Painters and carpenters have been in my house “finishing up” for weeks now. I started putting things on the mantel and then had to take them down to paint the mantel. I wanted to put garland on the stairs, but there were too many places that needed touch up paint on the stairs. You get the picture. Let’s just say that this year was a bit of a wash as far as holiday decorating goes around my place! But that’s ok. Next year we will be a bit more settled and hopefully have a table or two! The one spot I was able to spruce up a bit was a corner of my kitchen.
A little Christmas decor in my bay window was enough to help us get in the mood for the season. I love having a bay window in the kitchen. I’ve always wanted one. My window guy tried to talk me out of it because he said it would be such a pain to clean. What!? It’s so not a big deal to climb on the counter get on a chair and wipe it off once a week. Glad I didn’t cave!
Poinsettias in a pitcher and candy canes in the other corner. Our candy canes are quickly depleting. I’m clearly not the only one who is climbing on the counter.
So while we weren’t able to do much for holiday decorating this year, we at least have a touch of Christmas in the kitchen.
