Texas is cold like the rest of the good old USA! I am fine with it after all, I am a New Yorker transplanted a few times over.......
I decided today would be a good day to start blogging again. At least I'm going to try. I just have so many things going on here that I can hardly breathe ....really! I can hardly breathe my allergies have been terrible! Not to mention everything else but I wont go there.
I set a table for you today. Not the one with the dishes I had planned to use, this one sort of came about. Did I tell you have lots of new dishes that I have not shown you. Would you believe even though I was moving, I bought! Yes, yes, I am a true dishaholic! LOL I just can't pass them up.
The ones I am using today are not new.......just fitting!
Oh, this is my kitchen in my new, old house..........The dresser was mine as a child.
I painted it Annie Sloan Country White. That's another post.
I collected snowmen for years.
I have stopped collecting because I move a lot and I don't always have a place for them.
I am tired of having to hide them in a closet! I love their little happy faces. They make me smile.
My friend Judy and I decided to take a trip to another town in IL for the afternoon and we ended up at a consignment shop. To our surprise, she was having a yard sale. I bought four of these glass chargers for $1.00 a piece. We had a fun time. Do you just take off with a friend for a road trip?
If not, you should!
The snowmen dinner plate and bowls I have used before. I bought them in Buffalo, NY at Goodwill.
The salad plate was bought in Old Time Pottery in Illinois for fifty cents each. I went looking for dishes in Texas but again Goodwill & Salvation Army are a little expensive. If you can believe that!
These sweet little happy faces were given to me by my daughter, Jennifer. I have a set of four.
A couple of salt & pepper shakers all dressed in hats and mittens trying to keep warm by the fire.
My centerpiece, I took off my stairway for this table. I put it together with others for Christmas.
Of course what would my table be without my smiling friends........She is one of my favorites.
Another favorite! I just love her..................
Do you have favorites?
I just can't help loving some things better than others. I have lots of favorites. That gives me an idea for a post! Here they are two years ago in my tablescape in my Houston house sitting on my window sill. Darling aren't they?
Last but not least, I want to show you my stairway to a new home owners nightmare....more boxes!
I am still not done unpacking.......I will get to it........... just not too soon.
I have a lot on my plate right now. I have been trying to get doctors for humans and animals lined up and visited.
What a hassle.......plus unpacking, taking down Christmas, groceries and dare I say clothes washed, meals cooked and all that other fun stuff!
I think I'll just go and make myself some hot chocolate in a snowmen cup and put my feet up..............
I will be joining:
Tablescape Thursday at BNOTP
Have a great day!
Blessings My Friend,
