Salutations Cottage Fix friends! How’s the decorating, shopping, baking, and Christmas shenanigans going at your place. We’re moving right along here. Give me just one more afternoon in the shops and my list will be completely checked off. I’d also like to bake a few holiday treats if this cold I’m fighting ever clears. Why in the world I get a cold at Christmastime each and every year is beyond me. I’m trying to stay peachy bright in spite though.My fresh garland did not make it. I had a feeling. The unseasonably mild temperatures we’re having left it feeling so crispy I decided to chuck it. It was starting to make me nervous to keep in the house. It’s forecast to be 70 degrees here on Christmas day so I decided not to bring in anymore fresh greenery. I brought some pink roses home instead to keep it looking cheery and festive in here for the remainder of the holiday season. Here they are on the sun porch in the wrapping area. I’m hoping their happy pink spirit will summon me to the wrapping corner to wrap. Pink roses do happen to have that effect on me.
Some of my vintage baubles are pink and a couple of the new ones look oh so shabby chic. So I thought pink roses would look nice even though they don’t exactly go with the original cottage look I was going for. But at this point in the game, who’s counting?
Thanks so much for visiting today!
