While I finally pulled out the dust cloth, the vacuum, and the total spiff-it-up kit to make magic in the land of dust bunnies, The Claus family was baking up a storm in my kitchen. I do hope they clean up their mess and leave the kitchen sparkling!!
They came to me in that nice brown truck that brings presents, directly from Kohl's for the special
price of $34. I'm so happy to have them on my team as we prepare for our Christmas Eve dinner right beside the Christmas tree.
Visions of sugar plums, ballerinas and toys under the Christmas tree join my childhood Nutcracker from a recent Show and Tell Friday on this vintage tablecloth depicting the scenes and characters from "The Nutcracker."
Italian glass chargers, Scarlet Post 86 Fiesta and Williams Sonoma salad plates. Stemware from Pier 1, flatware from Macy's, napkins and napkin rings from Crate and Barrel in the late 80s.
