Dressing the Dresser for Christmas

My favourite piece of traditional British furniture is the Welsh Dresser.  In the States, we call it a sideboard or china hutch.  Our dresser is the focal point of the dining area and always gets festooned with a few special ornaments for the holiday season.



This year it is a roosting place for snow birds who are tempted by all those red berries. 



Of course, you will recognised these two cheeky birds.  They are the models featured on the holiday blog header.   I must dash... it's time to 'deck the halls'.

    1. Thanks, Janice... a working dresser should be cluttered. This one is tucked in a corner where I can't get to it or it would be stacked to the ceiling! ; )

    1. It is beginning to look like Christmas here. We have a saying here, 'If you stand still too long you will get decorated for Christmas'. : D
