Walking in from the laundry room, looking right.
Looking up to the pot rack that was a gift from a good friend.
My table is set for casual dining, with many things that are very special to me. I have collected mice my whole life. My Dad's nickname for me was Mouse. He began to give me mice at every occasion many years ago. I lost my Dad 8 years ago, and each year when I bring these out, they take me back to the time he gave them to me. To happy, happy days. I have these reminders of him all throughout my home.
A few days ago when I was returning home from the market, dear friends of ours, Santa Ron and Mrs. Sue were at the door with this darling Xmas gift. They know I am a Mouse, and brought this thoughtful gift. A Mrs. Holiday Mouse wine box with a yummy Cabernet from Paso Robles inside! Thank you Santa Ron and Mrs. Sue!!! I love it!
Above the table is a Corona of garlands in a gold beaded ribbon and a Christmas garland entwined together.
