Christmas Kitchen 2011

Views around my kitchen this Christmas season...

My heart sings when I can bring out my hanging wreath every year!
My hand-painted vintage jello mold ornament tree is a favorite.

  2. Love your jello mold tree and admire your painting talent immensely!!

  3. Your wreath chandelier is too cool, I am sooo going to do one of those! I have never seen painted jello molds, they are really awesome, what a great collection! Your decorations are so original, I love it!

  4. now that little tree in your window is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen...I absolutely love it..Made me smile..Cheers Frances

  5. These are all so beautiful! I have a craft & recipe linky going on through tonight & would love to have you link up if you have the time!

  6. I just recently gave away two square white planters like those, that were my Mother's. I would have never thought to use them like that. If I had, I wouldn't have given them away!

  7. Hi Terry

  8. Your decorations are so unique and interesting! I love the hanging wreath!

  9. Your kitchen is sooo beautiful! The jello mold tree is out of this world...you are very talented.

  10. Featuring on Thursday at Bacon Time. Love your jello mold tree.

  11. Love your jello mold tree. So talented to have painted them all!

  12. I have that same little wire tree. I used Old World vintage ornaments on mine, but I love how you used jello molds on it. That little tree works well for so many things. Isn't it the best?

  13. OMYGOSH, and to think...I never knew that I wanted a vintage jello mold tree. This is beyond adorable...cutest thing I've ever seen. where in the world did you find so many? and, how did you make the "tree" they are hanging on? It surely is a beauty with all your painting. *sigh...drooling here.

    O and since we both like MC and black and white, I think I'd better follow you. :)
    Come by when you can.

  14. I am wondering where you got (or how you made) the tree holding the painted Jello molds (that are adorable).... it is exactly what I have been on the hunt for the last 3 years now!!!

    1. I am sorry to disappoint, but I purchased this wire tree at a garage sale years ago. I have seen it again on other blogs but never in stores or online so maybe it is a discontinued piece. If you look at this years Christmas decor on my blog, I have since spray painted the green wire tree white. I think it looks a lot better holding my hand painted vintage jello molds. I leave it up with hearts added for Valentine's day, so I can enjoy the cuteness of it all longer.


It makes me smile to hear from you!
