Friday Faves...My Christmas-y Kitchen and Dining Room...

Last week I promised to show you the Christmas decorations in my kitchen and dining room.
If you haven't seen my previous Christmas decor posts you can see
my Christmas mantel here
my Christmas living room here.
On my dining room table I made a simple centerpiece using Target dollar spot ceramic houses,
Ikea glass vases, faux snow and a faux tree from Michael's.  
I had most of these items already and just used them in a new way.
On the dish cabinet is my collection of antique santa cups,
(and some flowers my husband brought me!)
The little santa with a lid is a candle purchased at Marshall's.
Also in the dining room are my knock-off Restoration Hardware shelves
with simple Christmas touches added here and there.
For the second year I've added a simple bare branch with a few Christmas bobbles to this large demijohn.

On the shelf hangs some copper cookie cutter lights.
A little metal house from JoAnn's Craft and Fabric Store sits by a bottle brush tree in a little tart pan.
A favorite ironstone pitcher is filled with some foraged wintery foliage.

Between the dining room and kitchen is our little reading nook.
A wee faux tree sits inside an antique copper cookie jar
 and is decorated with a pom pom garland and copper cookie cutter lights.

And now, my kitchen.
Mimicking the windows in the reading nook, pom pom garlands hang above the kitchen windows.
A sweet little old fashioned vignette sits by my kitchen sink.

My white kitchen always has touches of my favorite color red so that works perfectly for this season!

 Thank you for joining me today!

It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and a safe and BLESSED weekend!
