  1. How lovely! I really should decorate with music somewhere next year, since I am a piano teacher! You would think that I would’ve thought of that by now…. Thank you for sharing at Best of the Weekend– I am featuring you tomorrow.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You should definitely decorate with music, Liberty! You can have so much fun using a certain song as your theme. Thanks for the feature!

    Your kitchen is so beautiful and I love the use of the Nativity and churches! I only pulled a few boxes out this year and I don’t have any of my nativities on display. I just have a few. One I bought in Prague, which is where my family heritage is from and I love it! Merry Christmas,

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      A Nativity from Prague sounds wonderful, Jann; especially if it has family roots! Every year I’ve got things that don’t make it out; probably because I’ve got quite the variety to choose from!

  3. Lora it is all so wonderfully creative! Your display of the the nativity is awesome and green is my favorite color too, so I love all the use of green. Your cabinets are packed full of beautiful treasures of the season mixed with your vintage finds. I certainly want to come back and see more of your before kitchen and your upcoming posts this week!

    Thank you so much for joining this hop, and openly sharing your faith too! Have yourself a “merry musical” Christmas!

      Thanks, Emily! It will be a festive place to bake up some Christmas cookies this week!

  9. Lora,
    Your kitchen cabinets decorated for Christmas look so pretty. Your green glasses are great for Christmas.

    Merry Christmas,

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Those green glasses are pretty fun to bring out this time of year, Judith! Sometimes I combine them with red ones, but this year I was all about fresh and crisp in the cupboards.

  10. Your kitchen is so gorgeous, Lora! I love all the vignettes you’ve created and all the pops of greenery too. Your plates and plate rack are all really pretty. Everything feels really charming and lovely. I hope you and your family have a blessed holiday season, hugs, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, CoCo! I think my kitchen is definitely my favorite room in the house (probably where we’ve spent the most re-hab $, too!). Fun to sit with my laptop and work with all the prettiness around!

      I love adding festiveness everywhere this time of year, Shannon. But once the holidays are over, I’ll be ready for a little more “quietness” with the decor. I love change in my home!

  12. Your kitchen looks so beautiful, Christmas-y, and welcoming. How special you’ve kept your family’s treasured things. You have honored them.

  13. Oh You have a beautiful kitchen, Lora! And all dressed up for Christmas it is wonderful. The sideboard cabinet is a fabulous piece, and you have it styled perfectly. What a wonderful gathering place for friends and family!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Linda! I’m looking forward to my daughter coming home from her finals and getting to enjoy all the festiveness! I remember feeling like I was kinda missing out on the season during those college years. Hopefully can whip up some cookies in the kitchen this week, along with some of her favorite meals!

  14. Your hutch is absolutely stunning! I adore all of the green accents. Your home has truly put a song in my heart.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura; I’m so glad! I designed the cupboards to look like a vintage built-in hutch, and I just love decorating the glass front cupboards seasonally!

  15. This is just precious. I love that china. What a treasure. The pops of green in your cabinet are so pretty.

      Thanks, Katie! It’s nice to have the green glasses handy to use at a moment’s notice!
