Good morning! I won’t begin with the Christmas countdown because if you are like me you are wondering where the time went. I swear just the other day I was relishing Fall and in the blink of an eye it is Christmas.
Christmas decorations and window displays are one of my favorite memories from childhood. This week Sandy from You May Be Wandering has been featuring the beautiful and imaginative window displays from the biggest department stores in New York; my favorite so far are the windows from Lord and Taylor.

Although I have been enjoying all of the beautiful Christmas posts filled with scrumptious recipes, tasty treats, stunning Christmas decorations and fabulous DIY inspiration; there is so much stuff that it is easy to get lost in it all. Leslie at Gwen Moss posted a excellent reminder this week on the reason for the season and The Gift of Simplicity

Speaking of the art of simplicity, this easy and delicious cocktail from The Glitter Guide has me intrigued. I think I will be trying this tonight.

I will also be making this Fontina, Pear and Caramelized Onion Galette from Wisconsin Cheese Talk, doesn’t this look delicious? Anything that contains cheese and caramelized onions is a favorite of mine.

Are you finished with your shopping? If not, Pamela at From the House of Edward has published a three part book list for all of the men, women and children on your list. I found a few books on the list that I am gifting myself.

I may have mentioned once or twice that although I love Paris, my heart belongs to Scotland. It is actually a dream of mine to move there, but that is a story for another day. This week Di from Yonks is traveling in Scotland and as usual her photos are stunning and her writing witty. I hope that someday soon she publishes a book of her work.
I wish you are wonderful weekend. Enjoy the magic of the season, soon it will all be over.
