Last week I was in the mood to do a little farmhouse kitchen decorating.
I made a new sign, did some rearranging and cleaning, and then the most wonderful thing happened.
I woke up the next morning to take photos and discovered the weather had changed from winter to spring overnight. We went from temps in the 40’s to temps in the low 60’s.
I knew it wouldn’t last long, but I was so happy for every single warmer degree that I ran to the store and bought some spring flowers to celebrate.
I could almost pretend it was a warm spring day.
I made the new sign on a piece of board left over from my wooden tote making marathon a few weeks ago.
Here’s a little farmhouse kitchen decorating tip – rather than hide cast iron skillets in a cabinet, I love to display mine on my walls.
They are all in easy reach above my stove.
I love that they are functional wall art and save on cabinet space.
I have a total of twelve skillets on the wall in all different sizes. I used antique square peg nails to hang them. They were a wonderful find I got at a flea market.
I filled one of my smaller ironstone pitchers with more flowers for the corner wall next to the stove.
I’m not sure what the little metal rack on my wall was originally used for, but I use it to hold measuring cups and spoons.
I won it and the metal pie tin at an auction several years ago.
I really have to get myself to some more auctions. I miss finding wonderful vintage pieces like these.
I’ve got one more kitchen project to share soon, and it’s an easy one!
On another note, today is my youngest son’s birthday.
It’s so hard to believe my “baby” is 17 years old!
