Hello everyone! Thank you for your sweet comments on my fireplace makeover and sugar cookie adventure. The girls and I took the cookies to church on Saturday and we had three other helpers to decorate. They looked very festive and everyone had lots of fun.
I've been doing a little Christmas decorating in my kitchen lately. I call this hutch my "pie safe." I found it at a resale store a few years ago and repainted it, changed the knobs, and put lace on the shelf edges. To help with the vintage look, Phillip took out the glass cupboard doors and replaced them with screens.
I usually keep a cake plate and various tea dishes on it, but wanted to give it more of a Christmas look.
I measured the back of the hutch and cut a piece of plaid fabric with pinking shears.
I attached it with double sided tape and a couple a thumbtacks (way up high where the holes won't show)
Next, I layed down this shimmery gold fabric and placed my cake plate in the right corner.
Candles in the left corner.
A cookie tin that happens to be the same print as the fabric! (I got the fabric at Walmart this year, but the tin at a resale store a few years ago.) I also placed a small doily on top of the tin.
A Christmas book.
I found this cream and gold trim tea set (along with 8 tea cups and saucers) at a yardsale a few months ago.
All ready for a cup of Christmas tea. Thank you for looking at my newly decorating pie safe!
On Christmas Day
