Oh I love all your plaid thermos's...looks like they are ready to take out hot coffee or cocoa while your working in the yard.


I am loving the plaid!! I am keeping mine around for a while definitely. Love your kitchen and the colors are just wonderful!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

Everything looks so pretty, Andrea! I don't find that you look desperate to hold onto Christmas at all ~ plaid is such a great "warm" feeling pattern. Reading your post has me eager now to get my Christmas decor put away, but I'm a stickler for waiting until January 6th. Although I may just get the boxes down from the attic and ready!

Pat@Back Porch Musings

Your shelves look beautiful. I used to root ivy etc. I should do that again.

Happy New Year!


Love all the red and plaid. Very cute. I would keep it out, too.


I love your kitchen and your shelves! You make everything look so wonderful!
Be a sweetie,

We just tonight started taking down Christmas. We did our downstairs first. I LOVE all your red and black and white! That wreath is beautiful too! Found you from Wow us Wed. XO, Pinky

Brenda Kula-Pruitt

I know what you mean by lack of a pantry. Got to find places here and there for stuff. You know I love that kitchen of yours!

I just found your blog! I love your home and your style! It is so beautiful...the love just shines thru! Happy New Year Andrea! Angie xo


Hello! So fun stopping by and seeing all of the beautiful vignettes. I just love the red accents in your sweet cottage home :) The red, black and white are striking and add warmth and coziness.

Kindly, Lorraine

Susan @ My Place to Yours

We had a plaid thermos just like yours when I was growing up. Wonder where that thing went... Your red and black combo is lovely! Happy New Year to you and yours!

Lynn at Cottage and Creek

Your kitchen looks like a very happy place. I love your red and black and kitschy plaids. Very fun! I still have some of my bottle brush trees out, but Christmas is all put away. Still waiting for snow ...
Happy New Year!

Thanks for sharing!

I love the combination of red, black, and white. Your kitchen looks so cheerful in the dreary winter light.

I love your colors, your style. It is all SO charming. LOVe it, love it love it. Oh forget about coming to visit....can I move in. (Big smile)

I am a brand new blogger of only seven weeks and am having the time of my life finding such delightful blogs like yours. I have become your newest follower. Looking forward to seeing many more fabulous posts from you. They are not only a delight to the eye but a warmth to the heart.

Best Wishes,



Oh heavens...your kitchen is so sweet! I LOVE every little thing about it...I'm your newest follower!

Melody Willoughby

Red is my favorite color too especially for my kitchen. Love all your stuff. I am having trouble putting away my Christmas too. Take care.


Oh my, your cabients are amazing. Plus I of course love, love, love all the red (my favorite color).

Zahide Mercedes/Diddie

Love the shelf with the chicken wire and the chippiness! The red, one of my favs.

Have a great New Year.

New follower....

Mary @ Sea Quilts

Love the bird plates, love the home. Thanks for linking up so I could find you ... and follow you.



The very first thing I noticed is your cabinets! They are gorgeous. The shelves and the black, white and red look so pretty and fresh!

Thank you for linking this lovely post to Potpourri Friday!


I so love your little shabby French kitchen. I thought that I was already a follower but I guess not. Anyway I am now. :)

Happy New Year!



Love your red plaid thermos and cooler collection. I blogged this week about red plaid. In 2012 I'm going to be on the lookout for some things like you have on display for my own home.


Love your red plaid thermoses. I had the lunch box to match back in elementary school (many years ago!) Luckily I saved it and have it displayed in my kitchen too. Your vignettes are beautiful...love your style.

Fabiola Alba

Beautiful! Your vignettes are great, I love the red plates and all you did. You have such a warm and inviting style to you. I have a giveaway for my year of blogging and would love you to enter. Just visit me and comment on it, that's all! I'm at Seasonal Sunday. Hugs,

The Tablescaper

I love your rustic winter vignette! It's perfect (not too Christmas at all). Love all of the plaid!

Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays. Your tea pot in your header would fit into my post perfectly.

LOVE the kitchen decor!!! I think you totally pulled off rustic winter vignette. ;)

Denise @ Forest Manor

Hi Andrea,

I think this must be the year for plaid. I'm seeing it everywhere in the stores and in blogland. I love your plaid thermos! I did a plaid tablescape for Christmas this year, and had such fun putting it together.

I really love your kitchen! It's just charming and looks like a great place to cook in or just be in. Happy 2012 to you! Visiting from Seasonal Sundays.

Cathy Farquhar

Oh Yes! Red and black is a must. You did a great job of combining plaids and rustic. Yes our weather is kind of weird, I am close to Dallas also.


Love, love, love how you styled your shelves, but your whole kitchen is just beautiful!

Debbie@Mountain Breaths

I love your plaids, and wish I kept mine. I have a habit of getting rid of the old when I bring in the new!


Very nice color cordination with the red and black and plaid. And love your shelving unit. Very pretty. Pat


I LOVE IT! You did such an amazing job decorating your shelves...these are my favorite shelves...IN FACT...you have motivated me! I have an area where I could put up some shelves....I CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT. THE red and black is wonderful too! Awwww...I just love ideas and all the fun one blog...like yours can bring! Have a blessed week.

All of your displays look absolutely beautiful! I love those plates especially! Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog! I would love it if you could join in our "impossible challenge" tomorrow.


I love your kitchen! I also love the color of red and black and love the way it pops against your wall and cabinets. Love, love, love color. I also like white rooms but I have to say it's good to see some color too. I also love the look of a little table lamp in the kitchen.
