When I look at my kitchen I always think of Christmas. It’s because of all of the red and white I suppose.
I love my kitchen. Kendra helped me make a few improvements last spring. And I haven’t changed much aside from moving things about on the counter or rearranging things in the open cabinets.
And I haven’t even done much of changing up the cabinets. I like things as they are.
I added just a few elements of Christmas decor in here. I’ve had that red tree since I lived in Texas. And I think the snowman as well.
The other day I realized that the little snowman next to him has a ski broken off at the bottom. Oh well. Accidents happen.
Yesterday afternoon I was going through the storage boxes under the bed and found those two red and white polka dotted hens you see at the top. I’d forgotten I had them!
Of course they fit right into the red and white decor.
I did have the basket in their place that is now next to my red picnic basket on top of the refrigerator. I keep snacks in that basket.
Last year I found the little lamb with the bird perching on its back. I believe I found it at the grocery store.
I don’t think I added anything else in terms of Christmas decor in here.
Like I mentioned, all the red and white looks like Christmas to me anyway.
I enjoy having such a fun kitchen. There’s nothing really special or expensive in here. After all, it is an apartment kitchen.
But over the nearly seven years I’ve lived here, I’ve added this and that to make it feel more cozy.
I love my open cabinets. If there’s dust up there I don’t notice. And what I don’t notice I don’t clean.
And it’s so convenient to reach up and grab a plate or glass when I’m fixing a meal.
