~Christmas in the kitchen~

Happy Monday!


How is everyone doing today???
I'm good....


can you even believe Thanksgiving is a little
more than a week away???

yikes...and that means Christmas
is coming up real quick like...

like...time to drag out decorations...
{now that didn't sound very positive did it?? hee hee}


but doesn't it just seem like the end of summer still?
ok, not really....let's go with the end of October?

I think 2 full months of October would suit me fine....
just need a bit more time to get ready for the
holidays......


but I do believe they are "upon" us....
it's time.....yep....
the 24/7 Christmas music has begun....
{my 11 year old daughter was gleeful over this!! }


and since
we'll be spending a lot of time in our
kitchens this next week or so,

I thought it'd be nice to look at some pretty
kitchens.....all dressed up & ready for the
holidays....maybe it'll rub off & get me Mr. T & T
all jazzed up to crawl into the attic & haul
down 10 tubs of Christmas.....

now, who wouldn't want to do that?
what fun it'll be!
 hee hee hee


these pics are very inspiring...
aren't they???

see now....it's working...
getting those creative juices going....


oh bulbs.....bulbs in containers...
bulbs in cups....bulbs in teapots...

I need bulbs...

I mean how can any self respecting blogger
decorator professional pinner person
go on without forcing bulbs???

so totally beautiful....
love them!!



I've got the cutest little containers
that I do believe I'll be forcing some bulbs
in this Christmas.....
{now if that wasn't the longest run-on sentence of all time....}


sorry, got a little off track there.....
the bulbs sucked me in & got me all crazy like...

where was I?
oh yes....
talking about cute kitchens, getting ready
for the holidays....sending Mr. T & T up into the attic
to drag down Christmas tubs, & wanting 2 Octobers
each year.....
how could I lose that train of thought???
{....s.c.a.r.y.....}


where are you "at"?
are you feeling ready to go?
ready to decorate?
ready for Thanksgiving?

ready for fudge, turkey, cookies, ham, treat plates,
candy canes, stuffing, cranberries, pine needles,
bulbs, trees, wreaths, pine cones, ribbon, packaging,
and s.h.o.p.p.i.n.g.?

am I making you tired?
:)

share your thoughts!


Have a great day!!



xoxo,

Petite Michelle Louise said...

i soooo love xmas but i don't even THINK about decorating around here until after thanksgiving. the minute that "tryptophan" is digested though....the attic boxes come down and the "decking of the halls" commences!! LOL! :)

Blondie's Journal said...

Your pictures have inspired me to do a little more decorating in the kitchen other than a few statues and a wreath!! Everything is very simple and subtle...love it! And yes, the hauling out of the tubs in my basement is the worst part. That's why I procrastinate. But this year I am going to be early {hopefully!!}

Have a great evening. You forgot to mention your weather!

XO,
Jane

I'm with you about the 'end of summer' thing.... the sun will be shining and I'll go outside in a hoody and then FREEZE, and it hits me, I am still in denial.

I have one Christmas vignette on display in the kitchen.... but do dread bringing in all those huge bins from the garage.... until I see the contents, and then I will be excited!!!

Beautiful inspiring kitchens!

Yes, I am getting in the mood. You found some beautiful inspiration to get us all going. My five year old was pretty excited when I put some Christmas music on today...I thought it would motivate me.
