When PB No Longer Means Peanut Butter!
And, of course, no visit is complete without at least a few swings though my favorite Pottery Barn-PB. The beautiful Joy pillows on both ends of the couch were a Christmas splurge and match nicely with the wreath pillow cover from last year. These are not inexpensive but they are well made covers that I can just slip on and off every year and don't require nearly as much storage space as they would if they were pillows. I love them and am going to try to buy - or make- only holiday covers from now on.
The day before we left, Hudson had his "Polar Express" birthday party. I did not do a very good job with picture taking because I was busy before it started helping set up and once the guests started arriving, it got hectic! Lost count of how many kids and parents were there-just know it was busy and fun-too much fun to try to pull Hud aside for any posed pictures and the rest are random but the porch served as the train station where the kids got their ticket invitations punched and the screened porch was the North Pole. It looked really good covered in "snow" with a beautiful tree in the corner but, sorry, no pictures to prove it.
Hubby and I are also hoping to get in a day trip to Mt. Dora with lunch at the tearoom and shopping and antiquing too so we will see how it goes.
Any way, this is our dining room this year-a few changes from last year but not many.
