~CHRISTMAS - Part 2~

Happy Monday, dear friends!!  I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit today!
I'm continuing my theme on sharing more decorating, and this time the focus will be on a small corner in my dining room!!  There are LOTS of PICTURES, so sit back, relax, and enjoy!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

 Here is a full view of the corner!
The bottom corner cupboard

Santa picture and some favorite things on the top shelf

Old firkin with aged patina and rose hips

Tin lantern in RED

Wonderful prim Santa in Brown, a gift from my husband a number of years ago

Sweet little mittens made from old cream wool

Old wooden bowl, filled with potpourri, and a Plum Pudding I made (a Homespunheart Primitives Pattern) sitting on a painted game board
surrounded by old jars with zinc lids, old graters and an old muffin tin!  Of course, I had to hide the outlet under one of those graters!!  If you look closely you can see some of Bella's artwork on the wall!!

Little black corner cupboard filled with some smalls

Top shelf filled with lovely things!  Notice the wonderful wax Santa mold, made by my sweet friend Mona of My Old Crow Primitives, holding a little twinkle light! 

Red Belsnickel and a framed postcard

Love the colors and the sweet little bird

Green Belsnickel and a MakeDo Pear Pincushion I made from vintage velvet (a Stacy Nash design)

Bottom shelf in black cupboard

 Close up of mustard Belsnickel with some old chenille for decorating his feather tree!
Even Santa decorates!

Both shelves

Old wooden stocking forms with some red jingle bells

Prim Santa stocking in aged ticking that I made (a Kentucky Primitives Pattern)

Love the reflection of the stocking forms in the mirror!

Two velvet birds I made, perched at the very top with a small Nantucket basket filled with greens!

One final look!
