Christmas at A Joyful Cottage
Hello Cottage Friends,
Are you finding time to relax and enjoy this beautiful season? I hope you are. Although I've been working a lot of overtime, I do find time to curl up with a cup of tea and listen to Christmas music, or watch a favorite Christmas movie. This week I watched The Nativity Story. Such a beautiful depiction of Jesus' birth.
I've also enjoyed some gnome crafting, because every cottage needs at least one gnome. This gnome found his way to my son and daughter-in-law's home.
And this gnome has found a home on my kitchen windowsill.
Bunnies are a bit of a theme this Christmas.
A real bunny, who looks a lot like the one on the plate, visits quite often. Here he (or she) is outside my next door neighbor's home.
I've recently developed an interest in thrift store silver trays like the one in this photo. I think it looks so pretty paired with the bottle brush tree, and the mercury glass votive holders, also thrift store finds.
I found this Merry Christmas wall hanging at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. I like how it repeats the buffalo plaid table runner.
I added a little Christmas charm to the cabinet over my range.
For to us a child is born,to us a son is given,and the government will be on His shoulders.
And He will be calledWonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
