My favorite gift this year...

...was from my mother who gave me my great-grandmother's wedding china-
monogrammed with a 'K'. I love the beautiful and simple design and the gold-leaf.
I used it for Christmas dinner last night and mixed it with my wedding china
from Bernardaud and my brass silverware that I picked up in San Francisco last year-
a full set from Bangkok.

It was a wonderful, white Christmas filled with family and friends!

I also used, for the first time, the antique carafes I picked up at a local antique store
just last week. These were made in Italy and were once used as wine carafes.
It was a fun addition to our holiday bar.

Now where should I put these majestic lions?
