In the past, I usually tended to go a bit overboard on my Christmas table vignettes.
Which meant, there was little table space for entertaining . . .
~ ~ places for drinks and an appetizer or two.
This year I solved that problem by containing the vignette in a basket . . .
~ ~ so that it could be removed easily and room made for entertaining guests.
I do not get much of a chance to do much crafting . . . but I really do love to.
Several years ago our Craft Group in the neighborhood, “The Crafty Chicks” . . .
~ ~ made these great felted wool Santas.
That was before I was blogging and I would have definitely had a tutorial.
I enjoyed making it so much that I made four of them.
I began creating the Winter Woodland Vignette by placing this tree . . .
~ ~ made of cardboard, evergreen, and pinecones into the basket.
Added greenery and cute animals and birds of winter . . .
I have been collecting these owls over the years.
Love to incorporate lots of birds into my holiday decor.
Another Quail by Raz sits on top of one of my very favorite books. . .

I am pleased with my Winter Woodland Basket Vignette as I still have ample table space . . .
~ ~ and can easily be removed for even more space.
Do you use baskets and trays to contain seasonal and everyday vignettes?
Have a great day . . . we are experiencing record breaking temps . . .
~ ~ broke the record from 1903! . . . and the kicker is . . . our heating system went down!!
So we will have to crank up the fireplace until the repairman arrives!…BRRRRR!!!
