A NEW LOOK IN THE KITCHEN

 When I was shopping at "Kirkland Home" with my daughter, I fell in love with these little Italian Chefs.  So for now the Roosters are pack away and my kitchen has turned into a Italian Villa.


Don't you just love my little chef holding the wine barrel full of my utensils.  Added the "bon appetit" sign over the stove and my red tea kettle.
 He's my favorite.  Sits on my counter with one leg hanging down and holding one of his masterpieces.  


A close up of the utensil holder.  They all work in nicely with my red Christmas Decorations.

Most of my decorations are up and the house feels and smells quite festive.  My new Rod Steward Christmas CD is playing and my CD of Christmas Carols just finished.

Can I be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas!

    1. Isn't he just the cutest thing ever!! I can't believe I'm so ahead this year. I have a high shelf in the kitchen that needs a ladder to decorate so that's the only think left to do.

    1. I do like changing things up. Had my rooster and chickens for a long time....it was time for a change and since we live at Villa Ramona...why not have a Villa Kitchen. haha

  5. Hahaha!!! You are the very FIRST for me as well!!!!
    Love your chefs theme and it is so very perfect for your villa!!! I just got all of fall packed away today and my house is a mess! A BARE mess but a mess never the less!! I will start cleaning in the morning and have promised myself NOT to bring in any Christmas decorations until the house is ready!
    LOVE your decorated blog look!!! I shall do mine first thing in the morning BEFORE I start cleaning! Next year I may ask for help from my older grands! Louis Dean is not able to do as much as he used to.....as in packing things up in the attic and taking things down. But apparently he can still dig ditches!!! Go figure!

    1. When I saw them, I just imagined where each one would go, and I couldn't resist. Now I have to look for some cute dishes to match at the thrift stores.

      I know how much work you put into your seasonal decorations, especially Christmas. Don't wear yourself out...get some help. Wish I was close enough to offer.

    1. They will be watching all the baking and giving me inspiration. Can't believe December tomorrow. Since our apartment is small, it doesn't take me long to make it look festive. No tree, but lots of other goodies, including my Willow Tree Nativity.
      Hugs dear friend...and thanks for the lovely Thanksgiving card.

  10. I have always thought the Italian chef quite handsome, and entertaining too. I bet he sings as good as he cooks? Does he have a name?
