Christmas Kitchen

One of the first rooms I like to decorate is my kitchen. I don't know why? I think it is the memories of making cookies with my Mother and Grandmother. I also think it is the after dinner leftovers my Mom, Grandmother and I would eat in the kitchen on the big day. It is just a feeling of warmth and love.

So today how about a tour of my kitchen at home at 1515? Let's start at home.............

I had collected Pfalzgraf Christmas Heritage for years. I love the bright red and white.
My beloved hoosier cabinet, a Christmas present from my Mom and Grandfather one year. The aprons shown, the one on the left is mine and the one on the right my Mom has on in every Christmas picture of her!

I probably should take this calendar to 1515, but I have had it for years and love it. It makes me think what a happy Christmas 1946 with the War behind everyone.

Don't you just love the curtains at the kitchen window? My Mom made them for me about 15 yrs ago. I just love the design on them.

Now do you want to see the kitchen at 1515??

The kitchen window here has a bottle brush forest.

The aprons are hanging for the cousins to cook.

My Grandmothers crock and cookie jar ready for use!

Hope you enjoyed the tour. Tell me what does your kitchen mean to you at Christmas??

Ann both your kitchens look so welcoming and inviting for the holidays-mine is just a catch all lately-no baking going on here!

I want your table. I keep seeing them and thinking I need one, but have no room for one. Still pretty cute though!

I love both of your kitchens, Ann. Love that you are hanging your Mom's apron on the hoosier cabinet. :)

I love it all, but I think you need another house to decorate!
You have got to be the ulimate treasure hunter! I remember so much of this and it brings back the warmest memories. Thank you for that.
Been sick a couple of days so I'm trying to get caught up on my blogging!
Hugs and Merry Christmas-Tete
