You may remember my granite cheese board from some party tablescapes. I bought it in Michigan, and I love it. It used to sit on the low bar that we removed in the kitchen. I wasn't sure where I was going to put it in the "new" kitchen. I also had some concerns about how the granite of the board would look against the new granite of the countertop...but, I like it. I added a few of my favorite "bar" items.
Vintage shot glasses and a vintage
crystal bottle stopper sit in one corner.
An autographed bottle of my favorite Florida
wine was a gift from my daughter at Christmas.
Wine glasses from one of our favorite Michigan
wineries are filled with corks from special occasion wines.
A Waterford Crystal bowl holds bottle stoppers that I love. Look closely and you will see Mickey Mouse! I love having a few that have interesting shapes and colors. They never go in wine bottles, they are just kitchen "bling"!
It makes an interesting presentation tucked in a corner of the kitchen. This picture gives the best preview of the new countertop. There will be more pictures on Monday for Met Monday. We still have some work to do, window treatments and barstools to buy and the tile backsplash won't be installed (by my Dad) until May. However things are almost normal and I'm thrilled with it. I just wish I'd done it sooner.
I'm joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
