Last year I made 5 shabby chic decorations for my tree and this year I finished 5 new ones and a topper.
We have a little area to the side and part of our kitchen called a Hearth Room and that is where the tree stands. These are the ornaments I added this year and the tree topper which is my tribute to the birth of Jesus.
Two are a tribute to Queen Victoria and Albert and I also added some Victorian candle clips.
Time to clean up the crafting mess downstairs. And like you too, I will be doing my share of baking now.... Have you enjoyed some crafting, baking and decorating? I got to my crafting rather late as it had to wait until tea cozies were made first but I am glad I made some new tree ornaments.
Fort Collins, Colorado years ago and shared it on this blog.
Here is a close up of some of the
very old vintage and antique
garland pieces on the tree:
I have a mess in my basement right now as I am making 5 ornaments and a topper to add to my Christmas tree. Glitter abounds on the tabletop and floor. I also have some serious preparations to do as some friends are coming over Wednesday for our "progressive luncheon" to 3 of the homes. Our 4th lady friend lives in Fulton so she is joining the rest of us.
Yes, I am a bit of of a teapot queen as of late as I acquired these 2 teapots too. One is a Jackfield English teapot on the top with a gold painted deer and the other is a commemorate 1897 Queen Victoria Jubilee teapot from England. My kitchen window and our recent snow yesterday and today:
So I hope you are enjoying the season and all the blessings of baking, decorating and fellowshipping! And take time for tea:
