All I Want for Christmas

Hi All!

I hope your Christmas was great! I can say that for myself it was great. So warn and wonderful to be around family.

I want to show you some pictures here of my Christmas table. I made the centerpiece with persimmons and pine and used a wee winter sleigh as the skeleton. The table cloth was thrifted and when I found it I almost peed. It is such a treasure...Vintage - Linen - Festive - Organic!!! I used salt and pepper cellars in addition to the vintage shakers also thrifted!

My Christmas Menu was, if I must say, the greatest meal I have ever made.  I suppose I should add recipes but for now I'd like to keep my recipes breasted.

I've also included a photo of the tree. And the earrings are hand made by Anna. I've also included a photo of Happy Goat Caramels. A treat that was gifted to Anna  - little gamey but unusual and interesting.

The menu was:

Pot Roast
Maple Roasted Winter Vegetable
Sausage, Mushroom and Apple Dressing with Apples and Sultanas
Challah Bread (not mine)
Scandinavian Almond Cake with Cranberry Compote
Persimmon Pudding

Vintage Christmas Eve

I'm a little tired today. The holidays have taken their toll and now after buying for 8, I'll only be cooking for 5...both a blessing and a disappointment. I just miss the festiveness. But I wish blessings to all who couldn't make it here and especially to those who aren't with their families. Enjoy these little freebies!
Also, enjoy perusing the christmas oranament, bottle brush trees, ornaments from Etsy, and a tiny Vintage Santa.

Merry Christmas,
