If you stand at the front door and look left, you see the dining room. The china cabinet was my grandmother's. She brought it back to OK from her family homestead in KY in the 1940s or 50s. I'm so glad she did!
I like clear glass/crystal vessels. They look nice at the holidays with sparkly ornaments and/or sparkly garlands.
Mom recently gave me this nativity set. It's from the 1960s and is the one she and dad had when I was bitty. It may be plastic, but I love it.
I used this thick, sparkly garland in many places in the house. I don't know why, but the way it looks in this light fixture reminds me of ZsaZsa Gabor…
If you got the newsletter I sent today, you'll recognize the angels below… the one on the right was made by our son Jeff when he was 3. The other two were made by our grandkids when they were each 3. Elanor's is in the center, Jack's is on the left. That boy has BIG hands!
I'm traveling to NYC in the morning to visit Jeff and Celia. I'll write more Christmas decoration posts tonight and schedule them to go up while I'm gone. I may also tweet and post with news from NYC if there's time :-).
AND – if you have not signed up for the Piece O' Cake newsletter, I did post two new videos: on paper piecing hexagons and how to applique inner points. There are some other new things… click here to go to the what's new page.
