Christmas At Our Home - Part Two

Last week I showed you what our living room looks like this year for Christmas.


And this week, I thought I'd show you the kitchen and dining room...
the theme in this area is definitely gingerbread men...


Since I took this picture last week, I've made a few changes..
as you can see, I have a string hanging for a banner..


But since we don't have a fireplace,
I decided to hang our stockings there..


this will be Macie's first Christmas....
and I got her stocking from Snip It Up...
lots of cute stuff and I'm sure I'll be back..soon..lol..


On top of the hutch I added my favorite Subway art from Eighteen 25
as well as a gingerbread house and gingerbread man...

I can't remember where I got the gingerbread house...
either JC Penny or Kohls and the gingerbread man is from Goodwill...


Tucked into the corner is my gingerbread tree...

and would you believe that many of my cookbooks were found at Goodwill?
After I watched the movie, Julie & Julia, I found the Joy of Cooking cookbook
at Goodwill and I also found one in light blue for Crystal..
I think its a very complicated cookbook...


On the side of the pantry, I've hung my gingerbread stockings as well as
the stocking for Storm...
Storm is on a diet right now so Santa won't be leaving him anything this year..


Over the kitchen sink are my favorite curtains...Waverly Garden Room Vintage Rose..
and I hung a banner of glittered pinecones across the top..
and a gingerbread swag across the bottom layer..


We happened to be at Ace Hardware one day and I went to check
out the Christmas decorations and found these cute gingerbread men...


The gingerbread theme continues on the countertop..

I made these primitive candy canes and blogged about it here...
super easy and fit in nicely with my gingerbread theme...


One last picture...I couldn't seem to get Gilmore to move..
not sure why but our cats seem to love to nap here..

Now I need to finish up my cookie baking..
and party chex mix......

Wishing you all a fantastic week!
