A pretty poinsettia.
My Advent "wreath." OK - I know it's just four candles on a round tray, but I'm happy that I actually had purple and pink candles! No greenery, yet, but I love the purple silk fabric, although now I realize I should have fixed it so that it didn't look so lumpy in the picture. And I also just realized you can hardly see one of the purple candles - but it's there, peeking up from behind the pink one.
I caught Bud, The Little Dog, in the middle of The Boy's bed, a definite "no-no" for him. Can you tell he's trying very hard to be so small I don't notice him and make him leave his nice warm spot? Nice try, Bud!
