Christmas Kitchen Peek

It is that time of year...

When everything is sprinkled with a bit of Christmas magic.
Including the kitchen.

Though I have to be honest... I am running behind on a few things over here with Christmas. Mainly waiting on fresh greens for the kitchen - it didn't arrive in time to get this post done. 
Which means- a peek is it today & a look at Christmas past.

Thanks so much to my friend Kristen for hosting our  Holiday blog series- one of my favorites every year! 

One of my favorite things about Christmas? 
The twinkles.

Whether on a tree, a mantel or on a little tree in a little pot in the kitchen. 

This is a wee  (3' tall) Sanibel Spruce from Balsam Hill. 

You might remember seeing this tree in a full tree size before- it is such a gorgeous sage green color that absolutely glows when lit.

I love the simple look and charm it has.  Currently it is just wearing a bit of citrus for decor-so easy to decorate with and you can add a few or a cover the tree and it is beautiful.
Seriously in love with the citrus touches this year- and you will be seeing more
 of them popping up soon.

A vintage copper mold filled with persimmons echo's the warmth of the citrus. 

It is a simple, yet sweet and very little sprinkle of holiday cheer in here for now- and this cute tree is already on the move somewhere else  so stay tuned for how the kitchen
 looks when it is wrapped up soon.
