  1. I see Hallmark has a new Christmas stove ornament out. Could be really cute as is or with some bashing for someone's Christmas scene or dollhouse. I think it's adorable and a bit more modern than the Christmas cookies one that I love so much! (Thanks @jbresr Donna. ) If I get one I will probably pull all the stuff off the cook top and remove the towel, and then spray paint the red bits white.... I can never leave well enough alone. https://www.hallmark.com/ornaments/keepsake-ornaments/o-come-all-ye-hungry-ornament-1595QGO1782.html
  2. From the album: Christmas Kitchen in a Breadbox

    The fridge, stove, pot rack, hanging baskets, and green wire shelf are all made from Hallmark ornaments. The fridge and stove are slightly out of scale (especially the fridge) so I scratch built cabinets to work with them. I also scratch built the butcher block island and shelf over the fridge. The table and benches are from a kit, as is the cabinet over the stove hood. The breadbox itself, I bought on clearance from my local miniature shop. It was raw wood and I stained it red and did all the finishing inside, including adding a false wall for the windows. It has a lid with a plexiglass-covered opening so you can see the setting even when the breadbox is closed. More details and progress pictures are on my blog.

    Here's the finished breadbox with the knob attached. I didn't like the knob that came with it so I got this replacement off Etsy. The silver design reminds me of snowflakes. (You can see a close-up here.)

    My dad helped me electrify the stove and hood with screw-base bulbs attached to plugs. The bulbs can be replaced if they burn out. The plugs are plugged into sockets hidden behind the cabinet. There are more details on my blog.

    I scratch built the cabinets and farmhouse sink. There are step by step photos on my blog here, here, and here. The view out the windows is from a photo taken out my parents' front door in the Boston area after a blizzard.

  6. From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    Aside from the utensil rack and Santa head tureen, I also found this pretty little Christmas tree decoration. It isn't completely flat, so mounting it against a wall will need some ingenuity. I love the idea of adding a new ornament each year with the date. I started with the little birdhouse with 2014 on it, and now the 2015 tree can add some more quirky fun to the interior of the Arthur.

    I added this cookie jar after taking all the other pictures. This is also a Hallmark ornament. It's a tad large compared to the accessories around it, but I think it works tucked away in the corner.

  8. From the album: Christmas Kitchen in a Breadbox

    When I bought the roombox, the lid was falling apart and needed to be removed and glued back together. (Maybe that's why the roombox was on clearance!) I also replaced the plexiglass, which was scratched up, and my significant other helped me come up with a better way to hinge it. It's not quite finished -- I didn't like the knob it came with and am waiting for a replacement to come in the mail -- so I'll wait to post pictures of the whole roombox until the lid is finished. But for now, here's a teaser shot...

    The roombox is lit up with three fluorette bulbs hidden behind the "beam" at the top of the box, plus there's an outlet on the left wall (under the bench) and two on the right wall, hidden behind the cabinets.

  10. From the album: Christmas Kitchen in a Breadbox

    Since the room doesn't have a fireplace or a tree, I'm using the table as a shrine to Santa. The cookies and mug are a mini Hallmark ornament. The view out the window is from a photo of my parents' street after a snow storm. The hurricane lamp plugs into an outlet under one of the benches.

  11. From the album: Christmas Kitchen in a Breadbox

    The table and benches are made from a kit I got at a flea market for cheap. They're apparently based on plans published in an old Good Housekeeping magazine. The radiator, like the stool next to the stove, is mainly there to take up space since the angled lid leaves more room at the bottom of the wall than the top. The hurricane lamp plugs into an outlet under the bench by the wall. You can see it if you really twist your head to go looking for it, but at a glance it's well hidden.

  12. From the album: Christmas Kitchen in a Breadbox

    The wire shelf is made from another Hallmark ornament (a kitchen rack shaped like a Christmas tree). I made the cookbooks. More details on my blog. The wall over the table is too empty... I'm planning to cross stitch something holiday-themed to go there.

  13. From the album: Christmas Kitchen in a Breadbox

    I wanted to put another cabinet to the right of the stove, but with the lid closed there's very little space to do so. Since the lid closes at an angle, there's more room lower down than higher up, so the stool just fits.

    The stove hood is the metal one from Houseworks. To match the appliances and sink, I painted it then coated it with gloss varnish.

  15. From the album: Christmas Kitchen in a Breadbox

    The gingerbread ingredients on the island and scattered around the kitchen came with a gingerbread prep table I bought off Etsy. The seller gave me the option to have them glued down or not, which is a good thing because the table that came with them turned out to be way too big for this setting.

    I painted the hair of the couple to match us - her's is red, his is brown. I also added an "album" on the right-side end table that says "Family" on the cover. There are three wrapped gifts on the ribbon in the front, representing our three children - two gold for the girls, and one green for our son. I had a lot of fun putting this together!

    This was originally a Hallmark Ornament saying "Our First Christmas Together - 1992" I bought it at a Craft Bazaar last year for $1. Our first grandchild was born in 1991, so 1992 wasn't exactly our first Christmas

  18. From the album: Miscellaneous Minis

    Originally it connected to a Christmas tree light and the fireplace flickered, and maybe the little lamp lit up - I'm not sure. But I added an LED light as a ceiling light, covered by a bead. The wires are hidden behind the white flowers, and the switch is by the green leaves on the left.

    I took the ornament apart and re-housed it in a china teacup and labeled it "Our 50th Christmas - 2014"

    This project was for the NAME Hallmark Ornament Contest 2014. The only rules are to use an unaltered Hallmark Ornament - and create any scene you want. I chose to use a house in an outdoor setting, inside a roombox.

  22. From the album: Miscellaneous Minis

    This is the from the series: Nostalgic Houses and Shops; #28 Arts and Crafts Bungalow, done in 2011. The inside has a Christmas tree. I figured the house is HO scale, or 1:87.

    Aunt and Uncle and Grandma are unloading the car (looks like Grandma caught a snowball) - everybody is glad to see each other.

    The theme is Home for Christmas - and here we see all the bustling activity of arriving relatives.
