My Christmas Kitchen - 2 WEEKS LATE!

O.K. I know, I know - Christmas was 2 weeks ago - I'm sorry.  Life got crazy busy - you know how it is.  BUT, I saw my friend Millie yesterday and she fussed at me (not really) because I didn't post pictures like I said I would.  So this is for you Millie!
 
All the Christmas has been put away now and I'm working on spring projects - but I did enjoy my Christmas kitchen this year and all the people I got to share it with, so here it goes....
 
I put our family ornaments on the tree in the kitchen this year...
 
 
I just added a few pops of red here and there...
 
 
My Christmas hutch...
 
 
My little Christmas houses my mom gave me.  Scattered about you'll see a few tags hung on things.  These were just tidbits of information about my decorations so that when the people came through for Open House - they would understand the importance of those decorations.
 
 
A simple wreath...
 
 
One corner cabinet - sorry it's dark - I'm learning how to take better pictures! 
 
 
Another corner cabinet with all the pitchers that I love...
 
 
In front of the window - a little tree with handmade dough ornaments.  I nestled the trunk of this tree in an old flour sack that I had.
 
 
Simple packages, nuts and candy canes finish it off.  
 
 
 
My lil' carolers under glass...
 
 
The mantle in the kitchen with my carolers my grandmother made for me. 
 
 
The barn doors got a simple snowflake...
 
 
And that's it...
 
Now all the Christmas is down and it feels clean and simple again.  
 
Thanks for tolerating my procrastination with posting! 
 
Happy brrrrr.... Winter!

You have a beautiful home and the kitchen is to 'die' for. Thank you so much for sharing, now I am jealous! lol We do have something in common tho, because I also collect pitchers. Will take a picture and include in a blog soon. I know you are glad to have it all put away for another year. Again, everything looked wonderful.

Cathy- I love your sweet decorations. How wonderful to have houses that your Mom made and carolers your grandmother made. That sort of thing is what Christmas is all about to me- xo Diana

Cathy - I'm pretty sure I've said it several times before but I have to say it again. I LOVE your kitchen. I mean I really and truly love it. I'm so happy that I found your blog all those months ago because I was able to use it in some of my kitchen design as we were finishing our house. (I recently did a final post on my kitchen.) Anyway, I am just in awe of your decorating ability and sure wish you could come and help me out on the rest of my house!!! :-) Thanks for this great post! ~ Dori ~

I really enjoyed the tour of your Christmas Kitchen, especially now that my Christmas has been packed away. Your red and white is so fresh and bright. I especially love that you have carolers that your grandma made. Happy New Year

Merry Christmas/Happy New Year! Your blog is like a warm hug! It's just all so pretty, and I love every detail! Love the flour sack and painting on top of your hutch! The painting is just perfect. I could never find something like that! Love the putz houses and the fact that your grandma made the carolers…so sweet! Your new curtains are gorgeous (the brown/cream ones), too!
