Christmas Is Starting In The Kitchen

Little by little I started doing a bit of Christmas decorating in the kitchen.  It is always such a fun place to start and I always love a bit of whimsy in my kitchen too.

I had a couple of really small wreaths, perfect for above the range.



A few years ago I found these two fun "ladies" at Goodwill and just couldn't pass them up.  They are so fun with their pretty gingham dresses and aprons.  I imagine them getting ready to bake up something wonderful like a big batch of cookies or maybe a fabulous pie.


I love my little Santa Chef too, he is such a fun guy.  He needs to start cooking too.



My little pixie Elf plopped himself down by the tree.  He is such a really mischievous little guy.  I need to keep an eye on him.


I'm working on a breakfast room tablescape.  I love these sweater reindeer, they are so fun.  This one is resting, I guess he's tired - -

but not this one, he is up and ready to go.

I need to get my act in gear - OUR 2017 CHRISTMAS HOME TOURS begin in just 3 short weeks, so I need to get my decorating done.  Be sure to mark your calendars, we have 30 of the most fabulous bloggers opening the doors to their homes and sharing their Holiday Decor.  30 homes over 5 days - December 4th thru 8th.

Ok, I have a ton of work to do and a lot of decor to get done.  I am hosting Thanksgiving, so I need to get the table in the dining room set and get my shopping done.   I am also knee deep in baking for all the holidays too.  How about you, are you starting any Christmas yet?

Perfect Hostess & Stocking Stuffer Gifts

I am always looking for the perfect hostess gift and I love to have some really nice things to put in the stockings too.  Finding just the right thing isn't always easy, but I think I have a great suggestion.  I don't know of anyone that doesn't enjoy a nice smelling home.  Finding a great scent that is easy to live with, doesn't shout at you and just makes the whole house smell wonderful is what I like.  I found some ideas that I think you will love too.  I received a few candles and sprays the other day from Field & Fleur that are fabulous.


I love the clean smell of any kind of citrus.  Lemon was my first love years ago, it just smelled so fresh.  Now I have found some more citrus scents that I love too.  Grapefruit and Persimmon is now one of my all time favorites.  So clean and fresh and the Persimmon smells like Christmas to me too.
 This diffuser comes in such a beautiful container too and the packaging is always beautiful.  This would be the perfect hostess gift for anyone.


There are some beautiful candles and a spray in this collection too.





Tulip - This smells like spring and is so fresh and wonderful.  The green color also reminds me of spring.  Great for a stocking stuffer or hostess gift.  How about a neighbor or co-worker too.

There are several other scents that remind you of the garden too.



I always love to have scented sprays for linens and for my lingerie drawer.  Turning the covers back to a fresh scent is always a treat.  I make sure to spray my guest room linens too.  Peony & Blush, such a soft floral scent.


There is also a beautiful assortment of candles in the fragrance too.


All three are definitely some of my favorite scents.


If you are looking for a special gift for someone on your gift-giving list, I think I found just the perfect thing.  This is such a unique idea.  Beautiful wax looking candles, but you just refill them again and again, so they never burn down.  I got three sizes and colors plus the big jar of oil all packed together as a wonderful gift for someone special on my list.   I know she is going to love this.

Here is how it works.  Isn't that fun and this will fill your home with fragrance and glow for over 200 hours.  Check them out here.


If you would like to add a few of these to your gift list be sure to check out Field & Fleur to discover all the wonderful scents and fragrances they have, plus all the beautiful candles and diffusers too.


I received product from Field & Fleur, but all opions are mine.

399th Inspire Me Tuesday

Welcome to the 399th Inspire Me Tuesday.  Tons of fun Thanksgiving and Christmas ideas shared last week, plus you guys are still doing the most amazing makeovers.

I know we all love a fabulous Kitchen Makeover and this one by Remodelando la Casa is absolutely gorgeous.  You really have to go see every detail, it is stunning.


Removeable Wallpaper is all the rage at the moment, but how about fabric.  Hymns & Verses shared how she used fabric to line the back of some shelves in a closet.  Genius.  This looks so pretty.


I am always looking for a different idea for a table centerpiece, especially for a really long table.  I love this Cylinder idea from Dining Delight.   I think you could buy cylinders at the $1 store and then get some floating candles at Walmart and you are good to go.  Love this.


If you have children to entertain for the Holidays, this is a perfect way to have their eyes light up.  How about the darling Coke Reindeer and Easy Coke Poke Cake from Embellishments.  Now how fun is this idea.

Ok, let's see what you have for this week.
