Post Christmas cleaning, I think we all do it.
I was at 1515 last weekend and everything Christmas is put away
and everything in its place again.
I love kitchens decorated for Christmas, after all other than the room
where the Christmas tree is, it is the centerpiece of the holidays.
A place we gather to bake, cook, share a cup of cocoa and a secret about
fresh linens on the kitchen table. This beautiful tablecloth I won
this summer from Carol at Old Glory Cottage.
my Grandma's aprons all washed, iron and starched and hung back up
love the details
Pyrex all out and ready for the next dinner
the runner also was from Carol
doesn't that little pitcher match my Pyrex?
a gift from cousin Mary
looks similar to fiesta ware but is Hall
Oh how I love my Grandmother's kitchen at 1515. Sometimes I just sit there in the
quiet of the day after everyone has gone home.......just thinking of all the activities this
kitchen has seen for our family since 1926. I can still see them....my parents, aunts, uncles. cousins and grandparents in this kitchen in my mind.
It was the hub for many things.
My Great Grandparents 50th wedding anniversary in 1936
My Aunt Mary's wedding in 1947
My Grandmother's death in 1957
My Grandfather's birthday in 1978
and now all the gatherings we have
Sunday is a day for me to sit and think about the love
of my family, I hope you can sit around the kitchen
table with yours today.
