"Santa's On The Table"

I went with the same colors on dining table as mantel since they are in the same area.

Hey..Getting going..I started with the mantel.



  1.  I have always loved my deer

 I didn't cover the mantel with all the greenery this year
 Just a touch 
 But the deer did love the bit I did

I used the battery lights this year
 They seem to be looking good.
  1. I had to start and here we go!
  2. It is the season to be thankful and and happy and may each and everyone be blessed with the peace and joy in your heart.

My Last chance at fall

But, it is so cold outside today

 Thought maybe a little sunflowers would help
 Wanted to do a setting with my sunflower dishes
 The cold weather is coming 
 The table is set.
We are ready for a bowl of green chili stew 
 Little bird says she is cold
Ready for turkey to take over so she can go be warm.

How fun this it is to post my little messing around with my time that I have and what I do and hope you enjoy it also.
Bless you !

Good Morning

I was having a cup of tea this morning and noticed my flowers from Mother's Day and thought,  I have to do another post with them because they are so pretty!
 Isn't the orange bright?

 Old milk glass candle bowl.
 One of the roses is starting to droop...so sad!

Tea anyone?

Mothers Day Champagne Brunch

Mothers Day to me is special, I guess because I haven't had her with me in so many years. So, I wanted to do a special little table just for her..I went upstairs to my cedar chest and found these plates and thought.....maybe I can do something with them! I really could have looked deeper because I know there is a teapot and etc. in there but, to tell you the truth....my knees hurt.
I have to share this with you and I can believe my Mom is getting a laugh also!

I was trimming a large shrub and left too long of a branch sticking out I guess because I was going close to plant a small shrub and bang, I hit the top of my head and yes I had a knot on it..and it hurt. Then, the next morning  I was coming out of my office and it has had a step up for 5 yrs. but, my house slipper caught and I knew I was going down and hit on both knees...ouch!  Oh..wait that is not the end of my day! I decided I would go spray my new plants and bushes with watching every step I took.  I have the hose and ready to sit down and drink my coffee while I am spraying the one side and heard this hissing sound which scared me for a sec. a sec.  is all it was until the main sprinklers came on and drenched  me before I could get out of them!
So,  here is my little table as slight as it may be....because I dare not walk up the stairs to find anything else for you to see!     Thank Goodness the master bedroom is downstairs!

 Used my crystal candle holders
 I just love these beaded placemats
 Ah...with the candlelight.
The colors of the flowers goes well with the colors in the Bavaria plates, don't you think?
Champagne please!
The beautiful flowers I received today from my wonderful grandson and wife and my precious great grandson, Thank you!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Easter Everyone

Wanted to share a table I put together for Easter

 View with the oh so bright sun!
   The wooden bunny on top of basket.. seems to be running to or from something?
 I have trees that grow eggs?
 All the green colors go beautifully together in real life
 Darn camera's anyways!
 I got this basket with the bunny on top at an estate sale years ago and always trying to keep him safe

 I used the different settings on the ends of table
 Each of the little Bunny salad plates are different

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy Easter!

A Little Tweety

The weather has been so nice here (other than a few breezes) and it is getting me in the spring tablescaping mood and thought I would take advantage of it because, before long  I will be outside digging in the dirt. 

 Big Mommy bird guarding the nest and eggs! 

 The Napoleon Bee glass and of course the blue one is Dollar Tree
 Got these plates on e-bay (Hand made in Italy for Vietri)

 Love this time of day!
Thank you for stopping by!

Spring Fever

I decided I was tired of walking up and down the stairs and almost to the point of needing crutches :) or hire a personal assistant to find all the things I need for tablescaping, "hey" doesn't seem that bad as long as house cleaning comes with it. Wouldn't that be nice to have?  
OK, I am out of dreamland now and back to the thoughts I wanted share with you of what I am trying to do. Here is one cabinet I have downstairs that I store some of the dishes and glasses in.
 The two top side cabinets are glasses, cups and small items
Behind the six doors on bottom are sets of dishes.



 The glass door cabinet I also use for storage and change it up for the seasons.

 The top shelf offers a nice place for a little decor.

 The baskets also give a place to hide some small things..too!


I have two long closets in the upstairs hall that have been home to my tablecloths, placemats, napkins and rings, which I have brought down and now I'm putting them in clear bins for storage on some shelves that were put in for me...I will show you all that, when I get through.
This stuff never ends does it? About the time you get it organized...you go get more!
"Do you have Spring Fever yet" ?

Thanks for stopping by!
