Christmas cheer

Before I share some Christmas cheer I should tell each and every reader (whether you comment or not) that I appreciate those moments of your life that you choose to spend here.

 I thought I would share my Christmas table setting today.

I started with a silver charger from a discount store and layered on my antique looking blue willow plates that I grabbed at World Market last year. The top plate was my great-grandmother's. The pattern is Penelope.

I have a charming collection of antique, mismatched napkin rings that I did not polish because I am lazy like the patina. In them is a different great-grandmother's antique linen napkins. The monogram is "B" "D" intertwined and I love them.

I kind of forgot about a centerpiece so it was ribbon candy to the rescue. I used the ribon candy as placecard holders at the kid's table last year. I love the old-fashioned charm.

Speaking of old-fashioned...
One of the perks of choosing an old-fashioned name for your kids is finding engraved silver "just for them".

I have a few "thank you"s too.

First, Leslie at Pillow Love by le-ka-lia interiors featured a piece of my art in a darling and well-thought out nursery. You only get a snippet here so go visit Leslie to see the rest.

Also, the ever sweet Kristen at Pursuing Vintage sent me this pretty blue and white bowl. You know how I feel about blue and white!

Posting may be a bit spotty during the next week. My husband will be on vacation for a well-deserved 9 days and I am thrilled for us to have the time together. I kinda like him.

Have a wonderful holiday!!
