While we were home we shopped for a new dining room light fixture and an electric fireplace for our living room.
The fireplace is an entertainment unit and there are places for the cable box, DVD player etc. and some glass shelves on each side for display. Although I do like it very much it really was my husband choice. We having my grandmothers furniture reupholstered, the chesterfield in chocolate brown and two chairs in rust, both in a microfibre which is lovely and soft.
We had our kindred group Christmas Luncheon Sunday. We have a pot luck which always includes soup, home made butter buns,cold meat, salads, cheese and fresh fruit. Because it was Christmas we also had lovely Christmas Cookies, the batch above was Margaret's (in the red) Empire cookies.
We exchanged small gifts all of a quilty nature and I can tell you they were all lovely presents.
My friends above are Margaret, Brenda, Kelly, Sandra and Elizabeth. As I am moving to Peterborough next month which is about 2 hours away, I expect this might be one of my last group get togethers for some time.
I sure will miss them.
