Poinsettias Galore


One yard sale a few years ago offered slim pickings.

There was nothing one couldn't live without so I got ready to bust out of the door.

Then I saw it! 

It was a lovely old white tablecloth with a pretty red poinsettia border, holiday bells and greenery.

The $2.00 price tag was almost too good to be true.

It saved the day!

It's honestly become one of my favorite holiday tablecloths.

It doesn't even matter that it has to be washed pretty frequently.

When it's in the washing machine, I simply put another holiday cloth on the kitchen table.

We Three Kings....





At a resort estate sale awhile back,  a handsome set of nativity figurines came home with me.

It was noted that the resort owner used to buy several sets of these, made in the Philippines, and gave them away as gifts at Christmas time.

This year, the figures, Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the three kings,  grace the front hall table.

Usually, there is a scented candle burning in front of them.

 Right now, the air is filled with the fragrance of spiced apple.

While I have accumulated several manger scenes throughout the years, this one is one of my favorites.

If interested, you can read more about it here.

Table Setting in Miniature....

 
Regular readers of this blog know that one of my all time favorite hobbies is dollhouse miniatures.

A couple of years ago, while traveling in Colorado, I shopped at Norm's Dollhouse. 



I bought a beautiful set of tiny rose-themed dishes and minuscule pink glasses!

When I got my late mother's curio cabinet, one of the shelves seemed like the perfect place for a miniature scene.




It has a mirrored background so everything looks double!

My regular dollhouse is charming but not very big.

So today, I am so happy to share my dining room table in miniature.



And just in time for the Christmas holidays, I added a little cabinet filled with a tiny Santa collection.


I made the lacy tablecloth.


Looks like the  dollhouse residents will enjoy some fine dining coming Christmas this year.
