Another Year Over~A New One's Just Begun~

It will be a quiet New Year's here .  Santa left me a bug, by mistake, I am sure, but I have been taking my meds and lots of naps!
If I had my mojo, I would have set us a table with lots of bling!

A little bell to ring in the new year.

The dishes are new, half price after Cmas at CVS

I am giving a few sets to my dil to use on the children's table.  I had given her 4 of the Holiday by Lenox Children's sets, but they don't make them anymore, and this year there were 8 kids!  This will be perfect, and they can use them for everyday meals during the Cmas season.

DH cooked us a nice dinner, and I will be back in bed before long!
I hope 2012 is a good year for everyone, good health, and happiness!

  18. Kathleen,

    Thanks for linking up and the shout-out! Sorry you are not feeling well, but glad you're napping and being tended by your sweet groom. The bling table surely impresses, but so does the simpler one with CVS dishes (what a find!) Happy 2012! Hope to see you lots! ~CJ

  20. Oh noooo, Kathleen!! I'm so sorry to hear you're not feeling well now. What a crappy way to start off the New Year!
    Hoping it is short lived & you'll be back to playing with your dishes in no time.
    BTW, those tablescapes are just incredible!!

  22. Am so sorry you are sick. But by the looks of your table you would never know it. It is to put it boldly... understated elegance. Its GORGEOUS!! You need to give yourself a litle credit here as even sick you still do it up right. Also love your new dishes. So bright and cheerful and festive.
    Do take care of yourself. Its no fun being down.

    Your New Year table looks great! I love the white, silver, crystal combinations. The greenery and bling on the napkin rings is nice, too.

  29. Hello, Kathleen. Being fairly new to blogging still, I am amazed at the hearty souls who continued posting right through the holidays, and now here you are, under the weather and still putting a beautiufl post out there for us to enjoy! The glitzy table is beautiful--I'm on the hunt for those shakers as I write--and the dishes from CVS are great for the kiddies! What a great idea! I hope you're feeling well by now and back in full swing for the new year! ~Zuni

  34. awwww, so sorry you are sick. Sure seems to be a lot of it going around. Mr. and I stay pretty much inside the house these days of sickness. Haven't had a cold in a few years...I just hate 'em.

    Since my birthday is on NY's Eve, we always have a small party with family and friends. This year, there were 22 of us and we had a nice time...eats, games, talks....just a really nice time.

    Feel better soon...:))
