December Decorating...

I have been away from my blog for quite a while...and I missed it! We have been clearing my Mom's house and moving her to a lovely assisted living apartment nearby. Mom isn't a hoarder, but she does have many nice things; china, etc., and many of those items must find new homes. Her house is now being readied for sale, but we are taking a break during the festive season....time to start the decorating and baking!.....
I have started on the china cabinet...


We have  a new mantel ordered for our dining room fireplace, so it should arrive next week...looking forward to that!
I don't want to get so involved in the trappings of Christmas that I forget about the real reason...

Hi Millie,
We have missed you! I'm glad your mother will be close by. That's nice for everyone.
I like your china mugs; very pretty. How nice to be getting a new mantel. I'm sure you will have fun decorating it. Enjoy the weekend.

Blessings,
