A New Kitchen Vignette...

 Thought I'd share another little peek at my kitchen re-decorating project!  Today, I made a simple vignette on top of the refrigerator.  I decided that instead of lots of little things, like I used to have here, I would use a few larger pieces.  I think they have more presence in the room, and offer storage, as well!   Since I am an antique dealer, sometimes it's fun to shop my own stuff!  I love this antique metal bread and cake cabinet!


Such great graphics and patina...



Chippy vintage picnic baskets provide texture and storage...


I always love a sweet piece of vintage linen ...


This covered transferware dish is one of my favorite pieces...the dark teal blue color is so pretty...



I'm enjoying the fresh look !


I'm planning to get back to some painting this week...

I am joining Savvy Southern Style's Wow Us Wednesday

Until next time...
Linda

  7. What a beautiful vignette, Linda! Those picnic baskets are perfect! And I so agree, a few large pieces always have much more impact than alot of little "stuff"! Love that neat tin bread box, and the candlestick, too!

    Storage is always a plus when decorating! I'm feeling a tad like a "hoarder"...

  11. Just lovely! The baskets are perfect with the the bread cabinet. I love vintage linens too! Lumpkin and I went to our favorite local tea room and had lunch on Saturday. I love to sit and admire the vintage linens on the tables.

  12. Looks great! We're planning on doing some painting here soon (very soon, I hope :) ) And I can't wait to re-do some of the vignettes at my house too. I like the look with the larger pieces. Thanks for more inspiration :) Laurel

  18. Looks great. I love baskets and that's a great idea to put one on top of the fridge and use for storage! My husband swears I'm going to die under an avalanche of baskets some day! Wish you lived close by so you could help me with my decorating!

  19. That looks so good Linda! I love that bread cabinet. I just took a picture of mine today, because I'm going to strip the paint off of it, hope it works out.

    Are you loving your new camera? :)

  27. Oh - bigger is better! That bread cabinet is just the crow's toes! I'm not even finished with the countertops and already I'm dreaming about what arrangements to add after it's all done - lol. Love your kitchen, great inspiration for me!

  28. Hey sweet Linda!! :) Thanks for you comment on the quilt Patty made for sweet pea, it was such a sweet blessing! (and you're right, the vintage sheets make it look modern..I love that!)
    Your new vignette looks amazing..that little bread/cake box is so unique, I have never seen one quite like it! I love old stuff..I wish I lived closer so I could "shop" your stuff too. (of course I'd probably spend WAY too much, cause you have great stuff!!) lol I'm trying to find a cute kitchen scale, so I'm on the lookout here at my local peddler mall, but so far all I have found is old plastic ones. :-/ Not exactly what I'm going for! lol
    Hope you have a wonderful, blessed week my dear friend
    Hugs

  30. Your vignette is perfect! I like the idea of the large pieces, they really make a statement. Now you've got me thinking....I have a couple of old picnic baskets and a couple of metal bread containers....my kitchen cabinet tops could use an update!
    Have a great week.

    And thank you so much for sharing on my blog...I was totally wanting to know how people came into this, whether they always created, whether it's new--I think it is fascinating to find out...don't you?

  41. Hi, Linda! Hope the kitchen is coming along. Love your spring mantel and this vignette. Hope it continues to look like Spring there for you!

  42. This is fabulous Linda and I love the old tin. I think we should have a "show us the top of your fridge" blog linky party. What do you think? It would also be a great incentive to clean the top of the refrigerator too which often gets ignored. I just did mine, only because I was painting the kitchen cabinets. :)
