Welcome

Welcome to our old farmhouse. Over the past year I have learned so much history of this house and the people who lived here. Ninety six years of love, loss, hopes and dreams. Preservation continues and there is always a repair to be done. We are trying to be purest in our preservation as much as we possibly can. I hope you follow along and each week I will try to give you a little history of the house as well as the first owners of the house. I've been lucky enough to find a journal from a Granddaughter who talks about the house as well as her Grandparents. So come follow along and learn about this old house as well as the occupants, old and new.

Let It Snow

It's Thursday and that means tablescape
time at Susan's. Be sure to stop by
where you are sure to finds lots of great
Christmas tablescapes.
Now onto "Let It Snow".
I really couldn't decide what to do this week,
soooo this is what transpired!
As usual I didn't use the traditional center piece
with fresh beautiful flowers. So lets take a look
at the elements I used....
This is for you Marty!
My large cloche with a white
velvet ribbon tied around the top and a
small string of white beads wrapped around.
The table is dressed in silver, white and
crystal.
No candle, I used clear Christmas tree lights
under white sheer fabric .
There are gifts for my guest tucked into
the cloche.
A little Holiday decoration with more gifts
tucked inside, all wrapped in silver. A silver serving dish.
Silver salt and pepper shakers with a
antique silver carving set.
A peak at the gifts in the cloche.
A different twist for place cards.
I made these little white cones using white
card stock then covering them in lace, with
a lace hanger.
My daughter uses them on her pink
Christmas tree in her room.
Our place setting.
A martini glass for our custard.
Crystal for our salad, bread and main course.
A smaller white plate for appetizer if needed.
Two wine glasses, one silver and one is
crystal.
A silver charger
I have had this set of dishes for more than
twenty years.
Individual silver dressing servers, antique
salt dish with mother of pearl spoon.
Mismatched silver I have collected over the
years.
I used a solid white table cloth under my
white lace Christmas cloth.
A silver napkin ring with a white napkin.
A night view.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
I will see everyone at Marty's
for the cloche party Friday.
Bye For Now,
Sandy
