Kitchen Vignette For March


I'm always changing the vignette in this little corner next to the sink. The teapot lamp is a constant and I recently added my favorite photo of Dexter and I. The green frame is the same green as the cabinet sample.

To the left of the sink is an apothecary-like dish soap dispenser that I keep refilling.
I love its elegance. It sure looks better than the Palmolive squirt bottle!

A pair of ivy topiaries in tole planters flank both sides of the sink.
I like how they stand out against the white marble and tile.

Candles on the windowsill!

And that's my kitchen vignette on a gloomy March evening.

I added one more thing.
A grocery store bunch of daffodils not only smells good, but is a spot of sunshine inside while it rains cats and dogs outside.
Wishing you all a fantastic week! Spring is just around the corner!



Pin It!

I find all my frames at either TJMaxx or Marshalls. Never pay more than 7.99 for them either!

I am loving this rainy weather. Good time to cozy in and we need it for our yards!! Always love what you do in your home to make it warm and cozy. Loved the picture of you and Dexter, made me feel a little sad, but I know he gave you lots of happiness and love and you did the same for him!! happy Monday, Have a wonderful week, sweet friend,

Just a hint...

I also have some gorgeous soap dispensers designed for one use, but I want to keep refilling, so I protected the labels by covering them with some handy-dandy clear pastic packing tape. Tah-dah! Laminated.

Ok stop the press, Dexter is too cute, I want a Dexter too! I love the fact you make even the dishwashing area a great place to work at. I havent come across the Muchison-Hume brand but it certainly elevates the style factor from the usual gaudy coloured bottles. Very smart Delores.

I found the bottle at Anthropologie on sale a year ago.
The label is great because it doesn't come off. My poor little Dexter was the cutest ever. Sure do miss that little guy.

Tricia Rose said...

I decant my dish soap too, it makes me a better washer-upper because I don't hide it away any more.

Love your vignettes as always Delores, and so intrigued by what appears to be a fin on top if your car. Don't tell me you floofed your ride?

Shelia said...

I love your new vignette and what a lovely kitchen you have! Love everything you do.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh Tricia, too funny. That is Gary's river boat all propped up to drain the water out! Looks like a fin! haha!

Gosh you just have such a knack!

Your ivy topiaries look sooo good on either side of the sink and I love the photo of you and Dexter. Wishing you sweet memories of him, and a happy Spring.

Sarah said...

Delores, your daffodils are certainly a cheerful touch. Sweet photo of you and Dexter. I just joined Pinterest and one of the first photos I pinned is one you posted of Dexter on your sofa. Such a sweet photo. ~ Sarah

Oh such a lovely kitchen to chase away the gloomy day outside. (I am enjoying the gentle rain here today!)

Isn't it funny how just a little tweak here and there, can make us happy? New little votives on the windowsill, grocery store daffodils? Simple, but everytime we tend to our senses.......it pays off. I love the picture of you and your sweet Dexter.
