Shown below are a few of the Winter Holiday spots around our home.
Cupboard: The two large mugs and oversized coffee cup/saucer were purchased 10-15 years ago for hot chocolate and marshmallows. Now with the diabetes I only allowed myself one, two cups of hot chocolate on Christmas Eve and Day. The crewel is a (1986) Creative Circle kit called A Winter’s Night (kit number 2518). Designed by Dianne Sage. Worked in crewel wool on a printed fabric. The finished worked area is 12- by 16-inches. Frame is probably 16- by 20-inches. Cabinet top scarf is purchased, not embroided by me.
Cabinet topper cloth embroidered by my sister, Carol. 1920-30 era walnut sewing machine cabinet that held my mother’s sewing machine.
1960’s era Holiday ornaments created and gifted to me by my sister, Carol.
Dining table: Three sets of salt and pepper shakers are two reindeers, two Santas and a snowman / wrapped package. Plates are part of our Holiday china set onto which I placed Dalmatian puppy decals. Coasters for the water glasses are molded plastic holly leaves. Center piece has a Kirkland Snowy Church with batteries for flickering interior light. Spruce branches from Balsam Hill website are placed around a circle of Eight tea lights.
