Well, I believe all the decorating is done for now. I did not decorate upstairs this year but I think I have done enough downstairs to make up for it!
I wanted to share pictures of my dining room today...hope you enjoy the tour.
I am sorry that the pictures are out of order but I am loading from my iphone and I don't know how to rearrange...so bare with me!
This is a Cat's Meow Nativity that I found in Amish country. I just love it.
I am not sure I ever did show the china cabinet. This is original to the house and full of dishes...I a have a thing for dishes! Above is the Avon Christmas dishes. Each year my Mom would give each of us one of these plate, the year they stopped making them was the year my Mom was sick..They make me smile and cry...I miss her so!
Now this is the view if you are standing in my kitchen...the living room is on the left, the foyer is straight ahead (that is the front door). I made the holly garland last year and had a tutorial on it also. There are close ups of the cabinet if you go back a few days.
Oh how I love silver pieces. I use them everywhere...My sister bought much of this set for me and my children bought the rest! I am enjoying the dining room today. It is bright and sunny but at night is it so beautiful with just a few lights glowing. If you look close you can see my Mom's china in my cabinet! Merry Christmas!!!!! Next...umm..maybe the foyer!
