Setting the table.... January calls for blue and white in our house.

Strawberry and Vine Wedgewood china; Diane by Princess cup and saucer.

Someone had omitted the flatware!:-)  Oneida pattern - Chateau; cup and saucer - Blue Danube

Oops! Still missing flatware!  No pattern mentioned for the cups and saucers.  The one in the lower left is Staffordshire tableware, made in England.  The one in the upper left is Barratts, also made in England.

Cheerful snowman napkin ring, on sale at Stein Mart several years ago; napkin - gift from Country Girl.

When I was teaching, the first craft we would do after the winter break was to make snowflakes to adorn our classroom.  Very often those would be the only snowflakes we would see throughout the entire winter season.  This may be the only snowman we see this winter.  Some of you have probably already seen enough of them this season!:-)


  1. You have so many lovely pieces for all seasons and occasions! These settings are beautiful, and I would just assume that you are putting the flatware in a special container on a buffet table. Works for me! :-) LOVE your snowmen, of course! Have a great day, Sister, with all you have planned! :-)

  2. I just love the soft blue and white, so wintery!

  3. What pretty dishes and I love blue and white, and time of year. : )

  4. Oh it is so pretty. Love the colours and design. Hug B

  5. We rarely have snow for a snowman and I'm totally good with that. We had SUN today and I actually left the house. YAY!

  6. I love your table setting. You have so many beautiful pieces. You must have a lot of storage space and that snowman napkin ring is adorable.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your Valentine table setting.

  7. Nellie, I love the white dishes. The napkins and rings are adorable. I see you have little bits of blue here and there, all picked up by your table cloth, very pretty. Hope you are having a great day. xoxo,Susie

  8. The snowmen remind me of Christmas.

  9. Oh your table setting is gorgeous! Love it all, especially the snowman napkin ring and napkin!!
