Warm yourself by the fire. It turns on by the flick of a switch.
Grab a cup of hot cocoa.
That big guy is filled with …
…warm, rich hot cocoa.
Toss a few marshmallows in.
You’re starting to warm up, right?
So, have a little snack.
A snow couple! Now don’t let that snowball hit you in the eye!
The little pale blue balls on the napkin rings could almost be ice balls. You don’t want to get hit with one of those.
Nor get bopped on the head as this guy did.
Just enjoy warming up with a nice cup of hot cocoa by the fire.
Ok, before I go any further, I have to share something with you. If you’ve ever been to this blog before you know I am a super dish-a-holic. Mr. Scaper is very patient with my addiction. As I’m sure is the case with most of your significant others, they are not into dishes, they basically tolerate us. Well, the funny thing is, the snowman set featured in this post is Mr. Scaper’s favorite! He accuses me every year of trying to skip using these (well, sometimes that does happen – getting all of those Christmas plates away, trying to find my home under all of it, a family birthday in January and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner). But this year with the blog in place and more dishes all over the house, there was no way I was going to skip it. Since it is his favorite, I was able to convince him to help carry it up from the Butler’s Pantry/Dish Room in the basement.
- Beverage dispenser (which has a place in the bottom “ball” for a warming candle), mugs and plates were from Target several years ago.
- Napkins from The Christmas Tree Shop. I just can’t seem to bring back where the napkin rings are from.
- Candle stick holders and tiered server from Maces, a wonderful discount store that no longer exists.
- Round enamel tray by The Golden Rabbit.
Today was a bit unusual as I’ve posted twice in one day. As usual, on a Wednesday evening I’m linking with Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Stop over for more table tops. Additionally, earlier today I did a re-post so I could join Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses on her very first White Wednesday. Click here to see my White Wednesday post.
