Christmas KItchen

Some of my favorite things...............

Vintage stoneware, Christmas mugs my sister and brothers had when we were little,
one is missing, not sure what happen to it,

My Dad's Prince Albert tobacco, he had this up at the stone house cottage,
always used it, guess the tobacco kept forever...........

Ida's (my grandmother) Cracker tin,

White Stoneware,

Google Eye's!

Old wooden box's I have had forever,

Sugar and Flour tin also at the stone house, one of my old thermo's
Ida's tea kettle,

This wooden dowl? Was once on the original front porch Gingerbread, found a box full  in the
Carriage Barn, Last year I painted some white for my Shabby Tree, this year I am using
the rest of them as they are with the original dark red color, 

Will have more Christmas later,
Have a good week everyone,

Rusty Chirstmas Bells

Antique Ticking and Antique Upholstery Webbing, 

My daughter had my grandmothers love seat re-upholstered last summer,
I asked her to have all of the fabric's saved, 
I washed the fabric's (a couple layers) and the webbing,

I had the webbing in mind for the cuffs on these stockings and,
used my go-to Christmas Stocking pattern, 

New burlap, washed and pressed, 

Rusty craft bells, I tried to rust some bells I already had, 
however it would have taken so long for them to rust,
it was just easier to purchase them, 

Thank you for visiting,
