This is my kitchen at Christmas. The shelves were finished yesterday. I didn’t waste any time filling them.
And I added Christmas decor to the mix. I figure it is probably the only place Ivy can’t access.
New Kitchen Sign:
You can see my new kitchen sign I found at Tuesday Morning. I just had to bring that red beauty home with me.
Yesterday I dug around in my tub searching for small holiday decor. Christmas decor is tucked in here and there on the shelves.
Can you believe I have Christmas decor down to one plastic tub?
When you live in an apartment with no attic or basement, it’s hard to store seasonal decor. You have to justify taking up space for just a month’s time.
Christmas In My Kitchen:
I think having the third 4 foot shelf helps to balance out the wall better. I liked it before. But I like it even better now.
Red & White Rose Dishes:
I found these red and white rose plates that one of you sent me four of years ago. I just love them. They are so feminine and of course red and white!
One of you also sent me two battery operated candles. I’d never had them before. I have one here on the shelf.
At night I use the remote to turn it on and the glow in the kitchen is just beautiful.
Mixing In A Bit Of Vintage Decor:
Red and white is everywhere you look on my kitchen shelves. I tried to space the red and white decor out for a sense of balance.
Adding A Little Farmhouse Flair:
Aren’t the red and white rose plates lovely?
While at Tuesday Morning on Saturday, I also found the two glass canisters with tight suction lids for my sugars. I also picked up the little red dish with the rooster.
They had a set of red and glass kitchen canisters, with red chickens on top of the glass canisters, for $24.99. I was sorely tempted to get them. But I wasn’t sure where I’d put them.
A Red & White Vignette:
I’m so pleased to have my shelves. I don’t know where I’d be able to put breakable decor if I didn’t have them. Ivy hasn’t gotten on the kitchen cabinets yet, thank goodness.
I’ve thought about putting one of my tabletop Christmas trees up in that red beverage stand I’ve used the past few years. But I can’t figure out quite where I’d put it.
The obvious place is at the corner in the living room adjacent to my blue hutch with white dishes. But I’m afraid she might then be tempted to get on the blue hutch to get to it. And I will be heartbroken if my white dishes get broken.
Tucking In A Candle:
Here’s the candle turned on. It isn’t dark enough to show how pretty it is. But you get the idea.
