Tablescape Thursday - Christmas

Hello Sweet Friends,

So how are things with you??

If you are like me they are probably quiet
with much less activity.  Went for my test
yesterday and then did some food shopping. 
 It was a nice day out. Cold but fun!!

 We have been playing lots of cards the last
 few days,  and watching movies. I was gonna
work on making a new window dressing for
my computer room, but I need some of the
fabric to cover my computer chair as well.
Everything I thought would work hasn't so
far.......and I don't want to cut the fabric
till I know it will work for sure......maybe
I will figure something out tomorrow!! lol

Well............on with the Christmas table.

These Spode Christmas dishes belonged to my late
Mother-in-law,  and my sweet sister-in-law gave
them to us. They make for a very pretty table.

This shows the plates a lil better!
I have had to really work to get the
coloring in these right,  for some
reason the green tablecloth looked
a wierd shade of green.

This is an overview.  Found those lil package
sprinkles at the dollar store and thought
they were so cute!!

I was just thinking I should have taken some pics
of the cute lil salt and pepper shakers.
 They have holly on one side and mistletoe on the other.

and the cups are so cute they have mistletoe inside the rims.

Love these napkins with the metallic gold
stripes running thru them.

Lately a lot of my pics are not coming out as well,
don't know if something is wrong with my camera
or if it is the photographer.........that would be me!!  lol

Just stuck this in so you can compare the real pic
to the next one!!

This has a fresco affect.  Only thing I have
ever liked that affect on!!  lol

 Here's the lil bear buddies posterized!!

This was taken from the other side of the table.

Bear buddies say
Belated Merry Christmas!!
make sure you go by and visit Susan over at
between naps on the porch to see more pretty
tablescapes.  Click Here!!

And We say Hope you have a
Happy  and Blessed New year!!!

Hugs and Blessings Galore,

Hi Nellie

Very pretty table. I like the green tablecloth and those beautiful Christmas plates. The cute bears just complete the table.

Looking forward to tomorrow the 31st (my birthday) It is our day off too. I am getting a massage and Marvin is taking me for a birthday lunch. We will stay at home in the evening and probably will go to bed before midnight.

Have a Happy and Safe New Year & God Bless you my friend!
Love you

Nellie - Happy Thursday! Hope you are having a great day. And that your holiday was blessed as well:) I love your table - and even thought the tablecloth was my favorite part..not sure what the exact color is but the color in the pictures is really pretty. Love the dishes - I have always admired that pattern and how special that they are family heirlooms!!

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and that you are anticipating a wonderful new year with family, friends and our Lord. So many new opportunities to serve Him more and glorify Him.

Always blessed by your blog - and inspired by your photos as well!! Hugs, friend. Jennifer

Your table was SO beautiful! I think I have the same tablecloth, by the way. You are certainly blessed to have those lovely Spode Christmas plates & I like the colorful addition of the plaid napkins!
