My kitchen window...

Red...red...red...this year I decorated my kitchen window using vintage and antique ornaments.

The more "loved" an ornament is the better I like it. 

The old Santa heads are German.

The old flocked Shiny Brites take me back to my childhood. I'm really enjoying this little bit of nostalgia as I do my daily kitchen routine!

Angela Hillstrom's cardinal...he can look out the window and see the real cardinals at the feeder.

My view...

No matter what the season, this photo is always in my window. Taken years ago, on a visit to Williamsburg, in front of a white house with a black roof...just like our little house.

Hope you enjoyed the view as much as I do every day.

Enjoy the day,
