Can you believe that last Saturday evening we ate outside? In December? Yes!!! We. Did.
We have patio heaters, so it was no biggie. But it wasn't cold.
Fast forward to Monday morning. There was a dusting of snow on the ground. And it was 16 degrees.
Now, I'm sitting by a roaring fire, have a warm drink, and feeling winter
invade come gracefully into my December!
Pulled out the winter sweaters and shoes this morning.
Now back to Saturday...
Red glasses just say Christmas don't they? Want to know more about the "crystal"?
I saw the "crystal" first on one of fav blogs - Sandi Coughlin's Reluctant Entertainer. One glass is featured in her blog banner. So now it's your turn... guess from which delectable store I might have purchased 24 of these? I'll tell you later, meanwhile, guess again.
I brought out the instant centerpiece - my pine picket fence box filled with candles, rocksalt snow and greenery.
Oh I had a moment of weakness a couple of weeks ago. Amazon to the rescue. New flatware... I
needed wanted something red. It always cheers me up!
I absolutely adore pinecones!!
So when I found these pieces at Tuesday Morning about a month ago, they saw me coming, jumped from the shelves into my basket. A set for 12. I rarely see 12 of anything there.. but there they were. 12 plates, 12 salads, 12 soups, only 6 bowls (frown), serving pieces... and these salt and peppers. They held me hostage until i was past the checker and were out in my car.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it. You believe me, right?
Each plate has a slightly different edge design. OOh, luv them all!
And the "charger".... a dollar wreath from ooh yeah, same place as the crystal. Guess yet?
I really was pleased with this table. Green. Red. White.
