A table from the past...


Christmas Dinner
1958

My grandparents lived in a townhouse for a short period of time in San Antonio, Texas. It was a tight squeeze for Christmas dinner butwe did it. Here is her Russell Wright pottery and milk glass water goblets.
Not shown is the gingerbread house she made for us. She enjoyed our enthusiasm when she surprised us with it.

Oh how beautiful! I love looking back... I can almost smell the food cooking and hear the laughter in the background:)

Have a blessed day my friend! HUGS!

I remember it well! Love that tree too.

Have a wonderful time with the grandchildren. Making memories with grandparents is magical.

Best,
Bonnie

What a pretty tablescape. I love the petty milk glass. How fun it is to have family dinners and such sweet and precious memories. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

What happy memories! I never had a Christmas dinner or Thanksgiving with my grandparents, as my grandmothers died young. Aren't we lucky to be grandmothers now, ourselves? Have fun with your little visitors!
