Kitchen Finds






Decided to move things around in the kitchen.
I found these two "new" vintage alabaster lamps
and had the oil painting re-framed.
(The original frame fell and broke to pieces one day.)








Three new little pots of baby tears
came home with me last week so I needed
 to find a spot for them as well.

















Don't forget....
June 1st is this Friday
and this month's 
Favorites on the First's
theme will be to

So start snapping photos 
of your favorite garden spots.
Can be yours or one that inspires you.
Old or new posts welcome of course!

SOOOO pretty! Your silver pieces are beautiful. Unfortunately, I gave away almost all of my silver years ago. Regret that decision sometimes when I see your beautiful pieces.XO, Pinky

I love Baby's Tears, and they look charming in your little silver pots.
And I absolutely ADORE the silver riding boots. What a great find.

I love all your silver pieces, Alison! I'm headed to Lowe's tomorrow for some plants, so I think I'll be looking for some of those Baby's Tears.

I love your collections...
And how shiny your
silver is! Mine is always
in need of a good polish : )

I may get to JB the first day,
this year. My hubby and I
leave that Saturday for a bike
trip in Napa and imagine I will
be crazy-busy with packing
on Friday. Hope to see you!

Alison, and I thought you were just outside in the garden. Isn't it fun to "play" with new things. Love the new lamps and the fabulous silver pieces. I spy your new little pair of silver riding boots looking perfectly at home in the Polohouse. My garden is ready for Friday's party and posted a little teaser tablescape. See you on the 1st. ~ Sarah

Alison,
I love the alabaster lamps and the hotel silver coffee pot. What a beautiful painting...the new frame is perfect. How nice to have a kitchen large enough to have room for a side piece and the chairs.

Simply divine! I see lots of alabaster lamps, but usually not as a matching pair. Love alabaster! I had to give the "last rights" to some baby tears, years ago and vowed never again! They're so pretty while they're still alive! :)

So many beautiful things you have! You really got the touch.

I'm glad I found your lovely blog today. :o)

Wishing you a wonderful day!
