Welcome to my very favorite room at StoneGable… the kitchen! If you visit me, you will probably find me here. I love to putter and cook and spend time in this room that collects people like honey. Everyone gravitates to the kitchen, especially during Christmas. My aprons are embellished with greens and berries and candy canes and a little flour from baking cookies. They are hung on my plate hooks with care. I hope that Saint Nick will soon be here. It won’t be long now… but while I’m waiting for that jolly old elf why don’t you come on in and look around!

Welcome to our homes…
I’m sharing my Christmas kitchen today!
My kitchen is a workhorse so I keep it pretty free from seasonal decor. I love uncluttered counters so I embellish them lightly with Christmas decor.
My vintage breadbox holds greens during Christmas! And one of the big glass jars on the counter has candy canes in it. YUM!
Adding greens to my black and white kitchen makes it festive and a bit sassy! I love mixing blacks, whites and greens.
I’m using black an white checked ribbons again this year. Boxwood wreath flank the cooktop and stove.
Earl the pig, aka The Earl Of StoneGable loves his wreath necklace. Isn’t he handsome? He’s ready for Christmas! Earl has a big job keeping an eye on everything that goes on in the kitchen!
If you would like to know how to keep live cut greens looking fresh longer click HERE. I soaked the wreath for 24 hours and then sprayed it with an antitranspirant to keep it fresh. You can find out more HERE.
Our coffee station gets a workout daily!
My “Courtley” pitcher from MacKenzie-Childs is filled with a variety of greens.
I’m wild about Lemon Cyprus trees. They do very well inside as long as you water them often! I put them in a long basket of pine cones and they flank a big lantern.
The kitchen cart at the end of my island has a few Christmas decorations on them too. Now I mostly decorate with green and organic things. This cart is a good example of my Christmas style!
If you come to StoneGable I’ll probably answer the door in my apron!
My breakfast room is just off the kitchen.
I’ll be busy in my kitchen from now until Christmas baking and making dishes for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and the weekend!
