The fireplace is finally, finally done. NOT fooling with it anymore. :) Still have to decorate the tree..but I'm willing to bet you've seen a lot of those already. The only thing that has changed about my tree since the 1950's is that I no long use tinsel.
Also...I love Prims. Not doing the rustic Country style but some of the Prims are just too darned cute! I found the old wood wagon at a garage sale last year..the Santa on Ebay last year also.
Here I am at this ripe old age and still have no clue as to what my style is...
..and also....This is probably one of the few idea's I had that I didn't see anywhere else..but now I see it every now and then on someone's blog. I love it, and since I have a couple of cake plates..an extra I can use for desserts..I can keep plates here and change with the seasons.
Also, I am really hooked on "spooners"..I love the look and the convenience. Is it...because I'm always ready to eat??
Never mind that....
Silverware is courtesy of garage sales! Now collecting that is something I haven't given up. I always have my eye out for old silverware.
It poured rain all day long today so no garage sales this Friday or Saturday. Cold and wet outside.
Are you sending cards out this year?
I'm sending a few. I've got to hustle on that one too.
And..I also have to finish a tablescape...yep...soon...but..PH eats and reads his paper at this table every morning when it's cold out.
I cover the end with another every day tablecloth..put his little lamp on it...and he's all set. *smile* A problem moving all the dishes and silver tray etc. ?? Heaven's NO!
The maple dining room set was Howard's. Mine? It's still in the garage. This one is very retro and I love it. Well..but then so is mine. What to do..what to do??
Also I want to add that I dearly LOVE snowmen! I always start collecting things..and then give it up and move on to something else..not so with snowmen.
Do you know how many lamps I have in our family room...hmmmmm? Nine!! I know! I know!
It's a lot, but I DO love lamp light. (I know..nothing at all to do with anything!)
Diane of The Blue Ridge Gal asked on her blog if we had caught the concert at Madison Square Garden last night. (the night before last..it's after midnight here) Yes. Yes I did. And...did we donate..and yes, yes I did.
Do I appreciate what I have? You bet I do! I realize that everything I have, everything I have collected over the past 50 years could be gone in nothing flat! I live in Southern California RIGHT ON THE SAN ANDREAS FAULT LINE! One day we here in California might need help...it could happen to any of us.
