It's the Small Things

After a rough day yesterday, I decided to go look through some local flea markets and came across this adorable vintage metal can. Isn't it cute? I love it! It's an old vegetable shortening can! Well, since I love to bake, I couldn't think of anything more fitting, so, I had to get it, right?! I filled her up with these gorgeous, snow white variety of stock I picked up at the grocery store. They immediately made me smile. Simple, pretty and cheerful.
They're going on my kitchen counter which just happens to be getting a mini-makeover. Since I have so much lovely barn wood to work with, I am building a rustic, farmhouse style center work table for my kitchen. Check back for that, and I promise I will do step by step pics for a tutorial should anyone ever want to build one as well. Happy day!
Sorry for the slightly crooked photos!

  11. Gorgeous display. I recently found an old library "glue pot" that I put flowers in and I love it too. Who even knew there was such a thing as a glue pot? What were they gluing?? LOL

  13. Hello - Here from The Lettered Cottage! Funny, I just also did a post about these kinds of containers for flowers. Would it be tacky of me to say that great minds think alike?

    Yours arrangement is beautiful!
