Salty Christmas Decor

I missed the party.  Have you ever just been the girl who misses all the parties?  I planned on going.   Had my work done ahead of time, got my prettiest dress out, all ready to go and then BAM!  I missed it.  
My honey decided on Thrusday night the 12th of Dec. that we should go see his Mom, we did, she's a hoot, had a great time.  SO, since we were in the area we went see my oldest and our grandkids, had a great time, got back home late on the day of the Nester's party and then my server decided to act up and the internet was down for three days.  It was already in the plans for my sweet grand-babies to come up this weekend when suddenly, I realized "oh crap, I haven't gone Christmas shopping for the kiddos yet!  Yikes.  So I spent Thrusday in the city, Friday in the Kitchen and well ... it's late and I've missed the party.  It's official, Mr. Linky is closed down.  
Things are great for us but not running so smoothly for my blog right now.  So here is my very belated "party dress" pictures that was going to join up with the Nester's Christmas party.  Oh well, there's always next year.   

Hold the presses!  I've found a party that is still going on.  I'm linking up with Hooked On Houses.  Fitting, I'm hooked on houses too. Really bad, like I love houses and everything that goes with them, selling them, buying them, fixing them, painting them, decorating them, and especially looking at them!   Merry Christmas everyone.


Welcome and come on it.

One thing about taking pictures of your house, you get to see it objectively ... this spot needs something.  A bigger table I'm thinking.

This is my lovely lamp.  This lamp has a story ... but I not sure now is the time to share that particular story.  Let's just leave it with, "wow, what a lovely lamp you have here in the hallway."

This is our half bath.  I saw this idea in a mag. of course where else and had my carpenter make it for me.  

On to the work horse of the home.  The kitchen looks good now but wait til everyone gets here this weekend.  Lots of hungry honeys.  D and her family are coming up this weekend.  We will be having Christmas dinner with them and the rest of the family that lives nearby and then next week KP and I are going to try our hand at cooking up Christmas goodies and give them as gifts.  

A quirky little "joy" in the kitchen.  :)) 

 I'm hoping for a John Wayne movie marathon in this very spot on Christmas Day.
I told my friend Dawn, this year I'm leaving up what's in the shelves and sticking some greenery around it.  Evidently I like glittery greenry.

That was a lot of hard work, chocolate anyone?
