A Few Christmas Additions in the Kitchen

I added a few more Christmas things in the kitchen yesterday. I don't know when to stop! I bought this styrofoam candy cane and put it on a wreath I had and hung it in the window over the sink. I also added 2 more Dollar Tree red trees on the ledge. I saw the idea for the lights in the Mason jars in a magazine a long time ago and had always wanted to try it. I put them in a yard sale white bowl and added some red and green beads. O.K., maybe I am finished decorating the kitchen...MAYBE. Happy Monday to you!

Angie, I love your decorated kitchen. I have never really decorated for the holidays in my kitchen before, however I am seriously rethinking that now!

Shelia said...

Morning, Angie! Oh, honey, don't stop! I love all you're doing! I can't seem to get busy decorating because I'm spending so much time here on my puter looking at everyone else's pretties!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Lindy said...

I went to my Dollar Tree and bought the last two red trees. Even though I saw them before, I didn't see the potential that you did. Now that they are home, I love them.

I really like the candy cane wreath and the single electric candle with the green light. You are one clever girl!

Country Sweetie said...

Lights in mason jars.. I would've never thought of that super cute idea! I'm so very glad I started to follow your blog.. you have so many great (and frugal) decorating ideas.

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

I want you to know that I keep walking into my small kitchen and staring at that ONE corner I have and asking myself: Now how can I make it look anything close to hers? And that would be you, my dear. Still haven't figured it out!

Amanda said...

I think you ALWAYS have the best ideas. My kitchen window looks out into the garage. Can you believe that? Anyway, The idea of the wreath over the window would be great for me. thanks again for another great idea.

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Cute, cute, CUTE! I love your wreath and the way you put lights in the three canning jars...I tried to put some lights in a large jar but there were WAY too many on the set of 100 to fit! I am still looking for a strand of 50 lights...But yours look so pretty! :) Your kitchen is one of my favorite kitchens ever! :)
