Our Peacock Themed Christmas

It's been a lot of work,
but we finally have the house decorated for Christmas.


The Tree: blue, teal, purple and peacocks! 

I decided to up our game this year and go all out.


The Banister 

Being a lover of cooler colors,
I opted for a peacock theme this year.
Such pretty colors they are.
Don't you agree?


Candles

I couldn't help myself,
I set the table already.
I just had to see how it would turn out.


Peacock Plates  

My husband thinks 
I've gone a bit overboard.  
Who? Me?  

The Mantle 

But it has been so much fun.  

Ready for Christmas Dinner 

Don't you just love it?
It is so  festive.
I think I will tweak it to make it work for Easter too.  

Details Over the Table 

Can you believe this? 
Well, if not it is because I am pulling your leg. 
This is not my lovely home - 
but a room in Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA

But a girl can dream....

Christmas in The City: Philadelphia

Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, PA

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks.

Dressed in holiday style

In the air

There's a feeling

of Christmas

RiverRink, Penn's Landing, Philadelphia, PA

Children laughing

People passing

Meeting smile after smile

and on every street corner you'll hear



Sharing is Caring, City Hall, Philadelphia, PA

Silver bells, silver bells

It's Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them sing

Soon it will be Christmas day



City Hall, Philadelphia, PA

Strings of street lights

Even stop lights

Blink a bright red and green

As the shoppers rush

home with their treasures


Christmas Village at Love Park, Philadelphia, PA

Hear the snow crunch

See the kids bunch

This is Santa's big scene

And above all this bustle

You'll hear



Macy's, Philadelphia, PA

Silver bells, silver bells

It's Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them sing

Soon it will be Christmas day 


Comcast Center, Philadelphia, PA

and I am happy to say, I am finished.

The Apple of My Eye



I've been known to buy an apple just because I like its colors.
This one...
was all about the leaf.

Said apple is now in a pie.
