Woodsy Themed Christmas Table

These are photos I snapped of my daughter's holiday table this year.
She started early. 

 she She got the little deer and the tree at Pier 1.

The dinnerware is from Gracious Goods. Can you see the little charm on the water/wine glass?

One of four napkins rings that came packaged together. The others say,
Love, Believe and Joy.

Bird house ornament on a small woodsy themed Christmas tree in the
family room.

Even the tablecloth reflects the woodsy theme.

This is my Santa now residing in my daughter's kitchen.
Years ago I got him from NM for a song. Great deal. 
That is faux fur on Santa.

I'm linking with The Tablescaper.

Late Fall Blooms

Here is my 'Leonidas' rose blooming this week. For some reason the richness
of the colors of this rose is not coming through.

Here is the same rose bloom soaking wet from the rain this week. Here it looks
almost surreal.

This is a bud from the same rose plant. 

I didn't touch up these shots. It amazed me how they photographed so 'out of this worldly'.

Here is the same rose bloom today (all dried off from the rain), two days before Thanksgiving.
Do you see the little ant?

I borrowed this image from Pinterest.
Again, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I
will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from
me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find
rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light"

Christmas at Neiman Marcus

I noticed that there is a lot of Christmas decorations in the 
marketplace now and I found these in Neiman Marcus at
Fashion Island, Newport Beach, California.
I love how Neiman Marcus placed this Christmas tree under
the beautiful chandelier.

This is just one of several chandeliers they had hanging in their Glories shop.

How about a chandelier candle holder?

One of a few themed Christmas trees they had in their specialty shop.

Plaid themed Christmas tree.

Red and white Hermes tabletop.
