My new favorite corner!

A few weeks ago I bought these old canisters from an antique shop. I love their worn, creamy coloring. My kitchen is very small so I will take any extra storage I can get! This frame I purchased at a flea market in the city on Mother's Day. When I bought it, I knew that I wanted to put one of my old dishes in the middle of it...preferably an ironstone piece. For some reason, I just can't put an actual picture inside on old frame...I don't know why. Maybe it's because, to me, it takes away the beauty of the frame itself. Anyway...the little bundle of millinery I received as part of my "Sweet and Sinister" Halloween swap back in October. I am in love with how my partner combined not only the flowers but the color combination. It's "so me"!

This sign hangs over my stove.
For now, this is my new favorite corner of my kitchen, I think it's a yummy combination!!!!

Oh I love this! The colors are perfect, wish it was my kitchen. I feel the same way about a beautiful frame. The only thing I ever put in them is a mirror or a chalkboard, otherwise I display them as is.
