Hello and Happy Holidays! Hope you’re well and will have some fun today. With our city in lockdown, Nick and I will be alone this year, but, while we miss seeing our friends and family and doing the usual festive things, we’re ok.
We have a white Christmas here in Toronto, as it snowed last night. It was perfect timing as it was the first we’ve really had this year so far. I can hear Nick outside shoveling as I type this!
We’ll be making a nice dinner of Coq au Vin and we have some delicious chocolate caramel Yule log cake from Dufflet’s leftover from Nick’s birthday earlier this week.
I was back and forth on whether to decorate for Christmas this year, as nobody would be coming over to see it, but, in the end, I couldn’t resist pulling out my tubs of vintage decor, to have a look at my treasures. Then I began sorting things into categories which resulted in a few vignettes around the place.
I made a video, which shows them off better than these photos do and includes more, so, please have a look.
