Whimsical Christmas Kitchen ...

I like to keep things fun and whimsical in the kitchen each year!  So, feel free to take a peek around:

I've added this tree to our island for the past few years ... I always love adding a bit of the unexpected ... too bad the middle section of lights *just* went out ... bummer!

I dressed the tree in lots of gingerbread ornaments, cookie cutters, Christmas note cards and other whimsical ornaments:

Little elves are scattered about ... this little cutie climbed up on the ladder and helped me decorate the tree:

This little elf is perched on top of a canister filled with snow and ornaments!  The other canisters hold inexpensive candy canes and sweet treats!

And, *this* little Elf is taking a bath in more sweet treats!

I LOVED being able to add Christmas whimsy to the shelves that I made this past Fall!

I'm big on adding things in kitchen canisters OTHER than sugar and flour! Adding inexpensive cookie cutters is a fun way to add Christmas color to any kitchen!

This simple vignette sits on the counter below:

On the other side of the kitchen, I added red trees, garland, oversized snowflakes and a chalkboard to the soffit:

And, down below, I have one of my most favorite pictures ... Jax (when he was 3) taking a walk with Santa.  Still makes me tear up when I pull it out of the box every year.

I hope all of you are enjoying a wonderful holiday season! 

As always, thank you so much for stopping by!
