Tis the Season

What's It Wednesday #53

Tis the Season to celebrate life's journeys with friends. A desert table was the perfect place to display some of our favorite deserts. 
I treated myself to this delightful desert tray. I decided it would be my Christmas gift to me. 

Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Ganache Cake and Apple Crumble Pie fit perfectly on the Three Tiered cake plate. In addition to looking great that actually tasted great.

It was also football Sunday so a sportsman/sportswoman Christmas tree was in order.

The Miami Dolphins nutcracker was a great touch to the sports decor, much to my husband's chagrin (He does not like the Dolphins). 

The Christmas bears guard and protect birdcage. I absolutely adore birdcages and of all the ones in my collection this one is my absolute favorite.

In the birdcage is a beautiful Santa dressed in teal, flanked by two beautiful Christmas trees.

I love collecting snowmen and women in fur coats for my mother. I surprise her with two or three each Christmas.

The living room is ready for quiet evenings watching Christmas specials on the telly and the much anticipated arrival of St. Nick. 

The holidays also means honoring my great-grandmother Helen with a Menorah. 

What are some of your favorite holiday decorating items? 


Thank you all for participating in our "What's It Wednesday" Linky Party!

I have had the worse time getting into your blog. Patti dearest, the last time you visited me, I came over here immediately, but was unable to get in. This time I let the wheel spin and spin and now here I am.

Your decorations are just happy and colorful. Thank you for shedding the grace and beauty that we all need now. Patti dearest, I know you are a teacher too....hugs to you and blessings in your heart as you go out to serve the community with hope and love in your heart for each student. I shall do the same as a substitute and will always remember those blessed little angels that have gone home a bit too soon in my opinion...but God knows why.

Hugs to you both! Anita

Thank you so much for hosting the party.
I too have a terrible time getting your page to load. I tried to get on last night and a couple of times this am.
My techy grandson said I was having the same problem with my sight. He told me to put in a line break with the "continue reading here" line. It worked for me. Just saying.
Love to all, Ginger
