Contemplating Christmas in July

I own this Gooseberry Patch book and love it.  Lots of great ideas here!
I know... I know... it's still only June (and isn't that a good thing?).  Why would I be contemplating Christmas in July?  Well, for the past couple of years I have posted every day (or nearly so) in July here on my Christmas blog.  This year, I sort of thought I wouldn't do it.  My eldercare responsibilities have increased greatly in the past month, and I'm not finding a lot of time to blog.

But recently, I've begun to think Christmas in July might be a possibility here in my Christmas kitchen after all.  I've found a few lovely Christmas poems and some intriguing recipes, plus a vintage Christmas find or two, and now I'm thinking ... it just might work.  Stay tuned!


  1. I'm right with you! I went into this year thinking I would not post Christmas in July, but the past few days I've been giving a lot of thought to it and even started making a schedule of posts. Guess that means I'm gonna do it! I hope you do too!

  2. Oh I love your Christmas in July postings! Looking forward to them, thanks for taking the time when you are so busy.

    I love your Christmas in July posts too! I know you are a busy lady so even if you can't post everyday I'm sure I (and everyone else) will enjoy whatever you can do.


  4. Thanks, ladies, for stopping by my Christmas kitchen to offer your encouragement!!

    Vicki -- so neat that you also had thought you wouldn't post Christmas in July -- and now find yourself planning posts to do so. We can encourage one another!

    Pinksparkle -- always nice to see you here on my blogs. I'm so glad you've enjoyed the Christmas in July postings in the past. This year's will be simpler, and may not be every day, but I'll do what I can.

    Les -- always love hearing from you. You're an encouragement and inspiration to me in many ways, but especially craftwise. Thanks for stopping in to offer your thoughts. I'm giving it a lot of thought and have already written and scheduled a couple of posts, so I guess I'm in, even if it may have to be on a limited basis.

    Thanks again, all of you! Hope you enjoy the posts I'm coming up with.


Thanks for visiting my Christmas kitchen! I love company here in my kitchen all year round, so please leave a comment so I'll know you visited. I will answer any questions and comments here on the blog, so be sure and check "notify me" to see replies. God bless your day!
