Santas

I thought I'd show you some of my Christmas decor today. These pictures are from my kitchen,which is more "rustic" than the living and dining rooms.I love this Santa picture. It is on a piece ot tin. It's not old but looks it. I painted this a few years ago. I have different pictures that go in it. I'll put a snowman picture in when Christmas is over.
When I had my kitchen done I had one glass cupboard door and I painted it dark green. The contractor thought I was crazy but I love displaying things it it. This is where I put some vintage Santas and light boxes. The Saturday Evening Post box is a puzzle my Mom had. The plastic Santa holding a bubble light on the bottom shelf we had when I was a kid.I decided to display this woven blanket since it doesn't match my house the rest of the year.
The Merry Christmas wooden letters were perfect for the shelf. The light bulbs are wooden ones I painted, antiqued and strung on some twine.

Jean, I love the prim look of your kitchen! Even though all of the glittery stuff is beautiful, I will take old and tattered any day...

Jean, I love your country Christmas kitchen!

I used to do major kitchen decorating for Christmas--putting a tree in the kitchen and everything. I don't do it anymore. I sort of miss it all.

That glass display cabinet is delightful. Perfect for all the holidays. And I bet you decorate for all of them.
