Fewer than usual ornaments were unwrapped to put on her. The crocheted angel still has it’s place on top.
Speaking of angels I have been on a quest to find angels that are not the sweet faced variety. I found this next angel at clearance last year and I appreciate the fact that the face is blank. I wanted to find angels that would have to say “fear not” when you looked at them. I suppose the sudden appearance of angels could also warrant the need to say “fear not”.
Our one big event during this Christmas season was last Thursday and from here on out we’ll be enjoying the quiet, cozy, twinkling of the season.
We had all the leaves in the table for our dinner event last Thursday. I bought this Lenox Laurel red tablecloth at Goodwill this year. It was long enough for our table with all the leaves in. There were 12 around the table and I had enough Santa Hat chair covers for 12. Those I bought at Target Clearance a few years back now.
Our table is back down to just 2 extra leaves now and that will be big enough for our Christmas festivities from here on out. There will be six around the Christmas breakfast table and six at our Christmas dinner table. This week is a quiet week at home for us but a very busy week at work for Dear. Do you have lots of gatherings this year or are you enjoying a quiet cozy time?
I’ve decided to share some snap shots of Christmas past and join in with Vee’s December Notecard Party…
Christmas dessert from 2009
December night in Seattle with the Space Needle through the boat masts at Elliott Bay Marina 2009. We were celebrating Katie’s completion of her degree along with her birthday.
This year Katie is turning 27 on the 27th of December. I guess we’ll have to do something special to celebrate this magic birthday!
Every day Christmas table from several years back. Things have changed in this room.
Thanks Vee, for letting me join in late. Today I’m trying to talk myself into wrapping some gifts. I’m also thinking I should choose some cookie recipes to bake. It’s raining steadily here in the Seattle area. How are things in your part of the world?
It’s time for Susan’s Tablescape Thursday!
This is our everyday Christmas table. I only set it for 4 for now because I only have 4 of the Christmas dessert/salad dishes. I enjoy using the more casual/fun Santa hat chair covers for everyday.
How are your preparations coming for Christmas?
Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
My girlfriend’s Christmas Dinner Table. I’d like to wish Ruby Tuesday friends an early Happy New Year!!
For more Ruby Tuesday please visit Mary at Work of the Poet.
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
