I moved to a larger office building this past weekend.
If you looked up the word “Exhausted” in the dictionary,
I’m pretty sure you would see a picture of me as
reference. Glad that is done.
I stopped by a second-hand store to pick up a few
extra file cabinets. I didn’t get any cabinets, but I found
two items which I heart!
The first is this metal pitcher for $1.
I am beginning to realize I have a fetish for pitchers. 🙂
I had in mind the perfect addition for this find.
Our whole yard smells sweet and fragrant as soon as
you step out the door.
Here is a closer shot so you can get a good whiff…
Doesn’t that smell fabulous!!
I also cut some wild grapevine which is growing like
crazy around our property right now.
Doesn’t it go beautifully with the honeysuckle?
I love the wild look of this arrangement.
“Arrangement” is such a loose term, since there really
wasn’t anything involved but clipping and gathering.
The second find was this basket for $4!
Can I just say it was LOVE at first site.
Look at its beautiful patina.
I was going to oil it down but decided against it.
But it did need a good cleaning.
Otherwise, I knew where this beauty was also going.
A cookbook holder!
I own far too many cookbooks, but I like to keep a
few of my faves on display.
I have to laugh at this pic. The placement of the cookbooks
was totally unplanned, but I giggled when I was
downloading these pics.
Notice how my “Low-Carb” cookbook is right next to
Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.”
Somehow I doubt that JC had these two books together
on her shelf, don’t you? 🙂
I placed one of my vintage kitchen scales in front with white
and brown-speckled farm eggs.
This is a favorite scales from my collection, and the eggs just seemed to go with the Farmhouse basket.
Even as tired as I was from moving a huge office, these simple
and inexpensive pieces inspired me to come home and
make a few simple changes in my kitchen.
Remember just a few months ago it was red, yellow and sage?
Here it is with newly painted white cabinets and khaki walls.
and the best part…
…it smells HEAVENLY!
Hope you have a wonderful week!
I will reveal my ENTIRE kitchen next Monday. 🙂
