As our kids grow and leave, and we get closer and closer to having an empty nest, we are little by little putting new traditions into place, all while trying to hold on to some of the old ones. We find ourselves in the position of moving our Christmas dinner to Christmas Eve and moving our traditional chili Christmas Eve meal to Christmas day. Minor changes so far!
My DH bought me an absolutely awesome Christmas gift this year! Actually, he bought me several very nice gifts. This particular gift is one I had been eyeing for a few months now at one of my fav stores. And some of you will find it very strange that for a person who enjoys refurbing furniture that I would prefer a store-bought piece. But this was made with old barn oak and distressed to perfection! I had been on the look-out for a china hutch to re-do, but nothing was ever quite right.
So here is my lovely china cabinet:
When I took the pics there was nothing in it yet. I have since moved all the things out of the top of my corner hutch. My family didn't think it would all fit, and it didn't...quite. I put a few things down below. For example, my china plates don't fit at all. Ah, well, they will have to be stored below.
If you are in the Midwest, stay safe! If not, sorry you can't be snowed in ;)
Merry Christmas from my family to yours.
