Festive Corners

Welcome to my Home if you're taking the tour! My antique cabinet that I bought when we lived outside Boston gives me lots of opportunity to display pretty things. I collect sugar and creamer sets that you can barely see. I only have a few. The santa mugs I found at a garage sale. My husband drank out of similar mugs as a little boy. The plates on the bottom are from Williams Sonoma and Pottery Barn. The china is Noritake Royal Hunt that is appropriate for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'll have to do a tablescape one of these days.

This is a collection of vintage Christmas cards that all have a Scottie dog theme. A friend of mine let me choose out of her huge collection. Her Uncle had saved every Christmas card he had ever received from the 20's, I believe. They were all neatly organized by year. This was before we had Buddy who is a Cairn Terrier, cousin to the Scottie.The long stocking is from Home Goods. The red one, I knitted last year from this pattern. I used a light blue velvet ribbon. I'll have to take a closer picture for you.

Others posts have shown close up photos of the side tables in the Living Room. I'm sure, I'll post more. ;-)
