I think the kitchen is pretty much where we spend most of our time during the Holidays or
any day for that matter.
So to bring a little cheer into this room is always a good thing!
Bringing a bit of Christmas cheer that can take me through well into January was my goal.
We all need a little Joy in the kitchen . . .
I am using this ironstone platter that sits on the stove hood as my base for seasonal decor.
For Christmas, I placed three small wreaths on the platter and used the stick on letters.
In keeping with my decorating philosophy this season of just embellishing existing decor,
I did just this with my kitchen tower of vintage bowls.
Embellished the vintage crocks from Mary Alice’s shop with holiday pretties.
More embellished vintage crocks on a bread board atop a vintage scale.
Love using cardinals in my decor as it is the State Bird of North Carolina.
They look so beautiful when frolicking in the snow.
One one side of the kitchen is where I love to decorate and showcase my collections.
Simple trees in ironstone pitchers with a touch of whimsy with the mitten ornaments.
The vintage bread box did not escape being embellished too!
And there is that “Joy” in the kitchen again!
And the vintage French scale got a pair of mittens too!
Just love to stage this space all year round!
Moving over to the opposite side of the kitchen . . .
I placed a little cedar tree in the ironstone tureen that I recently purchased
piece and knew that I would want it….yep, she was right!
Love the morning sun on the dining room walls that casts the pretty light from the crystals
that are hung in the windows.
With my decorating done, I can now move on to baking those cookies and addressing
the Christmas cards . . . shopping? . . . well, that will be on the schedule later.
Hope you are enjoying your week of great Holiday plans!
