Glassware...Everywhere! (Part 2)

If you've been following my blog, you may remember that I enjoy attending the annual glass show sponsored by the Peach State Depression Glass Club. Glassware for sale ranges from delicate antiques to depression dinnerware, elegant glassware, mid-century designs and (almost) contemporary pieces.

Last July there was glass in all shapes, sizes and colors occupying two floors. Some were functional, some were simply decorative and some are hard to describe. As usual we had a fun afternoon and of course managed to come home with a few!

Christmastime Accented with Red

I've set another holiday table in what we call the 'game room' (because it's perfect for board games and card games) or the 'garden room' (because it opens onto the lower patio by the pond). I would rather have set it in the dining room, a room that lends itself to larger displays and elegant settings. But I couldn't because we are in the midst of renovating the kitchen. The rooms on the first floor are shrouded in plastic and the dining room table is covered with the stuff you normally stash in the kitchen. The renovation was supposed to begin in September, but it was the first week of November before it did. We can't get to where we store the decorations so haven't been able to decorate the house for Christmas. Ah, well...

Twelve Drummers Drumming...

December is here and with it the Christmas season! For my first holiday table this year I continued with the twelve days of Christmas, ending of course with twelve drummers drumming.
