Red and Green...

With all the holiday goings on I almost forgot it is time for Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps On the Porch. Please make sure that you stop by BNOTP to see all the other tablescapes.

We got up to a white Christmas for the first time since moving to Kansas almost 8 years ago! With all the drifting it was hard to tell exactly how much but it was about 7-9 inches. This unexpected "gift" changed our plans of going to friends for dinner. It was a very relaxing day, not doing much and definitely not going anywhere on unplowed roads.

I used the holly/berry plates that you saw a week or so ago...they were a Goodwill purchase.







Wishing everyone a very Happy, Healthy New Year and thank you, all, for making my first few months blogging so enjoyable!

Mimi1 I love this. I am always looking for a way to extend the red and green look way past Christmas. Why is it we see Red and Green and automatically our thoughts are diverted to the holidays? I want more of the red and green in my home.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Your comment was right on! I felt like crying to see this single mother thrilled to have such a beautiful coat, knowing she has sacrificed so much to give to her daughter. I love that my daughter is thoughtful as well and was happy to pass along such a find instead of letting it gather dust in her closet.

This is so pretty! I have those same plates and have enjoyed them for years -- I was so happy to add to my placesettings when I found several at our GW a few weeks ago. Happy New Year's.

Your red and green table is a delight. Always makes one feel cheerful in my mind. I shared a red and green table this year as well. Hope you have time to stop by for a visit. ~ Sarah

Your table is just lovely and I like the plaid very much.

So beautiful and just so right fot the Christmas holiday. I am so glad I got to know you in Blogland. This year really went by so fast and part of it I am sure was because of the fun we have had in blogging. I hope 2010 brings you and your family more happiness, love, peace, health and prosperity....Christine

Sometimes Mother Nature has a way of changing things up for us! Hope you enjoyed your snow days in... I like your table setting- the GW china would have been a treat for me to find. Our store NEVER has sets of anything. Just odds and ends of junk. LOL Hope the new year is a good one for you! I rang mine in by falling asleep around 10 pm. Must've been a hard day for me. *grin*
