Christmas in the Kitchen

Holiday parties...so much fun...
today we're in the kitchen, that I just finished decorating.
I'm just showing the "big picture" today,
because I have some fun detailed posts coming up.

I DO want to share the details on this great old spatterware bowl.

a couple of months ago I found it at Amy's Etsy Store
It was just what I'd been looking for for Christmas!

My tool caddy with blue Mason jars stays on the table.
It's usually filled with faux hydrangeas,
 and now some winter greenery.

Sitting on a red toile tablerunner from TJ's, purchased several years ago.

On top of the kitchen china cabinet

And on top of the fridge

Baby chandy above the sink

And a milk carrier full of paperwhites...
(more on them a little later)

More fun coming...

I'm linking up with:

I'm about done with the decorating...
I need to relax and enjoy it!

  25. Hello Debra, I love your Christmas decor in your kitchen! I would just about do anything to have a large kitchen like yours!! :)
    I love forcing paperwhites too! That reminds me, I should probably get started on those, shouldn't I?!

  26. bright and lovely...you have a fabulous island! i think it's so great that your home shows how much you truly love decorating, it's such a passion of mine too!

  27. SOOOOOOO beautiful! LOVE the bowl and the use of the tool caddie! Enjoy your day my friend, HUGS!

  28. I agree it all looks so great just like a magazine picture , perfect

  29. I love it all. So festive and delightful. What can you tell us about the cloth under the splatter bowl? I have similar cloth with blue embroidery with cream lace crocheted at the bottom. Not sure what it is for but I love it.

  30. I LOVE the photo with the snowmen and the little tree , and your decoration on top of the fridge-dear Debra, all looks so beautiful- and wintery.

  31. How beautiful! I would love to sit with a cup of tea and just look around your gorgeous kitchen! Well done!

  32. Debra, your kitchen looks great. I love that you showed the bowl because I think it is a great piece. I also loved the story you shared with me about it. Hope it brings forth great memories.


  33. Festive and Beautiful! I love your red and white bowl! Perfect for Christmas! And I could just kick myself! Last weekend, while on our trip, I saw a tin plaid "lunchbox" like yours in one of the shops we stopped in. It piqued my interest, but I couldn't imagine what I would ever do with it. I walked past it several times. I finally passed on it! It looks so pretty with your Christmas decor ...I should have brought it's twin home with me!!! :)

  34. Love it all, Debra. So pretty and inviting. I adore the silver tray and have one on my island also.

  36. I just love all the things you do with that tool box on the table. I have one and used it for a post this week. So fun to fill it with goodies. Your home looks amazing. Great job!

  37. This is wonderful Debra. I love all of the vignettes and vintage goodness! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!

  38. I just love that tiny little chandy! It is just what my kitchen needs! andrea@townandprairie
