Wicker in the Kitchen

      Hi Friends, hope you all had a great weekend! We had a fun one...I had family visiting from Canada and staying with us for a few nights, they left yesterday morning to go back home.
      A few weeks ago I made a stop in Pier1 for some pumpkin scented pillar candles...not only did I find the candles I came across this pretty wicker stand and knew it would work perfect in my kitchen as a caddy to hold my everyday dishes and dish towels.
 See how well my african violets are doing on the window sill near my sink...didn't think they would last this long;)
  I won two of these pretty pineapple hooks at bunco the other night...still have to find a spot for the other one.

 I love the warmth wicker adds to a room...it's the little things like this that puts a smile on my face every time I look in this corner!

 Here's a little peek of the piece I just repainted for the FOURTH time in my son's room...I should have the full reveal in a few days. Love the way his room turned out:)

I love the wicker stand - I could sure use one in my kitchen. Have lots of cubbards but only a couple of little drawers.
Also like the hooks - nice gifts from Bunko.
Have a great weekend.
