I’ve admired all the hot cocoa stands and wanted to set up one for us.
So I gathered some ideas and set to work.
Since our weather is somewhat unpredictable these days I decided we needed cool drinks as well as hot ones. So on the menu is hot cocoa, hot tea, lattes, cokes, and sparkling water.
You may recognize the green tool box on legs that I found thrifting here. It holds candies, peppermints, and pirouettes.
Over on the tiered stand you can find cups, milk bottles, and little glasses as well as cokes and sparkling water.
It is sure to be a big hit. My grandkids kept an eye on the process the last couple of days as I was putting the beverage stand together.
We are all ready to dive in.
Now for the last of the vintage finds transformed into Christmas decor (well sorta).
Here is the Santa counted cross stitch I found in the hideous gold frame? This isn’t exactly what I had in mind when I took it out of the frame; but to be honest I ran out of time, and this is just a temporary fix.
My plan was to use the artwork in Little Lost Angel for a Christmas banner; however, I received several comments from readers about how much they loved the book so that project isn’t going to happen. Instead I’m going to start a tradition with my grand-kids of reading it on Christmas Eve.
