Christmas at Mom's House

Let's go visit my Mom's house.  
Her mantel is decorated for the holidays.  That frame over the
mantel came from my Great Grandmother's farm in Pennsylvania.

Daddy brought the sconces back from a trip to Rome.  We are the
lucky recipients of his many international business travels.

A pretty ornament on the mantel.

Let's move over to the coffee table for some cheese fondue and a glass of wine.

Daddy brought this fondue pot back from a trip to Switzerland.  We always
serve fondue at Christmas.

Would you like to stay for Christmas lunch?

Have a seat at Mom's cozy table.

Or find a comfy spot in her solarium.

A Christmas angel will welcome you ...

And a comfy throw will too.

Don't forget to help yourself to some chocolates in the Christmas candy box.

Thank you for coming with me to visit my Mom.  She loves company!

I am joining ~


Bentley ~ I know you just had Birthday presents, but there will be lots
of Christmas presents for you too.  What a lucky dog you are!
