Whites in the dining room

I thought you might enjoy taking a look at my dining room.

I found these sweet little bird tidbit trays to go beside each place setting.
If I just had "tidbits to go in them, now, that would be great."

One of my favorite cake stands

The plate once belonged to our church.  There are about forty of them.  Those in charge of our kitchen at the time were donating them to the fire department.  They were being replaced with something more practical.  I couldn't bear it,  I made a donation and they became mine.  I am so blessed to have them.

The flower arrangements are silk roses, lilies, peonies, orchids, hydrangeas and ivy.

My sideboard with an arrangement of carnations.

Have you noticed that I like cake stands?

And crystal?

A place setting ready to go.  All we need is flatware and something wonderful to eat!

In the shop, I have really been working hard to get ready for our "busy seasson".
Sewing, painting and cleaning.  I have painted some new cake stands this week as well as a new rose  punch bow. I still have signs, bookmarks and greeting cards to go.  Working on my winter mirrors, painted windows, candles, glassware and ornaments.  Wow, that's a lot of painting!  I really should get busy.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!
See you soon.
