I’ve lived in the Texas Hill Country all my life, and I love nothing more than decorating for the holidays at my Around-The-World Cottages. I like variety, so I hang wreaths in the windows of the Paris cottage, use icicle lights on the Venice cottage, multi-color strands around the Barcelona cottage, candles on the Athens cottage windowsills, you get the picture. Glenda and Thomas, who have worked for me for years, plus my niece Sabrina Tate, are all a big help. This year, though, we have an extra hand – or should I say paw – in the mix. I’m not sure Hitchcock the cat helps more than he undoes what we’re trying to accomplish.
