Snow Crystals ~ Pink Transferware Christmas Tablescape



Throughout the afternoon I watched them there, 


Snow-fairies falling, falling from the sky, 

Whirling fantastic in the misty air, 

Contending fierce for space supremacy. 

And they flew down a mightier force at night, 

As though in heaven there was revolt and riot, 

And they, frail things had taken panic flight 

Down to the calm earth seeking peace and quiet. 

I went to bed and rose at early dawn 

To see them huddled together in a heap, 

Each merged into the other upon the lawn, 

Worn out by the sharp struggle, fast asleep. 

The sun shone brightly on them half the day, 

By night they stealthily had stol'n away

~by Claude McKay~

Merry Christmas

  8. That is so pretty, Nancy! I love the dishes and how you've set the table with the snowy theme. I have snowflake dishes, too, only I found the two I bought at the dollar store. : ) Just found two bowls and some glasses that will work with them at Kroger {works for me and hubby}. It is snowing a little here this morning ~ enough to stick to the grass anyway.
