CHRISTMAS IN THE KITCHEN 2014

I always enjoy decorating the kitchen for Christmas.
Just like our dining nook that I posted about recently,
I tried to decorate with things that have a winter or Christmas
feel rather than things that are specifically Christmas.
 The little angel above might be the exception.
I just love her, so she had to be included.
When I found this tray with the Currier & Ives winter scene on Ebay,
I thought it would be really nice for Christmas.
 Adding some greenery and red ribbon is an easy
way to create the holiday feeling too.
 I cut some branches from our boxwoods and
stuck them in a jar of water ~ it doesn't get easier than that!
This wreath has been hanging above our cooktop for
awhile so I just added a simple green bow.
And I added some Christmas towels to my utensil basket. 
My baking corner has been used a lot this season.
The cookies are a gift for Grandpa ~ his favorite chocolate chip.
Another favorite ~ this little sheep I found last year.
Isn't he cute?
I'm so glad you came by to visit my Christmas kitchen.
I truly appreciate all of your visits throughout the year.

Have A Wonderful Weekend!

  3. Your kitchen looks wonderful. I love the way you added touches here and there. I kept everything quite simple in my Christmas decorating this year and I think I love my kitchen the best - not much but just enough. I'll be back to visit again. I love coming to see what you have to share. So glad I found you!

  4. I love your kitchen. I can't find any fresh greenery anywhere. I know it's lb but I should be able to find some somewhere. Guess I waited to long. There's valentine's stuff in the stores already. Sheesh. Let us enjoy one holiday at a time.

  5. I love everything, JoAnne...you have a sweet and simple touch that looks festive yet calm. The Currier and Ives platter is beautiful. I love sheep and that's a cutie. I wish I could get this effect. I have the same small touches but I also have a very cluttered kitchen...it really is our "Command Center", and I just can't seem to get it in order, especially with my holiday stuff still all over. Sigh...

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  7. I love the simple touches that you added, not overwhelming, but just the right amount to yield a smile.
    Have a happy holiday.

  8. I love that tray with the winter scene on it. Your Christmas decorations are elegant and I think the idea that they are more winter-like is perfect!
