...funny little fairies.....



12/8
I am joining in on all the CHRISTMAS FUN  parties this month...
today is Sherry's
NO MINIMALIST HERE
Holiday Dining

 Being short on time due to so much needing to be done around Sweet Nothings for the
CHRISTMAS holidays,
I am bringing back a really FUN
HOLIDAY TABLE from last year.
My newest readers haven't seen it and  I think it's fun to look at a
SECOND TIME AROUND for others.
This day, I was just having fun playing around on a
CHRISTMAS centerpiece for my long dining table...


I was having such fun with a bunch of thrifted items from
SALVATION ARMY THRIFT STORE..
some of them being VINTAGE.

Everything was all WHITE...

...WHITE AND SILVER...
snow and ice.
and lookin' gooood...

UNTIL...

THIS little cutie fella, AKA

The  CHRISTMAS FAIRY...
and

..the SUGAR PLUM FAIRY (I just blogged about him..he's my fav......)
just JUMPED upon my table...
right smack dab in the middle of all the
WHITENESS and SILVERNESS..  

Right by the wicker sleigh full of holly and berries and Christmasness...
and they looked SOOO good, in all that white surroundings..
I had to let them stay...
ALAS..that blew my
ALL WHITE  TABLE....♥♥heavy sigh

Of course, you might know that it didn't take long
til the fun REALLY began....
♥ ♥ ♥
They jumped right up on those amazing WHITE CERAMIC DEER...
the male deer has only ONE antler and he was 50 cents..
his little doe was perfect so she cost the big sum of 75 cents..:)

♪♫ RUDOLPH the RED ANTLERED REINDEER ♫♫♪

...RIDE 'EM COWBOY

...and, pretty SUGAR PLUM jumped on the other deer. 

They just looked so cute on the deer.

He always looks like he has a secret....
maybe a secret about how wonderful MARK ROBERTS makes ALL his
beautiful fairies.....?.....


"Every time a child says, "I don't believe in fairies," there is a fairy somewhere that falls down dead."  ~James Matthew Barrie, Peter Pan

The fairies and their long, narrow feet....:>)

Now, these little fairy boots are a whole lot cuter to me than cowboy boots...

THE MERRIEST CHRISTMAS, EVER..

Remember these ?
I've blogged about them many, MANY times...
Canned biscuits (I use the big GRANDS) rolled as thin as you can...
Can of TART cherries...NOT cherry pie filling.
Add sugar to taste to the cherries (I like mine REAL sweet :), a little flour, if they need thickening, and heat.
Fill biscuits, fold over, crimp closed with a fork.
Melted butter, a sprinkling of Cinnamon and more sugar.
Bake in 350 oven for ABOUT 15 minutes..
ALL OVENS VARY so keep checking yours.
I just these...hope you do, too.
LOVE AND MERRY CHRISTMAS,  bj

Catherine Denton said...

Love the fairies among all the white and the fact that they rode the deer (well, who wouldn't want to, really?).

Loved seeing your repost. I certainly had missed it the first time around. Your table reminds me of Narnia when it was always winter never spring until Father Christmas showed up signaling that things were about to change. Oh, yes, I enjoy the magic of Christmas...the Narnia magic of it all.

Pondside said...

BJ, you always make me want to laugh - I love coming to read your posts. All white?? I'm glad those ferries jumped onto the table because they are gorgeous and their little bit of gorgeous colour makes everything pop.

Olive Cooper said...

BJ, a revelation has happened here. My husband must be a fairy of sorts because he has the long and skinny feet, size 14. He is terribly mischievous too. Your table is gorgeous and the touches of red make it all the better. Our daughter played "Dance of The Sugar Plumb Fairy" at her college piano recital Sunday. Happy Christmas. ♥O

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Cute table, Beeej! How is your shopping coming? I just did my cards today, so now I can finish the shopping!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I believe in fairies...and pixies! And I love your beautiful table! ♥

NanaDiana said...

I have missed being here with new baby, 2 year old and Mama staying with us..or me being there.

Anyway, this is just darling. I have several Mark Roberts fairies, too...and I just adore them. One hangs over my stair newel post for every Season...and the little grands are in awe of them.

Those "bisquits" look decadent you.naughty.girl...xo Diana

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Flea Market Makeovers said...

I love your table. I have some Mark Roberts fairies too. I love them.

You set a lovely holiday table. Love all the white and silver decorations. The little colorful elf and fairy really set it off. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us. Have a blessed evening. Madeline

Hi BJ, Your table is stunning! I love the silver and white with touches of red and green. This one is a definite wow!

Now we just knew you had to work a little red in there! I love your faries on the white table...perfect!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

All white tablescape...beautiful, add a couple of colorful fairies...perfect!

Kathleen said...

If someone says they don't believe in faeries, one of them falls down dead? Oh my, that's just awful! Feed them one of your delicious treats and they will perk right back up!
Love your table, it's like a winter wonderland!

Sarah said...

BJ, you never fail to make me smile and chuckle. Glad you brought this one back out for all to enjoy again. It's special! I had to share a repeat too. Haven't a clue what my Christmas 2011 table will look like. LOL

I love the fairies so very cute and I have to get some white reindeer after seeing yours and Kim's! I think they make such a statement for the holidays!

Alice said...

Love all the white and silver plus the fairies colors. So pretty!

Thanks so much for all the recipes! Can't wait to try the cherry tarts. I missed it the other times you blogged about it! You are such a "sweetie". Always so cheerful and upbeat! God bless you my blog friend!

Ramblings of a Southern Girl ~ Rhonda G said...

Beautifully set table! And I LOVE your little fairy elves! Too cute!

Kelly said...

You are just having too much fun with those fairies lady! ha! I like the humor added to your table setting. It definitely makes it more playful looking. I like the added pops of color with the white anyway.

Katherines Corner said...

I love the table decor. But the story you tell as we go along is the best. Thank you so much for sharing with us. The cherry tarts look delish xo

blackheartbetty said...

Those biscuits with the cherries look lovely. I need to see if my little one will eat that! The fairies are adorable!

Julie said...

Just Beautiful BJ!!! I love the white deer.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Such a pretty tablescape, of course I love white and silver anything and everything!

I'm trying to catch up on a bit of blog reading today. I'm not ready for the holiday, but close. I have to do some baking and cards over the weekend, but other than that...I'm in pretty good shape. It is cold where you are...that must put you in the mood! I've been thinking of you too. Take time to breathe...

BJ,
Elegance gone awry!!! I remember this post well, my dear friend. Made me laugh and smile then...did the same thing today!!! I adore your sense of humor! Thank you for sharing this, once again!
Fondly,
Pat
P.S. What a lovely thank you to Yvonne! Yes, I will miss her too! But at the same time...I'm very excited to see what the Lord has in store for her!

I love white and silver. Your table looks beautiful. Happy Holidays.

What fun and cute little guys on your table! I love the centerpiece! And, thanks for the added biscuit recipe! I bought some strawberry-rhubarb tart filling yesterday but hadn't a clue what I would do with it! Now I know!

bj..you did much better than I could have done! I would never be able to pull off an all white table! Nope! :) You did good and it's beautiful. I'm jealous of that great deal you got on those sweet deer and little fairy elves.
Sweet as can be!

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

Sooo pretty, BJ! At first, when I only saw silver and white decorations, I thought I was in the wrong place. But when your fairies popped onto the scene, I knew it was your place. ;)

Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday again. Be sure to come by tonight, and see yourself featured.

Hugs,
