I alternated my chargers - 6 black - 6 green - since I only have 6 green.
I love the dishes. They are called
"Happy Holidays" by Nikko. I've had them for about 25 years now .. .
Love the scalloped rim of the plate, and the green edge.
And my Brighton napkin rings. My friend Connie P. gave them to me,
four at a time, each year for Christmas.
Perfect! Four years later . . . I have enough!
My mercury glass acorns are new this year.
And yes I'm a chicken.
I can't bear to light the ornament candles
because I want to keep them forever. :)
My reindeer box. Fitz and Floyd.
Isn't he grand?
For the two years I was PTA President, my Board gave me
all my pieces of Fitz and Floyd. Wait'll I show you my HUTCH!!!
(but that's another day!)
While we're here, lets peek at the sideboard . . .
My husband and I had a WONDERFUL time
hanging these mercury glass ornaments from the mirror (NOT!).
I am thrilled that I have been able to
incorporate more pink into my Christmas decor this year.
And without a single complaint from the men!
I have tried and tried, all different angles, all different weather,
all different times of day, and just cannot get a good
shot of the sideboard. Too much glare!
But my flash looks kinda cool - huh?
Finally, my teacup shelf. With my modest little banner that I made,
with just a simple message to all who dine here.
"Good tidings of comfort and joy"
Thank you to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for allowing me to join in once again with this fun party.
Before I forget! Lyneen - from Dreaming of Castles - is having a MARVELOUS giveaway.
And one more thing - I've found the cutest new blog (well, she's new to me!) Go check out Kendall at Finesse Your Nest. She has some wonderful posts!
And for a bit of Belgium inspiration this Holiday season - please make friends with my "old" friend Mieke at Arts and Herbs. She takes you on some fascinating tours around Belgium with marvelous history, that we just don't have here in the states.
I'm posting this kind of early so I don't forget!!!
Thanks for visiting!!! I can't wait to see all the other gorgeous tablescapes!!!
