~ Christmas Coffee Table ~

I have a new coffee table......well it's not really new, it's an old oak table Carl's parents made into a coffee table back in the 50's. When we were in Texas this past summer Carolyn, my SIL asked if we'd like had been stored away for years. Yes, yes, yes.. I love it They say less is better but not for me. I always like to have lots of pictures and trinkets about and this table works perfectly.....Yikes, it looks like Santa has a sweet tooth....

I hope he doesn't eat the reindeer candy corn, that's for Rudolph and all the other reindeer.

Isn't that a tiny little Santa...he is so cute and his little arms even move....

I really like candles and this little arrangement is a combination of mercury glass candle holders and greens setting on a a silver tray I bought at a garage sale. My candles are from last year...if you have candles that still have some life, store them in the refrig and they are perfect for another year...I think these will be burning brightly next year too. Have a merry day, hugs, Linda

Love all the pretties on your Christmas coffee table. The treats would be all gone here... :)
Your little pillows are darling and I love them:)
Does your coffee table have a bottom shelf?
Enjoy all the wonder of Christmas!

The coffee table is lovely, and what a wonderful way to present all your lovelies.

Hey Linda,
I like a big table too but my living room isn't big enough to leave mine in there for large groups so it has been out since before Thanksgiving. It is one of those that raises up and comes forward so you can use it to eat off of or play games but mine is always covered with stuff like yours.
Where did you find that candy corn?

I received a lovely Christmas Card in the mail. Thanks ever so much.

Rudolph is lucky I'm not there, otherwise he would have no Christmas candy corn left! hehe Your "new" coffee table looks wonderful and I love all the stuff you have on it!!
