A few weeks ago, I showed you my Gingerbread Kitchen Wreath after I had finished it, but here it is looking even better after I added this candy garland around the chalkboard!
I already had the garland and used it last year in decorating our kitchen, but I couldn’t find it for a few weeks. I was so happy to pull it out of the box and use it here. It used to hang in my friend Faye’s kitchen, and I bought it at her garage sale. Here it is, Faye, and you can see that it’s still bringing joy to us here at Windhams Crossroads!
Another new thing that I added this year is this garland over the kitchen windows. My friend Marti taught me how to make bows with a bow maker that I had purchased at our church’s bazaar. So happy that I can finally make a decent bow!
I strung some vintage gingerbread cookie cutters and some cinnamon applesauce ornaments that I made last year over the stove. It is amazing how wonderful the little ornaments still smell after being stored away all year. On the shelf I printed a cute saying that I found on Pinterest and popped it into a frame. And do you remember how the gingerbread pot holder ran away last year and hid behind the stove? Well, I retrieved him and here he hangs!
So handy to have it hanging in clear view, and because it’s there, I just have to use this recipe! The tea towel is another Mary Lake Thompson item that I ordered from here:( Amazon affiliate link) Gingerbread Cookies Recipe Towel- Gingerbread Men Oh lawd! You should see all the cute towels that she has! I am in serious trouble since I’ve found her items on Amazon!
Well, no. Blogger’s get great ideas by reading other bloggers’ posts! You can read how I did it in Beth’s post: Christmas Kitchen Decorating!
And this has nothing to do with Christmas, but I wanted to show you this wax warmer that I found at Walmart over a year ago. Yes, I’m just getting around to sharing that with ya, but I was happy to find one in black and white!
