My previous Accessorizing post has reached its limit, so I am going to do a Part 2. You can get to that post by clicking on the link below.

These photos are from my Christmas 2011 dinner.

If you click on the pic, I think it will take you to my Flickr page where there are alot more pics.

I used green water goblets in this photo, but then decided to switch back to the clear.

Judith, my compliments to you are well deserved. I wish I had half of your talents.

Did you ever finish your home remodel? I remember seeing pics on the Smaller Home Forum.

mona, thanks again, I am glad that you like my pics, and that some others like them too. I sure enjoy other peoples creative offerings that post here at GW and on blogs.

The only other thing I have gotten done lately was to add in a chandlier above the dining table. My fix-it guy is too busy now to come back with his new job. I will try to find someone to at least do the 6ft wide wall dividing the DR from the kitchen. Although I don't think I will be able to do too much else.

Unfortunatly my cancer has come back, and although I am fortunate enought to have insurance, the copays and paying out the deductable is using all the rest of my available money. I will try to post a pic of the DR with the chandlier and a new table-setting, but I am limited to my "good days", the chemo this time is really kicking my butt. But, we'll see how it goes.

Thanks again for your appreciation, it means alot to me, especially at this time in my life.

You definitely have a gift for not only with making the most beautiful tablescapes and vignettes, but also taking pictures of them that are just perfect.

I love all of your dinnerware, flatware - I'm just in awe. The green ceramic charger plates are exquisite.

I'm sorry to read your post about your cancer coming back, but look forward to seeing any future pictures you post when you're feeling better.

They are definitely magazine worthy!

Caroleoh, thank you for your kind words! I so enjoy doing photography, tablesettings, and decorating! Unfortunately with my cancer back it is really slowing me down physicially and financially.

I had bought the green charger plates at either T.J. Max or Marshalls a few years ago, there used to be much more of a selection then, but with this economy, the "pickings" are slim in my area.

Better late than never I suppose. Just a few photos of Christmas 2013.
The tree looks so much prettier in real life, it really did not photograph well....

Closeup of some of my collection of snowflakes, I have quite a few more, but this is all that I took of them so far.

Bar Cart. Excuse the mess next to it, I didn't remove it before the pic (I can always retake it since it is still up)

Looking into dining room. Part of the centerpiece.

One last one. It shows a part view of the coffee table centerpiece on a mirrored box.

I'm glad to hear you're doing well again after such a horrible battle with the cancer returning and the Chemo.

RE: Accessorizing 2

I've never seen these photos before, Judith, you've created an incredible feeling of "specialness" for all your guests. It's wonderful. I'm sorry to hear of your cancer and will support you with my prayers. Some journeys are just so much harder than others. I love that you continue using your creativity and keep it up, it's the doing that gets us through these tough times. God bless you.
