This is my kitchen window ~ I spend a fair amount of time in this very spot during the holidays. So why wouldn't I want to make it a place worth being in? I always hang my favorite wreath right above the sink to enjoy. I'm enamored with square wreaths ~ I found mine here. They come with pine cones already wired on and they smell heavenly. I vacillate every year whether or not to tie on a floppy ribbon ~ but I think the wreath is so beautiful in and of itself, I always talk myself out of it.
Underneath the wreath on the window sill I line up some vintage scale weights ~ I think they look artistic, stately and strong.
My decorations by choice for Christmas ~ pretty + simple = a calmer me. :)
A white ironstone pitcher (thrift store find ~ for only a dollar!) holds "candy cane" spoons.
Old silver glass ornaments lay nestled in a milk glass compote bowl ~ it belonged to Nana.
That's all for today ~ I'm off to tackle some Christmas shopping ~ I hope you've gotten more done than I have. I don't have one present bought yet ~ yikes ~ nineteen days and counting!
