My Heart Belongs To Scotty {and Toby}

I have always loved Scotty dogs. I think that Scottys are what first drew my attention to Mary Engelbreit's artwork. Then of course I become obsessed with cherries...and then one ME filled kitchen later...lol. Last year for Christmas my parents gave me several Christmas Scotty pieces. It was so hard to pack them away for a whole year...but it was fun opening them this year!

A small serving dish.

I flipped the placemats my mom made me over to use the black cherries design. Then I added my new Longaberger Falling Snow Hostess basket in the center of the table with the platter and a large 3 wick candle.

I promise you that in real life the green napkin matches the plate.

I have always wanted to set a table and leave it that way the whole holiday. The kids are finally old enough to leave it alone.

I ended up replacing the candle with a gorgeous big poinsettia. Oh how I would love to have each of you sitting around this table eating sweet treats and giggling about our lives.

I couldn't resist sharing this pic of Wild Child and Toby. He's such a furry little blessing to our family.
Happy Tuesday!

I would love to be sitting at a table eating yummy treats with you too!

I loved Scotties growing up. My favorite Christmas sweater had of them with little bells on their collars.
