Thanks for stopping by on a day so close to Christmas. I know you must be busy, so if you're reading this in the midst of this holiday season, I am especially thankful for your visit. Today, our wish for a white Christmas was granted by a freshly fallen blanket of snow. Here's a peek of my attempt at snowflake making.

This is what I found on my camera this morning, even though I slept right through sunrise. The view from our bedroom window that Henri captured for this sleepyhead.
Just look what Lee from The Way I See It sent me in the mail recently. A lovely handcrafted rose pin. All I did was leave a comment on her post and she awarded me with this beautiful customized creation. I just love it!
She has had her artwork featured in Somerset Apprentice, and she lives right here in Maine too. Thank you so much Lee, it was a very sweet surprise!

The buffet is a chippy white painted dresser that I discovered was the same height as my kitchen counter top. So I filled it up with some freshly baked gingerbread men.
And a fresh cut spruce that I added as a table top tree inside my crackle painted urn.
Everything smells so fa-la-la- lovely! The scents of Christmas time gathered all together on my new buffet.
My glittered pine cones have a wonderful cinnamon scent as well.
I even have some paper whites growing in a Terra cotta pot.
My table top spruce is decorated with a few mercury glass ornaments.
I added some vintage and very distressed silver ornaments under a glass cloche atop a silver plated pedestal dish. If you look closely, you'll see a starfish and white sea shell tucked in along side them.
Truth be told, the gingerbread men you see in this picture are the first batch I baked. Today I made another batch and then I moved the contents of the buffet around twice. Just playing and having fun.
The day sure does go quickly this time of year. It gets dark here at 4:00 pm.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at what I have been up too. I hope your day was just as enjoyable as mine was!
