The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Bring A Torch !

 A Traditional Christmas Chandelier
is lighting the Dining Room On Crooked Creek !

I kept the Traditional decor in Dining Room
even though this area shares space
with my Gingerbread  theme.

Creamy ivory shades keep our dining room well illuminated during the late Autumn and early Winter evenings
On Crooked Creek !
Beginning with a hydrangea garland laid atop the chandelier arms,
I then added frosted red berry sprigs
and a strand of ruby red beaded garland.
Sheer gold ribbon tied in a bow
disguises the loop at the end of the garland.
A bird's nest, already inserted into the garland, remains.
This is the view from the dining room chairs as we enjoy our meal.
Waiting for a $ale
for these creamy ivory chair cushions
seemed to take f o r e v e r  ~
but the waiting paid off, quite nicely !

Red and silver seemed the perfect choice
for Christmas On Crooked Creek !
Trying to stay within my "streamlined" accessories for Christmas,
I added a few additional decorations to accentuate the Season !
Choir boys purchased in the 1980's. . .

a Christmas Greeting ~

 joined with a 1974 Holly Hobbie plate of Carolers,
my 1950's December Angel,
and a silver candelabra.
Traditional red and silver make a striking statement on the buffet.


 Candy canes fill the silver condiment holder for a festive touch.
A damaged vintage red star grounds the peppermint stripe quilted topper.

The remaining vintage red stars hang with white sheer ribbon
in the adjacent turquoise wall pockets.
A ladybug holder ~

A dragonfly holder ~

and a butterfly holder !

Our Traditional Dining Room
is illuminated by Mother Nature by day

. . .and by our Dining Room chandelier by night !
No need to  Bring A Torch !
Until next time. . .
