Hello Dear Readers!
Are you dreaming of a White Christmas?
It’s been cold here;
however, no signs of snow,
which makes this former Florida girl happy!
Today, I am bringing back a White Christmas
flower arrangement to wish you all
a very Merry Christmas with a good news update.
I love collecting vintage ironstone, especially tureens.
I have quite a few that do not have their lids,
so they are perfect for displaying pretties,
plants and housing a flower arrangement.
The flowers I used are:
One Lily stem
The dining room truly was simply decorated for Christmas.
The table centerpiece started with a pretty gray
wool blend beaded and embroidered
table runner by Nicole Miller (HomeGoods).
I gathered my winter birds
that I have used for many years
along with a pair of acrylic deer,
that were also in my Christmas decor stash.
The White Christmas arrangement
was placed on a silver trophy platter
of faux snow (Dept. 56) and mini white ornaments.
When we were traveling for a tournament
and stopped in for breakfast at Cracker Barrel,
and I saw these pretty lighted deer.
The lights are battery operated
so they could be placed anywhere.
I thought hmmm, maybe in a tree for next year!
Hope you all had a great weekend
doing wonderful things all about the Holidays.
And speaking about wonderful . .
My surgery was this past week.
The surgeon said that my tumor was gone!
Tissue from the affected area was removed
and we are waiting for the pathology report
to come back in about 10 days.
It was a wonderful and encouraging day!
Thank you, thank you for all of your
many, many prayers and words
of encouragement. I am truly blessed!!!
I wish you all a most joyous Christmas
and here’s to a most fabulous New Year
and a great new decade!!!
