Red & White Kitchen Christmas Touches

                                                             As Christmas Day is almost here it has been
                                                             busy with Christmas concerts,family get
                                                             togethers and even a couple of birthday
                                                             parties so I have been slow posting lately.
                                                             However, I am sure you have been busy as well.

                                             So, I have a few Christmas touches in the
                                             kitchen today.
                                                             Love my red and white transferware soup tureen and
                                                             the vintage bowl as well.
                                                              Amaryllis and Christmas just seem to
                                                              go together.

                                                                A new addition to the kitchen last week
                                                                was this little cabinet that holds some of my
                                                                transferware dishes.

                                                                        Little details
                                                                   My toile santa keeps getting moved around.

                                                                 A peek through the french doors.
                                                              This tree gets a spray of artificial snow every year
                                                               to give it the look I love.

                                          We have a scant dusting of snow on the ground right
                                                     now but rain is in the forecast for Christmas this year~
                                                     so it looks like a green Christmas for us.I might have to
                                                     but a few more cans of that artificial snow and cover my windows!

                                                               Hope your Christmas preparations are going well!

Love your new little cabinet- what a great find - perfect to "feature" like items, such as your gorgeous red transferware collection!

I esp love your toile Santa, how unique and handsome he is!

I have been insanely busy - several birthdays too on top of all else - so haven't had much blogging time, hope to make up reading in the next few days. I posted last night, hope to do lots more.

So glad you have some snow - not looking good for us with a white Christmas this year. : - (

Carolyn, your kitchen is so pretty with the red and white theme. The tree is gorgeous and I love your new cabinet! Yes, we'll be getting a lot of rain here for Christmas too and our pretty snow will melt into a real mess of slush with the very mild temperatures we're to get. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Blessings. Pam

It looks like a green Christmas for both of our provinces this year. The red transferware is perfect for the holidays and the flocked tree is pretty decked out in white.
Merry Christmas.

It all looks so pretty, Carolyn! Love the transferware pieces and I always say it, but I love that toile dressed Santa. : ) What a great idea to spray your tree with the snow spray. It looks great, too. I'm hoping to get a flocked tree on clearance for next year.

Merry Christmas Carolyn! Love your red and white touches! Your toile Santa is adorable. I never thought of spraying snow on my tree; good idea! Wishing you and your loved ones a lovely holiday and may the New Year hold many blessings for you.
