I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

Christmas Candy Kitchen, Part 1, Christmas Home Tour, 2016

 Welcome to Part 1 of my tour of our Christmas Candy Kitchen!!

 Since my Kitchen is painted red, it is very easy to decorate for Christmas and I do a Candy and Gingerbread theme in the Kitchen every year.......
 In this post, I will be sharing how I decorated this part of the Kitchen........

We will start on this side........
On one of 2 shelves that my Dad made out of scrap wood when we first got married many years ago........

I decorated a 4 1/2 foot Tree in an urn in with Candy and Gingerbread related ornaments......
It fits perfectly next to the hutch.......
Tree # 15
You can see that it sits in front of our message board!!
Let's take a closer look......
A cute vintage looking Christmas tin its on the floor next to the Tree.......
Along with a child's pair of skates......
I am not a lover of Pre Lit trees because this was one of 4 trees that I had to cut all the lights off this year!!!

I do prefer to light my own Trees..........

Even the 2 sets of candy lights I had added to this Tree did not work so I used the candy covers on another light set in the Kitchen ( you will see where in Part 2) and strung a new set of candy lights on the Tree this year.......
The hutch.........

My "Cooking " Santa 's over look the Kitchen from the top of the hutch......
The top shelf......
New this year is a large glass jar filled with vintage cookie cutters......
The 2nd shelf......
Some new Christmas spatulas were added to the bowl full of vintage utensils.......
On the desk part of the hutch......

My Christmas Candy Bar......
Underneath the desk.........
A Christmas Bear sits on a vintage picnic basket.....
On the knobs of the drawers........
On the other side of the hutch......
On the other shelf that my Dad made....
A wreath made out of candy that I bought at a craft fair...........
Above the door way to the Den.....
A plate depicting a Victorian family baking cookies......
And that concludes Part 1 of my tour of our Christmas Candy Kitchen......

In my next post, I will be showing you the rest of the kitchen decorated for Christmas......
So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

  7. Wow, Debbie, your kitchen is amazing. I have a set of the same canisters with the red flowers. I loved so many things I can't pick just one or two. I do like those candy cane lights however. I just want to come over and look at everything.

  9. Love your Christmas decorations. The trees are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing at Funtastic Friday.
