Christmas in the kitchen

I have only shown you my dinette area and some snippets of the kitchen.  Again keeping it all simple this year. I tend to over do it sometimes, and then I get sick of the clutter I feel we have.  So far so good this year, I am loving it!
I found this wooden snowman last year at Marshalls, thought it was perfect for behind the stove area. I added a string of beads, and added a few snowflakes to the string.

This cider canister we found in October at an antique store. It is not that old, but we loved it! And for $12.00 how could you go wrong?

These books displayed I bought at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago, for a buck a piece.

The pretty trees behind the sink I bought at the WOW store. It is a local decor store, rememeber the one I did the commercials for.  The tree's where on clearance for $7.00 each, plus I received 20% off. You may notice that is a wine bottle with soap in it. The bottle has a rooster on it, and I thought it would make for a good soap dispenser.

Simple lime green balls, a few glitz and some glam of beads

I was going to add some live greenery to the top of the cabinets. As you see I really do not decorate on top.  To me it is way too cluttered to have decor up there.  At one time in my life, I would have them jammed packed with all my tea cups and pot collections. I have two sets up there now, and I do change those out per season.  I can't handle dusting all the time up there. Not to mention, it is not that easy up and down on a ladder. Safety is no accident is my MOTTO!

I love your snow man over your stove!
I was just in the Dollar Store yesterday and there we're small versions of this painted on disc of wood (logs slices,he-he-he) so cute, for $1.00. I didn't buy any, but thought to myself-- I could make some of those! It never occured to make a large one--on the favorite bead board, no less! Love your kitchen.

Your holiday kitchen is adorable, just like you! I'm supposed to be getting ready for church but instead, here I am, on your blog :) No wonder I'm always running late.

Geeze, I'm going to have to join a recovery group soon. Walk away from the awesome blog, just walk away....

Debbie, I love your kitchen. It looks very familiar. One of my Daughters has your island light over her sink. I have the same tile design on my backsplash and the same configuration as your stove over my sink. I knew we were kindred spirits.
Love the simple Christmas decor. it leaves more room and eating. I have always loved your breakfast area. It looks happy. Merry Christmas, Ginger

Everything looks great Debbie! I love your idea of putting the soap in a wine bottle, what did you use for the top part?

I laughed at your comment to me about playing in Picnik, now that I have my new computer it's so fast!!! I even turned my husband into Santa Claus in there:)

That wooden snowman is a killer piece! It looks awesome!!

The books for 1 buck each?? I am intrigued. My sister threw out all my fairy tale books from childhood. I am still pissed about that. You've given me hope of finding replacements for myself now!! That alone make my day happier! Yayy! ((hug))

Your kitchen looks wonderful! I love your snowman picture and your beautiful red drink dispenser. That is really nice! You are correct my friend I totally love Christmas! I love how you can look around dozens of homes and every ones decor is so different but all sooo appropiate for the season! It's all fantastic to me! I just love that once a year so many people from all walks of life do something to "decorate" for Christmas! I get such a kick out of it all. I love to ride around in the car looking at all the house decorated differently and I am the crazy one that actually even loved the strange leg lamp in "The Christmas Story" too. LOL! :))

It's looking pretty Christmas-y to me, Debbie. I think that snowman face is pretty cute..he looks like he was made out of beadboard.

I thought at first that we had the same granite countertops but yours has a bit more movement in it than mine does...same color though. I love the corner sink..I had one at one of my houses too and loved it.

I like what you've done-it is simple and pretty. Hugs-Diana

Hi Debbie! I love all your creativity with your kitchen decorating. What an awesome canister that is! Love the lime ornaments under glass. It's all just perfect! Last year I did the greens above my cupboards with lights, but not this year.

Hi Debbie~ your kitchen is looking quite Christmasy and beautiful~ I love your trees behind your sink and the soap dispenser is too cute! I might have to make one of those for my dad for Christmas~ he LOVES wine. Did you have to buy a special soap pump to fit the wine bottle or anything to make that work?
