Mr. N and I had Christmas at Thanksgiving with my children in Ky. So , Christmas day it will only be the two of us for dinner. I still wanted dinner to be a pleasant experience for my hubbie and I. Just because there is just the two of us, there is no reason the table can not still be set for a beautiful Christmas dinner. This is my first table scape I have ever done for blogging. I kept it fairly simple but I think it is pretty. The china is Old Country Roses by Royal Albert. I fell in love with this set the first time I ever saw it displayed in Dillard's many years ago. The flatware and the stemware is also The Old Country Rose pattern. The red and white gingham napkins were brand new , and was a yard sale find. I bought the two red candlesticks at a Peddlers Mart in Ky. I had the Santa Clause salt and pepper shakers for years, I am sure they are yard sale finds as well. The poinsettia bowl is a Family Dollar purchase. The two red glasses were yard sale finds. I just sort of took what I had and threw it all together for this tablescape. I am wishing all my friends in blog land a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Keep your family close and cherish every minute, because just the memory of Newtown makes us all well aware things can change in a flash!

Good Evening My Friends I wanted to share my Family Room Christmas decorations with you. I have been seeing so many beautiful decorations when I travel around blogland. I did not want the red and white in the family room. I wanted to tone the color down a bit and make it a little more calmer than the Master Bedroom. I don't know why but I fell in love with the coppers, browns and creams. I love the look of them all intertwined with each other. I also love glitter, and I think I glittered anything left standing this year. LOL I hope you enjoy! The mantle is my favorite vignette in the family room. The center of mantle consist of a plate I purchased at Kirkland's. I will most likely use it long after Christmas is over. I had the poinsettia's as tie backs in the Master Bedroom last year. I decided to use them to help decorate the mantle this year. The snow men are yard sale finds. The two Christmas trees are part of the Woodland collection at Kirkland's. The two star stocking hangers use to be black. I used spray adhesive and Martha Stewart glitter in the copper color. I think they match my whole theme pretty darn well. I just put a few of the copper colored ornaments here and there through out the arrangement.

Hello my friends. It has been a few days or weeks since I posted any updates on my blogs. You know how life is,goes by so fast and everyone is so dag gone busy. I wanted to share some of the photos of the Christmas decoration in our Master Bedroom. I wanted to post the tree but blogger was not allowing me to for some reason. Maybe I will just do a tree post later. I decided to go with red and white, traditional colors in this room. You guys know what has been going on in my life. Well anyway, I wanted the Master Bedroom to be bright and really festive. When I wake up every morning I can see the happy goodness around me. I hope you all enjoy. For my blogging friends who are struggling right now, with your health, and with other personal issues going on. Just know you are in my prayers every single day. I place my faith in God and he is a God that is fair and good. I know whatever the outcome of any situation, there is good that comes out of every trial. .... This snowman is another yard sale find! I think he is so cute. He is my favorite piece in the room. I love that is says Christmas snow factory. I just place a red candle stick and candy cane striped candle in the window above him.
