Christmas Treasures

Hey my friends!
Only 20 days until Christmas?
Wow! It's coming fast :)

Here are some more photos of my kitchen all dressed in Christmas decor.
Next week we will be having a little gingerbread baking party.


My mom started this tradition about 7 years ago with her grand kids.
The week before Christmas, we would gather to bake cookies
(and they would mysteriously run away...)
she always had surprise gingerbread goodies for us to take home,
like these mugs and plates.




So it's important to me to carry on the tradition, in honor of my mom :)


Here, I've displayed some special Christmas treasures made by my little ones.




It's an easy way to display those Christmas keepsakes
and decorate your house at the same time :)




We have all of our mugs and plates ready for hot chocolate and
yummy Christmas desserts.


The fresh rosemary smells so good!

Are you making memories and carrying on traditions this Christmas?

I am joining the Deck the Halls Party
and
Make It for Monday

Blessings,
Becky C

I am in love with the whimsy! Your kitchen is so pretty. I love how white and bright it is. The pops of Christmas color look beautiful in here. And I love that you are carrying on traditions. One tradition we're continuing this year is our advent calendar. It's so much fun.

I love all of the nostalgia going on in your kitchen. That's so much what it's about...memories.

My oldest daughter is doing a baking day on Tuesday with my youngest and a couple of her homeschool friends. She has made a recipe book to send home with them as well as the goodies they make. They are all so excited. Have fun with your cooking day. Wish we could do it together. Wouldn't that be fun?

What a wonderful tradition to share. I think that's what I like most about the holidays, the family traditions. La

The rosemary is a wonderful touch--who says pine or mistletoe are the only holiday greens?! Thanks for the humble yet welcoming holiday decor!

The gingerbread pieces bring some colourful Christmas cheer to your kitchen. Great memories too, I'm sure. I also treasure the handmade and school-made gifts from our kids. Your treasures look lovely displayed so prominently.

Just darling! I love the oven mitt that says that love is the secret ingredient ;o)
