Christmas Party Outfit

Last night was my annual Christmas party with some of my friends from high school. We all go to different universities so we rarely get to see each other. It was really nice catching up with everyone. No one else every dresses up, but I am always looking for an excuse to put on a nice dress.
Dress: 1950's Jonathan Logan Dress from an antique store in Orono
Scarf: A gift from my mother
Earrings: Red bow mini Christmas ornaments I stuck on earring hooks

I wasn't expecting any presents from my friends but a few people brought me a lot chocolate. I will be lucky if I can still fit into my dresses by the new year! One of my oldest friends (we have known each other since we were about 4 years old) also completely surprised me by giving me this darling teacup! I realised after my last post that I had completely forgotten to share with you my favourite Christmas present. My mother passed down this old family ring. During the summer she let me look at all the old family rings and presented me with my favourite for Christmas! Yes it is a mans ring. I have man hands and none of the women's rings would fit...
I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday! I have a few posts planned but those will have to wait until I have enough time to gather pictures.

That's All.
