It's time to finish this up. Today we'll peek in the kitchen & dining area. Most of us tend to spend quite a bit of time in the kitchen (well, sometimes), so I think it's fun to include a bit more whimsy in that area... enter Santa!

I have had this Santa wreath for a long time, and I remember buying him at Lakeland Garden Center. I remember because I paid way more than I could afford at the time. But I loved him... and still do because he is so unique. I guess the message is...  if you love something, find a way, and you'll always treasure it.

My last little Santa hopped up to the cupboard top. I'm enjoying the tin pitcher I found at Blooms 'n Lattes this year. You'll notice that I have used red napkins folded over the baskets & attached a snowflake with red & white checked ribbon. I think the red and white snowflake theme will carry me nicely through Valentines Day and beyond.

For Christmas I switched out my wooden tote for a smaller basket filled with greens, glittery poinsettias and grape clusters. Sitting beneath a lamp they sparkle all day long.

The table is set for a little afternoon coffee party with friends.

A nook in our hutch provides the perfect spot for my vintage-look girls and boys skating and frolicking in the snow.
Geraldine and I want to thank you for coming by and touring our home. We hope your day is wonderful!

Till next time...
