Christmas Kitchen 2014


Let's go into the kitchen. I had fun pulling out my Christmas dishes and adding them in the open shelving this year since the cabinet doors were still on last year.

Lots of traditional red and green dishes collected over the past few years.

All these stay stored away in my dish closet.

I placed my vintage looking figurines on a silver tray and a blanket of snow.

Fruit that was gifted to us sits in this vintage bowl on the chopping block.

These hang here all year.

I added a wreath with a red plaid bow to the vintage bread board.

More fruit placed on my vintage scale from France.

Oh, and Miss Bessie got all dressed up, too. I draped faux mailbox greenery over her and added a big red bell tied up with red twine. I was looking for a real cow bell for her and came across this big red bell for only two dollars at the flea market.

Oh, my gosh less than one week away from Christmas!
I have a few more gifts to wrap and one more to buy. Are you ready?

Have a super weekend!

    Now I see why it takes you so long to decorate for Christmas! I cannot imagine changing out kitchen cabinets, etc. You must have a ton of stuff to put up after the holidays. Bessie is looking good!
