Christmas Corner Cabinet



As many of you know, my corner cabinet in the dining room at Love and Life at Leadora is always decorated for the season.   For Christmas, I always display my Spode.  Throughout the years, I have been given lots of Spode.  I even have a punch bowl!    I wish I could use my Spode throughout December, but it is not dishwasher safe, so I only use it for special holiday occasions.  In the meantime, some of the pieces sit in this corner cabinet so that when needed I can access them easily when special guests arrive.



This is one of my favorite snowmen!    As you can see, the ornament is actually a snowman's head, but I placed it on top of one of my Spode teacups, which became a little snowman body.  Also, this year I lined the back of my shelves with red and white ticking stripe to give this corner cabinet a little extra holiday "oomf". 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my dining room corner cabinet!  I love hearing from you, and I am always so appreciative of your lovely comments!

    I just saw a magazine recently that showed how to make fabric "lining" for a book shelf; very similar! What a neat idea!
