    Love all of your ribbon candy in snow decor! But honestly the part that blew my mind was the peppermint fragrant Epsom salts for snow in the dish!! Love!!! And I have that same ‘Antique’ sign:)

      I love that sign! Total impulse buy at Joann’s one day:) Glad you enjoyed the tour!

      Thank you, Paula!

    Thanks for the tour, I love your kitchen and all the rest of your home and yard. I love how you decorate your home and all the Christmas’s you’ve spent in it making wonderful memories. I tried to sell my home just before I retired and nothing happened for 2 yrs., then one day when one of my grandchildren came over he went to the room and stood at the door, as if remembering all the times he spent here and I knew why God didn’t let me sell it. Have a wonderful Merry Christmas!

      I love this story, Marlene; thanks for sharing! That is an encouragement; memories are important:)

  3. Love it all, Lora, especially those little wooden molding Christmas trees. Have a Merry, merry Christmas!

      Just picked those up at a local vintage shop; so simple!I told hubs this is why he can’t burn any scraps of chippy wood.

  4. I always enjoy your decorating style, and it occurred to me as I was viewing your Christmas displays that you might be able to answer a styling question for me. I keep seeing vintage jadeite glass that was part of an electric stand mixer juicer attachment, but I can’t figure out how to display this bowl-shaped piece of glass that has two holes in it. Any ideas?

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. Thank you for sharing your creativity throughout the year 🙂

      I can’t imagine what it looks like, but sounds like it would be cute with a couple plants sticking out. Maybe even a little bird in some moss for the spring, sticking his head out the hole?

      1. Thanks Lora! I knew that you’d be the one to have an answer for me. I wanted to upload a picture, but can’t find a place to do it in the comment area.

          If you’re an insider, you can just reply to one of the emails I send out and attach it?

    I love it all! Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas and inspiration! Sandra

      I appreciate that, Sandra!

  6. Loved this tour and all of your fun treasures. Your scales, the skis, the rolling pins, the trees and ornaments – everything! And the colors are so adorably different than the traditional colors. I could be quite happy working in this kitchen. Just how long does it take you to decorate one room anyway? There are so many beautiful things to put out and they are displayed so perfectly that I can imagine it takes days. :0 Hope your season is going well. Merry Christmas friend!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Is that a quantitative question? 😉 😉 Days, yes… but parts of days(and I enjoy every minute). And I can’t stop until the vision in my head comes to life! Probably why this tour isn’t being seen until today:) But the presents are wrapped and most of the cookies are baked…still need one more grocery trip! Merry Christmas, friend!
