A Little Christmas in the Kitchen

Here's a little corner on my kitchen countertop you have seen many times before. It is looking cozy and Christmasy and I love it! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and will have a great weekend recuperating from all the eating and shopping. Be back on Monday!

Little White Pitcher

This little white pitcher hangs on a hook on the cabinet by my kitchen sink. I think I may have talked about this before so sorry if I have. I just love it because it' so easy to change out for each season. I had a sunflower in it for the fall and now you can see it is Christmasy with some greenery, a lollipop pick, an ornament, and some ribbon. Cute pieces like this just make me happy, ya know? Have a marvelous Monday folks!

Cute Trees and Tray from the Dollar Tree

I got these cute little red trees (they come in other colors) and a snowman tray from the Dollar Tree. I don't go in there often, but am always thrilled with what I can get for only a dollar! I am working on my main tree in the living room today. Hope y'all are having a great weekend!!!

A Christmas Arrangement

I am getting my Christmas decorating done a little each day and will hopefully be pretty much finished by Thanksgiving, but I'm not holding my breath. This is what I put on top of the refrigerator. I bought 2 bags of these red glittery sticks at Kirklands (still have a lot left) and really like the height they give to an arrangement. I also have greenery and red balls stuck in the basket and I added a bow around my rooster's neck. Gotta keep my roosters on display and have them decked out too! Enjoy your evening and have a great Thursday!

Lampshade Redo

I found this cute polka dot fabric at Joanns and wanted to use it in my kitchen. So, I hot glued it and some ribbon to a shade I took off a lamp in my bedroom. The shade is now on a lamp on my kitchen table on a tray (made from a picture frame) with some greenery and a snowman. I just love the whimsical polka dots! Have a great Monday everybody!

Another Christmas Plate and a Tray

Here is another little Christmas plate project I did today. I painted a wooden star I had, put a couple of scrapbook stickers and a bow on it, and hot glued it to a plate. I also covered the tray behind the plate with some scrapbook paper. Actually I had put the ribbon and some fabric on the tray a while ago for another project and I just taped this Christmasy looking paper over the fabric. I change things a lot so I don't usually make things that are permanent. Hope you are all having a great day!

Easy Christmas Ornament Plates

I found these felt Christmas ornaments last week at Hobby Lobby and had to have them. I just love the red and lime green together! They came in a package of 12 (6 of each) and were $6.99 and then half off. You know me, I like really quick and easy projects. So, all I did was hot glue them to some white plates I had and hung them in my kitchen. Right now I have a vintage looking tray I got at a yard sale in the middle on the plate rack, but I am not really crazy about it so I may paint it. Yes, it is only Nov. 11th, but I am already decorating for Christmas. I like to start early and just take my time doing a little here and there when I have the chance. I am having fun!!! Hope y'all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Cute and CHEAP Pumpkin Plates

I got these plastic pumpkin plates at Rite Aid last week for only 37 cents each. Their fall stuff is 75% off. I hung them on my plate rack in the kitchen. I think they are pretty cute! Thought I'd let you know in case you have a Rite Aid where you live and want to get some. Have a wonderful day!!!

Another Green Dish!

Look what I found in Ross today! I was so excited when I found this platter for only $7.99. For now I put it on this piece in my kitchen. You know I am always moving things around so I'm sure it will be rotated between the kitchen and dining room. Hope you have a good night!

Green Dishes in Cabinet

I have been wanting to incorporate more green into my decor so I decided to get out all my green dishes and put them around in my kitchen. I hung some plates and put some of the other stuff in my open cabinet. I am always on the lookout for more pieces to get. I have some of the Bordallo pieces, but I don't really care about the name brand. I just want a pretty shade of green. I am also trying to find another wrapping paper or either some wallpaper to redo the backs of the cabinet. I have never really been happy with this Christmas wrapping paper I used because it is so busy. That will be on my list of projects and that list is very long. I'm sure y'all can relate to that. Have a terrific Tuesday!!!
