We have a really nice Marshall's not far from here that I like to visit occasionally to freshen things up each season. Last week they had some pretty blue and white flower arrangements that were on sale. On the kitchen table is a really big footed glass container lined with the leaves of Hydrangeas on the bottom and big fluffy blue and white Hydrangeas spilling over the top of it. The two blue bean pots and the Tracey Porter candle sticks give some width to the vertical arrangement.
After redoing the centerpiece on the table the old centerpiece got moved over to the cabinet on the other side of the kitchen eating area. The three plates behind it fill in the blank space at the top and the tall pitchers add some width. The lavender on top of the cupboard was in a pink pot but the blue one seems to work better with this new arrangement.
These blue and white dishes with the roses on them fit into the spaces of the cupboard. These were our dishes at the cottage but now get used when we have extra mouths to fee. After figuring out how to move the shelves around in the cupboards there was room to display the huge blue wine glasses that Sarah got us a couple of years ago for Christmas.
We needed something to keep all the lemons and limes that we use in, so at Marshall's we picked up these two tall footed containers. They had some with lids that were nice too, but the open topped ones seemed like they would be easier to access the fruit with out the possibility of breaking the top.
This smaller vase of blue and white flowers is one of two that we thought would work in the dining room on the buffet but they were to big so this one ended up here and the other one is in the living room.
Marshall's was loaded with goodies last Thursday. It seems like I read somewhere that Thursdays are a good day to go to the discount stores like Marshall's and TJMaxx because they restocked for the weekend. It sure was true last week.
Are y'all having a good summer? We sure are around here with lots of family fun. Wednesday Mom and Dad are coming down for a couple of days and then it will be time to get ready for our 4th of July vacation up north.
Take care and God bless,
