Little by little....

Little by little the house is putting on its "Christmas coat."  Today, I want to show you just a bit of the dining room.

Table is set!

Notice the different motifs on the china!

This is my favorite!

Toy soldiers!

Toy arrangement!

Always a favorite - the rocking horse!

Time for some coffee or tea!

In the china cabinet.

The china is Christmas Magic by Vista Allegre.  Crystal is Glamour Green Mist by Fostoria.  Flatware is Rondo by Gorham.  Crystal in the china cabinet is Lady Anne by Gorham.

Once again the snow and ice missed us.  We received another 1/2 inch of rain overnight, though, so it is still very damp out there!

I wish you a great Tuesday!  Remember to leave a comment about the giveaway that was in Monday's post!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. You have some beautiful Christmas dishes and stemware Nellie! Your house is looking very festive!

  2. I love all of your Christmas china and glassware! You have an amazing knack for pulling it all together to make a wonderful, cheerful time for those who happen to come to your lovely home!

    Still damp here, too, but "they" say today should be the last day of that for awhile. Have a great day!

  3. I think your table looks lovely and so festive. I do a lot of mixing and enjoy seeing pieces I've bought on trips. We've got snow here today and my plan is to make a pot of soup.

  4. Nellie, When the snow and ice pass by here...I feel blessed. We have been fortunate. Your table is looking very nice. Christmas is so near. Still lots to do. xoxo,Susie

  5. Your table setting is beautiful and festive. I love the toy motif. I always say that Christmas is for children.

    I only use my white everyday dishes for Christmas because that's what I have, nothing fancy.

    Good food, good family company and lots of laughter is my table decoration. I have Christmas place mats though.

    We're having snow flurries at the moment.

    Have a happy Tuesday

  6. What a nice variety and they all go together so well!

  7. Oh how wonderful! Christmas china - love it! We just use our normal "good china."

    Enjoy the season!


  8. Very pretty and festive. It's been snowing here today again.

    We had ice covered roads this morning, and a dusting of snow, more tonight !
