OK, if I was one of those over achieving Martha types I’d have some cookies popping out of the oven and I would meet you at a beautifully decorated staircase with my monogrammed apron….that aint happening. I do however have another bottle wine that I’ll uncork, so come on in and I’ll pour you a glass. (I will confess this picture heavy post has been written three times since WordPress somehow failed to publish my first two attempts….I do believe the first one was the funniest…..)
So this year we have a new dining room table, alright I admit it. Not new, just saved from ending up at the dump. I wish I had some before pictures, you’d be in awe of Mr. Wonderful if you could see how different it is. We think it’s a “Walton’s Table” and we love it. Keeping in mind the personality of the table I changed my centerpiece this year.
A little closer look. Don’t you love the “tree”, you would have really loved the look on Mr. Wonderful’s face when I requested a “tree” for my centerpiece. I must say he is now happy with it, ok he’s not happy with the “tree” he’s happy that I’m happy. As it should be.
Well, of course it’s pink and has zebra ornaments on it. Don’t you have a tree like this? She refused to put all of her ornaments on it. I quote, “Mom I don’t want too many ornaments.” Kids these days, like there is such a thing. She’s 12 there is time to learn.
Last year I bought a box of Christmas “stuff” at the thrift store and these four vintage ornaments were part of the loot. I want more! My goal is to have a tree full of vintage next year, keep your fingers crossed.
