I love adding red accents to my kitchen, especially when they are cute vintage treasures either found while browsing the thrift shops and yard sale or gifted from a friend or family member.
This cute little tray was originally "picked" by my friend Barb. Isn't it adorable? Each time I saw it at her house, I complimented her on how much I liked it.
One day, she arrived early for a party I was hosting and surprised me with the tray. I was so thrilled, that I immediately found a spot for it on my kitchen table...it's been there ever since. I just switch out the items I place on it according to the seasons or just based on my mood at the time!
Lemons and strawberries are wonderful summer flavors.
We know that summer is it's way when the local churches
start selling their strawberry pies
and lemon cakes start filling the bakery cases
at the markets.
Lemon is one of my favorite summer time flavors!
Since I've been eating a lot of Lemon Fettuccine with Carrots,
we picked up a 2 lb bag of lemons when they were on sale last week.
Don't they look refreshing in this vintage mixing bowl?
Berries topped with yogurt is the perfect light summertime breakfast.
Light and refreshing...healthy, too!
Recently, I picked up four of these milk glass chowder bowls.
They've since been my favorite for snack time!
Since we live in a small house,
I try to limit my vintage collections to items to items
that can be used around the house.
This glass juice reamer has gotten a lot of use
the past few weeks!
Occasionally, I do purchase items that are not vintage or second hand.
The sweet little tea towel, was a Target find...
gotta love the Dollar Spot!
I'm showing off my vintage treasures at the following blog carnivals and linky parties:
