When I bought my house years ago, I wanted a large
dining room. I had my Grandmother's buffet and hutch along with
a antique buffet I had bought at an auction. So I wanted
plenty of room for all the pieces. Luckily I found that house
with the large dining room.
I love decorating the buffet
new pieces and vintage pieces.
with white lights and evergreen
I especially love it at night
My Portmerion plate I bought in London years ago, my Grandmothers cut
new mercury glass
My silver, a vintage sugar shaker
Christmas Old English Rose
Now a look at my Grandmother's buffet
Her silver set and some pieces of her American Fostoria
Both were used when she hosted her Eastern Star meetings or
Book lovers club.
A little silver basket filled with greens
Her sterling silver candlesticks
I always fill up some of the dishes with Hershey miniatures
for the Holidays, just as she always did
The mirror always hung about the buffet at her house, so it does in
my dining room too. Reflects my MIL beautiful china cabinet she gave me
that is filled with nothing but crystal.
My little plates I picked up several years ago.
I still miss going to Grandma's for Christmas,
it has been 25 years since I did.
But the wonderful memories live on.
Merry Christmas to all Marty and all my TTT friends!
