This is for my mother in law because she is not on facebook and will not have seen these photos, also the Nesting Place is having a Christmas 2010 Tour of Homes. So I thought I may as well post something here – it has only been a few (cough) months!
I should add that the large vase under the mantel is no longer thanks to a stray basketball in the house! Thankfully no one was hurt despite the huge amount of broken glass and I only lost one bauble too! The rule ‘no balls in the house’ is now being taken seriously.
