Here is the table in the corner of my dining room. It is really a small secretary. It needs refinishing (project) but I decorate the top of the desk for the seasons.
I shared part of this last week, but wanted to show you the complete vignette.
This plate is Blue Ridge pottery and I have paired it with a cardinal and a crystal door knob
This large compote holds some vintage shiny brites
Under the cloche is this angel and cardinal
On the wall is a plate rack with two JOY plates found at WalMart this year and paired with some red plates from Kroger last year
I also put a few decorations on top of my hutch
I like the deep red of this Santa's coat
I also hung our stockings there this year
Mr ALC and I love Cardinals
I'm joining Marty for Table Top Tuesday

Now for some sad news...we have lost one of our blogging friends...Jeanette from Starting Over passed away Christmas morning. Jeanette was one of the first bloggers to reach out to me when I started blogging and was such an encouraging friend. Jeanette had lots of health issues but had just posted on December 19th that she was home after having surgery and was ready to get better and get back to blogging. Jeanette's beloved husband Doug has been working in Saudi Arabia and is on his way home after receiving this news. Please keep him and the rest of her family in your prayers. Jeanette's daughter passed away in 1995 and I like to think there is much hugging going on in heaven right now. I am so sad today but I know God's plan is perfect and it was his will that Jeanette's struggle be over.
Rest in Peace dear friend
