This and That

Just some randomness for you today.

I can’t bring myself to pack away the pompom wreath I made in December.  So it has moved out of the sunroom and onto a little used door.

I added a burlap poinsettia that I purchased at the Christmas 50% off sales around town.

And do you remember my attempt at planting some hen and chicks into an old ironstone gravy dish.  Ya … it didn’t work.  They died remarkably quickly.  Though I will be on the lookout for some new ones in the spring, I am using a faux one for now.  We sell them at our store and they actually look real…at least from a ways away.  I “planted” it in some tiny stones from the shores of the Shuswap.

I have been collecting little butter pats for our table when we have “fancy” dinners.  I have a few ironstone ones and I recently purchased 5 little silver plate shells that I will use as well.  They may actually be salt cellars but I think they will work really well for butter.

The bow detail is so well done for such a little dish!  They just need a good polish when the time comes.

I love to set a beautiful table for special occasions.  It is about 100% more fun than the cooking!  Which job do you like better?
