This year the kitchen looks pretty much like it did last year, but come on in and have a little tour of the house with me if you like before I start packing to head up north.
My old Santa dummy board gets moved around a lot during the Christmas season. The garland got a little more attention than usual this year with the addition of clusters of ornaments. The Mark Roberts fairies are still climbing all over the place though. The colored lights and fairies give it the childlike look that we go for around here.
This year John and I have decided that our present to each other will be new floor covering. This nasty beige wall-to-wall carpet has to go.
Santa and the Nutcracker's keep an eye on the action from the top of the entertainment center. I am looking for a little faux Chippendale chair to replace the children's lawn chair that he is sitting in this year.
In the powder room I added some antique ornaments and sparkly red snow flakes to the silver tray that holds items like Lady Primrose hand cream for the guests.
I am loving these Mariposa guest towel holders this year. They are a good alternative to the wadded up dirty hand towel that tends to look pretty ratty when you get a house full of people.
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Now I need to get upstairs and pack for the trip north so I better get going. Don't work too hard ladies.
