Welcome back to my Merry Christmas Home Tour. Today, I'm sharing the Christmas cheer around my kitchen and entryway...
The little drop-off station in the kitchen by the back doors: I just added a little holly to the shelf. For me, it's the little things.

more real holly, tartan ribbon, pinecones, and cinnamon sticks
updated chalkboard art
*Speaking of chalkboard art, leave me some feedback in the comment section about chalk pens. I've only ever used regular white chalk and I'm curious about the pens. Clean up? Real chalk look?
This year, I got a smaller tree for the entryway and used some Quikrete to cement the base of the tree in an old planter. I like the way it turned out, but it sure is heavy!! :) I also added some big bulbed colored lights for a little pop.
After several years of trying to find the identity of our oddly shaped entryway, we've finally found ways to make it useful. Now, it's one of the most occupied places in our home. Our girls eat meals and have school at the table and it's just off of the kitchen which make it easy and useful!
Our nativity sits on the shelf by the front door. We were given this special nativity as a wedding gift.
The girls love having the tree right next to their table during meals and school! I do, too!
The home tour continues tomorrow! See you then!
*don't forget to leave me that feedback on the chalk pens!
