    The hubby has been sneaking onto CW looking for gift ideas for me. Clever man! I was shocked to open a gift containing missing sized Festivo candle sticks including that elusive 8 right one! I was so surprised.
    I used them all for the centerpiece at one of our Christmas dinner tables. (we invite everyone who has no where to go, this year was smaller at 25 people)
    I also included a picture of the bar, as we are getting ready. Yes, those brown boxes contain wine. No we did not drink it all, a large portion went down to the cellar. But you can see where I have put some of the pieces I have posted previously.

    I also included a picture of my other gift...Metlox Tropicanna pineapple vase. I found one of those two years ago, but it got broken and reglued. Apparently my lovely has been searching for a replacement since then. However I like the two of them together so much, will probably keep them both!

    Happy New Year!!

      Fabulous! I'm so glad he found what you wanted. It looks great and that pineapple vase is amazing. Metlox is not to be seen Down Under! Have a great countdown to the NYE!

      Metlox Tropicanna is not easy to find here either. It took him almost two years to find it. I am not a big fan of other designs that they have and have passed on some that I have ran into.
      Thanks for the compliments V! He did a good job this year ; ))

      Brat, he came out very shiny this holiday!
      GSOwl, I watched my kiddos like a hawk! Buffet came from an estate sale. I was on a walk and unexpectedly called the hubby to get over there with a checkbook. It was covered in old wax and he thought I was nutty.
      Cindy June! Hello!

      Wooooooow, you both are adorable! I love the fact you invite all those who have no where to go for Christmas!!! :) And your hubbie seems so sweet... such presents!!! :) (well, I cannot complain about the presents I got from mine... I guess they will make a perfect post No. 300!!! ).

      By the way, your Festivo post made me think of what just happended to a "neighbour of yours" from Naperville...

      I gasped out loud at that link Austro!
      Yes we have always had an open door policy at Christmas. The more the merrier!
      Hubby excelled in presents this year for sure. He outdid me by far. I was all set for music equipment then he said he didn't want it! My mind then went blank. Poor thing.
