It's no secret to anyone that reads my blog that I love Christmas and would be happy to leave my decor up all year long. But then how could I look forward to putting it up if I left it out all the time.....lol!
I only purchased a few new things to decorate with this season, and I tried to purchase decorating items that I could use year round.
This chicken wire truck was one of the items I purchased this year......but I plan to use it all year long.
I filled my truck with trees at Christmas, Now, I have it filled with a couple of rose pots and a pine cone / greenery pot adding a touch of winter to the mix.
After I had packed away all the Christmas decor that was on this section of the kitchen counter, I scrubbed it down good.
I bought this 5 foot long chicken feeder when I went to Petticoats on the Prairie in mid October. It's been the centerpiece on the farmhouse table that's on the front porch....til now!
I decided to repurpose it as a tea cup holder.
See how the tea cups hang perfectly on it!
The only thing I kept from the Christmas kitchen counter was the Farm Charm sign that hangs on the back splash.
I hung one of my cuckoo clock birdhouses on the open shelving and used it as a wreath hanger.......
A touch of winter greenery in my rooster vignette.
And here's the vignette next to the sink.
What was H doing while I "played" on the kitchen counter? Making a chicken pot pie. of course! When he put it in the oven to cook, I cleaned off the island and put my truck on it and started taking pictures.
He actually made two chicken pot pies.....he gave our daughter one when she came by.
I've started my winter decorating on the other kitchen counters, so I'll be back soon to share the progress.
