The weather outside is frightful.. really it's just cold!
The fire inside delightful.. Oh, the pilot light has yet to be lit
so... no fire.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...
Today I will just grab a warm handmade quilt ...
... and put it on my table.
This quilt was made by my Grandma Friend or Mom Mom
as we call her! Many of the patchwork squares were cut from dresses belonging
to my Great Grandma. I think it is just beautiful!
Time to set the table....
I started with these wonderful handmade Santa place mats.
I am borrowing them from Mom! They were a gift to her
from a dear friend in China.
The set of reindeer plates was a gift I received last year
from my sister's Mother-in-Law.
Each one is slightly different!
Each one makes me smile!
My centerpiece is a large ceramic bowl full to the rim
with poinsettias, fresh holly and new and antique Christmas balls!
My Santa snowman at the base!
