I wanted to share some pics from the book signing at Judi Perrotti’s Salon 70, two Sunday’s ago. (Couldn’t give an update last week because I was participating in the Seasoned Romance FB group special 3-day $.99 sale, which was lots of fun.) Let’s start with the book signing and then hit decorations.
You know having a book signing is a little like throwing a campaign party. You invite people. You prepare food and drinks. And then you wait, not knowing if anyone will come. The positive thing is whether anyone comes or not you’ve put the word out. A big thanks to Judi Perrotti for hosting.

Well, I was lucky, we had a nice turn out. I’m sure providing wine helps. LOL Lots of laughing and visiting, and we sold some books.
Selfie with many attenders. Think I need to work on my selfie skills. LOL
This is our first Christmas in the new lakehouse and lots of stuff in still in storage. I thought I’d marked the holiday stuff really well, but apparently not. I found the Christmas tree ornaments, but almost none of the other things I use to decorate—many candles, wreaths and snowmen. I think I must’ve gotten over zealous in the throwing out/giving away. I did find the collection of deer and moose and a two of our favorite candles.
The fact is, stuff we used at the Allen Place house just don’t work here, and we don’t’ need as much because it’s a smaller house.
So I made wreaths for the fence and draped lights.
I made a new wreath for the front door.
I bought a 4 ½ foot tree we decorated with our traditional ornaments & balls and turquoise bows of different sizes.
The two signs that used to sit by our front porch are now out by the walkway to the Boathouse
Bob got the lights up outback. We’ll probably always leave them up. Still need some on the rail for the dock, but maybe this weekend.
Not happy about the dining room table center piece so I’m not showing it to you. 🙂 Will do something different next year.
So are your decorations all up? I know some of you are beautifully decorated. I’ve seen your pics on FB. Did you add anything new this year? Is decorating something you enjoy or just a chore to do at this time of year? Do you have neighbors who go nuts with decorating? How many people are involved in the decorating, just you or other family members?Love to hear from you.
