Merry Christmas

I hope you all had a lovely and blessed holiday. This year we had a low key 18th Century Christmas with the Cartwrights. It was very nice and quiet. I also had a chance to use some of the lovely dishes I inherited from my late grandparents. I am so happy that these pieces have new life.


We started the morning by giving the chicken babies their stocking. Yes, all of my pets got stockings and they LOVED the contents.


The house with the stockings for Max, Leila, and Gico. I was thrilled to find stockings that had their initials on them!

The spread.

And the most important part, the guests, with two sweet doggies that actually sat still for us to take a picture.

God Bless!

Love Lauren

Wonderful! The table with your grandparent's dishes looks so elegant and the cake so extremly yummie!

What a fun way to spend Christmas! And I envy any costumer out there that has a significant other that would dress up with them. I've never asked my hubby. He'd either outright refuse or he would do it but make sure I was aware that he was suffering greatly!
