Gloria, you have so many lovely cloches. I enjoyed the visit and agree that it's nice to see so many browns this year. I spent the entire day working on decorating trees. Still more to do, but have to make a run to Container Store to buy more hangers. Very cold here today. I had a fire going and there were snow flakes falling outside the window. Imagine that in Texas!

Oh my heart did a little pitter patter at your sideboard...just gorgeous! xo Lynn. Buy yourself a white tree after Christmas and start collecting those gold and brown ornaments. How stunning that tree would be. I expect to see it next year.
