Christmasing in the Dining Room

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, come on into my dining room and see my Christmasing!
 This dining room is probably one of the smallest I've ever had but it works for all we need.
 I have lots of stuff and I poked everything in that I could.
 Okay, let's get down to the Christmasing. Just a simple centerpiece - a Christmas red runner with three cloches filled with Christmas balls and all are sitting on Fostoria plates. I poked in some wired ribbon and some greens.
 I like it. It's simple but I think it looks festive.



I poked a few greens on top of my china cabinet and changed out my dishes inside.
 I think my Old British Castles dishes look nice and Christmasy along with a few pieces of ruby red glassware.
 Just a simple little vignette on my buffet.
 This is my oldest Nativity that I truly love. Mr. Precious bought me this in Austin, Texas many many moons ago. I have such a joy each year when I take it out of the box.


The curio is a looking a little bit like Dolly Parton - top heavy! I just poked some greens up there and my Rooster is craning his neck to peep out.
 Here's another little look at my dining room. I have no drapes, curtains - nothing! I'm thinking since I don't have much wall on either side of the window, well, it's because I've placed furniture in each corner, that maybe a window valance would look better? What do you think? I'm still trying to get my new to me house 'fixed'.
 Just two last pictures. We have been having new friends over at least once a month for dinner and we are loving getting to know folks around here. I'm showing you my simple little tablescape for dinner. I had to take the cloches off as they were too tall so I poked down three pieces of Milk Glass and put some sparkly fruit in them.
Lots of Christmasy red and Christmas dishes and more of my ruby red glassware. We had a great time and we all felt the spirit of Christmas. 

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my table.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
