China Cabinets and Secretary Decorated for Christmas

phonegirlDecember 3, 2012

I set our vintage china cabinet with a set of Fitz and Floyd w/cups and 2 other singles. Debbie Mum plates were used on the bottom shelf. The Christmas light plates in the shape of bulbs are from Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. Most of the pencil figurines I found at a ys and had forgot about them. I only had a few before. The plates they are on say Holidays and are from Pottery Barn. The crystal liquor decantors will be in there permanently.

Notice we have two new Taxi cabs in case that bus breaks down! Not sure why I love these little taxi cabs but I do. Oh maybe it's because gas prices are sooo high!haha

Hope this will inspire some to get those cabinets filled to enjoy.LOL Opps, I forgot I didn't add the garland to the top.

Ok Lady, I have just totally run out of words on your decorating, and I know you're not done yet. The display in the 5th photo especially grabbed my attention!
WOW and W O W !

If you go to bed, I might finally be caught up on all the posts now. LOL. I think I have one more post of yours left

hugs, Karen who's shaking her head in amazement at you

I'm exhausted just looking at your photos.

I am so psyched.

It's neat how your pencil figures fit so nicely in the little spaces...great use of that space.

I need a nap just looking at the work you've done.

it is so hard to comment on your pictures because I don't want to leave anything out so I will just say love-love-love!!!!! I will point out that I especially like the apothecary full of ornaments in the last picture. As always I can back and back looking at your pictures and see something new TFS .....

Beautiful! I'm a sucker for those trees you have on top of your cabinets. The more the merrier is what I say!

jeannespines! Love all the cone trees in, on top & among those beautiful F&F plates in your vintage cabinet! & the pencil 'characters' on the 2nd shelf is a cute idea! Last yr I got hooked on these 'pencils' & displayed them on that narrow mirror on table so I've collected a few, too! LOL!

Ohhh...I am just ooo-ing & aahhh-ing over the secretary/ decor! The pop of the 'lime green' color is unique! All the different ornaments & 'pretties' & the pockets decorated & the larger red & gold trees in front look great!

& I love the big covered glass jar w/colors & shapes & textured ornaments! 'Blues' look really good up there on that cabinet! You are very inspiring, punk...& it was way past your bedtime to go to work this morn when you posted this! ;-) Jeanne S.

Punk..your antique cabinet looks outstanding!
Love your FF & Debbie Mum plates. They're beautiful.
I got hooked collecting pencil
Santas yrs ago and I see you have a nice
collection too. I like how you mixed them in.
I how you decorated your new secretary.
I'm actually seeing what a large piece it is and how it
really shows off all your beautiful figurines so nicely.
Seems like you've been working round the clock both at home and at work...
I hope 'your boss'...doesn't catch you sleeping on the job!! lol

"Lawd have mercy!" I have one question...what do you do with all of the other great stuff that you had in the cabinets BEFORE you decorate for Christmas??? So many wonderful things...I could spend forever just looking at everything. Coveting the Debbie Mum plates and that white sleigh is gorgeous! What a winner of a job!

Marlene, thanks. You are so funny. I don't have a clue where I put everything that was in the cabinets BEFORE I decorated for Christmas. All I can tell you is I have so many totes for each Holiday that they are in some of the orange ones out in the shed.LOL You are so sweet and thanks for the wonderful comments.
