There's no place like home

We are back from our week
in the big city...

....and I agree with Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz

There's no place like home!!

But we really enjoyed our time visiting
friends and family in the Dallas area

The highlight of our stay
was our weekend with our
dear friends, the Paonessa's

Let me show you around
their beautiful holiday home

I love the breakfast area
the red dishes make such a holiday statement!

The kitchen was very festive as well

and the formal dining room
was beautiful

Carol knows how to set a table!!!!

They love to cook and entertain
so the above rooms are the
most popular at the Paonessa's home
But the rest of their house is equally as beautiful....

Tom & Carol have such a talent
for decorating

We had such a wonderful time
celebrating the holidays with
our dear friends

and as you may remember from
previous posts when hubby & Tom
get together in the kitchen
great food starts happening........

Every Little Birdie says

Check back later in the week
for my post on all the fabulous
food these two great chefs cooked up
for our special holiday visit
