It’s Time for a Holiday Photo Op!

We’ve been really busy around here with holiday decorating, entertaining, and house guests. All that exciting activity meant that I didn’t have a whole lot of time for blogging, but I have a few photos to share as we go careening into 2015.

Got My Reservations -- Christmas Pudding

We enjoyed a traditional British Christmas pudding.

I decorated with an angel theme this year — angels everywhere!




I spent a fun day at my favorite local store, photographing vignettes for the black and white challenge that was going around on Facebook. Thanks to Lucky Junk for the photo ops.

The vintage colors of these babies look better than the black and white.

I also took a photo trip around Pier One, doing a study of multiples with my new lens.


This isn’t exactly a multiple, but the frosty place setting caught my eye.

Our guest rooms are being primped and I’m doing a lot of menu planning. I love cooking appetizers that we usually don’t allow ourselves to indulge in other times of the year, such as bacon-wrapped dates.

Before I sign off for 2014, I’m sharing the best recipe I tried over the holiday season.

I actually made these all in one morning, but I wish I had done the overnight thing on Christmas Eve as planned. They were awesome, nonetheless, and a crowd pleaser for our Christmas brunch.

I hope you all have a wonderful finale to your December and I’ll see you in 2015!
