goodbye Christmas kitchen

Since it is so cold this weekend it seemed like a good time to remove my Christmas decorations.  We had celebrated late at the farm--well into January--and I really didn't do a lot of decorating but I took a couple of pictures while it was still up.    The area that serves as a butler's pantry got a little tree with a wine theme.
 The west side of the kitchen had a bit of garland over the stove with red lights, candy canes, rolling pins, copper cookie cutters, mini spatulas, mini wooden spoons and red barn ornaments. 
 The east side of the kitchen had a little tree with red lights, gingerbread boys, rolling pins and candy canes.
The northeast corner is home to my new to me kitchen nutcrackers, found on a thrift store trip and a framed gift bag, a gift from my sister quite a few years ago.

    1. Thanks! The checkerboard look is my favorite. I only have one wall that is red but I think if there was more it might be a bit overwhelming. It is kind of an odd layout but perhaps typical for the age of the house. All of the cabinets are on one wall, hence the chrome shelving and wood shelving unit.

  2. I love your white shelves with all the white dishes and the blue mason jars. So pretty. xoxo Su

    1. Thanks, Su. I first used that space to hold all the jars that are now on the wood shelf unit in the kitchen but my dish collection got bigger and so I swapped things out and I like it too.
