Christmas At Our House, Part 3, The Kitchen

November 30, 2012

More Christmas decorating here at Knitionary, my 3rd decorating post and not my last!

The pine buffet in the kitchen is one of my favorite spots to decorate.
I filled some of my favorite Arte Italica pieces 
with faux fruit from Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel.

These pewter pieces are timeless, and go from casual to formal in an instant.
Some of the pieces I have here are still available, the little basket,
the Tuscan 3 tiered stand, and the elegant glass fruit bowl.

These pieces are ready to go if I need to use them for holiday entertaining

Also in the kitchen on my windowsill are the clothespin dollies.
These are so fun to make, and I've made quite a few sets over the years.
They're a happy sight when I'm working at the sink.

You can see the different sets I've made here, here, and here.

Am I the only one decorating this early?  Has anyone else started yet?
How's it going?

Next post, the Angel Orchestra, tra la!
