Simple Christmas Tablescape

                                                          Hello everyone,
              I hope your week is going well. We had some rain again today and there is no sign of snow for awhile yet. Hopefully we get some ( but not a lot ) before Christmas..
                                  My lovely thrift shop mold made into a pretty centerpiece.
                   Today, I wanted to use my old green and cream tranferware dishes with silver chargers.

                                            And little silver Christmas napkin rings.

                                  Candles in old bottles add a touch of romantic charm

                                        I love these old transferware teacups

                                   Playing with my camera now.

                                          Christmas teacup.

               This little tree came from Winners a few years ago and I added some dried roses from a bouquet and some dried Queen Anne's Lace from the garden( a good tip from a garden visitor this past summer). I really enjoy my little kitchen tree . Soon we will be putting up our real tree in the library and I will share pics with you next week of it.

Today I am joining Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch

Show and Tell  at My Romantic Home.
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage.

Thank you for visiting,

Your little tree is beautiful, Carolyn! Such a great idea to use some dried flowers from your garden in it. Love the dishes! This looks like a perfect table setting for a cold and rainy day.

Ohhhhhhh, how sweet this post was! Loved the dried roses in the little tree. And the candles in the old bottles with a sprig of evergreen. Enjoyed each picture immensely. Thanks for sharing, Carolyn. Susan

Carolyn thanks so much for letting me spend the afternoon in your beautiful home and in your wonderful company. I loved sitting by the fire with your homemade scones and tea. What a wonderful way to spend a winters' afternoon.

So lovely. I love the look of white linens and greenery, and especially with the berries. Your use of the molds and old silvery pieces is brilliant. I always look forward to each new post and am never disappointed.

So pretty, Carolyn. Your green transferware is gorgeous and looks lovely with the natural decor. I copied your idea of dressing up the old bottles, I posted them this week, thank you for so much fabulous inspiration. You are my most inspirational blog friend. I learn so much from you.
Hugs, Cindy
