I'm Still Christmasing With You and a Give Away!



Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I hope you don't mind but I wanted to show you a little more of my dining room ~ all ready for Christmas. I'm just a bit shy to show you my room after showing you my friend's beautiful home. I'm so glad you all liked it!

This is the view you saw in my Christmas home tour.

Here's a peep looking from the kitchen.


I kept all my white dishes in my china cabinet that I had during the fall. I just took out the fall things and poked in some Christmas things.


Here's a little view at the top! I poked up those three big balls and added a ribbon. I liked how it looked.


Here's a little peep at the inside of my china cabinet. This china cabinet is so special to me. When we lived in Roswell, New Mexico, I bought this from a friend who owned a furniture store and she was my best friend. It was my very first ever china cabinet.


You've seen this side of the dining room with my olden buffet dressed up for Christmas.


Then there's this side with Little Richard decked out for Christmas, too!


Here's my table softly Christmasing.


I poked down a very olden white tablecloth and then the fun began. You know how I'm all about the fun! :)




I used my Haviland Blue Garland dishes, white napkins and blingy napkin ring. 


Here's my centerpiece. If you visit me often, you'll recognize this little piece of milk glass. I just love this and use it so much. I poked in blue and silver balls to match the blue in my dishes and the silver trim.


Can you see my little salt cellars I'm using with the tiny little spoons? There's not salt in them yet though.


The sugar and creamer are so pretty, I think. I love all the frilliness of the design! Can you love all the frilliness of design of a little sugar and creamer? You bet you scratchy petticoats you can! :)


The salt and peppers with the covered casserole in the background. Silver and blue looks icy to me.


Blue, white and silver spells cold! Are you getting a chill yet?


I poked down my little silver sugar scuttle but alas, I don't have the scoop so I use a little sugar spoon. That works.


I'm using my crystal glasses with a candy cane poked into the tea glass. I just love this! Can you love a crystal glass with a candy cane poked into it? Well, you bet your ho ho hos you can! :)


Just in case someone wants butter on their roll I'm using my olden Fostoria butter dish. That's a little butter knife propped up against the butter dish in case you're wondering.


There you have it ~ every inch of my dining room. Now I've got to start cooking so I can poke down some food on those dishes! :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Merry Christmas, Darling


Greeting cards have all been sent 

The Christmas rush is through 

But I still have one wish to make 

A special one for you 



Merry Christmas darling 

We're apart that's true 

But I can dream and in my dreams 

I'm Christmas-ing with you 



Holidays are joyful 

There's always something new 

But every day's a holiday 

When I'm near to you 

The lights on my tree 

I wish you could see 

I wish it every day 

Logs on the fire 

Fill me with desire 

To see you and to say 



That I wish you Merry Christmas 

Happy New Year, too 

I've just one wish 

On this Christmas Eve 

I wish I were with you



Logs on the fire 

Fill me with desire 

To see you and to say 

That I wish you Merry Christmas 

Happy New Year, too 

I've just one wish 

On this Christmas Eve 

I wish I were with you 

I wish I were with you
