December is my birthday month. A local restaurant sends a coupon for a free meal anytime during the birthday month (which is great for me, because MY birthday is on Christmas Day). Few restaurants that offer a free meal on a birthday are even open on my birthday.
We took advantage of the coupon for a mid-afternoon dinner today. I wore a gray sweater and my elastic-waisted black velvet skirt to best accommodate the shingles pain I'm still experiencing.
I brought out the red candles this morning and created this vignette.
It looks warm and cheerful when the candles are all lit...
I've hung a small "wall tree" between the two windows in our dining area.
I used vintage blue bulbs and other blue and white ornaments to decorate it.
All thrifted, of course!
The decorating continues--slowly but surely!
