I added something to the top of the china cabinet last week. I'm always tweaking, even this close to the 'big day'. My friend has these on her candle sticks on her dining room table and I knew I had 2 pairs of them and lots of extra glass balls so I got them out, I don't know what they are called but I think they look so pretty with the coloured balls. The candle sticks are different but the one on the left is one of a pair and they are probably 100 years old while the one on the right is very old too.
These old 'tea leaf' dishes were my mother's.
This is a little table near the front door. I've had the little mouse for 40 years.
This vintage bowl has old porcelain doorknobs in it.
A close up of Santa.
I found this beautiful ornament at a shop on Saturday.
This glass drop is new too - two boxes of four = eight :-)
I found a new vintage house last week at the antique store. I love it and
it's in such good shape. I put it on the book shelf so a light could shine through.
Here are a few more snaps from around the kitchen.
An old yellow ware bowl, crocheted pot holder and vintage
kitchen tools dressed up with faux greenery.
A couple of old jars. The one on the right has cookie cutter
people for a 'nativity'. I saw that on another blog and thought it cute.
Cookie cutter collection including two red plastic Christmas
ones from the 50's.
An old canning jar full of vintage glass balls.
It is raining and very windy here today. Our bit of snow is gone for now
but it is calling for more in time for Christmas. That's fine with me
as long as we are able to fly out on Sunday to visit our daughter,
her husband and our wee grandson in Toronto and they
can fly in from Alberta for Christmas at his parents.
We are so excited to see them!
This will be my last post until the new year but I
will try to keep up with my blogging friends when I can.
I wish you all a very happy and blessed Christmas and
many blessings for 2011. Enjoy your time with family
and friends and be safe as you travel.
Blessings to you and yours,
