Holiday Wrapping

My Christmas wrapping is feeling very Anthropologie-esque this year with kraft paper, wooden buttons, and cozy apple green fleece serving as the ribbon.

A Work in Progress...

This is a shot from my latest project. We are installing the furniture in 2 weeks and the entire house will be completely transformed over the next couple of weeks. This project feels like Extreme Home Makeover with the kitchen and roof all going in this week. It always looks much worse before it looks better though.

On the First Day of Christmas...

As for the dessert menu... Fresh Cherry Pie, Gingerbread, Chocolate Tart, Chocolate Mousse, Assorted Chocolates, Giant Meringues from Comptoir Gourmand, and Ginger Dodgers from Bee's Bakery
The Ginger Dodgers from Bee's Bakery!
My greenery for the winter are these mini conifers in silver porcelain pots from McQueens.
