I love getting ideas on Pinterest and turning it into something that fits my taste and style. I saw this and like it, but I really thought it needed a more country look. But I did like the premise.
My first thought was that I could do something with the salt and pepper shakers my daughter got me for Christmas.
So over the past two weeks I started gathering things. I liked the idea of flowers, but I really didn't want solid pink since my kitchen is multi-colored. I found these for 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby so I got them for $4.98 for the bunch.
I have a vintage McCoy pitcher from the 1960's. My cousin Patty and I had bought it for our Mamaw. When she passed away, Patty made sure it got to me. So I try to use it in my kitchen with flowers whenever I can.
I thought the flowers looked pretty good in the pitcher.
On a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, I found this tray in some of their new spring products. It was 50% off so I got it for $9.99. Love how it looks weathered and old.
I did like the red and cream dishcloth idea in the Pinterest pic. I found this for $2.99 at Hobby Lobby as well.
Picked up some romantic looking material.
Cut it into a heart shape and used hot glue to create a little pillow with some fiber fill inside. I hot glued a little button for an extra touch.
I love the nesting chicken salt dips and had one with a little blue color splattered in it. I thought that would add a little contrast of color as well.
So I put together my arrangement based on the Pinterest idea and I must say for my taste, this is absolutely perfect. I keep going in the kitchen just to look at it. I am going for this country farmhouse theme and I think this fits right in.
What do you think?
