There is a very early red and green sampler in my kitchen window for the month of December. It is the work of Mary Freeman and is dated 1824.
For the moment, candles are lighting the window. I have no doubt my daughter will be lobbying for twinkly white lights when evening falls. I'll most likely add a small strand.
I've planted some old baskets with paperwhites and they are just beginning to shoot up.
Two small cypress trees flank the sampler. The white candles nestle among the fresh extra limbs from our tree.
More paperwhites sprouting.
A very old red and green toleware canister wears the colors of the season.
Peeking out the window more red and green and another early sampler. Bits of Christmas coming soon.
We are looking forward to the wonderful aroma that will fill our kitchen when all the paperwhites bloom. I'll click another pic and share it with you when it happens.
Red...and greens...and baskets of bulbs, handwork from so long ago...these are my favorites that grace my December kitchen window.
I have enjoyed sharing my kitchen windows with all of you over the last several years. Alas, this will be the last monthly window. Time for something new!
Hope you all are enjoying these magic days!
Enjoy the day,
