We find ourselves back in the dining room today finishing up a look at the Christmas decorations. I thought you might like another look at the dollhouse all set for the holidays.
The oil lamp that belonged to my Grandmother finds it's way to the sideboard. I remember what it once looked like at her house this time of year and remember the smell of the oil burning.
The table wears it's Christmas quilt that I made last year at this time. It was a great stash buster, using many different red prints. The wonderful thing about this quilt is that whenever I look at the individual fabrics, I remember other things that I made with it.
By the window stands a small tree that I made a few years back. The garland is made from sheet music and the tree skirt is lace from the Civil War era.
A small church pew that found it's way into my heart and home several years ago makes me wonder about the people who would have been sitting there for a Christmas service.
A cross-stitch picture my Mom made hangs on the wall and reminds me of a simpler time.
A favorite item in my dining room are these Rudolph dishes. Whimiscal and charming and must have once held cookies for Santa. Off to the "Pretty Room" tomorrow! Blessings!
