Christmas decorating has begun around our home.
Gone are the days when I could get it done in one day.
Christmas Decorating Day was always a big deal
when the kids were younger.
They got a day off school
and Grandma came over and
everyone had their own special jobs to do.
Of course, there were also special treats too!
Now that the kids are no longer kids, but adults
it takes me a little longer than one day!
However, I do wait to decorate the family tree
until my daughter comes home and we do it together.
So, I started in the kitchen this year.
My kitchen window ledge always gets some seasonal décor!
An uncle-in-law made this beautiful cut glass candle holder
especially for me when he heard how I loved the one
he had made for his daughter.
One of my favorite little bears next to Frosty
puts a smile on my face!
While doing dishes the window ledge vignette
gives a warm and cozy feeling
even while looking out on a snowy landscape.
The other feature spot in my kitchen is the fridge top.
You see it from so many angles in our home.
This year I put up the x-stitched cardinal I did last year.
Along with this musical cardinal hubby found for me at a garage sale.
I have to admit that I love cardinals
and if something has a cardinal on it
I have a hard time passing it by.
Do you add Christmas touches to your kitchen?
