Christmas Eve and Sunday Morning Coffee

Wow. It’s Christmas Eve. It’s one of my favorite days of the year and I am thrilled that I have a refrigerator full of leftovers from our party last night!

Our party was amazing. It was so much fun and I was smiling the entire time since our family was all here. The Northern California family members didn’t arrive until Friday so I have been very focused on my grandson and party prep! Thanks for joining me today for Sunday Morning Coffee. This is a place to share, learn, explain, dream, and have fun.

About Me

I thought I would share some fun photos from the party.

Of course, these are all from before the party started as I am terrible about remembering to take photos once my guests arrive.

Someday I will get better and take photos once the party or dinner party begins. But I can promise you that it was fun and the food was amazing!!!!

My Latest Project

My Latest Project

I honestly cannot remember when my house has ever been this organized. I have spent a month getting our home ready for the holidays which has involved completely converting one bedroom, cleaning out four closets, cleaning out the entire third floor, and … are you ready for this … getting ready to move our weight room to the Carriage House!

I know you are probably shocked but we need a larger workout room which means we can convert the old room into a nursery!

So we have been working very hard reorganizing the house.

And I am ready to finally have my sale!


Well, the entire Carriage House is full of vintage, barely used, and brand new stuff. I love it all but I just don’t have anywhere to put it.

The Big Sale Here on January 6th

Tips to Buying a Vintage Chandelier
This vintage long table and eight chairs are for sale!

So I am selling it all. On Saturday, January 6th, from 9:00am until 3:00 pm. It will be held at my house and the date is definite.

(True story … my boys are waiting for Jan 8th to start moving into the new weight room in the Carriage House so this sale will be happening!)

I will start listing the types of items I will be selling but there is a lot of furniture, vintage items, bedding, vintage quilts, and more. And prices will be so that I can sell everything so they will be amazing.

I will make a weather call three days prior as it would be hard to hold the sale in the rain. But plan on this date for sure!

My Biggest Challenge This Week

I am making an amazing Christmas gift for my Grandson Graham (and Andrew and /?Charlotte) and I might have stayed up until 3:30 am one night this past week trying to get it done. I have a few more things to do today but it will be wrapped and under the tree. I promise to share it after Christmas!!!

This week's to do list.
  • Finish Graham’s gift.
  • Enjoy the holiday and my family.
  • Nothing else matters.

I am a huge fan of Melissa at the Inspired Room and here is her 2023 Christmas house tour!

  4. Awww what a sweetheart that little one is! And how wonderful that you get to have all your family with you. Your sale sounds amazing – too bad I don’t live closer – and the new weight room (and nursery) will beso worth the effort.
