I cannot believe this will be Felicity's third Christmas! This silly photo below was taken on her first Christmas and is still one of my favorite pictures of her....
Now this year she seems so big, running around helping me decorate the tree!
I hope we can make Christmas decorating together a tradition that will last as long as possible.
I also hope I can pass on to her my love of my vintage and antique pieces, like my grandmother's old Christmas ornaments.
We used some of my old ornaments to make a simple little centerpiece for the dinning room table this year.
Every year when I pull out these old pieces I feel so nostalgic, remembering always seeing these on my Nanny's tree as a kid... this year I actually shed a few tears, I'm a sap like that sometimes.
I wish I could say the silver tray I used for the centerpiece was some old family piece passed down, but it actually came from Goodwill. I paid a couple of dollars for it and it's one of my favorite Goodwill finds ever.
I love how the little flame of a candle suddenly makes everything so elegant!
Unfortunately our candles never stay lit long, because as soon as Felicity notices they are burning she blows them out =)
We've fancied up the rest of the house for Christmas and I really love how it looks. As soon as I get pictures finished of it all I will post them.
Also, you can still use the temporary discount code for our store www.InspiredByFelicity.com
and all orders at this point are still guaranteed to arrive by Christmas.
Felicity & I made these balsamic roasted Portabella Mushrooms from Good Life Eats
yesterday for lunch and they were delicious! I think I will be making them regularly now.
They are super quick, easy, healthy & even Felicity loves them - you can't beat that.
