Twas the night before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house all creatures were stirring even Miss Mouse.She placed the treats beside the tree,a plate full of cookies and a hot cup of tea.
Peanut ,peppy and Bambi were snug in their bed with visions of treats danced in their heads.
And just as I was about to sleep we heard such a clatter .We ran to the window to see what was the matter.

Up on the roof top was Santa and sleigh eight raindeer in the snow.There was Rudolph his nose all aglow.
Just as  we were turning around down the chimney he came with a bound. He wiggled and giggled with a hohoho heeheehee and went straight to the tree and bent down on his knee. Pulled gifts from his bag and put them under the tree and laying a finger aside of his nose up the chimney he rose.We heard him explain as he drove out of sight Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     d

Kids christmas table.

It's always nice to have the children have their own table set with kids in mind. the snow man dishes were gotten from thrift store. The tree I've had and sprayed it with a little snow.and put kid ornaments on it.The  gingerman houses are edible. The Blue dishes under snowman plates are plastic. The ornament I made into name tags. the little pails with snowmen are gifts. I love the candy stripe place mats and runner home made from thrift shop.I changed candy stripe candle with gold wreath. I used paper napkins and put them in mugs.

Just a little apple plaque spells country

White table cloth with a square of apple cloth like the napkins I made.  Red candle holder and apple salt and pepper

We had a bountiful year on my two apple trees. Grannie smith and  don't know the name of the red apples but they are sweet and delicious. The apple dishes I have had for a long time some from the dollar store.

Going green thanksgiving

I am going green.  I am using dishes I bought as a young housewife over 45 years ago.  they were called Ye olden days.  Each dish has a different old  picture.We used them only on Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I have a set of eight but now only set for two. We always had ice water with our meal. Our menu was usually always very traditional but plain.  No decor but lots of food and good chats.I used to think how long it took to make this meal and how quick they all ate it because the men didn't want  to miss the football game. Now I eat special occasions with my son and family who live on the street in back of me.The two  girls now are living in other states and loss of loved ones our table has gotten smaller. My grandson will be home from collage .  I am thank ful for them all.

I live near the beautiful majestic river in the 1000 Islands so thought it would be appropriate to do a nautical tablescape..
