~Christmas Under Glass~

I filled the black cabinet, in the breakfast room, with Christmas dishes.  We use these just about every day, through the Christmas season.

I filled the vase about 1/2 full with water and added a few fresh cranberries.  I used cuttings from an evergreen next to the back porch and scrap evergreen, from Lowe’s.

If you have a Lowe’s or Home Depot, nearby, check to see if they have scrap cuttings, from Christmas trees.  I found a large carton of scrap evergreen, in the garden area, at Lowe’s, earlier this week.  I’ve used these trimmings in the past. They have always been free of charge.  It’s a great way to fill in artificial greenery, indoors or out.

Thank you for your wonderful comments on the Christmas in the Dining Room and Branson Outdoor Christmas posts.  I read and appreciate each and every comment.

We are putting together a tree, in our hearth room and a living tree in the living room, this week.  I’m also working on a few vignettes and the hearth room mantel.

I hope to take a few minutes to bloggy visit, in the next day or two.  I am excited to see all the Christmas decor, in your homes.
