Well I had certainly intended to share so much more with you this December. Holiday traditions, decorations, and gift ideas, for example. But, alas, this blog is an outlet just for me. My family come first. So I spent the season very busy with the kids, family, and a little crafting.
I also found some time to do a little shopping at an antique store. That’s where I found this beauty! Merry Christmas to me from my mom and daddy. :)
I decorated her for Christmas as soon as she got in the door. I used ornament balls from the dollar store and the thrift store under the cake dome. The doily underneath was made by my late Aunt Martha. The tiny crochet stitches are so intricate and beautiful.
The Christmas dishes I inherited from my sister when she no longer wanted them. Yes, there is a salad plate missing.
And some tatted and crocheted snowflake ornaments. My mother is an avid tatter and made me a bunch of these. I did the round crocheted ones.
I love having another area to decorate for the holidays, but my favorite part of the bakers rack is the chicken wire mesh doors. Perfect place to store my home canned goods.
I wish all of you a very blessed Christmas. I pray the peace of the Christ child will fill you and your families in the coming year.
