Hi there my dears...
It's one of those days...
Those "I have to do something.." day.
Nervous energy... Winter Humm-Drumms?
Okay, this is normal for me...
But I am fiddling again with the kitchen.
Taking down Christmas is always a bit rough.
Everything is out of whack.
A little off... or plain. Or something.
I am the queen of collecting "smalls".
Little trinkets of vintage goodness...
But even for me, this is a bit much.
It is a throw everything up there and it will look interesting moments.
I love the pottery, but it is a bit.... much.
So here is my after... Look----Symmetry!!
Wow, that is a good thing folks.
I have to admit, this was kind of an accident.
I drug these antique oil and gas cans up from the basement to post on a site to sell today.
And then I took a good look at them and decided they were keepers.
Well for a bit longer...
But I love the way they add more metal to the wide view into the kitchen.
I have quite the collection going friends...
But that is part of the fun...
I try to switch things out and not have everything "good" kept in boxes.
Not that I have much invested... most of this is yard sale loot.
This is a reproduction, but still so sweet.
I kind of have a stitched signs theme going as well.
But I love them... and may make a few this winter.... It's on my to-do list.
Almost all of these metal goodies use to be on the front porch with it was more country themed.
I brought them inside so they were not damaged by more rust.
Now I have plants in some, but most are just display.
This water jug is probably my favorite.
Yes, I still have a tree up... but it is just country stuff.
I love the soft white lights in the wintertime... who am I kidding.. All YEAR!
And of course... it sets in another metal tub... with burlap!
All this vignette is on my old buggy seat...
I will pull it out one days and show you the decal on the back.
It is wonderful.
But a toe breaker... many a fit from my husband when he hits it in the dark.
It sticks out... but I love it.
This is my too bright kitchen light.
When they are all on it is blinding.
I have many ideas on what to replace it with.
Trying to sell my husband on a rusty vintage shade I found a few years ago.
He has not gave in yet... ;)
And finally, my old highchair.
No, my kids did not use it, nor was it mine as a child.
My kids had an ugly plastic one.
But I saw this unloaded at a thrift show and traded some of my jewelry for it.
I love it... and it mostly holds plants...
but someday... in the very...very...very distant future....
One last thing... a reader wanted to see the clock close up... it is so cute.
Do you even remember what we started out talking about?
Oh yeah... I hope you like my gas cans in the kitchen...
I will show your comments about how you love it to my husband...
As he looks at me like... "You think those are PRETTY?"
Yes, yes I do...
Love to all....Brooke
