Home for the Holidays Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of our home    it's where everyone gathers during the holidays.    It's normally the first room that I decorate for each holiday and this year is no exception.      

The kitchen is pretty large so I decorate it in sections.      I've shared one section earlier and I will give you a link at the end of this post if you haven't seen that part of the kitchen yet.    

I have been picking up ugly ceramic houses at yard sales to use in my kitchen Christmas theme this year......Home for the Holidays.

This is the second house that I gave a makeover......


And lastly,  the third house that I gave a Christmas makeover.

I got in a hurry and didn't take a before photo of my church,   but the lady I bought it from actually had two of them and I took both of them.

I showcased each one of my houses by placing them on a milk glass cake plates.    

I added some pink touches to the existing ceramic Christmas tree.

One of the Santa heads that I found at a yard sale over the summer.     

I will decorate the other kitchen counters in a similar look.      If you follow my posts,   you know I have quite a few more houses to give a!

I found some plaid Christmas fabric at Hobby Lobby the other day and am "living with it" a few days to see if I want to make a table runner out of part of  the fabric.

Here is a peek at the other area of the kitchen that I have decorated for Christmas and a link to that post if you want to see more......

H is healing nicely from his surgery last week.....will get the stitches out next Wed.,   This week and next week he will have PT.    I'm still playing nurse and "gopher"!
