T'was Two Weeks Before Christmas







T'was two weeks before Christmas, and all through the house, gowns were flying and shoes to match.
Had a party to attend on Friday eve, with all my colleagues, doctors, and spouses.
The party was at the" Mansion" (Radley Run Country Club) , snow, sleet, and rain, could not keep me away.
As I ran to my car to leave the festivities, visions of yard sales, tag sales, and estate sales danced in my head. For tomorrow is Saturday.
I climbed into bed and waited for the alarm. It struck at 7am and I flew to the shower. Only two yard sales was all the time I had. With my husband close behind, we headed out , coffees in hand.
Christmas decorations the theme of the day. From elves to choir boys, they all sang.
Back home again to gowns and shoes, off to "The Belvedere Hotel" ( Baltimore Maryland), for yet another party to attend.
Visions of yard sales danced in my head, but Sunday was spent driving home once again.
As I lay down for my nap, I dreamed of lights and trees, and awoke to get ready for the Kennett Candlelite ( Kennett Sq. PA) tour.
And what should my wandering eyes shall I see? But houses and houses decorated to the T.
People bundled all up from head to toe, and walking from home to home. The lights and the trees all pretty as can be.
Then off again home, to climb into bed, and dream of the Christmas Cards I forgot to send!




PS I can not take credit for the antique floor lamp turned into a coat rack by the door. Karla from Karla's Cottage came up with the idea. Posted on her blog, she had one in her bathroom, as a robe rack. I did however make mine from old lamp parts, an upside down sugar bowl and pearl buttons. Please check out Karla's. It is a fantastic idea. Dona

Hi Dona, your post is so cute. What a great weekend you had the parties sound like they were fun.
I love all the collectibles and what a clever idea for the coat rack....I thought that was a sugar bowl on top, I like. Linda
