My new color combination for the Christmas kitchen......

I confess, I have never considered BLACK for the holidays,
but the more I looked at this....the more I loved it!
So...with this in mind....I had the inspiration I was looking for
to create a kitchen vignette at Estelle's!

"What's going on here?"

"This looks like we are decorating for Christmas....!!!
Oh....I do LOVE the kitty napkins......these are just for me I presume...."

"Could this be a craft project for me and my mama?"

"Hmmm.....got milk?"

"I spy a RIBBON to play with in that package....
NOW, I am REALLY excited...
I can get all rumbly-tumbly with a ribbon....!!!!!

"The fun just keeps on coming....
a BALL to roll down the stairs!!"

"What are we doing with those?
Are you serving me my kibble in these?"

"I like it already..."

"It looks like she has some good ideas in the works....
and yes....I am going to be right in the MIDDLE of all this fun!"

  1. I like the colour combinations you chose. Those cat napkins are very cute! -Jenn

    1. I so appreciate our visit today Jenn! Merry Christmas...the season is here!

  2. Aw Mae, how gorgeous you are. And I'm with you...love the napkins. Must mention the putz house in the header. That's the prettiest one I've seen.

    1. Hi Deb! Mae thanks you and I loved your visit today! Have a beautiful winter weekend!

  3. BJ is going to keel over looking at all this Christmas goodness here! Just what she likes. Do you find yourself shopping for blogging buddies? I do all the time. It's kind of fun since I don't usually actually shop...more like window shopping. Oh my! Your header is another marvelous creation. I don't know how you do it, but you have an eye for color...ohhhhhh, yes you do!

  4. Of course you have an eye for color! You even matched Miss Mae to the mugs! ☺

  5. I knew inspiration would come! Those are great things. I spy some items I have seen at my local store! Mae Mobley is a sweet kitty!

    1. Hi Deanna! Thank you for taking time to visit today. I have loved reading about what's going on at your lovely home! Have a great weekend!

  6. You are so very sweet Vee. Thank you for the lovely comments and for your visit today. We are dealing with health issues with Mae currently, so I am a bit distressed. I do wish you a lovely day!

  7. Oh, how pretty! Who knew black was a good color for Christmas? Love the cat napkins and yes, I can just hear Mae Mobley talking. :-) My Pippin is the same...she just knows all the decorations are for her to play with!

  8. Such pretty things you've purchased, Betsy! I can't wait to see your projects -- you have my curiosity up now. ;) That Mae Mobley is such a pretty cat -- love her expressions in these pictures. Life would be dull without our pets, wouldn't it?

    Enjoy the rest of your week and a lovely weekend!
