TABLE IS UP + FIND OF THE YEAR!

Some of you wanted to see my kitchen table set up, so here it is. I didn't bother cleaning up around the table or waiting until K.C. moved out of the pic! I only have one round tablecloth, a pale yellow, which doesn't match the kitchen, so I'll have to start a new hunt. All my rectangle ones aren't wide enough for this; I need to get some solid ones to put under the rectangle ones.

Mister says it's solid, without a veneer. And it has FOUR leaves!


I went to the thrift store the other day and found this wonderful Homer Laughlin Harlequin blue creamer. It will match my H.L. Riviera collection that I've started!


I also found this nice, long Christmas welcome banner.


And, finally, the Find Of The Year! A Christmas List box! Why is this so exceptional? Because it's "brand new", looks like it's never been used with no scratches and the band still around the dividers inside. And, mostly, because it was only ONE DOLLAR! These babies are now in the $15+ price range online. I love the pop-up Santa when you open the lid. Yay me!

You did very well on finding that creamer. Her dishes are very costly in most shops. Your room and table looks so nice. You did a great job. I never saw a little gift box like this one.
