If I did RED for Christmas

 If I did red, which I rarely do, this would be my Dream RED Christmas.  Its simple, its kinda country and somehow even though its red, its Quiet and I'm just one of those folks who wants and Needs a quiet atmosphere.
  This table setting suits me perfectly. in fact I'm looking out my family room window and there's a holly with its red buds on it. 
:: I'm so sorry. I have this in my christmas inspirational file and I have no clue of the Source~ I would surely give them credit if I did::

 There's something about this that reminds my of my Nana's table.  She was a simple woman who never worried if folks stopped in unexpectedly. there was always enough for however many came to the table.
Whatever happened to folks sending out Christmas cards. I guess emails have taken their place. I love REAL cards and I cherish the ones I have saved. 

I could sit out here on a chilly december afternoon and be a very happy camper. I'd definately need a cup of hot tea and maybe a few cookies..
  Later in the evening after dinner I'd plop myself right down in front of this fireplace and listen to Christmas carols while some sugar cookies baked .

  When I couldnt hold my peepers open any longer I'd crawl into this bed and off to dreamland I'd go, hoping I'd wake up to a soft snowfall when I woke up..

 Be sure to go to Marty's Tabletop Tuesday
 you'll be inspired by all the folks who post on her party and you'll probably find something you might like to do to.
I hope you enjoyed going with me on this red christmas dream...
 I wish you all Sugar plums and sweet dreams..

  2. Red is my favorite color...and I love red at Christmas. Gorgeous pictures. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. That is just enough red and the white is right. I love red checks anytime.

  4. I love it Sonny. Funny I was just thinking about red and white today for our tree...not sure what direction I am going in this year.

  5. i love red...and it is a bit weird but i also have to have quiet. i enjoy cozy quiet days and evening. ;)

  6. All of these images are beautiful, Sonny. I love the thought of curling up in front of a fire while sugar cookies bake!! And that bed looks so unbelievably comfy and cozy!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. Great pictures, Sonny! I could just picture everything you were "dreaming" here. I'm not sure what colors I'm going to be using this year. I've got lots to choose from in all my boxes and bins.

  10. Those are great inspiration pics, just lovely. I like that the red is subtle and the decor is really pretty. Thanks for visiting!

  11. Hi Sonny,

    Great inspirational photos!
    I do love red at Christmas...

    All the Best,

  12. Considering my home is full of red, you know my vote is loud and clear RED. Sonny, RED, Sonny, RED.....:)

    Quick update. Went to doc this am and he is stumped as to what is going on. He thinks I might have 3 skin issues from heart monitor going on now, because there are 3 totally different looking marks and now I have to see a dermatologist. :(

  13. Oh, I do love that chair with the snowflakes on it! Love red too just doesn't go with my stuff but I still have to use it until I replace everything, which wouldn't be painful at all:)
    I can't wait to see your kitchen too!


  14. Sweet images of red Christmases. Loving the fireplace pic. Diane

  15. Red is also my favorite color. It looks so dramatic against an all white background. I am going to 'try' to do that this year. It never comes out the way I plan, but that is what I shall try.
    I love all of the images that you showed today, they are so relaxing and 'quiet'.
    Hugs, Cindy

  16. These are beautiful inspirational pictures. Thanks for sharing. Red & white is my Christmas theme this year as well. I'm a new follower, please drop by whenever you have a chance.

  17. Sonny, what lovely inspiration pictures. The red and white Invite us in to discover homespun touches and heartfelt hospitality. These rooms make me think of the cozy places families might gather for the holidays. I will join you for the afternoon and evening on the bench and by the fire. After that, I'll invite all the little ones to pile up on the bed and snuggle down for a Christmas story. I might want a cup of eggnog on the nightstand for when I finish, though.

  18. I enjoyed your red dream. Pretty pics.
