For this weeks Tabletop Tuesday hosted by Barb over at Grits & Glamour I decided to share some cabinet top vignettes. These photos were taken quite a time ago before I became the professional photo taker that I am now (wink wink) so they are not the best or the clearest but I figure they are fair enough to share.When we first bought our home one of the things that was never a favorite of mine was the fact that the cabinets in the kitchen did not go straight up to the ceiling. I am not a huge fan of space above cabinets. I could appreciate the custom cabinetry as well as the varying heights to create interest but blah, didn't want open cabinet tops. Mr. Whimsy assured me that this was no reason not to buy a home. Ha ha! Silly man. I have made sure since buying this home to let him know weekly how much I dislike my cabinets. I will save that story for a rainy day though!
Of course one always makes the best of every situation or at least trys to and in this case so did I. There are only two cabinets wide enough and low enough to really display anything on top of in my kitchen to begin with so I figured they were a good spot to place two of my loves. Pewter and transferware. I did need to add a couple more goodies to balance it all out. One of my favorite pieces of all times is my transferware rooster. I have had this fella for years. He used to sit on my island in our old home but he was quite happy to hop up on top of that cabinet and take watch. He is joined by a pewter tea kettle a topiary and a platter my sister in law gave me from Southern Living at Home.Across the kitchen from that vignette sits another. Here I have a pottery finial a topairy, one of my Spode Blue Room transferware plates and a pewter bunny. We all know how I love those bunnies!Please join Barb over at Grits & Glamour as she hosts her second Tabletop Tuesday.
