Christmas in the Breakfast Room

Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm bringing you into the breakfast room today to show you my little tablescape.

 Don't you just love these little glitter houses? Oh, I adore them. I found them at Marshalls for $6.99 each! They light up too and I thought they would be perfect for my little table.

 Here's a closer look.
 See the little puff of smoke coming out of the chimney? 
I love this stuff.
 I was thrilled to find this little church and look at the music ~ joy joy!
How great our joy!!
 One more look at my centerpiece.
I've been seeing these little dishes all around Blogland. 
Found mine at Wally World!
 I bought two different salad plates to make it look a little more interesting.
I'm so talented like that, you know! ;)
 Just love these little sweet dishes.
 I also purchased these sweet little cardinal salt & peppers. 
Perfect!
 I'm using my ruby red glasses that I've had for many many years.
 A little blurry, but I've used my Christmas trees napkin holders with non Christmasy napkins.
Works for me!
 Love these olden vintage tablecloths and I think my curtains look all Christmasy too.
Here we are at night time and all lit up!

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Up On The Housetop

Up on the housetop reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for the little ones, Christmas joys
Ho, ho ho! Who wouldn't go? Ho, ho ho! Who wouldn't go?

Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down through the chimney with old Saint Nick

First comes the stocking of little Nell
Oh, dear Santa fill it well
Give her a dolly that laughs and cries
One that will open and shut her eyes
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go? Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go?

Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down through the chimney with old Saint Nick

Next comes the stocking of little Will
Oh, just see what a glorious fill
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks
Also a ball and a whip that cracks
Ho, ho ho! Who wouldn't go? Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go?

Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down through the chimney with old Saint Nick

  11. Oh, Shelia! This is so, so, so cute! And I can't believe you found the church and the house with NOTES on them! That is like a special gift from God! We have the same tall goblets... Mom gave me a set a few years ago. We could throw a party together!

    I love the Wally Wold dishes. They look like a Currier and Ives print!

    Great table! Mine is still the same as yesterday so you get a pass! ;-)

    Love you,

    Shelia

  20. Hello - It is my very first time stopping by your blog (popped over from BNOTP) and I just love your table setting and your sense of humor! I, too, bought some of those plates this year. And I have a little "putz" house on a bed of snow in a big glass jar. Oh, and vintage tablecloths are the best!

  28. Merry Christmas Shelia. I have been having a catchup on posts and have really enjoyed your 'city' posts as well as your 'Christmas'ing. The pictures of (mostly) Carter and wee Camp opening their Christmas parcels are so sweet. And I do love your tablescapes, you are so talented.
    Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas and all you wish for in 2014.

    blessings,

  50. I absolutely LOVE those little houses! We have made little gingerbread houses for our fireplace mantle from gingerbread brown cardstock but they are not nearly as beautifully decorated as yours ;o) Thanks for the inspiration! Just popping in for a quick holiday visit from Katherine's Corner Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop. I look forward to connecting with you again after the Christmas holidays, every Thursday at Katherine's Corner! See you soon, Nina @ mamas*little*treasures
