I realize it's been all flowers all the time here lately, so I thought I'd show you a few pictures of my favorite kitchen things.
Here is one of a pair of old handpainted German bread plates. They were 50 cents each at one of my favorite thrift stores. How could I resist?
This old chippy painted tin is one of my favorites, with it's motif of birds, nests and eggs. The small Fenton vase was found at a rummage sale, and the green tole tray in the background was a bargain at $16.
Here is an old tole tray I found at the thrift store a while back. I tend to look for green and gold to fill my kitchen, since my cabinets are a sort of taupey -- yellowy color, and my wallpaper is a green and cream check.
And finally, this cute little yellow creamer with the orange flowers was a more recent thrift store find. It shares the mantel above my range with some turnip salt and pepper shakers, and the chipped old painted tole tray.
I hope you have enjoyed our little kitchen tour. It will probably be more flowers tomorrow!
I had such a great time reading your thoughts on gender and presidential politics yesterday. Thank you so much for sharing! Dare I hope that we will have a campaign that does not "use religion to divide us, and patriotism to bludgeon us," as Obama said last night?
