A Few Changes Around the Kitchen

With Spring just around the corner as I keep repeating to myself and you, it was time to shake things up on the countertops in my kitchen.  No major changes just some regrouping and moving some things around.

Kit Chg 1

This counter is on the refrigerator side of the kitchen.

Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins 2BTW I just baked these blueberry muffins.  The kitchen smells heavenly.

Cutting Boards

My collection of cutting boards found a new home in a thrift store wooden tool box kind of thing.  You are looking at the back of it, the front has a ghastly painting on it.  I’m sure the painting was just the stuff in the 80’s but definitely not my style then or now.  I may paint it with chalk paint at some point but for now I’m liking the all wood look a lot.

Shawnee Chanticleer

The Columbia scale came from an antique dealer at Scott’s Antique Market last fall.  It is just rusty and chippy enough to suit me.  I’ve had the Shawnee Rooster Chanticleer pitcher for a long time and he is holding a few silver-plate odds and ends I collected along the way.

Shamrock Bowl

When I moved the muffins the space between the cutting boards and scales looked so bare I decided to add a little St. Patrick’s Day cheer.

Shamrock bowl 2

So I popped a small boxwood ball in a shamrock bowl


and then elevated it on a thrifted wooden stand.

Tiered Kit Organization

The Pottery Barn galvanized metal tiered stand comes in handy to organize kitchen essentials.  I found it at a significant discount at the Pottery Barn outlet.  The stand sits on the counter but I couldn’t get a good photo, so I moved it to a side table.

Shabby Chic mugs

I placed three Rachael Ashwell Shabby Chic mugs in the top tier of the stand.  These mugs are part of a set of dishes I purchased on clearance at Target a couple of years ago.

Tiered Kitchen

Pecan cracker

I found the confiture covered dish at the Williams Sonoma outlet a few weeks ago but most everything else on this stand was found thrifting.

Chick S&P

These charming little chicks are my favorite salt and pepper shakers.  Found them thrifting of course.
