Little by little we are finally getting the whole house decorated, and I have our china cabinet to show today. You all may remember that this is really a vintage armoire, first converted into a bar (remember when Pottery Barn was doing those?) and now remade to become a very roomy china cabinet.
The space behind the toile curtain is crammed full, believe me, and the shelves are my fun place to decorate! I just painted the cabinet white and added the toile recently, and I have been really looking forward to decorating it for Christmas.
These adorable cardinal plates were the inspiration for this vignette. I found them last fall at Ross, and it was love at first sight.
The red birdie cage came in from the living room, and vintage faux Fostoria bowls became a snowy stopping place for these sweet glittered cardinals.
The plaid plates, scored at the thrift last year, coordinate really well with the cardinal plates. Really, these are one of my favorite thrifting finds ever! I adore plaid, and I have never seen them anywhere else.
I had fun mixing in my black and white gingham plates, too. And Bordallo trees, of course! More glitter cardinals sit atop julep cups topped with snow.
It's time for Marty's Tabletop Tuesday, at her gorgeous blog A Stroll Thru Life. I'm also linking to Sherry's Share the Decor party at No Minimalist Here and Donna's Christmas Reveal at Funky Junk Interiors. Since I have already posted most of our holiday decor, here are the links to our other holiday decorations --

And our lights outside
Also, I know that I've received lovely messages from so many of you, and I promise to visit you soon! We have just wrapped up a major high school project (of course during the holidays!), and my job during this last week has been to give craft guidance, relinquish my computer to the projecters, and serve up a steady stream of sustenance for the hungry teens. I'm looking forward to catching up on everyone's blogs, and finally reading all of your sweet comments!
