The first thing I do every morning is look out the window at the ground to see what the weather is like. This morning, there were no tracks in the road, and the freshly fallen fluffy snow looked magical. It reminded me of a Christmas morning when I was a child, and hoped it would snow during the night so we could have a white Christmas. So I had to build a snowman ;o) I used white Vietri plates since the design on the edges reminded me of HUGE snowflakes. I plan on doing a table for four sometime this winter.
On Saturday, I went to Destiny USA to do some Christmas shopping. I could NEVER walk by Pottery Barn. Just look at this beautiful table with those plaid plates and deer plates. I would give my eye teeth for that beautiful red pottery vase. Heck, maybe I will ;o) The vase is very large and makes quite a statement filled with those beautiful amaryllis flowers which I already have.
I bought some beautiful beaded birch candles at Pottery Barn, and some polka dot napkins.
The rest of the items were gifts....well almost. I did buy a black fur head band at Saks for our winter trip to Lake Placid, and a skirt for New Year's Eve.
I didn't know there was a Lenox store at Destiny, so I zoomed in there quickly to take a photo for you.
I was somewhat tempted to buy some 2nd quality holly dinner plates but I didn't feel like carrying them around the mall while I was shopping. The 9.99 deal was only in effect for Thanksgiving weekend. I think the discounted price is normally $12.00.
Just look at this little piggy in the courtly checked boots! I collect ornaments, and this little piggy may be coming home with me very soon. Photo from Mackenzie-Childs.
