Joyeux Noel

On the heels of a big family dinner here on Thursday and two hours of sleep last night,  I’m dragging just a little.  But nothing that can’t be fixed by a good cup of coffee, and later a Kir Royal, and now a dose of Christmas sparkle~


I look forward to the arrival of my family this evening, and have been thoroughly enjoying many holiday wishes I have received from so many friends near and far.  My wish is that there would be room for all of us at one table!


Tomorrow I will clean up, and pack for France.  Today, an 18 pound turkey is in the oven and I just want to enjoy the moment; I wish everyone a lovely Christmas eve, in your own little corner of the world~


A Happy Christmas to all~


  1. Wishing you a lovely Christmas.
    So happy to have "met" you!

  2. Merry Christmas, Andrea! I hope you have a wonderful time in France.

  3. What a beautiful room Andrea. Is that a gingerbread house I spy? Have a beautiful Christmas!

  4. Yoyeux Noel Andrea...
    Your table looks absolutely beautifull and inviting, I love everything about it.

  6. As always Andrea a gorgeous holiday table, with such precious heirlooms.
