OOPS, I Changed it Again!

I can't stop myself!!!  I keep changing my house, and I don't know what's wrong with me.  I didn't really set out to change my kitchen BUT....I saw this picture at Kirkland's....and that's all it took.

I really like this even though I'm no big wine drinker.  I just like the Tuscan look of wine bottles, and I think they add such an elegant, old world feel.  So, on a whim, I am tweaking my kitchen a little and adding more of the wine theme.  Here are a few sneak previews...I'm going to work more on it over the long weekend.

Here's the top of the refrigerator.  I HAVE to have something up there.  It just looks "naked" without it!  The fleur de lis bowl is from Kirkland's, and I filled it with faux pears I got at Old Time Pottery awhile back.  The wine bottle picture is from Beall's Outlet.  It was only $12.99!!  LOVE the pear on it and the colors are perfect for my kitchen....

A couple of glimpses of the countertops...Another wine picture from Beall's Outlet (also $12.99).  I bought the wine at the grocery store for $3.99 just because I like the bottle!!  It has a gorgeous crane on it.  I think it looks great with this picture!
That leopard print fleur de lis tray is from Hobby Lobby.  I COULD NOT live without it.  My two favorite things are on there --- animal print AND a fleur de lis!!  It's like winning the lotto!!  I HAD to have it.  I really think that I NEED another one!!!!!
Here's  a sneak peek of the other counter...I have had the canisters (also from Kirkland's) for awhile and also the gold charger (K's, too).  My favorite cookbook has to be on the counter because I use it quite often.  My son told me I needed something "green" over there and brought me the pears on this tray.  I think that was a great suggestion, so I added them and also the black urn with a boxwood greenery ball to top it off.  I really like the way this turned out!
I still haven't hung up the large wine picture yet, but I will get there over the weekend.  It's just been a busy, crazy week!  I will be soooo glad when things settle down a bit. 

See you soon with more from the kitchen!


  1. I know what's wrong with you to cause you to keep changing your home around ... you're showing the beginning signs of the ADD (attention *decorating* disorder) that all of us bloggers tend to have !! LOL. LOVE your new print and the beautiful vignettes you created (both on top fo your fridge as well as your counter) !! Are you counting the days for school to end ?!

  2. Great vignettes, they look so pretty!! I agree with Becca I think all us bloggers show signs of ADD Attention Decorating Disorder(LOL)!! Martina

  3. Hi Farica, great job in rearranging all your lovely Tuscan items! I also love the Tuscan look!
    have a great day,

  4. Love it!! I'm also not a wine drinker but I love the bottles. & I loveeee how you put animal print in your kitchen! My hubby would think I'm nuts if I would attempt to do that. :)
