Farmhouse Style Christmas Touches

Hello everyone!
 
Can you believe it is already the weekend?  We've got a very busy weekend ahead.  My oldest son's birthday is tomorrow.  He will be 19!  So, we are going out to celebrate tomorrow night.  Then, on Sunday, we're celebrating Christmas with my husbands extended family.
 
I wanted to share a few added touches to my kitchen that I was waiting on.  I wanted to add some farmhouse style Christmas touches in the kitchen.  For me, that means cozy touches like red and white grain sack and greenery (just to name a few).  Also, the smell of something wonderful cooking in the kitchen. 
 
I received these adorable grain sack mini-stockings from Ann at Sutton Place Designs.  I just love them!  I hung them on my vintage style bottle rack in the kitchen.
 
 
I can't tell you how much I love them!
 

I love the quality of workmanship that went into them.  Ann cuts these from real vintage grain sacks too.
 
 
She was sweet enough to include this cute metal angel ornament too.  I hung it around the glass vase filled with birch branches.
 

It's those little extras that Ann does so well!
 
I also received these grain sack sachets she made too. They are filled with fresh lavender. 
 

 

They found a spot tucked into a white gravy boat. 
 
I added another small Christmas tree by the sink too.
 
 
 
 
 
I'm loving adding little trees here and there for a touch of country Christmas.
 
I established a baking center as well.  After all, I need these things for easy access soon!
 
 
I will be making a strawberry pretzel salad to take with us to the gathering on Sunday.  It is wonderful!  It's a Paula Deen recipe.  I'll try to share it in an upcoming post!
 
Hope y'all are having a great start to your weekend so far.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
~ Kelly ~

love those touches. I have an order from Ann coming, also. Can't wait....love her work, and I find it very reasonably priced. Yesterday I found a pretty red ticking type of ribbon in my stash and it made me think of you and your kitchen =) Have a wonderful weekend, and that recipe sounds very interesting!
