A few pretties and the Golf Cart Parade

I have a few favorite things here


and there throughout the house.


The candle holder in the center has a paper tag, Hong Kong.


I almost got rid of the plastic greenery because I love the white metal so much...but then I just couldn’t!


I love lots of candles...


and cards in an old vintage sleigh....


and books and mice!


We had a fun time at the Golf Cart Parade!


Have you ever seen a Golf cart decorated?


Whoops...don’t look kids!
