FABBY: Entrance & Kitchen Christmas

Welcome to my house my friends, come on in please!  This is the entrance to our Pt. house and as soon as you come in you will see many vintage things, like the mirror which is framed with an antique piece that once belonged to Alejandro's grandparents, since the ceiling is not high as old houses were, we separated this part to the chest we have in the foyer, so it turned out great caz now we have two pretty pieces I love.  At the buttom there's a leather, almost 200 years old Spanish trunk, it was a gift from hubby's grandmother to him when he was young...they were used by Spaniards as luggage.
 The painting of the Virgin Mary is colonial art. The small hutch is an antique too and going that way you come into the den.  The door with the milky glass squares leads to the kitchen. In the top of the door a Russian icon.
 The Spanish leather colonial trunk, almost 200 years old.
 I arranged this pretty carved piece with the mirror like a mantel with my nutcrackers, another birthday gift from mother's a few years ago.  An image in the mirror of the door's wreath.
 The door is open my darlings, so come in please!
Welcome to my kitchen all done up for the Holidays Season. I'll just put on my apron hanging on one chair and serve you some tea, or coffee with cake.
 A little corner with some Christmas mugs.
My Christmas pitcher was made at our former Ceramic Co., with some flowers and a few mugs more. The blue one with the snowman is my very fav.
I saw this in one on your posts, a cookie pan with small candles and I was so lucky to have one with stars. The small saucer bowl is Italian and I use it for cramberry sauce.
My white porcelain two tier arranged with some ornaments and a Cherry-Yogurt cake, recipe at the end, it's yummy, believe me!
Next to the Christmas wreath I have a wall with my granddaughters's art work.
The tea set and the small mugs were made by us at our past Ceramic Co., I copied the design from a C'mas material.  All ready for tea or coffee with the Cherry-Yogurt cake.
I love the smoking German man, wood figure, my grands love to make him smoke, lol!
In the background, by the TV is a crack pot that I use as cooky jar come C'mas, was also made by us with C'mas designs, along with the S&P shakers. My old apron hanging on the handle of my double ovens it's so old and it looks very stained in real life,  but I love it. The red napkins were my Mil's, they're hand embroidered with a bird holding a bell, it's difficult to see, they're so small.
