Something Different

I was working on my kitchen lately changing the displays.  I had this one by the sink but did not think it looked  finished.  Then I picked up a few Fallish type pieces from Walmart and combined it with flowers I already had.  Now that looks a lot better and I think it is done.  
The jar on the left has brown sugar in it and the tall one in the back has spaghetti.  You don't usually put flowers in these but for now it is doing a good job as a flower vase.
One last thing to get this corner finished.

 One of a set of place mats will do for the 
finishing touch.  

 All of the items I have had for sometime already.
The tea set my daughters gave me two Christmas's ago.  They came from Cracker Barrel I understand.

The green
glass canisters were given to 
me a few years ago.  The flowers
came from Goodwill and the wheat and
cat tails I just picked up at Walmart for
$.99 each.

So for very little expense I have something
new to look at when I am 
working at the kitchen sink.

I am linking it up to Funky Junk Interior’s theme this week……things used as vases.
