Oh, Bring Us a Figgy Pudding



Hello, Dear Ones! First I want to thank you all again as to how much you mean to me! Thank you for your kind words and prayers for our little grandbaby, Carter. As I type this, she has just left the hospital and is on her way home. She had a good night and they couldn't find anything just something viral and that fever. Hallelujah, praise God and blessings to you all! Now I feel I can breath again...

Okay, now on to the silly me...

Here we are in my little breakfast room and you've seen some of it already in my home tour but I hadn't shown you my table. It had a centerpiece of nutcrackers on it. But I didn't show it because Mr. Precious and Chloe Dawn had poked other things, not table related, all over it. Now you know it wasn't me who poked unrelated table things on it! :) Just sayin'...

So I had to make room in my little hutch, mainly on the top shelf, for the nutcrackers and they seem very happy here.

Now I can show you my table and please notice...no unrelated table items will your most gorgeous peepers peek!

First is my centerpiece with a tiny little Lenox Christmas tree poked under a cloche. Also a few sprinkled Christmas balls.

Just the cutest little tree I've had for many many years.

I threw down a red tablecloth and used my cheap, um, I mean inexpensive Christmas dishes I found at Target many years ago.

I liked them so much, I bought enough place settings for 24 people! I'm prepared for holiday parties! No paper plates for me. No, no Nanette!

I just love my little Christmas tree napkin rings. Got em at a thrift shop years ago. Cute as pumpkin pie, don't you think? :) Now you may ask, can you love little Christmas tree napkin rings? You bet your pine needles you can! :) I've used some napkins that are Christmasy but not Christmas. Make sense? ;)

My stemware gets used over and over again. I love them too and they just seem to go with everything. 

Right now these glasses are pretending to be ice! Brrr...you know how stemware can be! :)

Here's a little snap at night with the fire lights burning, well, I mean the votive candles.

Have a seat and I'll get the food. No, no Nanette, you just stay seated and I'll get the figgy pudding! :)

I just had to show you this snap of Mr. Precious and Chloe Dawn rejoicing after hearing 
about little Carter's recovery!




Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


I CALL HIM LORD

MASTER, REDEEMER, SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD WONDERFUL,
COUNSELOR, BRIGHT MORNING STAR
THE LILY OF THE VALLEY, PROVIDER AND FRIEND
HE WAS YESTERDAY, HE’LL BE TOMORROW,
THE BEGINNING AND THE END
BUT THE ANGELS CALLED HIM JESUS, BORN OF A VIRGIN
AND MARY CALLED HIM, JESUS,
BUT I CALL HIM LORD
JEHOVAH, MESSIAH, THE MIGHTY GOD AND KING
HE’S THE BREAD OF LIFE, HE’S THE LASTING WORD
OF LOVE THAT I SEE
LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS, THE DOOR TO HEAVEN, MY HOME IN THE SKY
HE’S THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS
AND THEY NEVER SURE WILL DRY
BUT THE ANGELS CALLED HIM JESUS, BORN OF A VIRGIN
AND MARY CALLED HIM, JESUS,
BUT I CALL HIM LORD
