Between the Thanksgiving holiday and then coming back to surgery the next day, I haven't been doing any art or even felt up to keeping up with all your wonderful blogs - I hate the feeling of being behind on what's going on with all of you, but have really only felt up to laying around and watching any Christmas movies I can find. I planned ahead and decorated my house early, and even put up a Christmas tree the night before my surgery. If I was going to be laying around the house for a week, I wanted to be looking at a Christmas tree!  I took some pictures of the house yesterday, I thought I'd share my view if I don't have any art to share, but after downloading them I've realized how bad I am at taking indoor pictures. I didn't even get a decent one of my Christmas tree.  I think I'll just go ahead and blame my camera...

God-awful picture of my Christmas village...

I adore this old French hand holding up some garland

My little nutcracker tree in my bedroom

And lest anyone feel too sorry for me, my Mom is here which has been a treat, and she baked me some of her fruit cake (don't judge) the best, most Christmasy smell and taste there is!


  1. Hi Terri

    Have I missed a post? I didn't know you had had surgery. Hope you recover soon.

    How nice to have your mum with you and so much cake to eat!!!!!

  2. Ahhh..... I caught up! Least you can smell the cake that must be a good sign!


  3. Ooh Terri - what a gorgeous house you have - I LOVE your decorations - that hand is wonderful and what a beautiful snow scene, Oh, and I love those little christmas stockings and the bowl of ornaments...!
    I do hope you are recovering well from your surgery - it's great you have your mum there, especially if she bakes such yummy cakes.
    Look after yourself,

  4. Surgery! boo. BUT yay on your decor! I love the old-fashioned vintage feel of it all - and the fact that there's plenty of glitter! Feel better - eat (fruit) cake! xoxo
