Hi everyone! I finally had a chance to take a few photos of my winter kitchen window decorations and just had to share.
I’ve had this in my mind for a while now.
It’s right above the sink, and it definitely makes washing dishes lots more fun!
Especially these sweet little deer.
Really makes me feel peaceful.
Best of all, these were super easy to make. I just added salt — for the snow! — to some recycled jars, popped in the candles, and arranged them along with the trees. I purchased a HUGE bag of sea salt at the Asian grocery store down the street for only $2 — it’s from Korea, maybe more making kimchi? But any kind of coarse salt will do. I’ve also heard of using epson salt for this. And! I found some peppermint vanilla candles at the grocery store — they smell so good.
And the very best thing of all? Remembering where the jars came from! The one on the right held Nutella that my friend Julie sent me from the UK. I just love Nutella. Yum.
The tall canning jar is from some homemade apple butter from Aunt Marilyn in Ohio — she has a big fall family get-together and makes it in a old antique copper kettle. Everyone takes turns stirring. Someday I hope J and I can go!
The other jars are from some of my favorite jams that J and I have picked up. Oh yeah.
