Christmas on the Sunporch

You didn't think you'd get by this Christmas Season
 without an invitation to the sunporch now did you?

Come on out, it may be a little chilly,
but the sunshine is warm!

This is my "partial cats" pic.
Do you see the "disappearing" one toward the bottom left?

My Baker's rack is loaded with paperwhites in my white pottery.

and a fun Christmas find at Leola's Christmas Open House this year,
was the great vintage red plaid umbrella!

My camera has been returned, and actually because it was still under warranty, I think I received a new one. I don't know if you can tell, but I have a new lens for Christmas and I'm lovin' the detail!

Miss Jenkins on lookout.

I've loved using a gifted seed box from my pals Brian and Meloney
filled with old kitchen utensils and cookbooks.

Welcome to my Shiny Brite obsession...

Are you pacing yourself this week?
Wrapping is done,
grocery shopping tonight
last minute errands tomorrow.
Kids will be here Thursday!

Don't know if you've noticed it, but there's been more "color" this Christmas in blogland. After a few years of just neutrals and white, many of us really wanted a touch of the traditional red and green this year. I've really loved seeing all your homes and decorations. Don't forget this is our last week for Vintage Christmas, so be sure and join in for the party.

I'm joining these Christmas Parties:

  13. Too Cute Debra! Love the white pottery and all the reds. So inviting. Wishing you a wonderful Merry Christmas. Ciao Rita

  14. Hi Debra,
    I love your sunroom. And the new lens on your camera really makes the subjects standout even with the harsh backlighting from the windows. So pretty.

    I see the kitties really like it in that room and I can see why.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.


  15. Love seeing your sun porch dressed for the holidays and different seasons. Very cute and cheery.

  16. Oh your sunroom is so pretty! I think I would be spending alot of time out there!

    I have a bakers rack similar to your- actually just like yours except mine has a wine rack where your drawers are. Did you do the drawer thing yourself or did your remodel your piece? Would love to know how you made the drawer space if you did!

    bee blessed

  17. I love your sense of style in this room! From the colors to the patterns (I love plaid!) and accessories, it looks like a dream sunroom to me!! I also think your photos have gorgeous clarity and the sunlight is so inviting!
    Merry Christmas

  18. Ohhh, I love it! We have alot of the same kinds of things. I haven't posted my porch yet come check it out I should have it posted tomorrow. Yours is so very pretty, would die to have all of those old ornaments!

  19. Really now I think you need to publish a book featuring the sun porch in all seasons. It is and you are book worthy my talented friend. luv♥o
