Christmas Kitchen

12.10.2010

I have finally gotten the kitchen finished with a few holiday decorations added to it. The kitchen was kind of the dumping ground while all the other decorating was going on, but now it has been all spiffied up. What that isn't a word? It is now. My kitchen has several cloches and jars, too so I can join Marty for her holiday cloche party. Don't want to miss that. Lot of photos, but not a lot of words.





























Hot chocolate anyone. Mr. Savvy loves his quick hot chocolate.




I have had this cookie jar forever and when you take the lid off it plays Christmas music and the battery is still working. Bailey barks when she hears it.











This is the rug I won from Kat's giveaway awhile back.
I love it!





This rug is in front of the sink and it came from Lowe's a couple of years ago.


Another old cookie jar and it still plays music, too.














I bought real colored bulbs to go in this jar and then found fake ones at a dollar store after the fact. Oh, well I like the real ones and can use them if needed.


Joining A Stroll thru Life  for the Christmas cloche party.
Also joining these other parties:
I'm having a $80 CSN giveaway. You can link HERE to get the details. Don't miss it!

 Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. Kim, the kitchen is beautiful. The seed company boxes I drool for everytime you take a picture of them. You posted about them ~ I remember going to check, no longer available. I guess they were the only ones? The company name (let's say) is VERY special.

  8. Kim, you have such an art for display! I thoroughly enjoyed every photo. I see you have a Santa (and even a reindeer, in jail too...) That's what I've deemed mine in the big bird cage, you know!

  13. So pretty Kim! The paint colors of your kitchen make your holiday decor all the more beautiful. You have so many pretty cloches but I absolutely adore the one with Santa helping the little one add the star on the tree. It is just too precious. Love your pretty tea towels, rugs and jars with stockings too!

  43. Your kitchen is fabulous. I love decorating my kitchen too as it is the place we spend the most time in and mine was the dumping ground too as we were decorating. It keeps getting dumped on (poor kitchen) as that is where we are doing all of the projects like the chocolate dipping with all of the kids and grandkids wanting in on the action. I posted that one today but it was worth it with the pictures I got of the little guy.

    Everything is just lovely. I love your tree too. You can see ours as you walk in the front door too. Absolutely breathtaking and I bet it is even more so in person.
