  1. Hello, dear Poppy. I have long admired the colour of your china dresser, and it's just perfect arranged for Christmas. I'm sure you miss your sun-filled Cretan home. Sending hugs.

  2. Oh Poppy, I remember these scenes so well from your Cretan home and I remember wistfully looking at them wondering if someday I'd have a Greek home so filled with charm and warmth. You've been an inspiration for a long time! Merry Christmas to you, my special friend! Jackie xxxx

  3. My dear Poppy, your post is so lovely with your beautiful dishes and reds.

    Hope all is well with you and your into the Christmas spirit.

    Hugs dear friend,

  6. Lots of Christmas joy and beauty here, Poppy, and I love your Christmas background and header, too! :)

  7. Red, white and green the perfect colours for Christmas in your Cretan home, but also in Canada or the Netherlands, I think everywhere.
    Hugs from Janneke

  8. I love red/white/green for the holidays...Every year I think I'll change and then I wonder why? Its so festive and seems to compliment the time. Your decorations are so pretty.

  9. Gorgeous Poppy and so traditional! You must miss your home on Crete but you may have snow this Christmas to compensate. I'm a complete sucker for Christmas and fall hard for it every year. Enjoy the holidays xx

  13. Lol'ing at Tammy! She's too cute :).

    Looks like I got her beat with shutting off for the night. Yes, that's just what I was about to do when I saw this in my email and of course, had to give it a look see and see what you were up to.

  18. These pictures steal my heart, dear Poppy. Of course you know my love of these colors, not just at Christmas but all year long. But every dear little object is arranged only as Poppy can. Tea pots and St. Nicolas and snowmen families. And red checked tops of jam jars.

    Now off to renew my acquaintance with earlier Christmas posts, a bedtime treat before I retire for the night.

    Sweet dreams to you,

  19. A beautiful post, dear Poppy. It all looks so festive and pretty.

  20. What a gorgeous Christmas display! It looks beautiful. xxx Maria

  22. I have always loved your hutch and I remember how beautifully decorated it was for Christmas. Thank you for sharing with us again. I hope you are doing well...I think about you a lot and really miss you and your lovely posts.

  23. Your hutch looked so pretty adorned for Christmas!

  24. Hi Poppy,
    Your Hutch has always been such a favorite of mine and I love the way you style it! You have always had such a lovely talent for decorating and of course writing too!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours,

  25. How lovely to go back and do a little nostalgic reminiscing and I remember some of the scenes as well. I LOVE the wooden angel...with the snowman, how striking she is and I would imagine a heart such as yours must surely be very angelic in nature. May you and yours be blessed abundantly this Christmas and the New Year. Love and hugs~

  26. I love the hutch, the checked curtains and all the lovely little Christmas treasures.

    Happy Christmas

  27. OK this made me feel very Christmasy (which admittedly, is not hard to do). But I love this. I want to visit LOL!

    Have a Merry Christmas :)

  28. Be still my heart!! Totally in love with that hutch and what you have displayed in it!! LOVE IT!!
