Friday Pretties

We continue the Christmas tour from the kitchen, one of the favorite rooms in my house.  This tree hold my Grandmother's and Mother's cookie cutters as well as some miniature kitchen utensils, small tin teacups, snowflakes, candy canes and more.

A girl can't go wrong when preparing meals on a pink kitchen island.  Everyday is a holiday using this.

A big glass jar holds my collection of vintage cupcake picks, candle holders, candles and nut cups.  I store my cupcake liners here as well.  The measuring cups are a new find and yes, that is a pink one sandwiched in the middle. 

The little pink cupboard is prettified for Christmas with the addition of  a tiny tree.  I'm on the lookout for a stove to add to this piece.

I'm loving the vintage container found this week.  It holds my coffee liners and adds such charm to the coffee corner.

A little wink and a smile from some happy Holt Howard salt and pepper shakers.  Oh how I love Holt Howard!

Some sparkly pot holders from a local Christmas Bazaar add a homemade touch.  I try to imagine the person who made them.

My friend, Diane, made the little wreath and it ties the kitchen colors together so well.  I'm off to make some coffee and start my day.  A visit from my sweet niece is in order.  I love that she's in her 20's and I'm still Aunt Nay!

A thank you to Joyce for continuing to host Friday Pretties!
She's off to visit her sister and cousins for a fun weekend.
Visit her here.
