Some Holiday Cheer!

It's a quick jump from Halloween to Christmas--on the blog AND in real life! How did December fly by so fast? I've managed to do a bit of holiday decorating and baking, and thought I would share it with you. (I'll be back to "real" blogging in January.)

For now, Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel, Gladelig Jul, Feliz Navidad, and many more greetings to you and yours for a wonderful holiday, whatever you celebrate!

Feather tree close up--I'm so happy
with the wall color in the entry because everything looks good against it!

The living room--focal point for all things "holiday-ish"

And to all a good night!

Meanwhile back at the blog…

All the action the last two month has been in REAL life as we moved ourselves and my mom into the new, almost finished, house. 

Mom’s cottage is completely done, but the main house still requires a lot of work, largely in the area of moldings, built-ins, a few remaining light fixtures, etc.
Without really intending to, you can see that I took a long blog vacation. But I’m back and I intend to try and catch up on the story of designing and building our house starting with a few images from Halloween and Thanksgiving, inside and outside the house in the Sunset Hill neighborhood.
