Christmas Decorating Around The Cottage--REDNESDAY!
This time of the year, Red = Christmas! I started decorating about a week ago, and I'm almost positive that I'll be done by December 31st! So for the next few REDnesdays, I'll be sharing my progress.
My Santa mug collection, on the kitchen windowsill. It's official: no more room for Santa mugs on the windowsill! It's very liberating to know that a collection is complete, and you cannot and should not buy any more.
Little vintage bottlebrush wreaths, hanging from every knob on the kitchen cabinets.
One of my vintage aprons, with an elf peeking out of the pocket. I got lucky finding this apron, because I was smart and packed it away with all of the Christmas decorations. Finding the rest will unfortunately require tearing apart the cabinet holding all of the vintage linens. Darn! When will I learn?
I picked up this tablecloth at a thrift store, and this one I will cut up, to make kitchen curtains and a tree skirt.
I'm not done decorating the green cabinet yet. It will probably have nothing but vintage light-up stuff on it, but in the meantime I almost can't stand how great RED things look on that green cabinet! Ok, so that's how far I've gotten, and I've got a long way to go. As I unpack each box, all I can think is: I've got to pack all of this stuff up again in a month. Either I have way too much stuff, or I must be getting old, and I refuse to admit I have too much stuff!
If you would like to see more reds, head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue hosts this fun party every week!
