Christmas kitchen

As most of you know we will be spending Christmas in Houston with our family, so I only pulled out a few things from the attic. Just to make it a little festive while we're home.
I shared my gingerbread tree with you already.

I simply added two candy canes, some burlap and ribbon to my rooster to make him a little festive.
Vintage Betty Crocker cookbook.
Tied some ribbons on the canisters. 

This is my favorite rooster in the house. 

I love this cookbook, there are so many great cookies and the pictures are great!
(yard sale find last year)

These wonderfully vintage Santa mugs were an estate sale find (last year) for $6 they were coming home with me.
The Mackenzie Childs tray was a gift from my husband in October.

  I moved the red scale over here for now, draped it with a vintage Christmas towel and topped with one of the Santa mugs.

The figurines were a goodwill find a couple years ago.
Towels are from Cracker Barrel.

 The next picture I decided to play around some.
Grabbed a rolling pin from my bouquet, a vintage pyrex bowl and apron. 

Hopefully next year I'll be able to add to the gingerbread kitchen I'm dreaming of!
I'll be busy packing and cleaning for the next few days before we leave.
 I hope y'all have a Merry Christmas.

Hi Michele! OH, I love your kitchen and all of your sweet Christmas touches! That Rooster is mighty handsome all decked out in his candy canes and ribbon. Love your display with the olden scale. I have been looking for a scale!

Your kitchen looks so cute! Wonderful little touches of holiday cheer. I know the feeling about not being home. We are going to TX too. I did not realize that was where you were from. I was born and raised in Houston. My parents now live in E. TX so that's where we are headed as soon as the kids get out of school. Dread the drive!
Have a safe trip and a Merry Christmas!

Hello Michele,
I hope you have a wonderful time with your family this Christmas - Love your rooster! You've added the perfect touches to your kitchen! I hope you stop by to enter my giveaway,

I love your little tree in the kitchen. I once had that theme on a tree in my kitchen and enjoyed it. I still have the little ornaments packed away. I once did a candy tree too. Little trees like that are so much fun to do! You've got some adorable ornaments on yours. I especially like the candy cane tree topper! I don't blame you for decorating less this year since you're not even going to be there on Christmas. I would do the same thing!
