Show & Tell Friday for January 4
For Show & Tell Friday today, I would like to share a wintry shelf display on my dining room hutch. This display will stay up all winter long (with the exception of the Christmas card box, which I’ve already removed) and it makes me smile every time I look at it. Here’s how the whole shelf looked at Christmastime:
I love that vintage card box, which I found in my parents’ attic.
It was really difficult to get a photo of this pop-up snow globe. I tried a couple of different times, but it still isn’t the best. The scene is Santa and his sleigh and reindeer flying over a village. These pop-up snow globes are the coolest things. A couple of different small bookstores in our area sell them. This year they had a nativity one, which I really liked, but for some reason it was three times the price of the others.
Here’s a glittery little house. I bought this in a set of 3 from Gooseberry Patch a number of years ago. I am really, really wanting to make some of these myself. I have directions, but haven’t tried yet. Maybe this year!
Here’s another house, along with a bottle brush tree (also from Gooseberry Patch). In back of the house is a Christmas cross-stitch I did a few years ago.
And here is a vintage white plastic reindeer along with another bottle brush tree. I love how the ornaments on this tree seem to glow as if they are really lights.
That is about all I have to share today. If you want to see what others have to share for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to There is No Place Like Home
and take a look.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
