The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. - James A. Michener

Santa is all Smiles

We know the reason for the season.


But rumor has it that Santa Clause is coming to town!

Your home looks beautiful with your Christmas finest. I love the santa on the horse in his green coat. Such detail and he has a great face. Your candelabras are beautiful.

The Santa on horseback is amazing! Haven't ever seen that piece. He's a perfect focal point whether on the hearth or as a table centerpiece. The Santa plates are designed beautifully, and they are a great addition to your beautiful tablescape. Thank you for sharing your charming design & for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay

Love your nativity and the backdrop is wonderful. What a beautiful table. I am a little late, but I still want to keep reading blogs even though everyone is so busy. I love the Santa centerpiece. He is so elegant and what fun plates and flatware. I love your beautiful chairs and table. You could have paper plates on this and it would still be wonderful. Have a very Merry Christmas and may the joy of the Savior's birth shine brightly all through the year for you and yours.
