A Little French Country Christmas Started

Did you all survive Thanksgiving.  Ours was wonderful and we are having another one Sunday, so I have a turkey and dressing, green bean casserole, candied yams, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce all planned and organized for another big feast.  I'm baking a second round of goodies, so while that is in the oven, I have been playing and creating another small French Country Christmas vignette for the kitchen.  Here's a little sneak peak.

Some flowers and pinecones is about all I have out for Christmas.  Too early to get all those boxes down from the attic.

This is similar to one I did once before.  I had the bread and it was going stale, so good time to decorate with it.

I hope you're all having a super day shopping and decorating.  I will see you Monday evening for Table Top Tuesday.  Have a super weekend.

Also a huge thank you to everyone that has donated to Elves for Ceekay.  Tomorrow is the last day the paypal button will be open for donations.  If you havn't ready the whole story, just click here. Thanks again, we are just about there to be able to grant her wish.
