Christmas Decorating

decor-and-ginnas-007Our friends Ginna and Charlie in Tupelo, Mississippi, have the loveliest house decor-and-ginnas-004and it practically glows at Christmastime.  Their festive holiday mantle makes me happy just looking at it, although Ginna disavows any credit and says a decorating friend of hers put it together. But Ginna’s the one who bought the raw ingredients, so I think she deserves all kudos. We stopped by to see Ginna and Charlie this past Sunday afternoon in our search for dry martinis and good company.

Of course, Charlie had done his part by spending all afternoon raking and bagging leaves.  Let’s see, they had been busy and productive and had their Christmas to-do list all checked off, while my husband and had been driving around talking about all the things we had to do and bumming drinks off of people.
