Sitting at the kitchen table this morning, listening to classical soft Christmas carols and watching the birds at the feeder. The little finch goes first as the chickadee and cardinal, sitting on the rail, patiently wait their turn. I am addressing our Christmas cards. Every year we get less and less cards. I so look forward to the walk to the mailbox with Ben and peeking in to see if there are any red envelopes or maybe an elegant gold one. I saw on the news the other day where the post office is once again raising the rates. Is that the reason why so many no longer send cards? Or is everyone using the internet to send their cards or just simply too busy to sit down and address cards and maybe include a little note about family happenings? Or is it something only us olden people do now a days? I always buy more than one set of cards......this year it was three sets. Problem with that is, I always have a few cards leftover and the following year I want to use them, but can't remember what I sent to who. :) Here is one of the cards I sent this year. It's whimsical and sweet with a bit of bling.
I also wanted to show this morning, how I think I will set our Christmas breakfast table this year. It's just Bobby G. and me until later in the day when family and friends arrive. I always make sausage balls every year and Christmas morning sweet rolls. We might even have mimosas, since I have these cute little Santa Claus wine glasses I found last year. :) Ran across the giant frosted snowflakes and I think they make fun chargers, don't you?
Have you finished your decorating yet? I haven't. I have just been doing a little bit at a time and can't seem to get my act together but I am almost there. And I have to get out this week and finish my Christmas shopping.
I am joining White Wednesday at Faded Charm, Table Top Tuesday at a Stroll Through Life and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch this week. Have a wonderful week and hopefully, I'll be back later for Pink Saturday. I wanted to show you our kitchen tree, the old white sled, and some other things. xoxo
