Our Christmas Tree

Northwest Pearls: Christmas Tree 2015A few years ago we stopped putting up the homemade Christmas ornaments that us kids have made over the years, and bought matching ornaments from Pottery Barn.

We bought three sets of silver and gold large ornaments that look like mercury glass, and one set each of silver and gold smaller ornaments that also look like mercury glass. They're all currently sold out at Pottery Barn.

I love the look of the new ornaments. We also have some vintage mercury glass ornaments that we use but we don't have enough to fill up the tree so it's great to supplement them with the new ones.

Football Treats

My best friend made up some fancy treats for her game-watching party this Sunday. Aren't the treats cool? They were pretty yummy too. Northwest Pearls: Football Cupcakes

She made up two platters of these guys.

Northwest Pearls: Seahawks Player Cookies

Hard to tell what team we were rooting for huh? I'm not a big fan of football, but it was fun to watch the commercials and hang out with everyone.

Here's Marshawn Lynch with a skittle. There were a few personalized players.
