Getting Ready for Christmas

With less than a week until Christmas, we are all ready for holiday company. Here are a few pictures from around the B&B today.

A favorite ornament … This one survived the great-crashing-of-the-tree circa 2001. It is hung this year on a potted (living) Norwegian Pine.

Here is some fresh parsley that I have growing in the kitchen. This will go in Baked Pancetta Scallops on Christmas Eve.

Gotta have a few fresh flowers around the house, too. These are from a Christmas Party last week. There were red roses in the arrangement, but the mini-carns out lasted them. We’ll get more roses!

Seasonal decorations … I love the warm feel that they give to the house.

Willow, trying to sleep during a break between happenings.

Looking in through a window, reflecting the outside … This was the view I had earlier today while peering in at my grandparents’ tree. Our front porch (and the library across the street) reflected in the window, making for an interesting and beautiful scene.

Wishing you joy and peace around the holidays and throughout the year!

Thank you for following A Taste of Morning!
