Itsty Bitsy in the China Cabinet



Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm sure you're all like me ~ so very busy, cleaning house, buying and wrapping presents, cooking and doing all the things we do at Christmas getting ready for the celebrated day of our Savior's birth.
We attended a wedding last night at the Railroad Museum 12-12-12! 
It was wonderful!
A middle aged couple tied the knot!
There was a beautiful catered sit down dinner and then were entertained by a murder mystery group.
They picked folks from the audience to play the characters. 
No, no Nannette! I declined most profusely! :)
It was just so cute. 

Well, anyway...I wanted to bring you into the dining room to show you what I've been up to.
 Nothing fabulous or over the top.
I just put in my simple little Christmas dishes on the shelves.
I'm thinking I need to paint the backs of my china cabinet a soft light color.
What do you think? I'd love some suggestions.

 
 Added a few crystal pieces.

 I had to swing the doors open so you could see.
The glare you know! :)

Now here's what I wanted to show you.
You know I've been making little glitter houses and then I made some teeny tiny itsy bitsy ones minus the glitter and added them to the china cabinet.
You can see them a bit better HERE if you've like.

 I made three of these little tiny house sets and added a set to each shelf.
Here are the green ones.

 Blue ones.

 I found this sweet little figurine a while back and thought she looked perfect with the blue set.
She looks like she's waiting for Santie Claus to come!

Then the red set!
You know I have to admit, I have a lot of fun!
Ain't life grand! :)

Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The Holly and the Ivy


The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown,
Of all the trees that are in the wood,
The holly bears the crown.

O the rising of the sun,
And the running of the deer,
The playing of the merry organ,
Sweet singing in the choir. 

 The holly bears a blossom
As white as lily flower;
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To be our sweet Savior.

The holly bears a berry
As red as any blood;
Any Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To do poor sinners good.

The holly bears a prickle
As sharp as any thorn;
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
On Christmas day in the morn.

The holly bears a bark
As bitter as any gall;
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
For to redeem us all. 

 The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown,
Of all the trees that are in the wood,
The holly bears the crown.
