You’re Invited…

Come in, sit down! I’m serving snowflakes with a side of sparkles.
Or perhaps you’d prefer just a warming cup of shimmer?

If the main table gets too crowded I’ve laid some extra place settings
over here. The elves will be along to serve you momentarily. You’ll
recognize them by the bells on their tiny glass slippers.

After lunch we’ll retire to the fireside where tiny kittens will snooze on our laps as we open
present after present. Don’t worry if you didn’t get me anything…I bought extras for myself šŸ˜‰

    I love that room with the fireplace. It’s snowing here as I write…I’m thinking a fire and cocoa are on tap for this evening.

    it is snowing here and while I was waiting for the “L” train I was catching perfectly pretty mini snowflakes on my red mittens!
    your post is just delicious!! I will take a cup of warming shimmer please, since I brought my own snowflakes, and yes I will share them with you.
