I had a couple of friends over for a morning coffee/tea -- very informal! It was fun to get out these Debbie Mumm plates and mugs that I use just at Christmas. I bought them several years ago at Target.
There are four different snowmen scenes.
My fixation with plaid this Christmas called for a new tablecloth. I have had my eye on this flannel at JoAnn's for awhile. It is not the usual inexpensive flannel on the racks, but a nice quality. There are some wonderful plaid and houndstooth patterns/colors and sells for $10 a yard; but it has been on sale a couple of times this Fall. I paid $5 a yard for this red plaid.
The flannel washes and dries well, plus it fringes beautifully.
They also had this glen plaid that I used to make a pad for my Jim Shore Santa and sheep.
BTW, that's a great apple and pecan cake we enjoyed with our coffee/tea and conversation. And if that wasn't enough, we then went to our local French restaurant for lunch. It's nice getting older - we get to eat dessert first!
