Christmas Kitchen

I love to decorate above the kitchen cabinets! I did it for the first time with my fall decor and now for Christmas. I do not have high ceilings so there is only about 8 inches to work with here. Some things I would have loved to have used were just too tall.

..and for those who have asked - yes, my cabinets were custom made...and YES - I do have a thing for X's!

This is a laying deer, flocked in solid black...purchased at the infamous Walmart last year.

This is a German smoker. He breaks apart at the waist and you can put an incense cone inside. When you light it, smoke comes out of his mouth as if he were smoking his pipe. Yeah - I know ..I don't smoke and do not try and promote it, but since I had these things when I was a child, I could not resist having one as a big kid too! Sometimes you can find them with the Santa holding a piping hot cup of hot chocolate but I have not seen one in a very long time.

I love your cabinets! I don't have any room above my cabinets. They go up to the ceiling unfortunately. I always wish I had space to put pretty things up there. Maybe in my next house it'll happen. We hope to move this year.

Pretty! Love your cabinets and how the design harks back to the fact that your lovely home is above the barn. YOur decorations make me want to haul out the ladder and do the cabinets above our fridge.
