Ho Ho Ho

Santa and his friends were one of the desserts served at the Christmas party the other night. They were a big...little tiny...hit! They are marzipan and only about an inch high. The detail is amazing!

This is our favorite spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We order a little lunch from the deli and make ourselves at home. 

The marble in this mantle is so gorgeous!

And the oil paintings are equally beautiful...Mother Nature's creations combined with the artistic endeavors of man make for an elegant room.

So.....we added our own bit of mischief. Have you read this book? It makes Annie and me laugh out loud...and the illustrations are wonderful!

Hope you all have a great weekend....we're heading home.

Enjoy the day,


  1. Oh Robyn, what a magical place, love the picture of sweet Annie in front of the fireplace. Such a beutiful family outing, Blessings Francine.

  2. Wow, those marzipan pieces are amazing! Love the little corner where you and Annie sit. Looks wonderful! Safe travels home!

  3. Those marzipan are just too beautiful to eat, so much fine details. I love that picture of Annie hugging that teddy bear so sweetly. Does she has a name for her special friend?
    I love that marble fireplace. Such a nice place to enjoy your meal in front of a fire. Thanks for sharing again and have a great weekend.

  4. Beautiful interior, I love the wooden soldiers. I have a small collection of wooden German nutcrackers that really should come out of their boxes for Christmas. Annie is a sweetheart! Safe travels home. Greetings from Maine, Julie.

  5. What a beautiful place! Annie looks right at home.
    The marzipan goodies are too cute cute to eat!
    The gingerbread ship is beyond amazing!!!
    Have a safe trip home.

  8. Hi Robyn and Annie,
    What a wonderful place to "hold court" and just enjoy yourselves!! Between all the yummy treats and the "eye candy" you were in the perfect spot for the senses!!
    Another lovely memory to tuck away in your hearts!!
    Take care travelling home!
