Patriotic Kitchen Vignette

Do you ever wonder how a vignette comes together?  

For me, I always have a couple of key pieces in mind, like flags for the 4th and some red objects.  (The handier the items the better)

My beloved red handled masher purchased very recently and the nut grinder were already in the kitchen.



Red white and blue stars from a craft shop will work in a small crock.

Then sometimes the unexpected works too.  Like this reproduction Cracker Jack door stop I had borrowed from my Mom once for a dog vignette I had planned.  I never used it!

A vintage liberty jug I spotted in a cupboard, a red Folgers can from a shelf in my den, and a red white and blue dime register bank usually displayed on a spice rack with old tins in the laundry room, round out the vignette on a red ticking runner.





And that's how my patriotic kitchen vignette came together!  Happy 4th of July Everybody!

  6. Love how you've decorated for the 4th,Carlene. I am going out of town and not decorating this year. I let my daughter use my things since she's having her in-laws over for a cook out.
    Hope you have a great 4th.

  7. What a great idea to just add items that are already Red, White or Blue to create a vignette. I'm pinning your idea. Would also transfer well to other holidays like Christmas or Valentine's Day.

  23. Carlene, you pulled it together as usual. I love the red handled masher. Think I need to keep my eyes out for at least one. The stars in the crock are so fun as is the Cracker Jack door stop. Love it all! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
