Anything Goes on Marty's Tabletop Tuesday


Today, Marty said we can post just about anything for her Tabletop Tuesday Anything Goes party and she suggested maybe we want to show some presents we got for Christmas.
So, that is what I am going to do so I don't have to think too much, lol. You can see all the other participants at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/ . Thank you for hosting again, Marty!
We opened presents on Sunday because we were too tired driving back from Pensacola on Christmas Day and John still had to do hospital paperwork as soon as we got home. It just makes it more fun since it extends the holiday celebration. Do you see the tiny hat on John's head? LOL! AJ sent it to him and it is a University of Michigan (his alma mater) tree ornament. He loves it of course. Go Blue!

The frame above which I just finished hanging, is what I gave him. I ordered it from Maria of http://personalizedsketchesandsentiments.blogspot.com/ . He really likes it. He was amazed at how much it looks like his Sevres eggs. I had to point out that it is drawn with his name "John" all over and he got even more impressed after that.

I like it up there.


He gave me a set of 9 Tiffany sterling silver spoons with gold wash bowls in the Palm pattern. He got them from Ebay and he sent me the link afterwards so that I can have the information. I could not believe how much he paid for them. I guess I am going to have to keep them forever and never sell them in my store, lol.



I placed them in tiny vases in a cloche to give them a special place.


They are monogrammed but I could not figure out the letters except that it starts with an M. Turned the other way, it could read like a W so it must really be meant for us.



I think they are really pretty and of course I love the "Tiffany" mark.






John also gave me more Old Britain Castles dishes to complete my collection. I started with 8 dessert bowls that I bought from Marshall's and look how many pieces I have now. All I am missing now is a tea set. I already have a lot of cups and saucers too.




I love them and I love the fact that he feeds my dish addiction.


His daughter, my stepdaughter, sent me this Coach purse and a wallet and scarf. She knows my Coach addiction too, lol. Thanks, Kerri, I really love it. See? It even has my maiden name initials, CC.


This I gotta show you. It was in my stockings. It's a pair of reading glasses with built in lights. It makes me smile everytime I wear it. It's really pretty cool!



Here it is with the lights off.



I got other presents like shirts, another purse, lots of body lotions, etc. but I will show you just one more. My daughter sent me this set of jewelry. It's perfect cause I wear a lot of black outfits. I love it. Thanks, Rochelle!

Thank you again for stopping by. I hope you all have a Happy New Year and that blessings continue to bestow upon you throughout the years to come.
