More kitchen Christmas adornment...........

This big santa tray has a place of honor in the high chair each year.  The high chair once belonged to Anita Bryant, the singer. Anyone old enough to remember her? Her friend lived down the street from me at my last house and she put the chair in a garage sale.  I will try to remember to show you its details sometime.

I just left what stays on top of the refrigerator and added this berry wreath. The wooden butter mold was my mothers. I remember her making butter and shaping it in this. It was a perfect pound with the two flower shapes on the top.

My rug was a gift from a good friend one Christmas.

This trio of snow people are sitting on the stove top.

Another nice "Gifts From the Kitchen" Christmas brunch (explained in another post) container. It is hanging on the end of an upper cabinet. I added the keys.

On the door to the garage is my Christmas apron.

Both the wooden basket and snowman cookie jar were brunch containers - from two different years.

I love the bubble/glitter lights.

If you have been following you have seen these before.  They are so much a part of the kitchen here in the window over the sink that I had to include them in this post.

This towel is one of two sent from London by my son-in-law's mother. Please don't anyone tell her I opened the present and have been using it on my stove door before Christmas.

Those three on the upper deck could be my daughter, her husband and me!  I sure did enjoy riding the red buses in London.

I think I forgot to show a close-up of this chair in last nights post, although it was visible in an across- the-room picture. The moose with his big antlers with assorted decorations, including a bird and nest,  has been one of my favorites!  I have also been fond of the wooden angels. A small chair makes a great wall shelf.

I will end with another glitter light. And, say I hope that Jesus, the very reason we celebrate in this season, is The light of your life.  It is a dark place without him.

Then be you glad good people,
This night of all the year.
And light you up your candles,
For His star it shineth clear.
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him, Christ, the Lord!


  1. Great post. I'm swooning over your butter mold.

    Tonight we lit the Yule Log in the fire - bringing light to this, shortest day of the year.

  2. Your home looks so warm and the little chair! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
