Winter Picnic




          Hello everyone,

We finally got a dusting of snow here
Monday night so I was happy to get
some outdoor shots before it melted
as it rained the next day.

A little winter picnic is always
fun.
Hot cocoa on a winter day
is a treat to me.


I found this enamalware pot
at the thrift store and snapped
it up for my winter picnic.

The arbor is decorated for winter
so it is a good backdrop.
A wool plaid throw is my
tablecloth today.

The cement statue is wearing
her winter garland.


                                                I thought you might like a change
                                                          from my indoor Christmas so
                                                          grab a cup of cocoa before you
                                                          go and I will be back tomorrow with
                                                           with some our spare bedroom pics.

                                                             I am honored to have our home featured
                                                             on Anna's beautiful blog Shabby and Charm
                                                             today . I hope you will have time to pop in
                                                             check out all the inspiration!

                                                                I am joining Bernideen's Tea Time for
                                                                 Friends Sharing Tea today so you can
                                                                 also pop in and enjoy tea over there!

                                                                                    Take care,
                                                                                              Carolyn

Red & White Christmas Tablescape




            Hello everyone,

   I am back again and this time it is
        Christmas in the kitchen/dining room,
              along with my red & white transferware.
 

                                                                        A red and white transferware tablescape
                                                                        is set  for dinner.
I have a lot of my red and white
transferware on display all year
in the dining area of our kitchen.

Yard sale and thrifty cupboards
display my transferware.




                                                                             The Christmas tree in the bay
                                                                             window again this year.


My transferware is a mix of
old and new as well as patterns.






We had the two cupboards built in
about 12 years ago and they are
perfect for storing and displaying
my red and white transferware.

                                                 I confess I love all transferware so
                                                            I have smaller collections of other
                                                            colors as well but that is another day!

                                                                  Do you collect transferware too?

                                                                           Thank you for visiting!
