Tablescape Thursday and more…..
Susan at Between Naps on the Porch hosts Tablescape Thursday each week. If you have not seen her blog, you really must. She is truly the hostess with the mostess.
I am sitting in my chair in my soon to be completed studio/office/guest room. There seems to be some semblance of order in the room itself but the guest bathroom is off limits (no media) and shall be for a while. Susan Boyle is singing softly in the background and I have some Christmas music to play as well.
The embroidery machine has been busy. Tea towels and snowflakes are wonderful presents. I shall try to make one a day until Christmas. I use the snowflakes on the Christmas tree. I place them on the boughs just as if they had just landed.
I have quite a few different snowflake designs. Some I do in white and some in ivory. I like to mix them up. The days of the real tree are over. I don’t miss the needles until April but I do miss the wonderful smell. Our tree is a tabletop model and works quite well. I set it on a round table covered with a Christmas quilt made just for that purpose.
I decorated the Welsh cupboard and the coffee table.
A big glass jar holds some of the ornaments too large for the tree.
Then I started on the table. This setting is just the holiday setting. For Christmas Eve and Christmas Day there will be different ones. I haven’t decided what but it is still early……
So that’s what I have been doing. Now I have to go and say hi to all of you who have been stopping by and leaving wonderful comments while I had that bug. I will take some more pictures as well.
