I worked on a couple of displays today.
First, I did a little tweaking in the great room. I removed the Sweet Annie from the pitcher on top of the book case. (See header photo.) I like the simpler look better.
I wanted to do something different, and simple, on my coffee table. I remembered seeing a wooden bowl with dried orange slices on someone’s blog (sorry I don’t remember where I saw it). So I thought I would give it a try. My coffee table is a black leather-covered trunk. I placed an old coverlet scrap under a wooden bowl and then put some dried orange slices in the bowl. I liked it, but it seemed to need a little something else. I added a few dried oranges that I bought last year and it turned out just the way I wanted. I think I will keep it this way for a while.
Next, I worked on a couple of displays in the kitchen. I did a little tweaking on my stove board, using a cutting board to cover the clock.
I moved the cubby bin and pitcher of spoons from the counter to my dry sink “island”. Then I added a couple of butter paddles and a wooden butter mold. The old jars were a gift from my sister.
The reason I moved the items from the kitchen counter is that my hubby got me a Keurig coffee pot, so I needed the space. I’ve asked him to build a cover for it – hopefully that will happen soon. I will post a picture when he gets it done.I am still working on a display for the wash stand in the hall bathroom – I just haven’t found the look I want yet. I would also like to do something different in our master bedroom - I’m still waiting for inspiration there too. But the fun of decorating is tweaking, isn’t it?
I hope you are all having a blessed week,
