Christmas Kitchen Window . . .

I'm still decorating, but I did want to show you my kitchen window decorations.
This window is right over my sink and it's one of my favorite spots to decorate for any season.
During the Christmas season I have a beautiful view of the lights on the entrance to the subdivision across the street. Also, the first house has a gorgeous light display.

I just love my sweet little gingerbread man light that I won from a giveaway three years ago.

I bought this tree from QVC several years ago.
I decided to add some icicles this year.
There are no 'real' lights on this tree, just strings of faux lights from Hobby Lobby.
I don't have many ornaments on this tree, but each one has special meaning.

Hallmark ornament bought many years ago . . .

this house belonged to my Mother . . .

felt snowman, a gift from a student . . .

Santa baker & a gingerbread house . . .

Okay, time to start fluffing the house again.
Come back soon to see more Christmas bling.

Love your 'Christmas Kitchen Window!'
It makes me miss my window over my sink a bit.

I also love your curtains. Super cute and cheerful :)

Hope you have a great week, my friend.

What sweet decorations! I'm slowing getting ours put out. I need to hurry though or they won't be out for long.

Oh Carol, how pretty your window looks, specially the tree and gingerbreads! I love a window over the sink, I have one but I haven't inspired myself like you yet, so thank you for sharing. FABBY

Oh kids are so cute, aren't day? I'm sure you have such sweet memories of your daughter playing with it and I do too from my daughters one is the mother of the grands too! They also loved to play with the same Nativity one I have now, except it was a huge Nativity village 3 X the size of this one!! Hugs, FABBY

Love all of your 'stuff!' I, too, am a fan of QVC, so I love your tree. Also love your kitchen curtain, red is my favorite color. I also saw your dining room (post you wrote after you wrote this one) and your checkered valance and table runner both look beautiful! I love the lighted garland on the window too. And the fact that you didn't sew anything is something that is right up my alley, you are a girl after my own heart. (I, unfortunately, am NOT a sew-er!)
Best,
Gloria
