How is it almost mid-December?! My, how this month has flown!!
In preparing for houseguests later this month, I’m really trying to get everything done. Now. Sometimes a deadline is just what you need to make things happen. Whether it’s setting the table, ordering or making cookies (use them as place cards) or just getting presents wrapped….anything I can do before they arrive will help me enjoy the holidays. Easy for me to say, as I’ve still got our holiday cards in a box on my dining room table. I need to get them mailed, so I can actually set the table.
In the meantime…here are a few shots of how things are looking around our house.

My table is set for a morning tea with a few other local artist friends. I think taking time to make others feel special is just what the holiday is about. Wrapping it up as we are in the homestretch feels good.
Love all your holiday style.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Now all we need is snow.

Elizabeth, it looks so festive! I love the red glassy babies (think I need one or two). Also love the idea of using those gorgeous cookies as place cards.
Another friend named Elizabeth said something the other night that really stuck with me – the holidays are busy and stressful, there is always more that can be done, but it's important to notice the magic along the way (even if it's just when your favorite Christmas song comes on when you are in line at the grocery store).
I hope you are happy with the progress this weekend! Good luck! And hope you get to notice a little magic along the way! XOXO
Very pretty Elizabeth! I saw the title of your blog post and I thought.. YES, I need to keep calm and keep on wrapping:)You would not believe how behind I am. It is so embarrassing I won't even talk about it!! We are still trying to move in and the construction crew is coming around daily to create a continue stream of dust. I am still carrying on .. parties and all and I believe sleep is over-rated, ha!
The reds and tartan are beautiful. I'm adding a bit here and there in our new place:)
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the family festivities.
