December CupboardScape

Good evening all.
It warms my heart that so many of you
loved our new bedroom.
I read aloud to Bob
each and every comment you wrote.
He was beaming and smiling from ear to ear.
I am so proud of him!
Thank you all for making his day!!

His dad had a small home improvement business,
where Bob learned how to do pretty much everything.
He often still works with his cousin who is a 
General Contractor when not working in our store.

Tonight I am trying to be festive.
My daughter's cast is off her leg,
and she is now in what they call a 
fracture boot. 
Her next appt. is on January 10th.
We have been trying to figure a way we can
get her and the kids here for our family Christmas
this Saturday...however they are predicting
snow and sleet now. 
Not a good combination for one who has 
a broken leg and cannot put pressure on it.
We may have to bring Christmas to her on Sunday.

I did manage to add a bit of Christmas cheer
into my last CupboardScape of the year.

This jolly ole elf is from the 1940's.
I purchased him last year
at the Webster Flea market in Florida.

He fits nicely in with my tree of silver
don't you think?

I have been collecting silver ornaments
for a few years now 
and believe I may have enough
for this tree.
The smaller ones at the top are antique feather tree ones,
while the larger ones are vintage ones.

The tree topper is an antique.

I wrapped a faux feather tree in white lights
just down the center stem from top to bottom.
The bulbs sparkle even more because of this.
I purchased the tree from Hobby Lobby many years ago.
In fact the year I bought them to use as displays
for our primitive shows, I had many many
folks want to buy them...but I explained to all that
they were not old and not for sale.
I did however tell then where they could purchase one.
Hobby Lobby no longer sells these at my store,
so not sure if they are available anymore.

That does it for another year of 
Thank you again Barb for giving me this idea
to showcase my primitives in a suitcase.
I had fun deciding each month what to put in it.
Hope you enjoyed them too.

Also hop on over to
Merry Wind Farm. 
Melinda is having a sampler pattern giveaway.

Year End CupboardScape Blessings To All!

  4. I love suitcases, for my little show I use one that my grandfather carried on the greyhound bus back in the forties. It is black cardboard and peeling badly. All your things are just beautiful. You really have a knack for making things that way. Stay warm everyone.

  5. Hi Janice,
