My Christmas Kitchen

I remember Show and Tell from my kindergarten days; how I loved to have something to share. Kelli from Kelli's House hosts this fun meme. Go to her place to join in the fun!

I have a few Christmas things in my kitchen that I'd like to share. These trivets were purchased in 1982. They're ceramic and have hooks on the backs that would allow them to be hung. They rest on little rubber feet. I like to leave them on my stove top. The color brings a bit of Christmas into my kitchen.



Here's Mr. Snowman. I bought him a few years ago. I love the little white star on top of the paper towels he holds for me. Of course, I enjoy his blue and white attire too! His cheerful face makes him a favorite of my grandkids. I don't remember where he was when I bought him.





Of course, I have hot pads; I'm sure you do too. My mother gave me these, and that's why they're special to me.



Christmas cookies need a cookie jar, and I found this lovely nativity cookie jar at Walmart a few years ago. I just love it! You rooster lovers take note of the guy on the roof!



I'm giving away some cooking books. See my sidebar if you're interested.

Good morning Sally, Your Christmas kitchen is so festive and lovely. I have never seen a nativity cookie jar. It's so pretty. I can see why you love it. All of your decorations are so nice. I have never seen a snowman towel holder either. Where have I been? LOL I have to get out more to shop. I hope you have a great day. Don't eat to many Christmas cookies :>)

Good morning Sally, I just love that snowman hugging your paper towels, too cute! I'm a lover of cookie jars and the nativity jar is so unique and adorable with that rooster on the roof.
I love my makeup book so much that I bought one for a friend. I've been restraining myself from entering anymore of your book giveaways since I won but the cookbooks are tempting me. I might have to take a look and throw my name in the hat.
Hugs, Bridget

Thanks for visiting my blog today! I love your show and tell items ... especially the nativity themed cookie jar. A friend mentioned recently that she has just purchased a small durable nativity set to keep down low, where her grandchildren can play with it and ask lots of questions. What a great way to teach them the truth of Christmas!
