Kitchen Christmas Chalkboard Door

After a long break away from blogging, I'm refreshed and ready to roll once again.  This week I'm doing my Christmas decorating.  Click on the chalk board image for a closer view.  I love my Susan Branch calendar and can't wait to see what the 2015 calendar looks like.

This door in my kitchen leads down to the basement where I have all my Christmas goodies stashed. 
Last night I found my chalk and got to work on my door.  Chalk boards are such an inexpensive way to decorate for all the holidays.  

Last year I found some great burlap ribbon at Walmart and used it on the stairway along with some garland….

I used it on the tree as well as the old chair.  

This year we have a new tree and I'll share that with you as soon as I finish decorating it.  It's taking me longer every year to get everything decorated.  Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!


  1. Phew! I am glad that you are back! Eric's house must be finished and looking fine. Will he decorate for Christmas? (One of mine does; the other does not.)

    I could enjoy a chalkboard IF it looked like yours! Wonderful ribbon...funny, I've not seen any like that and I was looking. Going with my plain old again this year.

    Everything looks very festive, cheery and bright at your place! Welcome home, you've been missed.

  2. Merry Christmas Katherine, I love your chalkboard door. What a great idea! I'm also admiring your vignette with the old typewriter on the cast iron sewing machine stand. Great chevron ribbon, my new go to is upholstery webbing with the red stripe. I have a Susan Branch recipe for Cream Scones that is my favorite. Hugs,


Thanks for taking the time to share your sweet comments!
