My masterpiece - family together on Christmas Day, with Love.
The Granddads from both sides of the family joined us for Christmas dinner this year. They are 90 and 91 and have quite a bit in common, WWII, the Great Depression, raising families on very little, comparing hip surgeries, their lives today, tallying their children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. After visiting, dinner, tea and dessert and more visiting DS drove the paternal Grandpa home, taking him on a 'looking at Christmas lights' tour on the way and I drove my Dad home, taking him on a tour of the brightest Christmas lights around town. We all enjoyed ourselves. DH did a great job with the turkey, dressing and gravy, I did vegetables, DS carved and did the potatoes and whipped cream. I cleaned up (my pretty dishes, my choice).
Coloradolady: Vintage Thingie Thursday, Thrift Share Monday with Apron Thrift Girl and Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No. 94 with Coastal Charm. My table setting is mostly thrifted. The beautiful red cut glass glasses are estate sale finds as are the pink Royal Winton dinner plates. The serving dishes are all garage sale, the knives are garage sale and the christmas poppers (unopened, as new) are garage sale finds as well. The pink plates and red glasses are treasures I bring out only on special occasions. Even the salt shaker is thrifted.
