The Beauty Of Fruit



I love to decorate with faux fruit and every time I find another bag at GW, I get all inspired and have to start playing again.























 Fruit always looks so bright and cheery and just makes a kitchen come to life I think.


 I am trying to fill this apothecary jar with corks, since I think they look fabulous in a kitchen too.  I think I need to drink more wine, I have a ton of space in this jar, but I just can't seem to find wine at the GW.

I am linking to the following party:

Inspiration Friday @ At The Picket Fence
Feathered Nest Friday @ French Country Cottage
Friday's Unfolded @ Stuff and Nonsense

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always look forward to your visits.

  1. Marty, Your fruit looks so much better than what I remember my Mom having! Love the green apples in the jar on top of the scale.

  7. Is this the real old, real wax fruit or the new Plastic wax fruit??? I have a large basket of the real old hand made wax fruit and it is $2.00 each piece if you want some. Thanks for sharing, it is always fun to visit your house. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  8. I have some apples and oranges that friends keep trying to eat. I guess that's a sign that they look real at least.

  9. The fruit looks real. It really adds a new dimension. If you need any wine corks I can send you a few. Pretty!

  10. Wish I'd known. Last week I sent a sack of fruit to the consignment shop to sell along with some furniture and knick-knacks. You know, I tried to do the Rivit thing, and I never could figure it out once I got accepted...

  11. Great job on the vignette. Faux fruit and veggies look much more real now days and many cases hard to tell the difference from a distance . I started collecting corks a while back - gave up. To slow going. :D
    Enjoy your evening.

  16. Love your new fruit. For corks, go to a favorite restaurant that serves wine and ask that they save you some. They may do it. Or if there is a charity event wine tasting that you attend, ask for corks while you're there. Corks are fun to decorate with!

  21. You find the most wonderful things at GW in your area!! I love corks too but am not a wine drinker. Wally World had a nice collection of corks for filling jars and they were very reasonable. My kitchen aspires to look half as nice as yours!

  22. Marty, I love, love, love the silver tray and the butter tray - they are so awesome! Love the vignettes! Can you not get corks @ Hobby Lobby? Someone told me you could, but I haven't looked.
