{Christmas Time's A Comin'}

Christmas is almost here...And POOF it will all be over but the cleaning up! But even with all the cleaning up, packing away and turkey sandwiches for a week, I still love this time of the year. Don't you?



 I think Santa has already came to Nana and Papa's house though.




I bought myself a little Christmas present too...DON'T YOU LOVE MY NEW PLATES?



 I was so excited when I found these at Ross. I snatched all 8 of them up faster than you can spit! 


They look so pretty with my red chargers and Christmas dessert plates.
 

I decided to use my old bread bowl that was gifted to my by my grandmother. Her daddy, my great-father actually carved this old bread bowl. I need to try and restore it. Some paint got spilled on the inside years ago and it's cracking. But it worked beautifully for a centerpiece.
 

I love the red and white napkins nestled in the goblets.
 

My runner this year is three poinsettia place-mats. 
 


My little salt and pepper Christmas trees match my dessert plates. 


Yep, I think I love my Christmas tabelscape. 
 


I added just a touch of Christmas to my blue and white dishes.








A little Christmas added to my kitchen counter always makes things look festive. 




A Santa flower pot worked great to hold my red cooking utensils.


My good old faithful three tiered basket holds a few Christmas goodies.




Rudolph stands proud. Bless his heart, he is surely getting old but still loves to shine bright around my house. He's been in the yard, on the front porch, in the living room and I even think I had him in the hallway one year. He makes his rounds.
 

I hope that you all are enjoying the wonderful holiday season. It's my prayer for you all that God will show Himself mighty to each of you during this special time of the year. A time that is a reminder that Jesus Christ came that we might be saved. If Not for Christ....where would this old sinner saved by grace be?
 


May we enjoy the CHRIST in Christmas. Oh how He loves you and me!

I will see you all after the holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. Cindy, your table is really pretty and yes I do love your plates. I saw some bowls recently at Ross that had scripture on them. We are doing Christmas with our children and grands the day after Christmas and we are doing a Christmas brunch. Something a little different but I am beginning to like different in my older age. LOL! Merry Christmas Cindy.
