Even if I could afford classes to supplement my workout regimen, I think I'd hold out for a teacher who treats me with respect and helps me feel good about myself.


I have very few things out. Just do not decorate as much anymore. Your green glassware is very pretty.


Susan, like you I somethings find things that I'd forgotten I'd packed away. Fun to find the "old friends" waiting in the packed away containers. I've not yet started to pull things out, but plan to begin this weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing some "old friends".
Beautiful table. Happy Holidays! ~ Sarah


I agree with you that opening the boxes make it just wonderful - like opening Christmas early! Your plates are so fun and the rich colors make it wonderful.

We keep ours in the basement in plastic bins and I organize by where they go so everything goes up really fast.

I would love a hutch like that to display everything on. How fun to see the Christmas plates and other goodies displayed.

Susan, I always look for your table and look for your unique story. I think we were separated at birth. I too have a collection of hammered aluminum that gets put away to make way for the Christmas decorations! Your thrift finds are wonderful additions to your table. We keep our Christmas decorations stored in the garage on top of a closet containing our washer/dryer and large freezer. It is always a challenge to bring them down, but once they are it is like getting together with old friends. Joyful celebration time! ~CJ


Nice post, Susan. Good pix as well.

Amazing all the people who view your blog from so many places!



I love your Christmas dishes. I have similar ones too. It's always fun to decorate for Christmas. So many cheerful colors.

Susan, you described the experience I had today! There is always a surprise, and the rest are full of memories. Those are very pretty green dishes, and your fresh holly is beautiful!

Lovely! I really like those green bowls. And the green plates--wow!

I have nowhere to put anything in my house. It's a constant hassle to figure out storage. I am so jealous of those with basements, garages and attics :)

Julia @ Hooked on Houses

Love those green dishes! I keep all of my Cmas stuff boxed up in the basement, too, and it's always a surprise to open them up and see what's in them. :)
