I have finally found the time to spruce up my shelf in the kitchen that has been sitting bare and neglected since I took down my Christmas decorations. I know, it's terrible, but better late than never I guess. LOL
Since it's now officially springtime I wanted a display that looked cheerful and simple yet wasn't "springtime" specific.
I started by bringing back my favorite cow prints that I love so much . . . thanks again Linda!
In front of the prints I grouped together three white pitchers. The tall pitcher on the left is one of my newest thrift store finds. No matter how many white pitchers I have, I'm always thrilled to find another one. Are you the same way or am I just a little too obsessed with them?
The next item I added back in was my white rusty scale. I'm sure a lot of you may remember it; somehow my kitchen displays just don't seem finished with out including it.
I topped the scale with a pretty crocheted doily and a white chicken dish.
Next to the scale I placed a new to me pewter cream and sugar set inside a oval shaped ironstone dish. It's the perfect pairing if you ask me.
On the other side of shelf, to help balance the pewter set, I place my collection of miniature salt and pepper shakers inside another ironstone dish. This collection is a very new obsession of mine and have to say I can't get enough - - they are just so adorable.
And finally to fill out the shelf, I place a chicken wire basket filled with faux flowers on the shelf. If you missed yesterday's post I showed how to sew the fabric liner for this basket. You can check it out here.
On the hook below the shelf I added a pretty apron I found last week at the thrift store.
Not at all practical for whipping up a chocolate cake but with it's pretty lace it looks wonderful on display - - plus it adds a homey touch I think.
I also added a simple mini basket to the hooks.
I played around with different items to fill the basket but in the end I enjoyed the look of it empty best. This way all the attention is on it's shape and size which I love so much.
That's it for me today,
