Bits & Pieces

This year, Christmas and Hanukkah begin at the same time. Are you ready? I am kind of ready… I still have a few loose ends to tie up and then I am good to go. Luckily, I have a few days off, so if anything arises, I have the time. Although I don’t decorate much, I love looking at what others have done with their homes.

Here are some things I am thinking about this season.

  • I love the little copper wire lights that seem to be everywhere now. I got some last winter at Terrain and have added them to my collection (of three) domes. I aspire to have as many domes as this!image
  • I’ve finally gotten the last of the tea-towels mailed. For something I did on a whim, it turned out to be quite a successful project! Thanks to everyone who bought one… or more!maryland crab small
  • I had bought two huge bunches of magnolia branches with the intention of doing some decorating with them, but we had a hard frost and they all turned black. So I just stuck the branches in the urns outside my house. I like this idea. imageBut this would have been the reality!image
  • One thing I love about this time of year is miniature mincemeat tarts. My father used to make pies and tarts with mincemeat, and it’s such a huge reminder of him and our Christmas-time as children. image
  • I am really hoping that Figue cooperates and gets in the Christmas spirit. I tried taking pictures of her wrapped in little lights, and she was having NONE of that. image

What’s on your agenda for the next week or so?


  1. LOL! Imagine that: a dog with a mind of her OWN!!! Yet another challenge from the 4 legged family members who actually DO run our lives!!! Merry Christmas, Meg!

  2. I love your mincemeat tart photos. Nostalgia for sure. My mother always made mincemeat pies from scratch for Christmas. Wishing you a Merry Christmas.
