Cozy Christmas Kitchen

Our kitchen is cozy this time of year.  I'm not much of a chef (I'll admit), but like to bake.  Especially at Christmas.  The scent of Christmas surrounds this little room, where I've added greenery and touches of red. 





Over at the window, the hanging basket gets greenery and silver ornaments:

Vintage postcards are displayed underneath:


On the table - this little green tree was a gift from a work colleague 20 years ago.  I've always thought it was sweet - his Mom made it.  :)

I made a few red ticking lavender sachet ornaments as gifts, and kept this cheerful Santa:

The area surrounding the sink was inspired by the November issue of Romantic Homes magazine.  I adored the kitchen in Marie Johansson-Karlsson's home, and took my cues from it, gingerbread house and all:



I enlisted my dear husband to draw this festive horn on our chalkboard, heralding the good news:

Hi Susan,

Oh my goodness, your kitchen is just gorgeous and beautifully decorated for the season! Everything about it is just lovely! :) You make such wonderful pillows - I can't wait to receive the package that you sent last week from winning your generous giveaway! One day I'll have to learn how to properly sew so I can make those lovely lavender sachets that I see in your home! Just beautiful! Hugs & Happy Holidays to you!!!


Cheers,
Jessie

I don't think I have ever seen your kitchen, Susan! I love it! It looks so warm and cozy and I can almost smell the dough and cinnamon! It's even prettier with your touches of red and greenery! Beautiful!

What beautiful space to spend time while your making holiday treats. I really like the vintage postcards hanging in the window. Such a great way to display them. Oh, and I love, love, love all the enamelware you have scattered around. I'm crazy for the stuff myself.
