ON THIS WINTER SNOWY DAY
A SILVER AND CRYSTAL TABLE SETTING
I am reposting this Tablescape I did last year, I see a lot of changes in my dining room,
and hopefully more to come.
Why not add a pot of Hot Tea, and cups and saucers to your Table
As I look out my door, at the lovely site of snow
Yes, there sit my old claw foot bath tub. I had hubby to bring out to be refinished.
I decided to add silver balls to my Early American Prescut Crystal, with silver trees

A cup and saucer ready for a hot cup of tea
The stemware that came from Dollar Tree
As you enter the dining room from the family room
I didn’t get this one straight! My camera was acting up, as was my hands with the tablecloth
I ordered a new one last week, it was suppose to be here last Friday, I sure hope it comes today!
I soon hope to move the bench, which my grandchildren love to sit at,
but I want to have just my chairs for a different look.
I love the silver balls in the Crystal Bowls with the silver trees
My daughter found a few old pieces of this flatware, I loved it so.
While looking in Walmart last summer
I came upon a reproduction of this flatware, which had fell in love with.
I bought two sets!
Renaissance is the name of this lovely flatware that won my heart.

I have a huge collection lot of pieces never shown
Today as I show you my table setting.
Many people come into my website just to see some of my rarest finds
The glasses, and plates are rare finds
Center Piece with the candelabra I got for $1.00
As you leave today, here a wonderful view as the snow follows the creek back into the woods
These pictures were in the morning by afternoon we had over six inches.
Now they say were going to have snow again in a day, I wanting Spring to come,
but looks like snow loves Mississippi this Winter.
This Christmas Day 2010, Snowflakes fell most of the day,
a baby lamb was born this very day.
Her name is Hope
Then December 26, beneath the starlight another lamb, was born her name is Bella
My Gulf Coast Sheep are from Dempsey Perkins’ Gulf Coast Sheep bloodline, which goes back to the 1800. These sheep are on the critical list. I am so excited to have Mr. Perkins Ram from his farm, I toured his farm and fell in love with this breed of sheep. Mr. Perkins died just 3 months after he took me on a tour of his farm. At the time I begged him to sell me some lambs, but he had not picked out the ones he wanted to keep. I found my Gulf Coast Sheep in the newspaper, about an hour from our home in a place called Sunrise. I knew they were registered, but not that the Ram Quincy was from Dempsey Perkins’ farm.
I was so happy to have not only the Ram but four Ewes from his bloodline.
As all know, I love roosters, when I was at the farm Dempsey Perkins’ wife and daughter showed me the wool, spun and carded. I bought some wool to spin.
Then we went to the house, where I feel in love with her Rooster Rug.
Mrs. Perkins told me where to go in Quincy, Louisiana to purchase it,
I bought two Rooster Rugs, I’m sure you have seen in my kitchen.
I have an old walking spinning wheel and Mr. Perkins, one of the nicest men you could know, was to make me new parts for my Walking Wheel. But it was not to be as I was traveling/working.
By the time I had got home he had already passed.
I shall always remember the lovely day I spent with the Perkins on their wonderful farm!
Ewe is a ( female sheep)
Ram is a ( male sheep)
on the left Sunrise is two years old, she is Bella ( Dam) Mother
Trixie, Hope’s Mother is not in this photo for she is up in the barn with Hope.
My ram tore down the feeder, So he is now in another pasture at the back of the barn.
Soon we hope to have more lambs running around, as all these Ewe’s are to give birth soon. As Sunrise did the night this photo was taken. Joline maybe expecting twins.

My two lambs, Hope and Bella love to run, jump, and play together,
and I love watching from the French Doors!
Thank You for letting me share not only my Table Setting, but my love of sheep on my farm.
As Always Save A Cup Of Tea For Me!
