Christmas, Thursday Favorite Things

Welcoming the Christmas Season at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy Holiday season and welcome to TFT! This is my FIFTH year co-hosting this fabulous weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers
NOTE: The party time has changed to 9:00 a.m. MDT (11:00 EST)



Here’s what I’ve been up to!


We had a wonderful and blessed thanksgiving with our son returning home for the first time since going off to culinary school! It was apparent that all his studies have paid off so far, as he  cooked almost ALL of Thanksgiving dinner to perfection including the turkey, which allowed me some free time to do some Christmas decorating! I will at least be able to share our porch and foyer for next week’s Christmas Home Tours! I had finished my Christmas tree  the day after Thanksgiving and enjoyed it for ONE DAY, then all the lights went out! GRR!!!!!! I am not sure I will have it redone in time for the tour but that’s the way it goes!



I recently shared a post about how I am using vintage dishes filled with Christmas fruits to create simple, old world Christmas elegance. I am almost “over it” as far as a large Christmas tree and think I would be just as happy with simpler Christmas decorations!


Now here are some beautiful features from last week’s party!

    I’m so glad you got to have your son home with you for Thanksgiving – and what a wonderful skill he brought back with him! 🙂 Good luck with the rest of your decorating! Thank you so much for featuring my party sneak peek table – that was so sweet of you! I’m linked at #73 this week, with the actual party mantel. I so appreciate you hosting, Amber.
