Christmas Cheer in the Kitchen


My little kitchen tree is done up with candy canes and candy twig garland. I added the red mesh ribbon this year to fill it out a little. It looks so pretty at night!

My Kitchen Anna Lee's on the window sill and my favorite is the old fashioned rolling pin I found on clearance in Home Goods last year for $2.00.


These lenox plates are very special to me. They were given to me by my MIL who is no longer with us.


Added some greenery and ribbon to my light. I'm sure you can tell by now I'm lovin the red gingham ribbon this year!
 And a simple centerpiece to finish things off!            


Thanks so much for stopping by! Your visits make my day!
