Getting Ready For Christmas






It's Christmas tree time, and I am excited as a child.
Remember when you were a child and knew Santa would find you?
So this year I am decorating the tree for him.
Come look!






The tree was put up dressed with the Chinese puppets.
Plus red balls, lights, and stars.






Here are some closeup pictures of the Chinese puppets!















































They love being on the Christmas tree.
I know because they told me.






Along with the puppets we have some lovely red balls.






Also we have Santa Claus on the Christmas tree






This was a Chinese man I found at Pearl River in NY some years ago.






I dressed the Christmas tree for Santa Claus.
Tell me dear readers, what Christmas time means to you.
I would love to hear. 
Merry Christmas everyone!




Love,




Peggy

Thanksgiving Ideas



THANKSGIVING has always been one of my favorite holidays.
Turkey and all the trimmings, then to make gumbo the next day,
to be grateful  for everything that you have.
What's not to love?
Here are a few things I just loved from Pinterest.






Give these to your guest as they leave, just love this.






What could be better than a menu on each person plate.






 And for the centerpiece, a pumpkin with roses & mums.






This is such a great idea!



unknown



A turkey made out of fruit.






A balloon to be thankful for!






Blessings- a great idea.






I am always looking for something to tell me how much to make
 + how long to cook the turkey.






This is so simple but lovely.



unknown



I have been thinking of this leaf.
Just may have to steal this idea.


unknown



Such a divine table.


unknown



Love this for each plate.
Could be so interesting.






White fruit dipped in gold.
simple + divine.


So there you have some great ideas for Thanksgiving.
What are some of your favorites, dear readers?
Please do tell me.




Love,



Peggy
