If you peek across the hall into the bathroom you will find a touch of Christmas spirit there, too. On a little shelf at the end of the counter. . .
And on the back of the 'potty' Christmas accents add to the usual decor of the room.
When you step into the dining room you will see that the Christmas Cottage decorator didn't miss anything in here, either.
Closer to the table you can enjoy each piece that was lovingly placed there.
The top of a little antique china hutch wasn't overlooked.
My grandfather's old library case is filled with some of my dear mother's cobalt blue glass collection.
Near the corner of the dining room this cute old toy phone rests on the bottom shelf of an old table that holds her modern-day phone. My dear mother saw this in an antique shop a few years ago. She loved it but didn't want to pay the asking price. A few days later I went back to the shop and negotiated a better price. I wrapped it and put it under her Christmas tree. She was surprised - and happy to receive it.Peek into the kitchen and you can see this pretty centerpiece on the little kitchen table where many wonderful meals are shared with family and friends.I hope you enjoyed this tour of the Christmas Cottage. Oh, wait! There's my dear little mother. She is glad you stopped by today. If you are ever in our town she would love to show you all of her treasures and tell you the stories behind them. You will find a welcome here no matter what time of year you arrive.
