Our Christmas Kitchen,

Come grab a cup of coffee and

Make your coffee, just the way you want.

Grab a cookie from our last Sunday Cookie Bake before I put them away.

or another cookie, 
I have them hidden in plain sight here, now.

or here, this carousel plays music, turns--and is a hidden cookie tin.

I'll just put away the cookie cutter bins, LOL. Yes, it is that bad here.

Phew, now grab a chair and let's take a break.

Around the kitchen, I add Christmas to what I have here everyday.
Everything is vintage at this point.

I've added vintage tins, everywhere.

I decorated the windows with round molds and cake pans.

And streamers of cookie cutters.

On the island, Grandma was in charge of baking all those cookies with 10 elves helping on Sunday.
We managed to get them all done and iced and another 6 dozen or so gingerbread baked before the snow hit.

A couple of adorable furred elves, on the pantry doors.

A vintage Danish Bell hanger is on the new wallpaper. Nisseman or Danish Elves are busy doing their work and play.

I think this is from the early 1970s.

Since I now have a red, white and blue kitchen, even the S&P are decor.

I have an old wool santa next to the tree.

Gingerbread boxes are safe for little hands to handle. Vintage cookie cutters are here and there
in case Grandma cracks the whip and we have to bake some more.

Well, how about another cup of coffee.

Another piece of poundcake?

    1. So appreciate your stopping by. The kitchen is really one month new---but we worked oxo hard to make it look old, thanks and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  4. Everything here is 100 percent adorable! How I long to have a big kitchen like that! But what really knocked my socks off was those cookies. When you said you had a cookie bake, you weren't talking a few batches! These are high-end bakery worthy! And I picked up a great bonus idea by subdividing the cookie cutters. I sort them out every season. DUH!

    It really is beautiful. Merriest. (I am your newest follower!)

    1. Oh nice to meet you Jeanie. The kitchen was just finished right before Thanksgiving. We are still wandering around, trying to remember where everything is---thanks so much for enjoying. Oh, our bakers/decorators were ages 4-69. (the 4 year old, worked for almost 3 hours...and helped cut out too.) So thanks, again, Merry Christmas, Sandi

  6. Oh how fun Sandi! You have so many treasures in your home. I use to have that same round santa tin and ceramic elves. I have given some thing to my kids over the years. You really made a ton of cookies, and what a cutter collection. :) Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann

    1. Yea, Rolly Poly-Santa was too cute to pass up and the elves are sweet. I shouldn't have bought anything, but when they are so thrifty---it's hard to pass up. And, the cutters have gotten out of hand, and many are migrating to the craft room for projects. Grins and thanks for having fun, here with me, Sandi
