Table top Tuesday and Rednesday!

This is my first time joining Marty over at A Stroll thru Life for her weekly event. I liked her idea of pics of gifts, tabletops or whatever. I thought as I am about to take down all my Christmas decor, now was a good time to reflect on the holiday in pictures. It was such a lovely holiday and I am sad to see it pass, but also excited for the coming months and what they have to bring. On to the New Year. And new decor! :)

The middle Santa is the new one this year. My husband carves me one every year and tucks it into my stocking. Aren't they fantastic?

Our fibre optic tree, quite the show in the dark. But by day, it is very simple and matches the guest room.

A mercury glass ornie I gave my husband this year. We have a special time just the two of us for this annual tradition. And below is the Steampunk angel he made for me. Awesome!

An ornie I found to celebrate the life of a dear friend who passed away this year is below. It made me smile all season long. It is sooooo her.

Also, linking to It's a Very Cherry World for Rednesday!

Oh my goodness, I have the sugar bowl from that set of dishes in your first photo! And I've never seen another piece to go along with it since. I love all of your Christmas decor, and are those cinnamon buns in that last shot? Oh my......yummy!
