Christmas in Kennebunk

We headed to the beach for Christmas prelude 
in Kennebunk Maine

We got up early and hit all the sales and ate our way though
each store. 

Left to right My sweet friend Cathy, My daughter Ashley, and a horrid picture of myself. we are all sporting sparkly reindeer antlers. 

I took a couple of extra days off to fit all the fun in
and to have a day of rest after. I finished the mantle it's a wooly one.

Between two friends I have lots of berries
and holly.

To make the house very festive.

This is the only tree I have up so not sure when I am going to get the time to put the big one up, every weekend is spoken for from now until Christmas.
I have been pretty sick and the meds I had to take kicked my butt but I am on the mend now just tired and of course running around all the time doesn't help.
I hope you are all well and enjoying the season.

Your mantle is fun and I love the arrangement in your white ironstone pitcher.
Sorry to hear you've been sick but happy to hear you are on the mend.
Hugs :)

Sounds like a fun mini vacation. I would love to head north over the holidays but it might be too cold and if I could fly, I would head south till I hit warm sun, lol. Your mantle looks wonderful and I love boughs and berries, it warms up the home. I need to get out and cut some berries off the fence.

Your mantel looks very nice and the winter berries adds a warm holiday touch to your decor.
Getting away with the girls was a great idea.

Have a great day.

Very festive mantle decorations and the tree is right down my alley. I made a small feather tree a few years ago and that is the extent of my tree for the house. Hope you are back at 100% soon so you can enjoy Christmas.

Great time and beautiful decorations! I have friends that like to come and cut fresh pine from our can too anytime... and I take advantage of that too. I have 2 holly bushes and have snipped a few branches also! I do hope you're feeling better and hopefully won't miss any of the Christmas fun you have planned! Take care!
