Holiday Home Tour....the Kitchen

Dearest Readers,

Welcome back to Honey Hill Farm...won't you make yourself at home in our warm, cozy kitchen...where the scent of pine, orange and cloves fills the air and reminds us that Christmastide is here.

This coziest of places, beckons us to spend days baking and sipping hot cups of cocoa while the snowflakes fall....eventide is upon us and the candles are lit, casting a delightful glow.

Pine boughs are tucked into corners and slipped behind pictures, lending a holiday feel to everyday necessities...

It doesn't take much to make the kitchen the most festive room in the house....

As quick as a wink, your kitchen brims with gingerbread men, wonderful fudge, cookies and candy.....lovely gifts from the heart. 

 So Dear Reader, I hope you will take the time to enjoy your day, tucking yourself inside your kitchen, lingering over the aroma of fresh baked goodies.....sipping your coffee ever-so-slowly.  The best part of the Christmastide season is the everyday gentle living.

It is my most sincere desire that you have had a splendid time here at Honey Hill Farm.  I will be away for a few days, but I will extend an invitation to visit me next week.....we can spend some time in our back parlour. 

Yours so very kindredly,
