More Signs of Christmas

Welcome , Come on in !

This candle is on a shelf attached to an old window made into a mirror in my entryway.You might remember this little table from a past post.

OK , so I might have gotten carried away with the hydrangea this year. But it was so pretty and there was so much of it , I couldn't help it. Did I tell you I love hydrangea...

Not a lot of signs of Christmas here , but all the greens and reds , and the homeyness of the

arrangement makes me think Christmas , there is a little twig of greenery and berries.

See !

And I put out my vintage Christmas table cloth that I found a couple of years ago.

I love it , and it is in almost perfect shape.

Doesn't make you smile ?

Then there is this , one of my most favorite things in the whole house.

My Hoosier style cupboard.

A couple of the doors are a little warped and wonky , but I looked for one I could afford for such a long time , and when I cleaned it and painted it
It was just what I wanted.

I had a lot of fun finding thing to put in and on it for Christmas.

You might recognize this from my header.

Found the two Christmas plates at a flea market.
And the runner at a craft fair.

That is the back side of the bowl and pitcher , there are chickens on the other side, but it looked too busy so I just turned it around.
I found the little red bowl set at Big Lots.

Well that's pretty much it as far as my decorating for Christmas this year.
I just kinda wanted to keep it light.
I think it's just enough to keep the Spirit.
And to make me stop and think what Christmas is really about !

Thanks for spending this time with me !
