Merry Christmas! A White Christmas...

      From snow-capped mountain peaks.  It is a white Christmas!

All views I have taken from my front porch.  Didn't have to walk out in the snow for any of the photos.

                                                                                         Looks like Bigfoot needs to clear the snow.

Waiting for the deer to arrive and start grazing.  Hopefully not pulling up the tulip bulbs.  They love rose hips as well.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and any other wonderful time you choose.  May the next year be gracious and kind.

View of the front door.  I took the garland down to add some things and forgot to re-hang for the photo.  Probably forgot as the wind was blowing and there were snow flurries all about.

This coming year and real soon we will be adding to the family.  I will have two new grandchildren.  A new granddaughter and a new grandson.  That will be 24 grandchildren in total.  Love them all so much.

The mail boxes came in a set of two.  A life-size box and a 2 feet tall one that I can use anywhere in the house.

Please feel free to leave a comment below.  They make my day.  Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my blog post today.

Black & Gold Plaid Christmas Tablescape

Plaid is still such a trend again this year.  I wanted to do something a little different after I found these gold and black plates at Homegoods this year.  I combined the plaid with polka dots, stripes, and lots of textures.

I am using a mirror frame to anchor the centerpiece.  I think a tray, mirror, platter, or another container makes it so much easier to contain a centerpiece.  My frame is a very heavy metal frame.  It was a mirror from Pottery Barn.  The original price marked on it was $300.00.  The glass had a big crack so they had a price tag of $10.00.  I felt it was a great price.  Purchased at a PB/WS outlet tent sale.  It is the original color.

            Little desserts with a sparkle of edible gold glitter on them.

                            A deeply rich golden dinner plate.

     Gold flatware has a lot of texture that blends with all the texture in the plate stack.

My favorite prize for every Christmas guest.  A fun Christmas Cracker/popper.  Having scalloped edges on them to match the scallops on the golden dinner plate.

I love your comments.  Feel free to leave one, they are much appreciated.  Thank you.
