I can't get in the groove...
we have rushed to finish school with Austin and now
our family holiday festivities begin!
I am doing good to keep my head above water!
I had all of these great intentions this holiday season
and they have just fallen flat.
I'm glad that I am the only one who has noticed.
The kids are so excited to spend time with our families this
year and can't wait for Santa to visit!
And that is what is most important for me.
Not that they had a really cute tablescape for
dinner every night, or that every inch of
the house is immaculately decorated.
I did need to pull out my Lenox Holiday
china and set the table. Can't have Christmas without it.
When I was in high school my mother bought
me my first set of China. She worked at
McRae's Department store and got a great discount!
I still have it today and still love it.
So, when it came time to register for our wedding,
I decided to register for Christmas china.
I had always loved this pattern from Lenox.
So classic and timeless!
I think I will absolutely freak out if they ever discontinue
this pattern. Friends have bought me pieces to add to it over the years
and I love every last piece I have of it.
I even have matching napkins in the Holiday pattern.
I found these napkin rings earlier this year at
Old Time Pottery and the colors are perfect.
Close up above of the napkin ring...
and close up below of the flatware
I loved it back then and I love it just as much today.
I tried to find a pattern on it,
but my eyes are not what they used to be...
All I can make out is National Stainless JAPAN
