Happy Week To Everyone. I hope that this week brings you lots of JOY. I wanted to share my Country Winter Tablescape that is surely given me joy this week. I did not want to put away my Christmas table decor this year but when my youngest daughter spotted these cute chargers at Michaels and pointed them out to me I knew a Country Winter Tablescape was next.
Incorporating my Deer and forest animals that I used at Christmas made me feel that I still had a little of Christmas lingering on my table.
I love these new chargers and what I really loved about them was the price. 8 of them for $7.50 at Michaels was the after Christmas sale price and wouldn't you know it...they had 8 which is what I needed.
As soon as I saw the chargers I knew exactly what kind of tablescape I wanted to do. My white platter surely came in handy for more than just cookies to nestle on. I was able to incorporate pinecones, small white ornaments and several mini trees. I love anything woodsy and country.
The small deer are actually salt and pepper shakers and looked so cute sitting on the little wooden pieces Marty had cut for me. The little buckets was found at a local dollar store and marked down after Christmas to $2 a piece.
My plates....oh I have loved using these plates. I found these some years back at Ross and I have loved using them. They are so versatile and I have used these lovely scripture plates with many tablescapes over the years.
The pinecone clips on the napkins was a special treat I found at one of our local Dollar stores and you guessed it....marked down for "after Christmas sale" for 50 cents each.
It's just a simple Country Winter Table but for me...it surely is bringing me much Joy this week. Amazing at how much JOY we find in the little things of life.
I wish you could sit at my Country Winter table and have a cup of homemade soup and a grilled cheese sandwich with me and we could talk and visit. Then we would have a cup of coffee or hot tea if you'd like with a slice of cheesecake. SOUNDS like a wonderful plan doesn't it? I hope that you all have a great week and would like to ask you to remember me in your prayers. I had cataract surgery on my "bad eye" as they called it this past Thursday. It was a much needed surgery and truthfully I was overdue to have it done. Left eye was covered 85%. Stigmatism has taken a toll as well. I will have the right eye taken care of in early February. I have done just as the doctor has ordered this weekend and have done pretty good but it sure is a big adjustment for me. It's kind of hard letting your surgery eye heal and not being able to see clearly out of the eye that needs surgery. Using readers to help me see and today is really the first day I have tried to be on the computer or do anything close up. I know it will be a big adjustment this week and I know that when the last surgery is completed in February that I will be so glad that it's all behind me. I can already tell a huge change in just being able to see colors differently. Everything is so bright...well, with my good eye that is. But, if you would, say a little prayer that total healing and adjustment will come quickly. My type A personality has surely battled the part of "Take it easy". "Don't do this and don't that". I am not much for that sort of thing....LOL! But my three daughters and husband has taken great care of me and spoiled me a tad. Maybe a tad too much! Come to think of it...I might need to MILK this a while longer. Happy Week To you all and may the Joy of the Lord be your strength.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
