I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

The outside of your house looks great (THAT was a LOT of work!!!), and the inside was just as festive! I can't believe you have the patience and skill to sit there and create such ornaments! I am really fond of the first one you made (the light blue one). Wow....that is really something!!! Great new topper for the tree. Ribbon just looks so cool!

Everything is so pretty! Your ornaments are so gorgeous! Love the picture of the outside of your house. Isn't it fun that blogging fills a part of your life history - photos of the house, the way you decorated, all of the wonderful effort that you put into creating beauty in your life and for your loved ones. Have a wonderful New Year!

What a lovely christmas tree and I love the ornaments you made. They remind me of ornaments I made with my mother years ago--but updated. Do you have a blog posting on how you made these?

Come by and tell me what you would say to the latest posting!


My sweet Dianne, you did a wonderful Christmas decor on your entire house! Everything is gorgeous, specially your tree and your own ornaments are beautiful, I am so impressed of your talent! Your house out side looks lovey, so festive, you want to go in! Have a terrific and very happy New Year 2012 dear Dianne.

Yasmin Smith said...

Your tree is stunning with the hand-made ornaments on it! They are
really beautiful, and I know a lot of time, talent, patience and TLC
went into putting them together. I know your family will enjoy "passing them down" to the next generation, because things like this cannot be bought at a store.
Thank you for sharing these with us.
Wishing you a blessed and happy New Year.....Yasmin
