Plaid means Christmas to me! And, what better place to bring it out than in the kitchen where I spend so much time this month.

Our Hoosier cabinet is front and center in the kitchen. It gets a lot of use during the season as a buffet table for entertaining. The sponge-painted porcelain top pulls out for additional space.
I love adding pine cones into the Christmas decor. Living in pine-tree country, they are in abundance and free. See the tiny pine cone in the wheel barrow of the top left collage below -- that's a memory maker -- I picked that up off the ground in Bavaria on a trip to Germany.
Another Jim Shore Santa makes an appearance in the 'new to me' vintage plaid picnic basket.
It's time to get to the meal planning, entertaining, cookie making, etc.
