I'm one of Santa's Elves!

Or at least I felt like a tiny elf next to this tall tree!
 
(I'm 5 ft 4 inches)
 

We were invited to a nice luncheon at Golden Ocala a few days ago.
 
This is a beautiful country club community
and the decorations were gorgeous.
 
I put most of the photos into mosiacs!

I’m joining Beautiful Sunday and
Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday.
 

For some reason Live Writer has decided to STOP publishing my posts so I am writing this in Blogger. I'm sure it will look different. SORRY!
 
Happy Holidays!

Diane, you and I are the same height. I loved those glorious decorations. My Lizzy would want those white deer. :):) Diane, the way blogger,google,google chrome, and some of all that techy stuff act...is exactly why my blog is the same as when I first started...one day I would love to make it over...just a bit...but I am scared if I touch anything it'll blow out to space and never be seen again. LOL. Wishing you and your hubby a great new week. xoxo,Susie

Very festive and frosty! Pretty!

September Violets said...

I think we all suspected you were one of Santa's elves already! You fit right in there with your white top. What gorgeous decorations! I love all that icy white & glitter. Something I don't think I could ever pull off in my house. I see "golf & equestrian club" on the sign ... did you see any horses there? What a lovely place!

What a lovely place for lunch, some of your photos remind me of pictures of an old English country house. I'd be an elf too then, I'm about the same height as you.

Cranberry Morning said...

The luncheon sounds wonderful with beautiful decorations. I'm an inch taller than you, which disqualified me from being in the elf club. :-(( Lol. Have a wonderful day, Diane!

podso said...

Lovely decorations. I was going to say all in white, but then there came Santa. I don't think I've seen a Santa in a white suit yet …

Gayle said...

Those are certainly beautiful decorations and you matched perfectly. Nice to see all 5'4" of you ;).

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

A white Christmas theme is magical and the venue was nicely decked out for the season.
I just saw a post about a change with Live Writer last week, will see if I can find it and email you the link Diane. I've always posted with Blogger myself.

What pretty Christmas decorations Diane. It looks like a Winter Wonderland :-) Oh, and I was wondering...Is it to late to let you know that I would like to join Wednesday Wee Ones tomorrow? I finally got a chance to make my dolly her Christmas dress :-) Please let me know.

Hugs and Kisses,

Susan said...

I'm not decorating, other than a wreath on my door, because of three very active kitties that were bestowed on us. I miss my Christmas tree, but at least I can come to your site and get my Christmas spirit, my little Elf! XOXO

Dorothy Crutchfield said...
