An old white box...a bare spot & a plate rack...

                  Morning..... been busy in the kitchen adding bits of this and that for Christmas..went to a wonderful tag sale on Sunday and found this old white box.....I love it!!!!
                           I had been wanting something special for my island and this is it....
                     One thing led to another and I decided to add some holiday cheer to "the waste of space" above the cupboards...do you look there in other peoples kitchens I know I do ?!
                     Then I went down the basement and got the plate rack John made for me last year...
            it fits perfectly above the stove...don't know why I ever took it down...well thats all I wanted to show you...going for a walk now to see if I can steal some more greenery from somewhere....I mean find some greenery lying about somewhere....; )  

           So glad you came by...I love reading the notes you leave me....xoxo

Love that old box, Chrissy! I have one much like and have been wanting to paint it white for a while. I wasn't sure if it would look good, but now I know... it would!
What a beautiful plate rack! Love the way you displayed your pretty treasures. It's looking a lot like Christmas at your place...

Greetings, Chrissy!

This is my very first visit to your on-line home. I love your style and presentation of your blog. I very much enjoyed my time with you today and will return.

Your photo of the white box inspired me to paint one of my Dad's old wooden boxes and fill it with greenery for the holidays. What a beautiful idea!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

I just love it when I know I want something in a space and I know that I will "know it" when I see it...then I find it, or it finds you! Everything looks lovely and peaceful as always. The greenery adds such a nice touch.

Love big boxes like that for storage. Greenery always finishes things off so well this time of year. I love going around the house add sprigs here and there.
