My kitchen window for the month of April is very simply decorated. A bunny and his cart...and flowers...daisies for now.
I took down the valance for a more airy, open look. It lets in more natural light and gives the whole room a lighter look.
I'll change the flowers every week. Fresh flowers from the market are my weekly indulgence...tulips, hydrangeas, daisies...I love picking something different each week.
The daisies above are in a sweet little cream pitcher that belonged to my grandmother.
It is etched with lilies of the valleys...I remember this tiny treasure from my childhood.
It has the most endearing mends on the handle...
...silver strips that have been soldered for strength...by my grandfather, who was an engineer. His knowledge served him well...the mends have extended the life of this little vessel for over fifty years. It is a reminder of a time when things were treasured and repaired, rather than tossed for their imperfections...I like that.
This diminutive egg watercolor was gifted to me by the talented Steve Shelton. A mere inch and a half, by an inch and three quarters, the detail is wonderful. A speckled egg...the perfect symbol of spring!
The portrait by Anne Childs and the photo of my two loves are back after a month off. These two items are so much a part of my window, I miss them when they are not there to greet me every morning. Like the lantern on the small tiger maple stool, and the trammel candle holder, the painting and the photo are my window "regulars".
Hope warmer weather is finding you all. We've had a lot of rain and lower than normal temperatures and that's fine with me. It seems something is amiss...lots of rain in March has brought us April flowers! My red geraniums have dozens of hearty blooms! I'll take flowers any day...any month!
Enjoy the day,
