December Break





During Christmas break I go through a few phases,it starts
with a Decorating frenzy, then the cluttery
claustrophobia kicks in...
and then the...
where I am now...
 changing and rearranging
crazy lady. 


Does anyone else get that way? Don't get
me wrong, I love to pull  all our treasures
 out and we all enjoy them.


But there comes a point where I want a little
 less out. So instead of packing all the Christmas
decorations away, I like to remove the 
heavy greenery then I rearrange and
lighten the decorations.

Is Everyone Ready?

I thought I was but as I sit here writing my list for the day I realize
... maybe not.
 So today I will be wrapping, doing some
more baking, some shopping...blah....
and hopefully some relaxing...yah!


As long as our tree is up...



check!


All my Santas are out...
I can work through my list with
satisfaction.


We have collected one Santa a year
for the last 20 something years. :)
2005 I started to date them underneath.
(Sure wish we had dated them from the start.)
They range in price from
$0.99 to $99.


Isn't he cute!  Our newest member.. :)
He was at Winners for
about $14.


So off to work I must go.
Here's hoping that everyone has a
wonderful Christmas, enjoying all that
this season brings!

Merry Christmas,
Abby
:)




Taking Some Time


Hope that you are able to take some time
and enjoy all of the special moments that
 this time of the year can bring.

Have a peaceful evening,
Abby

More of our Christmas Kitchen


Hope you are having fun decorating your home.  I am
 finding decorations that I forgot that I
had....but having fun setting up our house. 



Our kitchen only looks this tidy when I am taking pictures!
Sure wish I could figure out how to keep it tidy all
the time.



I think it has something to do with my  'family'
and my disorganization!  :)









A tea set from my grandma :)
Love it all polished up and shiny.

Christmas in the Kitchen

As you can see my kitchen is extremely
dark.  We have grown to love the dark
wood of the cupboards but I try to add as much light
and sparkle as I can just to lighten the feel of the space.





Haha here's my old yellow kitchen..  ;)



Its a fun kitchen to work in, and even more fun to decorate.



Greenery, bows, balls,  even the tinsel from last year..lol







Even this sweet bird doesn't get spared.

Let it Snow

I think I start to decorate earlier and earlier
each year.  With all the gorgeous blogs out there I love
to linger over, I get so much inspiration!  By the
time the boxes come up from the basement I
am just about bursting with ideas of what I
would like to try.  







This is a terra cotta pot that I repainted
with chalkboard paint, it always get a seasonal message.



The heart on the mirror was in a package of 4 and
they were about $3.00 from V.V.s  !!!  Just a good clean
and a satin ribbon .






And more paper whites. :) ...I don't think that they will last
through Christmas, I might need some ideas to fill
there spots.  :/
