Dining room decorations finally done!


Come in for a visit.  Oh I wish I could have you all for a sweet Christmas Luncheon,  I think I would serve, creamy chicken noodle soup and rolls, a light sweet spinach salad, and perhaps Baked Alaska for dessert!   Anyway, I guess we can dream!
This year it was more about displays and some vintage ephemera decorated and glittered up a bit!  There are lots of pictures so sit back and enjoy.  This is just the Dining room!

My new collecting fetish will be these Santa mugs!
                                                                     On the Buffet!

I took an old sheet music and made this wreath, then added a chipboard glass glittered sleigh to accent.  ( I cut it out with my cricut expression)
Also glittered this cut out 'peace' and bent it around one of the candles!

Framed some vintage images from old books.  This one came from a very old "Ideal" book

I was given this superbly beautiful vintage bottle brush wreath last year, by my good friend Camille and it is probably my most favorite decoration that I have now!
Nativity on one of the shelves!  ALSO a favorite!
I received this image with some vintage buttons from the recent button ornament swap, along with the felt holly, so decided to make something out of it.

I enjoy Christmas Tins
My Christmas China is the original Christmas Tree by Cuthbertson.  I have loved it for many many years!  Also notice the transfer ware urn, that I found at Goodwill in AZ for a few dollars.  I just had to have that!
A bowlful of vintage glass ornaments
I crafted this snowman last year!
Added this new Putz church to the mix this year.
 
Another putz house that was a gift, and this finishes up the decorations in my dining room.  In the next post you will see what is in the living room.  I hope everyone enjoys their Christmas decorations as much as I am enjoying mine!

It's so hard to pick a favorite. Love the vintage art all framed up but I think I love the wreath the best. What a fun room you have!

Your dining room decorations are spectacular - so beautiful. I particularly like your lovely shelf unit and Christmas china and your snowman from last year - all stunning! We'll be putting our decorations up this weekend, then it will really start to feel a lot like Christmas x
