Metamorphosis Monday

I have been trying to finish off my Christmas decorating. I have found this a little hard this year as I have decorations at the farm house and also at the beach house and they all seem to be at the wrong house!! Talking of houses we’ve had a busy time this last week…..last Monday we were hit by a severe storm and it dumped 4 1/2 inches of rain – mainly on the farmhouse!! Rain like that at this time of the year is just what we don’t need. Harvest has come to a grinding holt and we’ve been busy doing sheep work. We had a quick trip to the beach house which was unexpected but nice. We received quite a bit of flooding in our house – mainly on the south side where our familyroom, office and main bedroom are. Carpets have been really soaked so we are waiting for our insurance company to sort this out. I’m still trying to finalise last months storm damage to our electrical goods!

In between all of this I have done a quick redo of the kitchen dresser with a few Christmas plates. It’s amazing how you get into the feel of Christmas once the decorations start to appear!

I was able to set our Christmas lunch table while I was at the beach house on the weekend so I was happy to have that ready and waiting!!

Wow.. I'm happy that you and your family are ok.. the rest the insurance can sort it out (sending little prayers that they do not drag their feet on anything..) and all will be restored as before.

Your china is brilliant I love the ribbon detail around the edge of the plates.
Stay strong ...xo and Blessings, HHL

Oh, Suzy...I am SO sorry to hear about the water getting into your house! That is SO frustrating, and I know it makes such a big mess. I hope you have been able to get most of it taken care of and that the insurance company will be fair with you. I'm glad you have the Christmas spirit despite the bad luck with the flooding damage. Your dishes are beautiful and you have displayed them in such a pretty way! Have a happy weekend, and stay dry! :-)
