Wait! We interrupt this regularly scheduled post of Evi's home to add three more pictures of her beautiful home...a few with SILVER decorations...in honor of Silver Sunday!
Evi has some beautiful pieces of mercury glass and uses lots of sparkle in her holiday decorations...

And now back to our regularly scheduled post of Evi and Eb's lovely Holiday Home...
We had a delightful afternoon at Evi and Eb's magical home yesterday. Evi, a gourmet cook, prepared an incredible and delicious meal with wonderful home baked cakes and cookies for dessert. It was a treat to spend a few hours with such good friends in this lovely and gracious home... decorated for the holidays in Evi's distinctive and eclectic, elegant, European style... I took a lot of pictures but as always, one never knows which ones will be blog worthy.... So here are some random shots of their home, inside and out decorated for Christmas. All the Santas and dolls were handmade by Evi.
The girls exchanged gifts ... I will share those pictures tomorrow! I had lots of fun with my sister MB, niece Becca and nephew Joe today...they were able to use some of their gift cards at the mall and helped me pick out new frames for my eye glasses... ...so I should have a new, updated look soon! Have a good night! :) Laura
P.S. I amended this post this morning when I realized I forgot all about SILVER SUNDAY!
P.P.S. Happy Birthday to my fabulous father-in-law...who is 90years old today and happy and healthy and full of fun.....yes, you read that right... 90!!!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
