Santa fills my kitchen




When I first started decorating my kitchen the colors I had in there were perfect for my red, white, Santa theme I had going on. I really hadn't planned on a theme however you all know how something starts and just builds. When I recently changed my kitchen to the tuscany colors I love so much I thought I should change my holiday kitchen decor to match. BUT I just couldn't. My wonderful daughter bought me these plates a few years back when we shared a a business together and I treasure them so much so, I now have a tuscany, red, white, Santa theme going on. Take a look, it isn't so bad.


The plates are from my daughter. The pictures that you really can't see well are three of my 7 grannies and the shiny Santa at the top was a gift from my talented and wonderful cousin Brenda.

Maybe it is because I am a Swede but I love the Scandinavian felted ornaments, they adorn every available spot on my tree. The cross stich was made by my good friend Kay Buecker, she is very talented and I have several of  her pieces and love each and every one.


A closer look at that cross stitch. Isn't it grand?





Aagh there is that great Santa purchase I made a couple weeks ago. Still haven't got Jeff to help me hang it but I will.........

I love the look at night. I can sit in the dark except for the Christmas lights and just inhale Christmas.



Oops, didn't finish my decorating before this was taken but I like to turn the flash off and just use over head light.



One of my lamps got kicked out of the living room due to lack of space and I hated to just stick it in the cupboard so I put it on the counter. I think that it will stay there even after the Christmas decorations are put away.



Just a closer look at the ornaments on the kitchen tree.




Oh there is another Scandinavian ornament.........and HO HO HO to all of  you!

Oh Debbie, it is beautiful! I've got the red and white theme going this year too and just love it! I love the plates your daugther got you~♥

Your photos on your header is amazing! I love the snow so much. It's rare for us to get it here in Seattle so I really enjoy the pictures you have on here of your snow.

Take Care,

You have a beautiful home, Deb. How right you are when you say you can sit and enjoy the lights and just breathe Christmas. I feel the same way. It is my favorite time of year.

The Ft Rob dinner was fantastic -- I know you work really hard to pull that off -- thanks for everything you did! It was awesome!

Yes we do have a few Scandinavian felted ornaments, here but I would not hang them in the tree to somewhere els in the house.

So your family is from Sweden, what part and for how long time ago? MB
