Thankful Thursday Dec. 24th, 2009 and a few more tablescapes

Merry Christmas From Our House
to Your House!

Morning Sweet Friends,
Hope you are all wrapping everything
up so you can just enjoy the rest of your
day and tomorrow.  I have a few small
things left to do,  nothing earth shattering.
We are having dinner tonight with Scott and Dee
 and a few of their friends and my sister-in-law,
so we are looking forward to it.  Dee gets off at
 noon and should be over shortly thereafter,  and
Scott will get off hopefully by 3:00,  and hubby is
 working at home today and will be off at noon as well.
Guess I had better get on withThankful Thursday
I am thankful for the Christmas Season
and all that it encompasses as we Celebrate
the birthday of that baby in a manger
who grew up to be the savior of the world.
I am thankful I know that Savior, Jesus
and the difference He has truly made in my
life and the life of my family.
I am thankful for my precious family
and the blessing that they are to me.

I am thankful for all the friends old
and new that the Lord has given me.
I am thankful for all my bloggy friends
who are such an encouragement  and

I am thankful for great food and the

Not everyone can say that!
I am thankful for my lovely home

no catastrophies this year.
I am thankful for the excitement and
anticipation surrounding Christmas,
that brings us so much joy.
I am thankful that I live in the
good ole USA,
I am thankful to be healthy for
Well,  that wraps up my thankful list
Hope you are thankful today too!
I will show you a few more tablescapes ideas,
this one is very easy yet elegant!

All you need is a platter and Christmas balls
and  candle holders.  I was gonna use
smaller ones that I had,  but then I
saw an arrangement on the BH&G email
that had stemmed custard dishes with candles,
and remembered I had bought these glasses
of a ladies brunch I had once and I had used
2 of the glasses as candleholders then, as well.

I was just playing here on my kitchen table
cause the other table is set,  so I don't have
a full table shots of any of these.


I remembered I had these stars leftover from 
the 4th of July and they were the perfect
shade of red.  I liked that lil extra bling.



Add a candy cane to the glass or plate

Well, that is it for today! Hope I got your
creative juices flowing!
As you are going about your day
remember to count your blessings
not the things on your list!!  lol
Have a Merry Merry Christmas
Sweet Friends!
Love , Peace and Joy to you and yours,
