Making the House Festive









When the holidays bring dinner parties and Christmas dishes to our home, the reality of being a housewife hits me. It is true. I have a house, and I am a wife. And I throw dinner parties now. I am not sure how I feel about this. Despite the fact that I have a job(s) and do not have any children yet, the title makes me feel a bit...matronly. I found myself actually having fun decorating the dinning room table and arranging poinsettias on the mantle. I had a little help from the kitties :)

Your house looks great. I like to think of the housewife title as more of an all-encompassing role like -- decorator, caterer, menu planner, designer -- those words are so much better than housewife ... Merry Christmas, Emily

Oh, wow! I love the decorations in your home. And I love that candle holder (I think that's what it is...)

Hey Emily!

Good job on these shots. Love the red wall. :)

In other news, I also made a blog... you'll have to check it out. It's rlizwatson.blogspot.com. I'm having some trouble adjusting the html to allow posting wider shots, and was wondering if you could give me some pointers?

Thanks!
