Warmed Up With Red- Part 2

I don't know about you, but I'm still feeling somewhat somber in light of the terrible events in Connecticut. It just doesn't feel right to be too silly over decorating, etc. 

I don't have alot of words today, but I promised to show you the other area of the house where I like to use red at Christmas time, which is the kitchen/dining area. Yesterday I shared how I warmed up my normally neutral master bedroom using cozy color and fabrics.  I hope you enjoy taking a look at some of our colorful details!

 Our Christmas/Winter dishes, out for the first time this week for blueberry pancakes on a bright morning.

Some fun vintage kitchen items: My mixer is now sadly retired after recently failing to help prepare the Monkey Bread icing :(

 I'm not going to say it makes the best coffee, but it still works great for boiling water!

Some of our fun aprons.

Some vintage cookie cutters and my grandma's old fruitcake tin. When I got it, it was full of her old buttons and sewing notions!

I couldn't decide if I wanted to keep the pail! I went ahead and listed it in the shop {sigh} Sometimes it's hard to let go.

As fun as it is to have some cheerful red through the Christmas season, I have a feeling by New Year's day I'll be ready to go back to my winter whites : )

I'm working on a few things for the The Penny and the Pearl this weekend. Come take a peek when you have a minute!

See you soon!


Sharing at these fun places! :

  1. My dear,
    I found your blog by chance, while peeking others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I am really delighted with yours. It's beautiful, well structured, interesting… and it has completely got me hooked. I think we're going to get along just fine! ;) I'd like to invite you to meet my space as well and I hope you'll have as much fun as I am having in yours!
    I wish you lots of success
