A Blue Christmas

Source:  Pinterest

I love blue cabinets!  

Isn't this room just beautiful decorated with this lovely Christmas wreath?

I've been Christmas cards have been mailed and our outside lights are strung up. 

But I haven't started my interior decorating yet.  

I haven't slept well the last three nights and I just had no energy today to decorate at all.

So I decided to surf Pinterest for inspiration instead.

Hopefully tomorrow I will be more motivated.

My "Christmas Heritage" Plate Setting

I bought these adorable Christmas ornaments from The Christmas Haus (Oxford, PA) in several different designs and gave one to each of my three sister-in-laws one Christmas.  

Of course, I loved them so much, I had to have a set of them too.

Wm Rogers Pattern "Spring Charm" 1950

This is one silverware pattern from the silverware set purchased by my Mom in the early 1940s and passed down to me.  Mom chose two different patterns for her set of 12 - this one is the rose pattern - not sure of the correct name.  I've started to research on the internet and found a Facebook page for Nobility Silverware.  If anyone knows the name of this design let me know.  

Isn't it pretty?

Update:  Pattern shown appears to be "Spring Charm" 1950 by Wm Rogers.   My Mom's passed so I can't ask her when she purchased her set.  Maybe she purchased the two patterns together or possibly at different times.  Her silverware set of 12 with both patterns (six of each) is in a wooden case with a brochure entitled "Nobility Silverware Co., Inc. Newark, NY".   The Nobility pattern is Riverie (not shown here).

Another cute "Merry Christmas" ornament from The Christmas Haus.

My "Christmas Heritage" china by Pfaltzgraff was given to me through the years by my relatives.

I have a complete set for ten now.

It's so pretty offset by my crocheted red, white and green Jingle Bells throw!
