Antique China Cabinet

"November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows."
             ~Clyde Watson

   I hope everyone is staying warm! It feels like winter has arrived here - the snow is falling thick and fast. My Mum and I were out yesterday and remarked on what a nice, mild Autumn we have had and then overnight it was transformed! I think we jinxed it. At any rate the snow does help you to begin to get in the mood for Christmas. I'm sure I will start decorating in the next couple weeks. I like to wait until after Remembrance Day before I start (American Thanksgiving is much to late for me although I know a lot of people who like to wait until then:). In the mean time there is a new addition in my house that is very pretty! - A little antique cabinet that has been re-invented. I love the gold details on the glass and the stencilling in the interior. Its round shape is so beautiful! I hope you like the pictures! 
I also recently completed a large order of Gillyflowers for a lovely customer of mine and when they were all finished I took a few pictures of them lying all together.

I have also added a few Christmas-y treasures to the Etsy Shop including two beautiful stockings! Be sure to have a look!


I am sharing with:
