Go, Go Ice & Snow!

I hate to say it, but it was 60 degrees yesterday in Southern Illinois.  That only means that next week we could have ice and snow that prevents us from moving much!  That is the weather in this part of the country.  I don't envy my blogging friends in the northeast this past week.  I can't say that I'm a big fan of snow and ice.

I do, however, enjoy setting the table that reflects icy weather!  How crazy is that?

I've mixed my Shannon Crystal with part of my collection of Depression Era Glass in the Waterford Waffle Pattern.  It was made by Hocking and really came on the scene after the Depression at a time when real crystal was coming into vogue.  Those who couldn't afford the real thing, might have been able to afford this pressed glass variety. 
I love mixing it all up.

I'm joining Seasonal Sundays, so make sure you click through the favicon to visit the party!  Thanks to our hostess.  Don't we have fun at our parties?


  1. What an interesting story about the Waterford Waffle pattern. I didn't realize that they had a category of crystal which would have been considered Depression glass. Just goes to show it wasn't all cheap stuff. It's a lovely set, so nice with the snowflakes.

  2. What a beautiful table, lovin' the dishes! That's the only kind of ice (and snow) I'd like to see for a while:@)

  3. This is just so stunning! Elegant. Just love it.
    Thanks for stopping by too!

  4. I'm crazy for glassware so your setting wins me over.
    60...how did that happen.

  5. It's like a winter wonderland on a table top! Very pretty.

  6. Gorgeous!
