Christmas Kitchen

Hi Everyone,
It has taken me  f-o-r-e-v-e-r  to get my Christmas  decorating act together. Thanksgiving at my house, then my daughter's 10th birthday  party put me a little behind. Not to mention band concerts, basketball games, shopping and  all the other things that go on this time of year. You all know what I'm talking about, right? 
I have mostly pictures from my kitchen today and I will also share my favorite holiday decoration.

 A little "button art" on the wall by the fridge.
In the picture below you can catch a peek of my favorite decoration this year ~ do you see it?
I love, love, love this window frame. A bought it a couple months ago and have been saving it for Christmas.   I spent a lot of time (too much time) playing around  with accessorizing it.  I'm loving how these vintage looking ornaments look with the frame.

That's it for today.   I hope to be back with more this week and I hope you are all having a joyful Christmas

A Favorite Thing

A couple days ago I saw that Nesting Place is having a  Favorite Things linky party.   It should be something small and simple that costs less than $30.00. Nothing really jumped to mind at the time but when I was making my daughter's birthday cake, I thought of something. It's this white silicone spatula from Crate&Barrel. I have had it for probably 2 years and I use it ALL THE TIME. I love that it's one piece and has a long handle. It's just so handy and easy to wash. It costs $3.95 and here is the link at Crate&Barrel in case you're just dying to immediately  order one! : )
(In case you're wondering, Crate&Barrel is not paying me to say this but if they want to, that would be ok with me! : ) 
So that's it for my favorite thing.   If you have a favorite thing, come on over and join the party at Nesting Place!
