I am buzzing around preparing for the upcoming holiday season. I must say I am delighted that fall has finally found Phoenix. I am finding myself drawn to various shades of cream, taupe and sage this year.
My preparations began with a thorough cleaning of Décor To Adore manor. Every cupboard and closet was gone through. Big piles of unused items are waiting for a Saturday yard sale where they will find a happy new home. Several treasures were put on Ebay and sold. I am also in the midst of lovingly packaging up my very appreciated Etsy orders. I believe I might need a few helpers as I have no less than 25 packages to take to the post office. Bliss!
After I cleaned the oven, microwave, refrigerator and pantry I made a list of fun holiday foods I wanted to see on the shelves. Trips were made to Fresh and Easy, Trader Joe’s and A.J. Fine Foods. This is only a bit of the bounty:
To keep up strength someone might just stand inside the refrigerator armed with a spoon and dip into the Fleur de Sel caramel sauce. She claims that it is also divine on apple tarts, gingerbread and French vanilla ice cream too.
Do you still need a bit of inspiration and motivation to organize and prepare? I found some lovely images on Pinterest.
