My Dining Room Full of Gingerbread Goodness!

I got my dining room all decorated with mostly items I made over the years!!  I left my table rather plain because I had a lot going on in the hutch.  I thought about adding a wreath to the window, but I haven't...I think I need to just leave it as it is & get to making Christmas gifts!!  The table & chairs came from Craigslist after we moved.  I sold our last, much larger set before moving.  I got the new set for the same cost as what I sold the old set for.  It worked for me!!  The hutch is my mothers, that my Dad built for her.  She doesn't have room for it, so I have it.  It is made out of rare Hawaiian wood that is no longer available.  Guess I won't paint it!!  So here is my dining room...
The room looks dark because it was foggy & dreary that day.

My rooster prints I got at a sale for $7 for the pair! 
This isn't my fav light fixture, but I decorated it anyway!

My hubby wasn't impressed!!  Too Gaudy!!

I made all the gingerbread cuties!

Another gingerbread girl I made...
My Mom made this one for me!  Love it!

My spoon rack, a spoon I decorated, & a gift from a friend, the little plaque.
I hope you enjoyed your tour of my dining room!  Don't forget my 20% off everything in my Etsy shop. Now...back to ornament making...

Hi Cindy!
Your dining room is very pretty! Is that Koa wood that the hutch is made of? I use to have living room chairs made out of that same wood! They were from Hawaii too. And VERY strong wood.
Talk to you soon! :)

It is a lot of work to decorate, I think the first year in a new place is the most difficult. I really like your gingerbread hutch. The crystal drops on the chandelier is a nice touch too. I'm sure you have lots on your to-do list for gift making, hope we get a peek.
