Valentine Vignette

Since I had my vintage red and white quilt on the dining table for Valentine’s Day, I decided to create a kitchen vignette to extend using the quilt a while longer. I have never decorated much for this holiday so using the red and white things I already had seems liked the perfect solution. Free decorating for the Valentine holiday.
All the items used were either Thrifted, Gifted, or Repurposed. Why buy new when you don’t have to? The vintage apron was from a blogging friend and the dipper was thrifted and it’s something I use every time I make a big pot of soup or chili. It’s the perfect size for a one cup dip.
I reused the muffin tins from my Christmas vignette, and the flour sifter was thrifted. The red bucket of herbs is a start to my Kitchen Herb Garden. Nothing better than fresh herbs this time of year. With all the snow on the ground it is nice to see something alive and green.
The green cabinet was found while junkin, the previous owner used it in his plumbing shop for storage and all I did was clean it up, I love the color and all it’s scratched up charm.  The crochet hot pad was also thrifted, and the darling vintage apron came from a blogging friend. I wear the apron every Thanksgiving when I serve at the Good Samaritan dinner.
 Here’s a view from the loft of my simple, farmhouse vignette. The open design concept is one of the things I love best about our house. No one ever feels singled out in one room with everything being wide open.
I am loving all the red and white right now and enjoying decorating with all my thrifted finds!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all.
