Kitchen Vignettes

Bits of change, moving pieces around, adding a bit. 
I like making vignettes, pulling new groupings together, 
adding a new find, changing patterns.
 A painting serving as a background for the cast iron birds. Weary clock grouping.
 Tarnished silverplate mixed with small corals.
 Different arrangements of collectibles.
 This globe and spools are on top of the first hutch we painted. 
It has been an ongoing great place for displays and vignettes. 
The painting was joined by vintage postcards in a large sugar bowl.
Spider plant (large) is a grade 3 babysitting for the summer visitor. DG's Teacher has the children grow new spider plants to take home and during the summer she has the students volunteer/take her 'parent plants' home. The students return to the same teacher in September for the first week of school and bring back the plants ready for the next class to take over. Nice transition.
This is on top of the very vintage hutch that DH rebuilt and painted. 
Collectibles, memories, gifts and thrifted all mixed together.
