Spring Has Hit the Kitchen!

Ahhhh ... I love smell of fresh, *faux* flowers, don't you?!  Spring has arrived in our kitchen.  Come on in ...

A few LOT of pics to share (sorry):

My little Spring-filled cloche:

A beautiful chicken wire tray from PB serves as the base for this little vignette.  I've been eyeing it since last Fall, but wasn't going to pay $34.  So happy to have found it on sale last month for $14! 

Couldn't pass up on a cute rooster print from Dollar General for only $3.  Who knew?!

Love adding color with these:

A lamp which I added twine to the shade for an added bit of texture:

Mr. Big Rooster (formerly gray) got a coat of BM White Dove, too.  He sits perched on one of our soffits:

The chalkboard that we made for our pantry door got a fresh coat of chalkboard paint and addition of a grocery list (with my favorite chalk ink markers).  "Triscuits" are an inside joke, as they are a staple in my diet. :)

You know I have to have a bit of animal print in here, too ...

Can never have enough glass canisters (or Keurig coffee, according to my hubs):

And, the formerly gold frame was also a victim of BM White Dove.  Please just tell me to put.the.paint.brush.down!

I hope you enjoyed your visit!

I'll drag you over to the breakfast area next time ... 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Come on over to these fabulous par-tays!

  1. Becca, I am in love with your kitchen!! I love all your accents. The tray is too cute, and I love the glass canisters...something I have been looming for lately. Where did you find those? Beautiful kitchen!!

  2. Very pretty Becca, I love the old silver in the glass..Very classy lookin..Hugs and smiles Gloria

  3. As always...it's gorgeous! Love the light and bright feel!

  4. So pretty Becca! It really does look very fresh. I love the chicken wire tray and your vignette with the lamp and the silver tray. I may want to borrow that idea! I love, love,love, the chalkboard door too. Lovely kitchen!

  5. You did a great job bringing Spring into your kitchen, Becca! That is a great print from the dollar store ~ it looks like the checks in the picture match your backsplash tile squares.

  6. Hi Becca, I am new to your blog, I found you through my friend Shelly at Calypso in the Country. I am from SC also! Where are you? I am in Beaufort. Nice to meet another SC blogger. I am @ http://seasidestyle.blogspot.com

  7. Everything looks wonderful! And the faux flowers are perfect when you have allergies...like me :)!

  8. So cute! I love everything you have done...the lampshade that you added twine to is darling! Love the birdnest that you have placed under a cloche. Absolutely LOVE the chalkboard on your pantry door. What an amazing space!

  9. Hi Becca! I'm lovin' every little detail in your kitchen. The glass with the silver, the urn with the cooking utensils, and the freshly painted rooster are oh so nice!
    Ahh...the fresh "faux" flowers, they are perfect for those who suffer with seasonal allergies so badly this time of year.
    Lovely kitchen!

    have a happy day~ L

  10. Where did you get your glass canisters and your chalk paint and chalk? By the way, I LOVE your style of deco :)

  11. Beautiful kitchen Becca, and soooo many things that I'm lovin!! Like the vignette on your island, the lamp shade you added the twine to "very creative" the glass canisters and last but not least the vintage silverware! Looking forward to seeing whats next, Martina

  12. Hi Becca,I love your kitchen!! It has so much charm!!Every detail is gorgeous.


  13. Becca, everything looks so fresh and pretty! I have been seeing a lot of people use those big canisters lately. I might just have to pick some up soon, I love them! :) Beautiful kitchen. :)

  14. Everything looks beautiful!! Love that you store your coffee in a glass jar. I need to get one to put my Keurig coffee in. Love the vintage silverware too!

  15. I love the touches of spring! That cloche is too cute with the little ruffle edge. I've been thinking for a while about lightening up my living room. I have rooster similar to yours in a dark grayish-brown... and now I know he will look equally fab in some creamy white! I love the chalk board pantry door too! I just might have to steal that idea. Okay, that's a whole lotta love in one comment. lol

  16. Hey girl! Love, love, love everything! Just saw a whole lot of ideas I'm gonna be borrowing from you my friend! :-)
    P.S. I have the same Outdoor Entertaining book from WS...I promise I already had it before I saw yours! :-)

  28. LOVE your kitchen! It's a dream to have a spacious kitchen...I don't right now. Where do you find the glass canisters? Honestly, I look and never see them.

    I just bought a Keurig and tried it out this afternoon. The coffee tasted like metal ~ so disappointed! :-( I did everything the instructions said and not sure what's going on. Any advice?

    Hope you're having a great week!

    Have a wonderful day,

  55. I;ve just spent WAY to long drooling on your blog... Fabulous! Thanks for stopping by today.

  56. Hi Becca...

    My friend, your kitchen is GORGEOUS!!! It looks especially pretty all dressed up for spring! I love the pretty spring vignette that you created for the kitchen island...sooo pretty! Of course, the cloche with the sweet nest and eggs is just precious! Nothing says spring like a pretty nest and eggs!!! Love your faux arrangement too! Girlfriend, I almost go completely faux at my place...where flowers are concerned. Living in Colorado doesn't allow alot of time for fresh flowers, I would be constantly buying them. Love, love, LOVE your chalkboard door! I would love to do that but alas...I don't have a door in my kitchen! Hehe! I sooo enjoyed all of your beautiful bright and light spring touches, dear lady! Love all your jars with the food stuffs!!! Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous home with us...it is always a treat!!!

    I also wanted to thank you for stopping by and taking a peek at my spring mantel! I always enjoy your visits and sweet notes! You made my day with that one!!!

    Warmest spring wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  57. Thankyou for the very sweet comment you left on my blog.

    Your kitchen is beautiful!!! I can't decide which is my favorite..the cloche or the chalkboard on the door! It all looks perfect.

  58. Wow, sorry I haven't popped in in awhile & have some catchin' up to do. Your kitchen is so pretty. You really know how to add just the right touches. The newly painted rooster looks great, as do the newly painted & recovered barstools. Love that animal print. Like the new look for the mudroom, too. I love bead board & that was a great touch in there. It's sweet that you have designated frames for your little guys artwork so you can change it out. Really like your command central area. You've been really busy. Everything looks terrific as usual.

  59. Becca- your kitchen is Beautiful!! love the white dove "victims"!! how did we all live without chalkboard paint?!! bless the person who invented it!

    happy weekend!

  60. Love everything especially the cloche and wire tray!!!! I want to come steal those! =)

  61. Every time I visit your blog...I feel like I could stay on here for hours and admire everything.

  62. Wow, this looks lovely. Hope to see you at My Dream Canvas.

  63. Wow, this looks lovely. Hope to see you at My Dream Canvas.

  64. Okay... I more than love your blog! Would love for you to join my link party sometime.

  65. Hey lovely Becca,

    I'm wondering where you stood to get the up-high view of your kitchen!!! I can just picture you now, teetering on a stool!!!

    I really like your glass jars with little scoops in. They're gorgeous -but your whole kitchen is lovely.
