LITTLE SPLASHES CHRISTMAS

Because my dining room and living room have served as crafting lab and production station for the past two months, and is currently a weekend open-to-the-public handmade holiday shop, I've held off on decorating those rooms.  It's a bit unnerving, as they are usually draped with my beloved baubles by now. However, I've managed to adorn my kitchen with curious little splashes of Christmas.  The flavor for this season is homey, vintage, general store-esque...... with a pinch of kitsch.  It's subtle, but I'm finding it quite delightful.

Aren't these Twelve Days of Christmas cloth napkins just darling?  A client of mine passed them on to me.  They're just too pretty to smear a holiday feast upon; I think they'd make for a fabulous banner, though!

I had just enough vintage glass baubles to fill this scale tray with, and especially love the look paired with the colorful candy canes.

Not a creature was stirring..........  This sweet little felted mouse, a gift from a friend, quietly perches on my kitchen window.  Washing dishes won't have to be a lonely task.

I love decorating for Christmas, don't you?
