Red and White Like a Candy Cane...

Please join Susan at Between Naps On the Porch, along with all her guests, for another Tablescape Thursday.

You may click on the pictures to enlarge them.

I did a tablescape using the new (to me) plaid tablecloth I got Monday. Another boring red/white from my little house.

After taking a few pictures I discovered I didn't have the salt/peppers or candy canes on the table, so a few pictures are minus them.

Mikasa 'Salina' butter/condiment dish I found at Savers Monday.

Little pine cone salt and peppers.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! Your table is looking lovely and festive- I especially like the cloche with ornaments underneath.

Vermont is actually my home state as well- my husband's too- so that's why we're headed there for the holidays. I can't wait to be up there where you don't have to just dream about a white Christmas!

My husband and I both grew up in Chelsea. His parents are still there and mine now live in Tunbridge. I know where Springfield is as I've driven by there on 91.
