Christmas around the house

The shelf over the kitchen window.

The tree is up and decorated and the house is all festive with it's Christmas finery
placed here and there in the kitchen, living and dining rooms.

Our new kitchen cabinets with the display shelf over the window and sink.

This is McSanta and his wee dog, Scottie. :)

This candle is burned half way down now.  Love it!

This little tree I got at Home Sense a few years ago.  I have
LED battery operated lights on it.  It sits in a 1 gallon crock.
The tree in the background in the dining room is in a 2 gallon crock.

This is a vintage Santa face from the 50's that I put on the mini tree top.

Our living room and Christmas tree.

The ornaments are a mix of vintage glass balls, new sparkley ornaments,
crochet snowflakes and icicles.

A sampling of the ornaments.

Dining room china cabinet.

The top of the drop leaf table.  Notice anything new??
Hint.  Pink and aqua.  Yep.  Two new Putz houses!  Aren't they pretty?
I have enough to do a village now so maybe next year I'll set one up.
I hope you enjoyed the Christmas tour of our little home.
I'm joining Debra for Vintage Inspiration Friday.

We had a bit of wet snow here this morning to cover the green grass and
it's going to be colder this weekend so it may just stay a few days.

Enjoy the day!

  6. Wow! Everything is gorgeous! Love the shelf in the kitchen. I have a Yankee candle burning too! Your tree is so traditional and timeless. Warms the heart!

  7. Everything looks so lovely. You must love having that shelf above the kitchen window to decorate! I also really like the trees in crocks...way cute. Oh I'd be very content to have some tea and chat the afternoon away with you. Your living room window is so nice and there must be a wonderful view of the snow and trees.

    I was shocked to learn about all the snow and power outtages in the Maritimes. I even heard that PEI was closed off from the mainland for a while. We are still not ready for is still not quite there...but I know that everyone else is!

  8. Your home is beautiful and Christmasy! I love your tree and ornaments. Have a nice weekend!

  9. Pamela, your new kitchen is Gorgeous! I want one so badly (and a mudroom) and love the way yours looks. Trouble is, we're do-it-yourselfers and where will I cook while construction is going on? I guess there's always the basement, lol.

    Your home is so beautiful, love all the ornaments and the new little houses.
