Christmas Dinning Room

The homestead dinning room is shinning for Christmas these days. The smell of balsam fir fills the room. Tarts melting in the tart warmer as light shows through the punched star design at the computer desk today.

Little pines a glow with lights in the crocks on the hoosier cabinet.

Simple pine sprigs with bells & pine cones added to my bowl rack. Candles a glow inside the mason jars on the candle shelves. The bowl rack & candle shelves were made by Firecrackerkid Primitives. There is a link in my side bar that will take you there. Oh so many nice well made wood items to purchase.

Candles lit & decked in pine sprigs & rings.

This is the display I was working on the other day. I like how it turned out. It looked good on top of my sewing machine box.

I found out that the wooden trencher is called an ol barn sink. It is staying on the dinning room table for Christmas. I put a real pineapple & a sprig of pine with bells & pineapple in it. I added my old black crow & a little mouse in the corner. The red apple adds a splash of color.

The living room will be next to spruce up for Christmas. As yet we still need the ol Christmas tree to grace our living room. We ordered one online & we are waiting for it to be delivered. Sam is asking a lot. When will it come? I can only say that it was confirmed it was loaded on a truck to be shipped. I have called to confirm we would be getting it for sure. It has been raining here off & on all day & it is a bit cold out there. We still have some hunting going on today. Chicken breasts are in the slow cooker for supper tonight. I must be going to come up with the rest of supper before hungry hunters get home.

Blessings Til Next Time!

  5. Looks fabulous! Glad you are enjoying the slow cooker, isn't it so great for so many yummy recipes and saves time! My husband misses hunting, since the girls were born he has rarely gone. We r quite different though, I don't like hunting, I understand for food, but I could never do it and I eat only little bit of chicken and turkey, lol
    Have a great night!
