Christmas Decor (Plus Some Ugly Truth)

Hi Everyone!

I am joining Rhoda's Vignette Party. I hope you'll join as well!
I am showing off my hutch. This teak hutch has been living in the garage since June and I am thrilled to have it back in the house. It usually holds framed photos but this time I thought it would be happy holding my Christmas dishes. These are things that I have collected. On the top shelf, there are mugs that I bought from Macy's about 15 years ago, on clearance. The amber plate I found at the Salvation Army a couple of weeks ago. 50% off! Yay! The other plate on the top shelf is a Santa's cookies plate that was a gift from my mother several years ago. The bottom shelf is 3 sets of gold rimmed dishes, one set with Christmas motif, the other two are bone colored. I love to mix and match my table with these.

My mom made the stocking when I was little.

Antique side table. This is the furniture that I am not allowed to paint or re-do in any way. On top is my $1 garage sale lamp. The HoHoHo was a $1 score (I think from Target) and the amber candy dish used to be my grandmother's. The eucalyptus bark was picked up on my lunchtime walk.

The tree. I think I may add garland later.

My Salvation Army angel.
 And, the ugly truth. Everyone has such beautiful dining tables! This is my dining table right now. No dining happens here.

Your table doesn't look that bad! Just a couple of big things to move. Love your hutch.

Nice finds! Your tree is very pretty. Mine is up but needs something more - not sure what.
Your dining table looks goods compared to mine. :D
Enjoy your evening
