Christmas - and Susan Branch....

Here it is Thursday already!  How has your week been?

I want to take time to share with you some of my favorite things to have out for this season.

This book is full of all sorts of "goodies" for Christmas!

I was thrilled to find these mugs, designed by Susan Branch, several  years ago.

This is a documenting what has made Christmas special for us this year.  It has space for five years in it.
I have been a fan of Susan Branch for a  number of  years.  If you are not familiar with her, visit her website at  She is a very talented artist, writer, and designer of all sorts of wonderful things!

The tablecloth on the table in the second picture was a gift from a special friend.  I have really enjoyed it.

Remember!  Tonight is the night I will choose the winner of the Tea Time giveaway.  Just leave a comment telling your favorite tea and treat!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. I think Susan Branch needs you on her PR team! She really does have some lovely items, and they are always so cheery, just as your table is. Have a wonderful day! :-)

  2. I am not familiar with Susan Branch. I will visit her to get acquainted. Have a wonderful day Nellie!

  3. Lovely book, Nellie. I only have one of her books. I'm sure the Christmas books are just as inviting. I should check them out:)

    Your table looks lovely:)

    Thank you so much for sharing, Nellie...

  4. Nice table and I will be checking out Susan Branchs' website.

  5. I love those cups too, I have always liked Susan Branch as well. Your table cloth is very pretty.
    I do hope you are having a wonderful week.

  6. Those mugs are beautiful. I like a big mug for my morning coffee. You have a nice collection.

    My Christmas shopping has started and sooner or later IO'll get it done.
    Merry Christmas.

  7. I'm not familiar with Susan Branch, but I'll be hopping over to her site when I'm done here. That table cloth is very pretty.

  8. I like her work a lot, too, and you display everything so beautifully. Happy and healthy wishes!

  9. Hello Nellie!
    So nice to catch up with all of your lovely Christmas posts. I've been having problems with internet connection. It is intermittent and I have not been able to stay on-line for long at a time.
    Love your Susan Branch displays. As you know, I follow her blog too. Like you I have been following for a long time:) Your cookies in the last post look quite spectacular!
    Hope everything is going well for you as Christmas approaches.
    Happy days from a very hot Melbourne!

  10. Nellie, I don't know how much longer I can stave off my Susan Branch envy (lol) ... would be thrilled to come across even one of her dishware items. I met her in 2000 at a QVC event; have collected most all of her books and a couple of framed prints ... have followed her blog even before it became a blog! She is a gem. Wishing you a Merry Christmas!
