this morning i woke up to sparkling mercury glass (and a snoring Vintage Modern Boy). i jumped out of bed, grabbed my camera, and snapped away. i realize the black tapers are a bit non-traditional...especially for the Christmas season. but i really love them!

and yes, that poor pink tree has been moved...again. (things rarely stay in one place around here!)

i hope you all had a truly wonderful Thanksgiving! i sure did! i had plans to share a pre-Thanksgiving post, but it never happened. but i want you to know how thankful i am for all of your encouragement and inspiration!

the Christmas decorating is mostly coming soon! but for now, it's hot tea and Meet Me in St. Louis in the glow of the Christmas tree. and maybe some Candy Cane Joe Joe's (Trader Joe's!).

a good night, indeed.

I am so jealous of you having Trader Joe's! I discovered it when I was in Portland this Summer, how I wish we had them down South!

I am so thankful for you, too! You have been a real muse for me, especially with regards to my photography and my Etsy shop. I just think everything you do, you do with such style.

Love ya!

The only thing missing in that tea & movie night was me! You are the only one I can watch my old musicals with :-) Miss you!

I love the black candles too, especially with the metallic colors and a the splash of pink!
