I have not had my usual zest for decorating this year.  Although, it's not over yet so maybe there will be an explosion one of these days.

I did put together one of my favorite decorations the other day. 

This sits on the counter at our breakfast bar so I can enjoy it from the kitchen sink area.

I found an old flour sifter at an antique store and filled it with clippings from our cedar tree.  I also made a few applesauce cinnamon ornaments that have stood the test of time. 

I filled a little bowl with cranberries...fresh out of the freezer so they frosted up for a minute...along with a votive candle and another cinnamon-applesauce ornament.

As a place mat I made one block from a quilt pattern using primitive looking fabrics and washed it to make it all crinkled.

Progress.  And, so far, the cats aren't interested.  

13 days....

  1. Your new display looks very cozy, Pam--love the cinnamon applesauce ornaments. I remember making them when the guys were little :)
