Kitchen Redone


 I showed you some treasures that I have been finding at GW (Goodwill) again.  I am so glad they finally have some neat things, it was really bad there for a while.  Anyway, with new treasures of course it means new vignettes.

This is one of my newest finds that I havn't shown you.  Isn't it wonderful.  Such gorgeous colors and huge, plus it has a rooster painted on it.  For $4.99 I think it's a bargain.



Then I showed you these great finds from last week, so I needed to play with some of them too.


Playing and changing things in my kitchen is my favorite past time.  It changes constantly.


 I just love to create vignettes any where I can.


 This is really a working vignette everyday.  The butter slab holds my cooking oils, and salt and pepper grinders.  I have the pig cutting board that I found recently behind it.  I am using this so it will soon have a wonderful patina.  Of course we all need a can opener, so mine is close by for easy use.


This corner of my kitchen changes the most.  It is a place where I can pile a ton of stuff and it is definitely the center of attention.


I recently found several bags of different kinds of faux fruit at GW , so I now have a really nice collection.  Plus I found two more silver trays and this one is really big so it is perfect as a backdrop.  I am using the bottle carrier to display a bottle of wine, my Horchow flatware and an Avignon napkin.


A sunflower just because I love them and the color is perfect with the bowl.


I always love to use a bundle of wheat, it just adds so much to any vignette.  A couple of bunches of grapes spill out onto the counter for some added color.


 I filled the crystal decanter with shell noodles and placed a faux cupcake in the cloche.


 Wonderful GW finds that look like a million dollars, but at a price that I can afford.


A view of the rest of the side counter.





 My french chef and more fruit and cheese.


 My white roosters kind of dominate this corner.  Nothing new here, just shopping the house.


This is how the kitchen looks today, you can never tell about tomorrow, it may just change again. lol

  40. Marty, thank you for coming to the party and so quickly. I appreciate it very much. Concerning the mean comment that some spoiler left, maybe she should just mind her own business and not worry about what others do in their own home or blog. Was that unkind of me? I hope not!-------- Shannon

    1. Thanks. I love it that we have a delete button so we can just delete and ignore someone that is so full of sour grapes they can't enjoy life. So sad.

  41. Beautiful vignettes Marty. I'm thinking that you live in the Phoenix area because we have the best GW stores in the country. Did you know that there are about 48 GW stores in the greater Phoenix area? Hubby and I have made a quest to get to all of them. We can do about 8 in a day before we get tired out. We mostly shop in the west side because we live in Peoria. I've been to GW Stores in many other parts of the country and they just don't compare. You find so many beautiful treasures. I really love your kitchen. Happy spring!

  42. Wow Marty, your GW has some wonderful things!!! Ours never has a thing;(:(. I have been SEARCHING for some SMALL cloches like the one you got forever, but they are never in my price range:):) Love all your new finds and how you have displayed them! XO, Pinky

  45. I think I could almost shop for you...I see things now and they remind me of your house! If I found a cloche like that at GW, I'd be doing the happy dance!!

  53. Hi Marty, I was just at that very same GW in Surprise on Saturday for the half off sale. Were you there too that day? Wouldn't that be funny if we were there at the very same time and didn't even know it?
