My Christmas Cupboard


In the corner of the dining room is my Christmas Cupboard full of my lovely Christmas bits and pieces. It remains Christmassy all year round, sitting quietly until it comes into it's own during the festive season.


It is full of special plates, Christmas mugs, jugs, special glasses and little keepsakes that need to be displayed all year around because they are just too gorgeous, to put away in a box!


My mugs are a mix of hand painted Italian Holly mugs, Cath Kidston red, Merry Christmas ones and some Emma Bridgewater classics. They come out the week before Christmas and get swapped over onto the kitchen dresser.


I love my champagne flutes with the splash of red up the stems


and I love my red glass wine glasses - very festive.


I had to have a festive tea cosy and this pudding one is perfect.


A new addition, is the hand painted holly bowl that I did on Sophie's birthday. I'm looking forward to getting that out and filling it with some festive treats.


It seems I have started a little collection of puds - hanging, felt, fabric, wax, sparkly - you name it, I seem to have got it. There are worst things you could collect!


Finally there is my gorgeous Christmas wreath and SPARKLE tealight holder.
This cupboard will be getting my full attention over the next couple of weeks and I'm sure one or two new bits might find their way into it before the festive season is out!

So pretty. The perfect thing about the bowl is that you have to eat your way through the treats to see it in al it's holly goodness!
