Great Grapes

Time to show off my finally decorated kitchen.  (Thank you, sweet friend!)

The grape cluster above my breakfast bar.

On my entry wall, as you come in.

(I know it’s a little bit egotistical to have a photo of myself on my own fridge, but, hey, if I don’t love myself, who will?)  I cross stitched the pansy one, way back in the day.

 

Don’t I have a pretty kitchen?  Notice I didn’t show you the counters or anything. WE ain’t going there today!  Just enjoy looking at the grape pretties!

Wish I had purple pots! and a purple microwave, and coffee pot, and toaster, and dish drainer, and knives, and cabinets, and floor, and stove, and refridge!  Well, I do wish it! I know it would be too much for you, but I’d adore it!  So, if you see any of these items, send them to me, pleeeaasse.

I woke up, and BAM! I’m having a purple Christmas!

 


Now, to show you the REST of my Purple Christmas story.

You’re already seen my Joy,  and my Star,

 Just happens to be my middle name.  (Could that be why I love it???)

Just happens to be my middle name. (Could that be why I love it???)

I'm a star!

I’m a star!

And my Nativity.  

 

And my window lights.

Sparkly! Purple!

Sparkly! Purple!

Now, feast your eyes on my Purple Tree!

(Sorry the pic is so dark.  I need to improve my photography skills. )

Here is my big tree:

It blinks on, one section at a time. I don’t like that, but since it was a loaner tree, I didn’t fuss!  And not really even a big tree, since it’s only 4 ‘ 1/2″ tall!

I’m in love with the purple poinsettia as the tree topper.

And the 1 purple Christmas card I received:

I guess the other 2 card senders didn’t receive the purple memo!

And my Shiny Grape Wreath!  It’s on the back of the closet door, in the kitchen/entry hall.

I made it myself!

I made it myself!

(Did you notice I used the grape clusters to cover up the gap in the purple tinsel? Oh, you didn’t? Oopsie! Should have kept my big mouth shut!)

And the random Purple Ornaments, stuck to the walls.

And there you have it, my purple Christmas.

Sure hope I get some purple presents!

Update: I did! 2 in fact. Yay!
