Christmas in the Dining Room

It’s Christmas time in my dining room…the buffet has been decorated, the tree has been trimmed and touches of greenery added for holiday fun.

I decorated the buffet with touches of pink, silver and snowy greenery.

The Victorian Noel cross stitched picture was made several years ago from a free pattern I found online.

Pink ornaments are nestled in a Homer Laughlin covered bowl, sans lid.  An epergne holds pink spire ornaments.

Hanging from the lamp are a cluster of three ornaments decorated with beaded ornament covers.

Standing on my grandmother’s sewing machine cabinet is one of my favorite trees.  It’s decorated with vintage ornaments from the 1940’s-50’s and knee hugger elves from the 1960’s-70’s.

The tree skirt was made from an old chenille bedspread that belonged to my grandmother.  She loved chenille bedspreads and this one was her favorite.

Sitting under the tree is my small collection of Mark Roberts fairies.  This one, Spirit of Hope, is my favorite.  A portion of the proceeds from sales of this fairy were donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
