Friday Fave 5 - A Few of My Favorite Things This Week

These are a few (5)of my favorite things this week.

It's Citrus Season in Florida. I love these Florida tangerines in a green bowl!

Poinsettia plates above my buffet table - I have three of these I bought last year just for display. I put them up yesterday.

The tablescape I am working on. I may change it up some. My house and decor is a work in progress...most of the time. (See the red bird.)

Williams Sonoma winter scene mugs - An early Christmas gift from some very dear friends.

Also...Christmas napkins. If you've read my posts, you know I love the birds!

I've been looking back over our Ski trip pictures from last year. This is one of my favorite pics from the trip.
Baby sleeping in the snow!


  1. I love the poinsetta plates. Classy.

  2. That is the perfect and I do mean perfect sized mug for coffee!!! And I love the sleeping in the snow pic!!

  3. I lived in Florida as a child and I miss the fresh tangerines from my grandpa's tree! Your picture just took me back 40 years!

  4. Very nice list, Melanie! I'm loving the clementines that are making their way into our stores. You seem to be really enjoying Christmas-ing :-)

  5. I love birds too and those napkins are adorable. And those plates are lovely. I'll bet they make the room look so Christmasy. The sleepy baby pic in the sled is too cute.
