I love your dishes...I don't know if I saw them last year!

I just got my living room cleaned up and the bins put away. It looked like a tornado came through! Can't wait to see your tree!

XO,
Jane

Pretty touches of Christmas. Looking forward to seeing your tree decorated. Hugs, Linda

My kids are keeping me from having pretty things like this. For the next 10 years or so, I'll just have to get used to plastic cups and plates. Yes, you can pity me now.

Your table setting from last year is beautiful! It is so elegant and sophisticated. Love the gold and cream colorscheme too.

I have always had this thing for pine cones and acorns. I can't think why..but I do. The pinecones on one of your plates..HOW I would to have dishes like that. I am always on the lookout but so far they have not turned up. Your tablesetting is lovely! My poor table is still heaped with stuff..:( I need to speed up this decorating process.
Does this mean I am ...(heaven forbid) unorganized? The silver is another favorite, but to date NO silver deer! Just beautiful!!

Marigene,
Those pine cone plates are stunning! I missed this post last year so I'm thrilled at your neutral tablescape!
Ah~h~h...the joy of having a lower level Art Studio! No tubs upstairs...however it does look as if a BOMB went off down there! Time to go put unused things away!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Hi Marigene!

I love those pine cone plates! I am glad you posted that table. Mine is bare, and so is the hutch. I just can't bring those boxes up and start the mess yet. Maybe tomorrow! Glad YOUR table is covered!

What pretty pinecone dishes and the silver candleholders between the deer are stunning too.

It is fun to see last years as I missed many and many missed mine. (Or I just don't have that great of memory!)

Those dishes are beautiful! Our house is still full of boxes and bins and half decorated for the holidays! I just hope I can get it all done before Christmas is over.

I looked at this the other day on my ipad, but for some reason the text doesn't show up on your blog.
I hope I am not too late to get a chance on the soap!
Hope you got your tree up. We were gone for 2 days to the kids, and I am whipped!

Alycia Nichols said...

Holy Macaroli, Marigene...those salad plates are...are...are....I can't even think of the appropriate word to describe their coolness!!!!!!!!!! Hope your tree has come together the way you want it! :-)

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

Thanks for the heads up! I missed this one because I was sicker than a dog last week with a stomach virus. Of course I love the plates :) Last year, when I first saw them, I ran out to Home Goods and they only had two but I grabbed them.

I love your table! Those silver pieces look fab! I thought they were salt and pepper grinders for a moment! LOL... then I realized they were an ornament on a candle holder! Love the mix of dishes and the pine cone plates are awesome!
