Christmas Decorating, Advent

I love the colors of Advent (See my Kerrie's Home Journal blog for info and post for First Sunday of Advent).  I decided to decorate the kitchen table with advent colors instead of the usual after Thanksgiving Red and Green deco.
   The colors of Advent just happen to be my favorites, purple, lavender, pink and white!

This lovely ornament from Marydon fit right into the color scheme, too!

I already had the little basket flower holder and this is one of my clay birds I made a few years ago.  He is much more lavender in real life.

And the cup and saucer with Morning Glory flowers on it was from my mother's collection.  It is on the mantel my hubby made in the kitchen over the table.

I just love this tiny 2 x 2 inch plate that is hand painted china.  I bought it from the artist at a craft show.  My Mom also was a china painter.  The object next to it is a fossilized whole clamshell I found many years ago.

Another little gift from Marydon that graces my window over the sink is a little silver vase made from a butter knife handle.  I added flowers.

And this is a picture of my kitchen from the bedroom hallway.  The room beyond is my living room, the El part where my piano sits.  The French doors to the left open into our den/everything room-ha!

Thank you for visiting and come again soon.  For a quick Beef Stew Recipe, visit TWO HAPPY.

My heart to yours...
