Dec 2012 091

Well, they have morphed into an owl and an angel!

The owl is my gson, the angel , his cousin.

My 1 year old owl won first place for his costume!  What a HOOT!


A few more of my gkids and their cousins at the annual Halloween party.

I don’t host Tgiving, so I have been browsing Christmas inspiration.

I know, too early, but I am slow!


The newest flyer for CTS has lots of dishes to tempt, and an adorable Debbie Mumm throw, which I couldn’t figure out how to get the picture to post!  :)  You can see the whole flyer on line, and as I said in my last post, you can shop limited items online.

I bought some new pink dishes from Pfaltzgraff on sale, and had hoped to do a scape for October Breast Cancer awareness…but life comes first.001

Sorry I am late, I was out all day, had a looong lunch with some HS friends, and we chatted for hours!

Thanks for stopping by!

Same rules, one dish related link, no word id, a link back to this party, and blog name first. Please, if you don’t have time to visit at least 5 entries, save your link for when you have time.  Thanks!

  4. Oh my gosh, Kathleen, they are adorable!! I can't believe they grew so much and into the cutest little owl and angel!! Thank for the news about CTS! I am thinking about both Christmas and Thanksgiving as I will be hosting both but only 10 people. I'm focusing more on the table settings and less on the food! Same menu every year so I have it down now. I already see some ideas I will use on your table like the acorns so thanks for the inspiration and for hosting. Linda

  5. Kathleen, I enjoyed seeing all of your tables and the precious children. I am excited, about CTS going online, since I have none near me. Thanks for letting me know!

  6. Hi Kathleen! I love your Fall header...such a comforting 'scape and the soup looks delish! Your grands are adorable. I'm so glad you had fun chatting away with your HS friends...FUN! Thanks for hosting and Happy Halloween!

  10. Well, that little owl is adorable. No wonder he won 1st place. '-)
    Yes, I'm beginning to think toward Thanksgiving because we'll have at least 12 here for dinner. Wish I had a set of those gorgeous tureens with the brown and white transferware and acorn finial. Were those Pottery Barn or William Sonoma? Wish I'd snagged a set of those.
    Happy Halloween! ~ Sarah

    1. Sarah, they were from WSonoma Outlet. But 12 would have broken the bank even at the Outlet. Black Friday they were 75% off. But I never shop then, jusy internet, can't stand the crowds!
