More Blues in the Kitchen

The last few days we've had constant rain around our area, it's been a blessing with the drought we've been in the last couple of years. Good for the crops not so good for working outside. I took the opportunity to play inside.
It's no secret I'm over the moon about blue and white. It seems to have taken over almost every room in the house. The kitchen table is one of those areas we can change things up easily and quickly.
Using a wooden tray or basket makes those transitions quickly adding texture and class to an otherwise flat surface. I gathered a few things to fit my mood. A gorgeous lantern for height fills the left side nicely. Adding flowers adds the softness the wooden tray and rough edges of the lantern need.

Classy wooden handle sets the mood for easy lifting and removing the tray for table to be decked out in beautiful dishes.
The jelly dish was a garage sale find a few years back, the weathered patina shows it's age, making one wonder how many hands have used the spoon into the beautiful crystal dish filled with jelly. I have to admit the patina didn't bother me at the time I took the picture, shortly after one cloudy Sunday afternoon I spent the day polishing all the silver in the house.

So there you have the breakfast room table decorated for Spring, one can only guess what the hot summer months might bring to the table. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments.
