Whew! This sure has been a whirlwind of a week, hasn't it? So many parties, so little time. Ha! I guess this just about wraps up my Christmas decor to show you. I didn't do very much in my kitchen since it is such a busy place for us to hang out. Our computer is in here, a TV for watching and video games, the laundry room, the eating area and the cooking area. See? It is truly the hub of our home. So, I had to keep it as functional as possible.
Here are a few vignettes that I've displayed.
I added a wintry message to the chalkboard. I can leave that up all winter long. I just added some Christmas greenery and candy canes to my white dishes. BTW, the cup and little creamer are from Melissa's Heart and Home blog. I won her anniversary giveaway. They're so pretty!
My son and I decorated a gingerbread house together so it is prominently displayed on a pedestal so we can all enjoy it.
I added some red and white sparkle to my breadboard .
As you can see I introduced "red" for the holidays in my kitchen. This room is separate from all the rest, so I can choose whatever color I want and it doesn't conflict with the other rooms. Ha!
I painted "Ho Ho Ho" on a piece of burlap and draped it over the other burlap that was hanging on my oven door.
I did the same thing with the one hanging on the towel bar. I stenciled "25" for the date of Christmas.
I love my new jute rug too. I ordered it from French Larkspur. It has German writing on it. It came packaged so cute with old book pages on top and little butterflies cut out of book pages sprinkled in the package. She has a wonderful blog too if you want to check it out.
My breakfast area is dressed up with a wreath on the window, my dog's stocking hung on the back of a chair and some Christmas greenery stuck in the centerpiece.
Does your dog have a stocking? Mine looks forward to seeing what's in it Christmas morning. It's one of our favorite things.
It is VERY cold and rainy today, so I'm just going to stay in today and keep warm.
