~ Is This the Last Winter Tablescape of the Season? ~

There are no complaints from this girl with the lack of snow we've had this winter, in fact our winter has been very mild. Makes me wonder what the Ides of March will bring. What better way to finish off the last week of February with some snowflake dishes.
Embossed like edges full of fun and whimsy look like small peaks of snow.
 For Christmas my daughter gave me these darling dishes, does she know my heart or what? I immediately set up a table of the last remaining bits of Christmas that were hanging around. Oh my goodness NO; it's all been  put away for a very long time. I just hadn't gotten around to putting the pictures together to share with all of you.

A  treasured mug awaits your drink of choice.


Using mixed sets of dishes only adds to the excitement of a tablescape. The beauty of red and white is always a sure winner. White antique edge dishes came from Walmart a few years ago.

A red and white snowflake napkin coordinates with the snowflake napkin ring, adding the second snowman napkin only adds to the fun table.


This reminds me of dribbling paint from a bottle in bible school. Do you remember those days? I can vaguely remember coming up with something similar to this design, thinking I was the next Van Gogh. Ummmm obviously that didn't happen. Lol



The candy canes were put away ages ago, the Hershey kisses and M&M's were finally finished up on Monday, just in time for Jellybeans to fill the apothecary jar.
Thanks so much for stopping in to view what I hope is the last Winter type tablescape. I'm ready for Spring and green, how about you? Until next time....

Oh Lynne, how I LOVE your snowflake table!!! The dishes are so adorable, and I have the same white ones from Walmart too. I have all my snowy dishes put away so didn't get a chance to do a snowy or snowman table this year. But with the MILD weather we have had, I haven't really wanted to, didn't want to jinx it:):). Have a great week. XO, Pinky

This is such a fun table, perfect for a winter day! Your snowflake dishes and napkins are so cute. I love the candy canes!

It definitely feels like spring is around the corner...we have had a really mild winter, too. As you say, who knows what March will bring!

XO,

It's a beautiful winter tablescape Lynne...I love those colors!:-)

Once a farmer, always a farmer...J is worried about the lack of moisture this winter. A friend was digging the other day. He said the earth was dry several feet down.

Of course, I certainly appreciated the lack of much snow when J was in hospital. Had a little bit and it melted quickly. But then I think about gardens and crop fields this year and wonder how things will do.

Someone we know hauled hay out to OK last week. He said the pasture is just about gone out there.

However, some of the worst winter weather we have seen here in good ol' fickle weather Missouri, has come in March...wow! I am reminded of the week of snow and ice, without electricity, that ended on Easter morning...1978.:-)

I'm going to confess that I did not get all my Christmas stuff put away until about 2 weeks ago. It was all taken down from around the house, but it was still in the rec room waiting to be put back in the storage room. It's such a huge and daunting task, and I just wasn't feelin' it! We so rarely use the rec room these days that it didn't bother me...until I saw it was almost Valentine's Day! Everything was stashed neatly away on February 13! :-) CUTE dishes and I LOVE the napkins! Nice to see this last bit of the holiday season since I kind of miss it already. Let's snap out of it now and get ourselves ready for Spring! :-)

Lovely! And I admire that you had this last Winter tablescape in you...I DO NOT! I am just plain flagging all over the place, Lynne.
I'm here today for a shot in the arm but it didn't work. No problem because I'll just be back tomorrow..and the next day and the next.. :)

I love your tablescape Lynne! We've had a really mild winter too, but I'm nervous that come April and May, that snow might find us...

Have a great weekend!
