Christmas Kitchen Window Sill

 Hello, Dear Ones! Well, since we've been in the kitchen I thought I would go ahead and show you my window sill all Christmased up in the breakfast room! I love to decorate this little spot each season.
Here she is... 
 Just a bunch of olden things I've had forever but things that make me smile.
 I made this little wreath last Christmas time just for this spot. I didn't have the half shears up or my curtains made at that time, so this area really looked nekked! That's Texan talk from someone who has moved to upstate New York! ;) Sort of a baking theme going on with the gingerbread men, kitchen utensil and cookie cutters. You can't see them in this snap but the ribbon on the right has three little copper cookie cutters hanging down.
 I love my olden tins so I grabbed them and poked a couple of sparkly little Christmas trees on them. I also poked one Christmas tree right down on my runner. I'm so talented like that you know! ;)
 Then a couple of Santies. Twins. Did you know Santie had a twin? :) I've had these little boogers forever and they just make me smile. The one on the left is standing on some Goose Berry Patch cookbooks. I love those too.
 Then I have another little tree just for the breakfast room. This little tree does have lights but they're on a timer and don't come on til later in the day. Now you'll see all kinds of baking things and sweets hanging on this little tree along with some cute little bitty red pine cones!
I love to look at this and then I just smile and remember my mixer bowl is filled with Christmas balls and I am not gonna take them out or nuttin'! ;) Well, I might, but not today! 

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Fum, Fum, Fum

 On this joyful Christmas Day
Sing fum, fum, fum
On this joyful Christmas Day
Sing fum, fum, fum
For a blessed Babe was born
Upon this day at the break of morn
In a manger poor and lowly
Lay the Son of God most holy
Fum, Fum, Fum!

Thanks to God for holidays
Sing fum, fum, fum
Now we all our voices raise
And sing a song of grateful praise
Celebrate in song and story
All the wonders of His glory
Fum, fum, fum
~ sung by my tiny Christmas Tree

  19. My dear friend, I seem to have missed this post but it gives me good reason to stop by and wish you a wonderful Christmas - even though it's not as planned this year. You've been on my heart and in my prayers today. I'm asking God to fill your heart with the wonder of His gift and give you some (what my dear, little mother calls) 'glad surprises!

  20. I adore your kitchen window sill!! That wreath is absolutely charming with all the kitchen goodies on it - how clever of you! I am learning all sorts of cute tricks from all my blogland friends this Christmas - now if I can only find the time to do them all! xo

  21. Depending on weather conditions, a team of professional window installers can put the replacements in quickly and properly. Windows that are not properly fitted pose a security risk for your home, and will not provide the insulation that is required, which will result in higher energy bills. window installation
