Happy December 1st!...it's really here!...I am not done yet with my Christmas decorating but wanted to share with you what I've accomplished thus far...
...olde ladderback that sits next to the entertainment center...I stitched the wee pinkeep with elements from a Stacy Nash pattern and the Primitive Bell Ornies are sold in my shoppe...I sell them in the ornaments category but they look cute in a bowl with greenery too!
About a month and a half ago or so I got a "new" table for the entryway, it replaces the little chippy white table that I had here for a very long time......here it is dressed for Christmas:
my primitive olde pie safe:
a closer look...the lovely chalkware santa was made by Maureen of Buckbrush Farm:...standing in the foyer you will also be looking into the dining room...I have decorated my foyer table with a few festive bits:
...and here is what I've placed on the dining room table...the Mock Mice Teeth II table runner is sold in my shoppe...I love the festive color!...the candlesticks were made by Don & Pat of Olde Bittersweet Farm:
...another pinkeep that I stitched from a Stacy Nash pattern:
...another olde ladderback...this one sits on the fireplace hearth, it is the chair that I usually have filled with dolls!
...here is the little dough box table that hubs made a few months back...a Sweet Surrender placemat in Brick/Black is just the right textile for this little space...other color choices are available as well...the gingers and candy canes were made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow:
...on the cabinet that hubs made a couple of years ago, I've got a couple things the same as last year and a couple things different:
...the light that hangs above is new, made by a tinsmith here in Virginia:...the candlestick is one made by Don & Pat of Olde Bittersweet Farm:
...the primitive reindeer was made by Maureen of Buckbrush Farm:
...my coffee table bowl looks very much like last year filled with all sorts of goodies made by all sorts of fabulous artists!
...the olde wash stand:...brown paper packages tied up with string are just a few of my favorite things!
...the sign above the blanket crane reads, "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas It's the best time of the year!"...I think that must by my all time favorite Christmas song:...I only change out this area of the black stepback and I've placed a 24 inch Primitive Pine Tree in a favorite olde basket and filled an olde wooden bowl with Williamsburg Christmas early style potpourri that is sold in my shoppe:...a closer look at the shelf above...I got these chalkware santas last year, they were also made by Maureen of Buckbrush Farm and the sweet little Merry Christmas dish is a piece of American made Redware available in my shoppe:Ok that's going to do it for Christmas Decorating part 1...I hope you enjoyed my pics...I thoroughly enjoy looking at all of yours!!
Until next time...
