There is a blog party going on over at Kim's blog
Savvy Southern Style called A Homespun Christmas
with the theme of Christmas Vignettes/Mantels.
I have many vignettes around the house for Christmas but
chose this one for this party.
This is an old enamel teapot I found that I use at Christmas
for fresh a greenery arrangement. The greens came from our own trees and are stuck in wet florist foam. I added faux berries,
dried coneflower heads and red dogwoods sticks to it.
It is part of a vignette on the busiest counter top in our kitchen.
Just so you know, it doesn't always look this neat and tidy. :)
We keep our King Cole teabags in the jar on the left and
pistachio nuts at Christmas time in the jar on the right.
In the corner is a little lamp and an antique wooden kitchen
box whose use I'm not really sure of.
The pot holders came from a store years ago called Jennifer's of Nova Scotia and they are my favourites that I really only use as hot mats at Christmas time.
I love pistachios don't you?
I like the traditional reds and greens in the kitchen.
The vintage tray was a find that I painted and replaced the green
cloth background with muslin. The lace doily came with it.
I hope you will come over and visit or perhaps join this little 'party' to start off the month of December.
Have a wonderful week.
I said in my last post that I'd be posting about a Country Christmas Tree Lighting
but that will come tomorrow. I hope you'll come back and visit.
