Vintage In the Kitchen

I love changing things up in my kitchen and especially my little shelf. Red and yellow is my favorite color combo this year so I have been going with that theme in here this summer.


Took down some summer things but put in these pieces which still seem summery and bright. I am fighting the urge to think of fall.


Have to have some chickens. They really do like that while sitting on the nest.


The vintage Thermos' stay as they say back to school to me.


I am sharing this with Cozy Little House for Tweak It Tuesday.

Your refreshed kitchen is so cute! I love the vintage thermoses on display. I do the same thing in my kitchen, the combination of textures and patterns is so appealing ;)

Very nice! It's hard not to push the Fall decorating with the slight chill in the air we are experiencing. Great chicken lamp!

Hi there Elaine,

I love the way you decorate :) Yellow and red colours joined together are so bright and cheery! And those chickens look so cute sitting on those little stools...

Teresa said...

You named your blog right, 'sunny' and cheerful is what I associate with your home and your kitchen is always so cozy and fun.

Hi Elaine--
as always, I love to see your shelf re-do.
It's like walking past the windows in down-town Dallas, when I was kid.
You never knew what the display at Sanger Harris was going to be...but you knew it would be special.
;)

of course I love the chickens, Pat

What a lovely kitchen. Ya'll are soooo creative. My house pretty much stays the same, except at Christmas. :-) I do like the chickens and the cannisters. Those thermoses take me back to school days (chocolate milk) and my Dad carrying his black lunch box every day with a big thermos of coffee.

Sandra said...

Your kitchen is always so lovely and the thermos collection on the shelf is wonderful. I really like the rolling pin though and like how you've displayed it.

I have the rolling pin that belonged to my great-grandmother. It's handmade from one piece of wood. I've never found a great way to display it since I use it as well.

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

Oh what a happy memory! My Grandma had the yellow flowered canisters and a cake carrier to match!

Michelle said...

I love the red and yellow together. I am also fighting the urge to change my kitchen to fall.

Your thermoses are adorable. I always love your pops of color. BTW, I think I have that same chicken hanging around here somewhere.

Just now getting over here. Red and yellow has always been one of my fav color combos since childhood. How could anything be more cheerful?
