A Spring Kitchen Table

Our kitchen table is small, but it’s perfect for our space.  It functions for quick breakfasts, long lunches, and homework sessions.  I found the old Pepsi crate at a flea market, and now it serves as a useful centerpiece.  The spoon holder is a family tradition that reminds me of my grandmother every day, and I love the vintage blue Ball jar for a seasonal touch.  Oh how I would love to chat with all of you over a cup of tea!   #aroundthetable

    Beautiful Kimm. I absolutely love your pictures with the beautiful light coming in. I’ve got to work on capturing that beauty in my pictures. A cup of tea with you would be marvelous!!

    Nice table Kimm… lots of character and sense of history. I like that Pepsi crate so much! In April, we are having a Tea Festival here in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Your comment immediately reminded me of my best friend who loves tea! I always join her for a cup although I am a coffee drinker at heart. It all speaks to friendship and hospitality to me. Looking forward to more posts. πŸ™‚

    Lovely! The mason jar and old crate remind me of my childhood in the South, though Coca-Cola advertizing was more prevalent than Pepsi in those “neck of the woods”.

    What a lovely picture Kimm …. I love the crate but what really resonated with me was the spoon holder……. my mother always had a glass container on her trolley in the dining room, and for some reason it never occurred to me to do the same……. I have inherited lots of lovely silver spoons from family and they all live in my cutlery drawer waiting to be used! Thank you for reminding me – I’m off to deal with this!!!!!………………

    I love the Pepsi crate and the blue jar – you are speaking my language. My grandmother also had a spoon dish handy. I don’t know what happened to her beautiful dish, but I have copied her and have a container of spoons at the ready. Good memories of our grandmother’s.

    I’m crazy about how you put that nest in the branches. They are so delicate but can still hold it up. Definitely stealing that idea. I don’t know when my love for nests began but a random one in the house makes me smile. Beautiful.
