Decorating for Christmas - Kitchen Theme

Design - "Reindeer"
Designer - Tantes Zolder
Fabric - 32 count Light Mocha Belfast linen
Fibers - GAST "Maple Syrup" & "Dried Thyme" & WDW "Lancaster Red"
2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 15 December 2014
Completed - 19 December 2014

I'm going to pat myself on the back. I think I did a pretty decent job choosing fabric and colors to match.

Now let's continue on with the Christmas Decorating Tour. 

This is part of my mother's collection of holiday plates and platters.

For someone who rarely cooks (I do bake), I have quite the collection of kitchen ornaments and trees.  Here are two small ones. The one on the right is new this year.

This cupcake one is in the family room... is this one with cookie cutters and cookie sheets.

I've festooned most of the knobs in the kitchen with cookies ornaments.

Dearest Beth,
I take great joy in following your blog daily...I am, again, in awe of the wonderful manner in which you have "dressed" your home for the holidays. I have one practical question...How do you pack and store all of these treasures?
Wishing you and yours the blessings of Christmas; continued happiness, love, health, and peace in 2015.
Busy Hands...Happy Heart
