While I was baking cookies and scones early this morning, Lily was looking out on the snow covered ground.The Christmas lights were on and the world was still. She looked so cute cuddled on the chair. This is her Christmas portrait.
This wreath started as a Dollar Store special grapevine wreath. I spray painted the vines gold and then added leftover artificial greenery - over spraying the wreath. Greenery became "goldery". With the addition of some white sprigs and metallic fabric, the wreath has a holiday feeling.

My friend Mary sent me this wonderful calender filled with treats and inspiration from the Vermont Chocolate Company. Each day, during the month of December, you open a small "window" on the calender that's filled with chocolate candy and biblical text about the nativity. It's a great way to countdown to Christmas.
If you look closely in the bottom right corner of the photo you will see Lily's nose checking out the calender. Had a hard time taking the photo without her in it. She does have a sweet tooth and can't have chocolate.
