But I'm also preparing for Christmas, hence the pictures in this post. We will have my husband's parents here for several days, and will be celebrating early Christmas with them on Sunday, so all kinds of shopping and food prep and festive things have been going on. My husband also just gave me a super early Christmas present: a schmancy new iphone, which is like magic to me. My old one was sufficient but simple, and this upgrade is a treat. :) It's a 2-for-1 holiday weekend, and there was much rejoicing.
Lights are strung across walls and around windows
Boxes that have been arriving, and some wrapping supplies
Our stockings, simple and practical with a little pretty on them.

I love getting out and using for the first time this lace doily my mom made. Cheap candles and votive holders found thrift.
