Christmas 2010/Cloche party

Wow it has been a busy time around here. I can't believe how long since I added to my blog.

When we remodeled the kitchen in 2007 we married a set of shelves ,I bought at an antique mall,with a newly built base. We used the kitchen cupboard doors from the old sink base. The tile was a bargain and the storage is great for dishes. I wanted to display some dishes.The only problem I needed a plate rack to stand the plates.We made on Monday night.Added a wood strip to each shelf to hold the platters to keep them from slipping. Now it is a great place to display my dishes. The original plate rail is back up and looks great.
I have collected the green Christmas pottery over the years and found another piece this year. The candle holder in the top right corner.My dishes are are some I got a few years ago. The snowman dishes were a dollar store purchase.They are mix and match. The lamp base is a ball jar.I am linking to cloche party and Seasonal Sunday
It is not exactly a cloche but fun just the same.
I will share the table pictures soon.

I got 4 table pieces done for friends. Always nice to have a new center piece.

The decorations are further along.Of course I am never done tweaking those. The entertainment center is the focal of the living room.The tree in the dining room is my santa tree.

The aluminum tree is so fun to have this year. Still needs the vintage ornaments go on it.

Time is short the kids and families will be here a week before Christmas.Maybe I will let the kids do it.

Some of the baking is done.More will be done tomorrow.
Still have so much sewing to do.
We are in a blizzard tonight.First of the season.
Could have done without it but mother natures had another idea.
Merry Christmas j
