Changes ...

There are so many wonderful things happening at Casa de la Vanderdogan, both in the interiors and in general. I received notice from the post office yesterday that the 700 feathers were waiting for my pick up, and once I get them on Saturday I'll start peeling back the layers of ideas in my head to create what should be a really magical Christmas display.

As I pull out more and more bins of Christmas ornaments and goodies, I am getting even more inspired. As soon as I finish up (hopefully in the next few days) I'll put away the bins and bags, give the house a good cleaning, and we'll start Christmas at Casa de la Vanderdogan, Friday November 27 with a giveaway, and a month of crafts, tablescapes, tree design, and more!

Of course, Scott told me that we'll be having Thanksgiving at the house this year - so I'll be posting that tablescape and the menu Thursday, November 19. The juxtaposition of the menu this year sounds incredible ... deep fried turkey (the first time we're trying it - so if you have tips PLEASE share!) and finishing up with pumpkin souffle with cinnamon anglaise!

More Updates soon ...
