A rainy holiday morning in the kitchen ~

Last night Santa came early and brought us rain. No gift could be more welcome.

It was still raining when I went into the kitchen this morning and turned on all of the little lights and Christmas music, the rain outside made the room seem extra cozy and festive.

A little peek out of the window shows a lovely soft rain; everything seems to turn green instantly.

Although we needs lots and lots of rain to end our serious drought every bit helps and this is certainly going to do wonders for the lettuce and strawberries I just planted.

I decorated this little tree with some of the snowball ornaments I made last week. and then added a twig garland, snowflakes and sugar plums. It is fairly simple, but that's what I was aiming for this year.

Of all the rooms in the house I find the kitchen the most fun and the easiest to decorate for the holidays, and since it is a room I spend a lot of time in it just adds to my enjoyment.


I finally got something up on my chalkboard, I find printing on chalkboards quite challenging but I am pleased with the way it turned out this time. 

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Joyeux Noël
