Christmas has arrived in the kitchen and it smells like balsam and gingerbread with a sprinkle of peppermint.
I tried my hand at making wreaths this year. We cut greens from the yard. I attached small bunches of the mixed greens with wire to wire wreath forms. The bows are made with red stripe jute upholstery webbing.
The gingerbread house is the centerpiece.
There are greens in an old blue bucket tied with a cinnamon star ornament made by my step daughter. The empty lobster claw shell is from the biggest lobster my husband ever caught – 15 lbs.
There are more candy canes on the kitchen window sill, because let’s face it, nothing says Christmas like candy canes.
