Back to the foyer

You already saw my new table in the foyer.....now you get to see my childhood dish set......I have featured it in an antique watch maker's cabinet.   The back of the cabinet had holes and screw hooks in there for holding pocket watches......I removed those and covered the back with heavy paper and put in little shelves to hold the china......the only piece missing is the sugar bowl, which I broke during one of my tea parties as a child!!!  Santa brought the set.....purchased from the Jewel Tea Co., which my mom was a devoted customer.......






These are tiny stockings hand stitched by friends......


            Merry Christmas my friends..........xoxoxo

Adorable little dishes, my goodness, they're a total treasure! The antique watch cabinet is another jewel you have and with the little dishes is lovely. Your mom must love it...sorry about the sugar bowl.
Thanks for sharing, I just dropped by from TT at Marty's. Merry Christmas. FABBY

Cleo - what a beautiful job you do - If I tried arranging all those beautiful things, it would look like I was having a garage sale. You put things together beautifully. I am sure if I walked through your front door, I just wouldn't know what to look at first. You are a very talented lady. love it all. Hugs - Sandi

I just have to tell you thanks for the memory. I haven't thought of the Jewel T Man for decades. My mom was a great customer too.

Your home is so warm and inviting that I want to come right over. I do love your little white dove. It beckoned me here.

Also THANKYOU for coming to my new blog and making a comment. It means so much to me being my blog is only a month old. Hope to see you more often both here and there.

Warmly,

Nann
