Day 3, My Kitchen

This year, I didn't do a whole lot of Santa or snowman stuff(though I do have some, just not all of it), I stuck mostly with greenery, berries, and lights. So on Day 3, I share with you my kitchen...

I repainted the corner cupboard a taupy color and got rid of the white. I like it better, but I'm still not sure I'm sold on the color yet.

Remember the tin bread box I got for $10? I turned it on it's back and stuffed it with gingerbread. And that is the new little tree from goodwill sitting on top of it.
Here is the back of the display, which can be seen from the dining table, so I thought I would turn the tree skirt around so you could see it from that side.
This is the desk area of the kitchen(which is never used for that purpose).
I emptied the black wood breadbox and stuffed it with my rolling pins and greenery.
The view of the table from the front entry doorway.
Simple tablescape...

I picked up this wool felt crow in the stocking at Salvation Army this past summer for a whopping 49 cents!!! I love it and would love to make some of them. Oh, and all my berry wreaths throughout the house were bought last January at The Christmas Tree shop for 90% off, I think they cost me between 99cents and $1.49. The red fabric with ice skates is actually a skirt from LL Bean that no longer fits my daughters.
I bought this cabbage slicer with candle holder this summer by my parents in Ohio and it looks cute on the wall next to my hutch. I just added the wreath that I just got at GW to give it a seasonal touch.
And last but not least, I got this neat light from Birgit's Open house last month. It is a painted coffee can with a flag fabric modge podged over it, then sitting in it is a tin candle holder and the star light. It came with the berry wreath, I just added a greenery wreath beneath it.
I'm off to a church sale tomorrow morning, then cleaning the garage so hubby can get his car back in the garage before the snow flies, and hopefully I can get some crafting in.

Have a wonderful night,
