Merry Kitchen



(Thank you to Lavender Garden Cottage and Charm of Home for featuring this post!)
Hi, everyone!  Although I have an extremely tiny kitchen, I still want it to be BIG on holiday cheer!  (You gotta work with what you have-ha! )
So this year I've used lots of punches of red to brighten things up in this cozy space.

I hope that you enjoy the tour!





























































(These skates are extra-special because they were my dad's when he was young!)

Well, I hope that you found my tiny kitchen festive!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day :)

  26. My kitchen has kind of the same feel as yours and I have been inspired by these pics! Love the old can with the candy canes! The pine cone and greenery and berries in the wire basket is something I want to do too. Love those skates. I remember my dad's ice skated hanging in our old barn. No idea what ever happened to them. Hadn't though about those in...decades? Thanks :)

  28. Love all the details around the kitchen. I kept expecting a "3" to show itself.. I guess you were subtle : 25 (5-2=3) 249 (9-4=5, 5-2=3) ! That tin box is my favorite! Plus the red truck.
