~ Sometimes It's The Little Things ~


 If you're a long time visitor you know "nothing" stays the same around here for long. If you're a first time visitor I'm so glad you came. No, my friends, I don't pick favorites, if the mood strikes, it's time to move things around. I haven't shared the top of the refrigerator with you for quite a while. I even forgot to share the darling silver bunnies. But I digress, that brings us to this post. I love all the silver as it adds a bit of pop to the top of a necessary item we all have to have in our kitchen. I knew I wanted to add some more blue and white. The cache pot was brought in from another room. I know, another spot is left in it's quake to be filled and revealed at a later date.
 
Greenery, it was calling for greenery. Just the look I was going after, warmth and bit more color. 
I like this much better, what do you think? 
Reflections....
The curved handle of the pitcher is almost a mirror image of the curved handle of the cache pot. Tarnished edges only add to the vintage feel of the pitcher, nothing a bit of Hagerty Silver Polish won't fix. Yes, that's little 'ole me in the reflection of the pitcher.

A "little" change, made a huge difference.

Your silver is stunning, Lynne, but I love the addition of the blue and white pot with the greenery!

Your refig vignette just pops with the silver, blue pot and touch of green. I love silver and think I am going to need to find my boxes of silver that are packed away.

You've come up with a nice combination. I love that we're all using silver again in a more casual way.

When I moved to my house last year I was going to try to stay away from the greenery on top of everything but guess what? It looked incomplete and cold! I love the touch of green you added to the pretty blue, white and silver.

You are right- details matter! I can't believe that is the top of your fridge! It's so clean! I'm afraid mine has enough fuzz...I can grow cabbage!
