So on to the kitchen...yes indeedy! Since you spend so much time in the kitchen, it really is an important place to have a bit of the Christmas cheer, don't you think? I do!
Doesn't EVERYONE have a Santa coffee pot? I love this one and cannot even remember where or when it came into my possession... but there it is.
Ah yes...and the kitchen sink of course...
Oops! That little pitcher was not supposed to be in there. I was watering the Poinsettia's.
I sort of like to get the broad view of things now and then instead of constant close-ups of things. You get a better feel for the home you are visiting. It's nice to see up close...but...still...
You think I need to hang more dishtowels? :)
And this is my beloved island. The kitchen is really a pretty good size, but I must have my island. I hate that running back and forth..and in old homes they didn't have them. However...one day I would like to find an old rustic one. I am always on the look out.
The entire island holds baking things such as large bowls and other baking things.
Oh..and it holds a VERY large Tupperware container of flour. I believe it holds ten pounds.
Probably the only Tupperware I have left..except for those LARGE mixing bowls.
And THIS sweet bloggy friends, is my GINGERBREAD TREE!!
I realize my Christmas decor is a bit overwhelming to some, but remember I have been saving my Christmas things forever and they have memories that I love and make me feel at home. My Christmas things date back to 1955 and I treasure them. Some I made because we were so broke and my children love those the most.
By the way...that red toaster? I don't trust it one bit. Sometimes my toast ends up clear up on the bar or over in the sink and even on the floor. I am not at all certain WHY it started misbehaving..but I try to have patience as it is getting old like me...and my age is showing too. We sort of understand one another..but..I admit I get a wee impatient when the toast lands on the floor for pity sakes!!
My love to all of you...and I hope those of you that are having trouble sort of getting into the spirit..well..I hope it helps a bit. Many hugs..
