My Christmas Kitchen

I love my kitchen. I do. It isn't up to many people's standards, but for me it is the heart of our home and frankly where I spend most of my time. The cabinets, counters and oven (my old oven) are original to the home. Circa 1958. The cabinets are solid maple and as sturdy as ever. Of course I have my dream kitchen in my mind. One that is built in the Salt Box Farmhouse I am sure I am meant to own someday, but for now I am content. That is my motto this year contentment. I am happy for what I have. I think this economy has reminded a lot of us of what is important. So just want to share some pics of my kitchen that is my cozy haven.


 My candy tree.








 I love to collect rolling pins and here are some of my red ones.



 The recipe card is my mom's sugar cookie recipe. She passed away nine years ago so I treasure anything with her beautiful handwriting on it. I decided I'm going to frame it and hang it in my kitchen after I copy the recipe of course.

 Picked up these cute cherry ornaments at the thrift store for a $1 for both. Thought they were so cute.

Blessings from my kitchen. Right now I am in my kitchen folding laundry and blogging. Thanks to all who leave me such nice comments. I can't believe anyone would ever even see my blog never the less comment on it. It is such a wonderful positive thing in my life and I enjoy visiting my favorite blogs daily and finding new ones. I guess you could say I'm addicted. I can think of worse things than homemaking/decorating blogs to be addicted to. I'm linking to Sue Loves Cherries for Rednesday and Savvy Southern Style for her link party. Also linking with My Romantic Home for show and tell Friday. And linking with The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Linking with A House in the Roses for Show Off Your Kitchen Monday and Sew On and So Forth

I like your attitude of being happy with what you have! I think it's the secret to happiness, don't you? Your kitchen looks so cozy and welcoming, and your tree is very sweet! And I love the idea of framing your Mom's recipe card. What a wonderful keepsake to have!
Happy REDnesday!

Your candy tree is so charming! I have got to get my Christmas out! Now!

Now, let me go through my list of what I find charming in your kitchen: green glasses, rolling pins, cherry ornament ($1? Life is not fair!), little red plate behind the gingerbread man, and the best - your mom's sugar cookie recipe! What a warm and welcoming little spot you have there. Thanks for sharing!

I'm so sorry to be visiting so late, but life is just beyond busy these days.

Thanks so much for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

What a cute Christmas kitchen!!! I love all the rolling pins! I have a HUGE oak one that my mom got from the Army surplus store after WWII! It reminds me of what you would see the cartoons running after someone with a rolling pin!

Great job!

Love the idea of framing the recipe with your Mom's handwriting. I have a few recipe cards that were my grandmom's. You've inspired me.
