A Kitchen Christmas

Welcome to my kitchen!

Remember when I told you my whole house changes over for Christmas?

Yes, even the kitchen.

There are a couple special pieces in my kitchen…

The “Our Father” sampler that you see is one that my Mom made when she was young.  I absolutely love it and had Tim frame it with wood from an old door we found!  

The ‘garland’ you see around it is made up of vintage cookie cutters that I found at Goodwill…I just tied them on some twine.  I had the snowflake garland for a couple of years now and just didn’t know what to do with it.  I think it makes a perfect addition to this garland!

Kitchenfridge2015As you can see the snowmen adorn the top of the refrigerator.  I decided to get them out-of-the-way this year and it’s the perfect spot.  Christmas2015





As you turn to the left you see the kitchen window.  Of course I had to put a few Christmasy items up there too!  I especially love the glass snowflake.  I found it at our local Kess Gallery a few years ago.

And the potholder you see on the left of the shelf?  I knew when I saw it that it was special.  Not only did it remind me of my Mom, but it was hand stitched.  The women I bought it from said that their Mom had done the stitching on it sometime before she passed away.  What a treasure.


On the top of my metal cabinets I put a few more snowmen.  Aren’t they ADORABLE?  They’re some of my favorites!




On the top of the white wood cabinet, I’ve placed the gorgeous, bright snowman that I bought at the last buying show I went to when I owned our store.  I LOVE it!  I purchased many of my decorations at these shows at cost!






The wonderful ice bucket inscribed with the ‘O’ was a gift from my sister and her fiancé.  I love the look of the shiny red balls inside!

And that’s it!

Our kitchen may be small, but I love it.

Next up…the front porch/craft/workshop area.
