I hope everyone had a great weekend.
We start our week in Texas with a change in the air.
We went to bed with 76 degrees outside, very high humidity and, of course, with the AC on.
We woke up like popsicles since, over night, a cold front came in and the temperatures dropped to 41 degrees.
Now, how is this even possible?
So, it may start feeling like Christmas around here after all.
I had a post ready to publish today with my kitchen Christmas decor, but, the amount of pictures was just a little too much, so I decided to do this in a couple of post, or may be three. LOL
Don't want you to fall to sleep on your computers!
Last year I used this small tree with my holiday decor on the front porch, but this year, it ended up in the kitchen, don't know how that happened, because it wasn't even planned.
On this little tree I added a bit of bead garland, some red poinsettias and all the ornaments that have any meaning to us, like the ones my kids made in Elementary school through out the years. And, next to it, sits my cute little snowman.
He makes me smile every time!
Our friends gave us this one as a gift on the first Christmas in our new home.
And this ornament is priceless to me.
My very best friend, Mary, sent it to me December 2003.
Mary passed away from cancer in 2004, just a few months after, at the age of 41.
She used to send me little things like this every year, and that little tree she made, with all of our family names on it, was the last one I would receive.
Right next to the tree, on the window seat, I added the candle holders I normally have on my mantle.
I left the burlap ribbon on them and just changed the Fall picks on them to a small red poinsettia.
I will put another post together this week with the rest of the Christmas kitchen decor.
Until then, enjoy your week!
See you all soon.
