More cushions ... but this time not for me

Its a busy time of the year for us. Jewish New Year begins tomorrow night and we are hosting a dinner for 26 people. Among those 26 are my niece and nephew who each have birthdays this week.

For my niece, who is turning 40, I asked her to chose a colour scheme and she chose "dark red and burnt orange".

Kaela's cushions 

I couldn't resist throwing in a touch of pink. (I just can't help myself).

And for her 'little' brother who is taller than both of us ... 

Route 66 cushions 

He's just moved into his own place for the first time and is rather car crazy (to put it mildly). 

"Shana Tova"  to those of you celebrating this week. And a happy new year to all! 
May the coming year be sweet, healthy and peaceful.

WOW. 26, you say? Judging from the wafts of cuisine I have experienced standing but once in your kitchen, you would have had it all covered.

Shana Tova, excellent lady.
