colors.
A lot of baking has been going on in there the last few weeks. Yesterday I made Kahlua balls, a variation of my mother's traditional rum balls. Next up, cookies!
Have a colorful day
