Christmas Around The Casa

2009 Snowflakes

I adore silver dragees.

The Eastern sun was shining through our banner reminding me of a stained glass window.

Silver dragees for each of my red doors.
Pearls lights surround my entry mirror, pink and silver balls nestle in a bowl, crystal drips from frosty branches and candles warm my entry.

Starting to set up my bar.  Very retro.

  1. Beautiful photos! Those cookies look amazing.

  2. Beautiful! I’ve been waiting to see those cookies. You are so talented:-)

  3. How beautiful!! Everything is so perfect. I love the bar area and your red door, just stunning! Now can you fly on over and do my house?!
    P.S. You should sell those cookies:)

  4. Gorgeous. I love the silver bell clusters! And the retro bar idea is so fun, too. Of course, the cookies are amazing. If you need a break from all that California sunshine (not likely, I’m sure), here’s a look at some east coast cheer. You’ll have to imagine the sound of sleet hitting the windows!

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Beautiful! I love your bar!

    I hope you dont mind but I save the pic of your cookies…I need to make some just like those for a friend’s 40th birthday party and yours are so perfect I wanted to use them as a guide!
