Doing Some Christmas Fun

I finally got the nerve to take a hardcover book apart, I found it in the basement and figured I didn’t want it anyhow and it would be put to good use this way, love it!

Took the silver tray off the wall by the tree and used it here. The white birds I found at GW for .59 a piece.

I hardly ever show this china cabinet, it was Mr.K’s mother’s, I would love to paint it white but my stepdaughter wants it and that’s okay with me. It means I get something that I really would like but this cabinet is sooooo heavy plus it would have to be moved to North Carolina… so I wait, hopefully it goes this summer! Still love my chandy though!

I’m using the ornaments my mother had bought for me in different ways this year, I put this white bird in with my snowflake dishes. First time for these dishes to be in there too.

Added my teapot too!

I found this sparkley snowflake candle at GW this past summer, can’t remember how much it was but I know it was under a dollar and never used…couldn’t resist it!

This is showing up a yellow in the photo but it’s really not in person (Dear Santa please remember what I asked for♥)

The gravy boat even got some bling this year! My dishes are a mixture, the white ironstone was $15.00 at a yardsale, the gravy boat and saucer from GW and it is Pfaltzgraff but I don’t know what pattern. The snowflake dishes are from The Dollar Store…you see I work there part time and love it, It’s a little crazy there right now with lines like you wouldn’t believe but time there flies by because being a cashier you never stop it’s just one after the other:0 So if you see something that you like by it because it probably won’t be there when you come back, take these snowflake dishes, we had them for two years in a row this year none!

Hi Rondell!

That is a beautiful cabinet. It would be gorgeous in white. I went peeking through your blog and I see lots of white projects going on throughout your home. I like the changes. And, yes, change is good. I'm doing the same with a lot of furniture that was either given or picked up here and there. Isn't it fun?!

Take care,
Michelle

It's definitely looking like Christmas. I'd be afraid to work at Dollar Tree. I'd spend my entire paycheck there I'm afraid. But you are right, no snowflake dishes this year. Boo hoo. I hope that you are able to get the hutch of your dreams sometime soon. Thanks for posting some of your holiday decor.
