Sunday Table

I can't believe how quickly December is flying.
Here is one of our recent Sunday tables.
This was a fun table to pull together -- shopping my closets.

Traditional Christmas red and green -- squares felt place mats, dishes and bowls.

Glittered pine cones in red and green.
{I was so excited to find this 'car/tree' salt shaker set
at our favorite grocery store -- so cute.}

 Holly and Flower (Ciroa).

The stemware was my favorite after-after Christmas sale purchase last year.
 $1 each!
{Their regular price was a little more than $10.00 a piece.}
Specifically to the 275th Tablescape Thursday.
Enjoy your weekend!

More Christmas in Our Kitchen

I love Christmas dishes!
{Possibly an obsession I can pin on my mother?}
I would have to say these are some of my favorites!
I love that they are uneven circles and more artsy than most of my dishes.
I love that they are made in Italy and look as if they should hold mounds of
pasta and delicious 'minestra maritata'
I love that they have three shades of green on them.
 I've posted about this sleigh before.
All of our holiday cards find their way to the sleigh.
We read them, share beautiful memories about our connections to
each family, and we pray for the people that send them.
We are blessed to have amazing people in our lives.

Christmas in Our Kitchen 2013

Our first Sunday table f or the month of December.
Chair bows are 'junque' bows made from old tissue,
wrapping paper, ribbon and vintage sewing patterns.
In our family we have a little tradition in December called 'red envelopes'.
Each night we find a fun holiday prep written inside our red envelope.
Tonight we begin our advent calendars!
