Watermelon Moon Farm .

We seem to be having a run of bad luck lately.
You know, the kind that comes in threes.
I desperately felt the need for a "lift", and upon opening my e-mail box this morning, there is was.....
An invitation to my favorite Antebellum home Watermelon Moon Farm, all gloriously decked out for it's Christmas Open House, and just begging visitors to enter through it's doors and step back in time.

Emily and Harold the most gracious proprietors, will no doubt be serving their specialty hors d' oeuvres and copious amounts of Spiced Tea.
The rooms will be brimming, with unique Christmas gifts all hand selected by Emily herself.
As an added treat, there will be a guest author, Candy Paull, author of several nationally published books, including her latest The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.

I have written about this gem in the countryside previously. It's historical home , cottage industry, working farm and bed and breakfast, are truly a delight for the soul.

I'm marking my calendar as I type.

Good for you! Sometimes a good thing has to come along when things don't feel so great. I hope you have some better days soon.

Looks like a beautiful home. I sure would love to see it at Christmastime. I've never been to the south, but have always wanted to see the old "Civil War" homes.

Glad to see you are taking care of yourself here! For my taste it's a little early for the holidays. I usually wait until Thanksgiving before giving it my all. Nice looking house, though, and I look forward to the pictorial I hope to receive after you've been there!

It sounds like it will be a magical time and I'm happy that your invite lifted your spirits.
I'm with you when it comes to 'old' things, are your familar with Tasha Tudor?

Did you say threes, Jo? I wish I could give you a hug. I can almost smell the spicy scents of the holidays in the Watermelon Moon entry.

I sometimes wonder why Britain maintains its royalty even today when their power is entirely (so far as I know) ceremonial and ambassadortorial. I can see how such would be desirable, but oh what a burden on the taxpayer, Elizabeth II alone being one of the very wealthiest women in the world.

Jo are you going? If so, I hope you enjoy it to the fullest! :) xoxo
