Christmas in the Breakfast Room

When I start to do my Christmas decorating, I always start with the breakfast room and kitchen since I spend so much time in there. Having it all decorated (for EVERY season) always makes me happy! This year we have the hutch that Joe made in here and I had fun decorating it!!! As you can see I have all my snowmen in here. They can stay all winter! I use batts of cotton for the "snow".
 I made this arrangement on the sled, last year.
 I did my 2 shelving units too. They are actually plant stands that I have had for YEARS!!! The shelves are tiles.
 I sat a little snowman in the basket and hung snowman pictures in here too.

 Some details of the hutch.
 See Mrs. Snow lady with her FUR stole? She is so precious:)
 The tiny deer are made of sticks and were bought at a craft fair years ago.
 Almost all of my snowmen were purchased at craft fairs over the years. I LOVE hand made items. I then added things like the little shovel and "deer crossing" sign.
 The snowman lamp on the top shelf and the snowman lantern on the next shelf give off a soft glow at night.
 The snowman on the top in the middle is made from a fence post!
 And he has a red bird on his hat.

 The tree is also in here, it is the ONLY spot in the house that it will fit. I hope you saw my post yesterday, I shared the tree. Here is the link if you missed it: http://designsbypinky.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-tree-is-up.html

 Let's turn on the lights!

 I took this right after I finished decorating the tree, before we put the table back.
 Hope you have enjoyed this little tour. There is LOTS more to share so PLEASE check back each day. I am MOST grateful to my loyal followers, and love you all!!! XO, Pinky
