Yea!!! The Kitchen Is Done


I like a little whimsy in the kitchen, it's the favorite place for my great-grandson to be.

I've already shown you the island.

And this side of the counter with the Ragmop Santa and the Toy cloche.

Since eating is a huge part of Christmas, the corner needed a couple of changes.

A little vino to drink and fruit of all kinds.

Cheese is always good with a little champagne from the chef.

Then of course "sweets" are the best of all.  A fun assortment of faux sweets under a cloche.

Don't forget the Christmas Cloche Party on the 10th. We always have so much fun. If you don't have a cloche, remember, hurricanes, apothecary jars or anything you can decorate inside or under is great.


                          Thanks so much for stopping by. I always appreciate your visits.
