Christmasing on the Window Sill

Hello, Dear Ones! I showed you my Christmas kitchen wreath so today I want to show you how I've Christmased up my window sill in the kitchen.
There's my little gingerbread baker's wreath and the cuteness just continues. I just love me some cuteness, especially in the kitchen where I spend so much time.
I've got quite a bit of space to play with and I've done my very best.
I poked up a spring rod on the two smaller windows surrounding the center one and slid on some little ornaments and then threw on some garland to hide the rod.
I loved this!
My Jadeite was feeling a bit jaded (I just amaze myself) so I pulled some out of the cabinet to use on the window sill.
This Jadeite bowl was filled with ribbon balls I made many moons ago. They were fun to make and I really should make some more. The nutcracker cookie press was given to me by my daughter when she was 18 years old! I've never 'pressed' with it but it comes out each Christmas.
I filled this Jadeite bowl with wooden Santa icicle ornies and poked it up on an olden scale.
You know I love my cow creamers and this little red one was screaming "Christmas!" so out she came and I gave her a wreath and poked her up on a tin and voila! Christmoos! :)
Now I've had this little gingerbread baker girl for a long time and she seemed just perfect to keep with my baking theme in here. I poked her up on my square milk glass cake stand, gave her some cookies and a little Jadeite pitcher to lean her tiny back against.
I've used another of my olden scales and poked down a gingerbread man cookie vase that is really supposed to hold a candle. I poked in some little red ornies. Do you see that darling little caroling angel?
My sweet friend Linda who blogs at A la Carte sent it to me. I love her and I thank you again, Linda! Can you hear her singing about cookies??
When I showed you our kitchen after we had it painted I told you how I didn't like these lights and the snakelike pendants over the cooktop. Well, I'm changing my tiny mind! Well, for the moment on this fixture. I've never had lights that I could decorate on before but these work!
I poked up some more of the same garland I used on the windows and added my nonwired ribbon. Christmas lights! I love it.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (this song almost makes me cry everytime I hear it)

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.

Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now. 

~ sung by Judy Garland
