Soft Cottage Collected Display at my Kitchen Window

Hello and welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
Again, it has been longer since I have checked in and posted.
I had every intention, and then several (good) things have kept me busy.
The 2016 Tennis season has started and so has the 2016 Garden!
But I have the majority of the clean up finished and 
I am ready to share some pretty new things with you readers!
 Today we are taking a peek at what is around my kitchen window.
I love cottage style and putting little vignettes together.
Nothing too valuable or expensive... just cute little goodies I enjoy.
 For the Spring look in my kitchen this season I kept it very neutral.
 I added one of my handmade paper roses with a clothes pin to the little tin cup of ivy.
I keep sweet smelling soaps in the little pump... also changed out with the seasons.
This little tin is a special find, I love the type and patina.
Sweet and simple.
Little touches of color.
This was a new find for less than a dollar.
How?  It has an ugly graphic on the back!
Funny thing is... you can see it from the porch... 
Soft and neutral... with a bit of Spring but could be left up all year.
I still really like the topper I made last summer.
I added the sweet little hanging crystals.
I think in another life I must have been a gypsy... I love my bling and hanging crystals.
They leave dancing light all over the kitchen on sunny days.
Here is a close up of my little repurposed shade.
I made the little cord with fishing line and plastic beads 
and then added the larger pink glass crystals.
It is a sweet little touch over my sink, but it almost disappears in photos.
See, you could almost miss it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for following.
Have a great week and come back soon....Brooke

  10. A very pretty window display! Love all those little crystals on the valance and the sweet chandelier. I have a Swan's Down measuring cup from my great aunt's farmhouse :) When I posted about it, another blogger told me that her grandmother (or maybe great-grandmother, can't remember) was the "Swan's Down Cake Girl" for Canada.

  11. It been years and years since I've seen a Swan Down cake pan and your wonderful vignette brought back happy memories.

    Thank you so much for sharing this lovely post at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Wishing you and yours a glorious Easter.
