~ A Few More Christmas Pics & Some Links! ~

I am slowly making progress with the Christmas decorating....the mantle is actually done but I can't take the picture until husband goes up in the attic and brings down the olde sled that I lean up against the wall on one side. I'm kinda stuck for ideas in a few areas and I'm waiting for a couple of goodies to come in the mail which should help LOL, I think it's fun to have a few new things to play with! So here are a few more pics for now. I'm sure you remember this folk art cabinet that hubs made recently:Here's a closer look at what I have on top....the bench was made by hubs from a tutorial that was on Char's blog a while back and I got the other little wood piece from Winterberry Prims last year. There are two Schneeman candy canes, a Jackie Schmidt doll, and a pillar candle with a poinsettia stitchery made by Shelly Auen. The Belsnickle Santas, the jar candle, the Gingerbread man that is peeking out of the drawer, and the hogscraper candlestick are all items that I sell in my shoppe!
Here's a little table that sets in the entry way. The bird was made by Tammy, the little flicker candle that is wrapped with fabric was made by Betsy, and the homespun mat is from Olde Thyme Homespun, I also got a new tree skirt from them too and it's very nice!This is the top of the crock bench husband made some time ago, I don't have the bottom part done yet. The doll and the kitty were made by Betty and the jar candle is one I sell in my shoppe, it smells soooo good and I love the scent throw on these!Here's how the foyer table is looking. There's a basket with gingers and candy canes made by Barbara and on the mirror's shelf you'll see a tiny doll from Ghost Island Primitives and a pinkeep made by Lisa. On the pegs is a wee Onion Basket made by Pam that I filled with faux cranberries, a Stein bird, and a cute hanging flicker made by Betsy.The breakfast nook table....the painted wood server bench hubs made some time ago, the hogscraper candlestick is one I sell in my shoppe, and I got the cute prim tree in the box from Winterberry Prims a couple of years ago.
Lastly for today, here is the dining room table....the sun was shining in bright yesterday when I took this picture. The Belsnickle Santas and the Colonial reproduction table runners I sell in my shoppe, I got some preserved cedar branches from Early Farm Primitives, and the olde basket I won recently on ebay for a really great price!
The weatherman is saying we might get a wee bit of snow tomorrow, I'll believe it when I see it!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Merry Christmas!

Everything looks great Janet. You have so many wonderful decorations. I've started decorating but nothing looks the way I want it to. I guess I will just have to keep trying.
Enjoy your weekend,
AMY

Hi Janet, It is so nice to see so many handmades in your Christmas displays!! I love the basket with the preserved cedar. I have been trying to get that for years and when I finally find a source it is sold out. Yours look wonderful!

And the cabinet your hubby made looks wonderful all decked out for Christmas.

We may get snow too - I just hope not until later in the evening!

Have a great weekend!

Janet,
Everything looks wonderful!! I've got part of my decorating done and hope to finish up next. It has been another busy week getting ready for my oldest DD's baby shower. Can't wait for Monday to get here so that I can get off my feet for a bit.
Have a great weekend.
