Kitchen Christmas

Man- I am BEAT !! Between all the home festivities for Christmas, my youngest son's b-day party preparations and  and the holiday concert I am in charge of at the school -- I am plumb tuckered-out!!

I am SO looking forward to a lovely cuppa Christmas tea following the completion of this short little Kitchen Christmas post....

I have a small little kitchen, attached directly onto the family room. I don't do a lot of decor in here, but I really enjoy putting together a little vignette each season on these display shelves.  

On the table- a poinsettia, a grapevine tree covered in "snow" and a votive jar, striped like a minty candy cane.  Pretty and easy to move at dinner time!!

These plates have always hung here but I decided I wanted a little change for the festive season.  I used my Cricut to cut some red and white background shapes for the "joyous" black lettering. 

Some natural greenery here on this shelf  along with vintage velvet-covered  candles and the cutest cottage salt-and-pepper shakers you have ever seen!!

I have never purchased REAL holly before.  I sprang for one bunch  last weekend and have been spreading it carefully throughout the house.

Love my new Reindeer teapot - my husband's parents know me so well!!
And I finally found a vintage Santa mug.  Can't wait to add to this collection!!

So much to see and enjoy in one little space.  It brings a smile to my face every day - and it never fails to tweak the interest of every visitor we have into our home, too!
