I was going through photos of Christmas decorations that we had last year and comparing them to this year. Looking through these brought back a flood of memories...funny how a photo will do just that! Just thought I’d share some of last year's photos and then some from now. The dining room sure has made some transformation, too. These are from last year......
This is how the sitting (now dining room) looked last year. The old green hutch got painted white. The photos after this one are our decorations for this year. I have to admit, I love the room as it is now.
This BEAUTIFUL quilt was sent to me, as a surprise, from a dear and sweet blogging friend, Sinta. She made this quilt and kindly shared it with us to “keep us warm and cozy” this Christmas. What a blessing….
Thank you, Sinta!
Simple tree with burlap, dried hydrangeas, ornaments from friends, and pinecones that are from my mother’s yard. Kathy, there is the butterfly that you sent to me to put on the tree in memory of Jordan. I hung it with love from YOU.
The Christmas morning table is set with the hand crocheted tablecloth that my dear Grandmother Katie made. For the center of the table, I flipped over a vintage green pottery bowl and put a plate on top to hold Santa and some red balls. The dishes are old pink and white restaurant dishes. For the chargers I used a 15” wreath from the Dollar Tree. (I love that store!). Each person gets an old creamer to hold their pancake syrup in.
and may you have a sweet and cozy little Christmas.
Best wishes from our cottage to yours....
Happy Birthday, Jesus!!
