Simple Simon

soft glow santa and presents
Mixed in with my everyday items are this year’s
Christmas decor.  Tiny little packages wrapped and
adorned with vintage millinery and jewelry sit at the
bottom of a little tree with Santa standing guard.  The
backdrop for this vignette are some of my favorite
ironstone pitchers.

I tucked tiny trees inside of the old restaurant
creamers that have green patterns on them.  My great
aunt’s little heart box sends a heartfelt message: “ ‘Tis
The Season To Be Jolly”.  I love that little box because
I know my aunt Lottie didn’t have much and I have
something that belonged to her..and it is so sweet.

Old game pieces spell out holiday messages on top of
a favorite old ironstone platter.  Tucked next to Santa
is a simple vintage package tie on.

And this is the little holiday grouping in the white
hutch this year.
Pretty simple.

Thank you for all of your sweet comments left in my
last post.  Again, I apologize for the word
verification..and Mona, I know it is a pain in the back
side…but necessary as a means to keep the swarm of
spam from raining on my blog parade.  Maybe I will
remove it soon to see what happens.
I hope that many of you were inspired by

Stop by to see what other links are going on in the
next week or so.
Till next time, stay warm and dry.

I just recently purchased my first restaurant mini-creamer (with green stripes) and I am in love! I have collected ironstone butter-pats for several years and the combination is out-of-this-world!!

Hi Becky!
What a delightful Christmasey post. I love your choice this year of all things white. I am such a red lover that I get my white fix by visiting my blog pals like you.

What cute Santas and little white trees. I have some bottlebrush trees that I found thrifting and am still trying to decide where to display them. Your look so sweet snugged inside your heavy white creamers.

Your post is just the sweetest, my friend,
Blessings and Merry CHRISTmas!

ps...I, too, am starting to get a lot of spam. Just hate it and hope it doesn't continue to build.
