A Kitchen & Lighthouse Weekend

Hope eveyone had a good weekend.
Mine was spent pretty much in the kitchen.
The weather didn't want to cooperate to much for me this past weekend,
so I pulled out the old recipes books and spent a lot of time in the kitchen.

Sitting at the end of one of my counters in the kitchen is this little vignette.
I am always changing it around, so this weekend I grabbed my camera and took a few shots.

A few vintage candle holders, milk pitcher, keys and I was all set.

The lighthouse picture is actually from a calender.  
I took an old picture frame I had, painted it white and then repainted the mat. 
Breathing new life into an old picture frame. 
A lighthouse new life that is.  Anyone who knows me, knows I love the sea!  :)

I always try to have a few horseshoes around the house for good luck.
Vintage ones are even better luck - according to me anyway!

I like how the candle flames reflect off the glass.

All in all, I had a very productive weekend baking. 
My teenage son ate half of it, while the other half went into the freezer.



 I will be joining Show Off Your Cottage over at The house in the roses


  1. Good Morning Diane Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh what a beautiful share this morning.

    I absolutely love your vignette. That lighthouse photo is so breathtakingly beautiful. In the candle light it gives it that appearance as though it is lighting the way for a ship to pass through. I love it.

    Love the little pitcher as well. That green band and the contrast of the antique keys, just beautiful.

    Have a glorious week dear one. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  2. such a pretty vignette! I'm afraid I would have eaten the other half of the baking, had I made it! I need your willpower to put it in the freezer =)

  3. It makes me crazy when the goodies I make are gone before I am done the cleanup from making them. Lol.
    I love calendar pictures in home decor. They are often much nicer than a lot of the framed art in the stores.

  4. HI Diane,
    I love your vignette..and the lighthouse picture is so pretty! it caught my eye right away. Calender's have really pretty photo's, I have framed them before also. A great way to re-use and re-purpose.
    I love the sea too it always relaxes me.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  5. What a beautiful display! I love the candle light.
    Blessings, Joanne

  6. I love your vignette. Those big rusty keys are wonderful and candles burning set the mood. Very pretty! Hugs, Pamela

  7. What a pretty grouping of the things you love! I do like the candles reflected in the picture!
    Thank you so much for stopping by and your sweet comment, I'm now a follower of your blog:)


  8. Love this vignette...the lighthouse, the keys, the pretty! I've painted mats before in picture frames, too. Glad to see someone else do works and it's free! Linda
