~ christmas dishes 2012

So excited to show you my new dishes. My friend Susie at Borsheims hooks me up like no other. I had been eyeing these Juliska dishes for some time, and being the gift-giving/gift-receiving season, it seemed appropriate to revisit the idea of new dinnerware. I asked Susie about them, and lo and behold, she located 12 place settings just in time for my Christmas dinner. I was so inspired, I actually had a dinner party the Saturday night before Christmas! Feast your eyes...













The dishes looked great for Christmas dinner as well, and the flowers a la Whole Foods? So easy peasy!

~ dreaming of a pink christmas

In July I don't do red, white and blue, and for Christmas, I don't do red and green. I think it drives my mother crazy. She is a red and green kind of girl. However, I bet I could entice her to swing to my side of the color spectrum with these charming images ... She does love pink!






















Linking up for Mosaic Monday

Just sent Mom a few of these colorful votives from Pottery Barn... especially love the pink.
