The Kitchen Tree

How is it possible that this is Christmas weekend???
This has been an incredibly busy season for me.
Beginning in early November with our Holiday Show,
on to Thanksgiving and having Kate home for the weekend.
Then, decorating and shopping for the holidays.
After that, my brother Rick and I made a quick trip together
to visit our parents.
All the while, I've also been working diligently to get
my Etsy orders shipped in a timely manner and
producing new items to restock the "shop."

As a result, I haven't done a single holiday posting.
I didn't want you to think I was a total Scrooge.
I am enjoying lots of pretty holiday decorations.
One of my favorites is a small kitchen tree
for which I've been collecting ornaments for many years.

So, let me pour you a cup of tea
and let's enjoy the tree for a bit!

Would you like a gingerbread cookie?

Or perhaps a s'more?

I think I'll have a lovely sugar dipped cherry
and some whipped cream.
This is an ornament a good friend, Debby made years ago.
It's one of my favorites.

Perhaps we could share
some favorite recipes?

Real espresso cups make ideal ornaments for a kitchen tree.

Sitting atop my little kitchen tree is the Chef.
He helps me with holiday meals.

Thanks so much for letting me share
the kitchen tree with you.
I've already been thinking of resolutions for the new year.
One of which is to be a better neighbor in Blog Land,
visiting you and inviting you into Buttermilk Cottage!

Happiest of holidays to each and every one of you!

Merry Christmas Susan, I liked your kitchen Christmas tree. I like the tea pot and cup. It reminds me of the older days when people made things like that. I am sitting here eating red velvet cake with a cup of hot tea while I take a break and catch up with some of my friends. They closed down work at 11 this morning and I am off until Tuesday. I am hoping I get my Christmas wish, which is my oldest boy comes home from Louisiana. He started a new job there the 31st of October. Have a wonderful christmas. Your Missouri Friend
