small kitchen updates

A couple of small kitchen updates that have made a big impact on me loving this space.   I found this sterling silver champagne bucket at a thrift store, and knew I wanted to use it to hold serving spoons, etc.  kitchen For mother’s day JB gave me these Aerin plates.  Our everyday plates that were on our registry when we married are great, but they have fish on them.  I’d rather save them for fish fry’s!   The blue ones are sold out but the all white are not.  

all of the bud vases are from thrift stores.  Four of them are actually salt and pepper shakers but I took the tops off.  We use this diffuser.  My favorite morning time essential oils to diffuse are lime and orange.  For witching hour – Stress Away it is (:

I switched up above the fridge with these fun tassel knobs.


I took this wreath off of our front door to replace with another  for summer.  I love it on the hood.   

For JB’s birthday present in February was a wine fridge to replace our never used trash compactor.

The previous owners redid this kitchen in 2005.  It’s been 12 years since then, and I think it still looks pretty good.  The color of the granite wouldn’t be my choice, but it could be way worse.  We aren’t planning on redoing the kitchen anytime soon … so this is a fun way to update it a little in the meantime.  For not too much money!  There’s still a few things I’m planning on doing in the coming months that I think will make a big impact.  I am looking to find a light fixture(currently it has some unfortunate looking track lighting) and we also plan to buy a brass faucet to replace this one.  Stay tuned (:
