O Holy Night


O holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appeared and the soul felt it's worth
The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder brinks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, O night divine

Christmas blessings to everyone. Bonnie

A Christmas Party


This is a party my daughter hosted. I love how she styled the desserts on her buffet and how her dining table reflected in the mirror in this picture. The desserts look delicious.

This is the kitchen table. Looks like roses, nandina berries, red alstroemeria, and aucuba foliage in the flower arrangement. Her container is the teapot from her husband's grandmother's silver service. I know the grandmother would be glad to know she is enjoying using it. I've always loved these glasses which add a little touch of whimsy.
The dining room table is set with her wedding china. The crystal goblets warm my heart as I remember a group of friends that gave her the lovely vintage goblets when she married. The Joy to the World napkins are lovely. I like the burlap runner and the placemats so the pretty burl pattern of her table shows. There is a brick shaped candle in the center of the table and the ornaments are copper, silver and gold that accent the flowers. In the corner of this room she has a silver tree on a round table with all those copper, silver and gold ornaments. It is stunning! 

Are you hosting any parties this Christmas? I am having one this year when I host my Sunday School class which I hope to share later. May you enjoy and cherish time with friends and family as you attend parties and celebrations and remember the real reason we celebrate. Joy to the World the LORD has come. Let earth receive her king!

Notre belle ville de Paris- Part 1

It's been close to a year now since our last trip to France with wonderful memories I would like to share with you today about one of our favorite places, Paris.  The full moon over Paris was beautiful and a nighttime stroll with Notre Dame all aglow set the stage for another delightful Paris visit.
Paris is alive and has an energy that invigorates. It is busy at all hours and is beautiful day and night.

Blue and White is Back!

I am so happy blue and white is stylish again.  I have always loved it and have quite a few pieces. My dining room sideboard got a new look using old books in different shades of blue, moss balls and a house plant in cache pots and camellias in a small ginger jar. Using both light blue designs along with the cobalt color blended the blue and white in a look I love.
