My Christmas Kitchen

 Twas the days before Christmas
      and
            all though the house.
The creatures were stiring
except  this sweet mouse!
The aprons were hung in the kitchen with care,
in hopes that some baking soon would appear!

With the cookie jars full~


And the cabinets all pretty~


The candles were lit,



and Santa was ready!



Our goodies and tea are ready to try~



When we sit at the table and give a sweet sigh.



With light from the windows
and wreaths hung in place,


The kitchen is ready for it's seasonal pace.

With dinners to plan~
and vases to fill,

We'll share all our blessings
and a cup of good cheer!

Throw open the doors to reveal upon high,



Mistletoe waiting for each passer by.

Christmas in my kitchen is special each year
because of the love we find living here.


Like a wreath of good tidings with never an end,
I thank you for coming 
and
to you I send~
Big Christmas Wishes
to all my dear friends.


Blessings for your December days,
Celestina Marie

See you soon with more from the library/family room and hand painted Santa's from years past!

I love your take on this old story, Celeste...and you have the pictures to complete each thought.
Everything looks so pretty. I see a little pearlized white porcelain tree in the background there. That makes me smile. I had two of them and they BOTH broke during a move. I used to love painting that greenware back in the 70's & early 80's. xo Diana
