I had a blank slate on this counter after I put Christmas away......a new start for a new year!
I'm staying with the farmhouse look in the kitchen and it appears that I'm hanging on to Christmas too. I may keep the trees up thru Easter, would be fun to decorate them with bunnies don't you think!
I had this sweet pink tractor in the Christmas wreath on the front door, and it found a home on the kitchen counter in my winter vignette. It snowed a little bit yesterday....just a dusting really So I added some fluffy snow to my vignette.
The centerpiece of my vignette is a section of vintage sewing machine drawers.
I moved the metal barns away so you could see it better.
Now ......my buildings are back in place.
These metal houses are made to hold a tea light candles, but in my mind, I see them as sheep and hay barns.
Moving across the counter......
I have a sheep and goat standing in some snow......
I placed a nest and baby chick in each of the two bottom sewing drawers I used the top drawer to display some of my favorite dishes.
You saw one of the set of three metal buckets on the other end. I thought these were so sweet.....new spring stock at Hobby Lobby. I filled my buckets with a bouquet of white roses and winter greenery.
When I was straightening the upper cabinets, it occurred to me that I haven't shown you the inside in a while.
This was a project that H and I did the first part of 2015.
We stapled fabric to the inside of the doors, and made little pockets with vintage doilies.
This is a great way to showcase vintage hot pads.
It was a lot of work to do the entire kitchen, but well worth it.
Well, it's time for my nap. Wish I could shake this cold!
