Touches of Red for Christmas


Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend.

I did a few more touches of Christmas
both inside and out here at our home.

A couple of weeks ago I found these
red with white flecks enamelware
plates and bowls at a thrift shop/
Since I already had a few pieces
and they were cheap I thought I
would add them to my collection.

                                                                 This Santa mug was also
                                                                 a thrift find last year.
                                                                   I don't collect them but
                                                                  couldn't resist him either.

We put our old handmade
table out on our south porch
for the winter and I have a
few winter/Christmas photo
shoots planned just for you!

Natural greens and berries go
well with my little
                                                        I finished doing up the window
                                                        boxes and urns etc, today and
                                                        the front veranda is looking 
                                                        Christmassy so all I need now
                                                        is a little snow!

                                                              I hope all is well with you!

                                                                    Take care and stay safe,

Hi Carolyn,

I am slowly getting there, too. Posted a little last-minute tea-for-one when I got peckish in the middle of going through the Christmas decor.

Looking forward to seeing your window boxes all dressed up for the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! : - )

Good Morning, Carolyn!
Ya gotta love holiday decorating! We all need a dash of cheer here & there, especially this year.
I really like your Santa mug. I have a couple of them, too, & hot chocolate just seems to taste better in them. Lol Hugs
Wishing you a beautiful day,

So festive. Oh, my goodness. We will be lucky to get a turkey on the table this Thanksgiving, it has been so hectic here. Christmas decorations? Well, they will happen when they can. :-) Thank you for your beautiful post. I needed the respite this morning.

Lovely, as always. I start decorating for Christmas after Dec. 5th. Always have. I don't do as much as I used to do but just enough for us.

I love the pops of red... definitely makes it seem like Christmas! And love holly and red berries. I used to have a holly bush which I loved. The enamelware is gorgeous! I would love to find some. I just love enamelware. Looking forward to your snowy pictures! It's almost 60 degrees here today in central Oregon and sunny! sure doesn't seem like almost Thanksgiving! Marilyn
