(it's hot in the kitchen)
My Christmas OOTD was a sleeveless LBD with black beaded flowers,
charcoal hose and black slingback shoes.
A black apron protected me from splatters...
I added a little bit of bling just because I felt like it...
Rhinestone Sherman pin
The Humble Bungalow Christmas table....
set in black with some silver accents.
Plain and simple.
Pepper wanted to jump up on the table
so we had to put her downstairs until dinner was finished!
On a walk in our neighbourhood
we found some cedar cuttings
and I popped them into some matte white vintage pottery.
They sit on the window ledge above our sink.
I put the reindeer on the boughs
they were the centre piece
they looked lovely flickering in the candle light.
It's the Tuesday after Christmas and we have dined on turkey sandwiches with gravy dip...
decadent and tasty,
if it were not pouring rain I would have gone for a long long walk today.
We sat in front of the warm fire in the Bungalow living room and read books this evening.
There is such luxury in reading and relaxing.
The paper whites
are pretty and perky
and have shown no signs of wilting.
I, on the other hand, feel like crawling into bed early
between the cool sateen sheets
cocooning with my book
to awake refreshed
ready to greet the day
with energy and an optimistic view.
I received the DVD
"Midnight in Paris"
and am keen to watch it.
Mr. HB gave me a Spa Package at my favourite hotel.
I am going to savour that gift...
I'd like to take a moment to thank you all
for your gift of visiting me here in The Humble Bungalow.
I value your comments
and hope that you will keep coming back.
I hope that you have been enjoying your time with family and friends.
Hugs from the Hostess
