Simple Platter Decor

I have been contemplating adding a collection of white ironstone to my soffit display in the kitchen.  It currently has an eclectic mix of enamelware and red handled utensils…

I’ve been thinking that the ironstone platters would bring a little more contemporary and subdued look to my upbeat 50’s style kitchen…mostly I’m just a bit bored with it though…

Instead…I noticed how lovely a pile of rocks that I had dumped out of a vase looked on a white plastic lid as they dried…so…I grabbed the ironstone platter that I picked up for $1 over the weekend!!!

And…

What an easy way to add an outdoor, contemporary, simple touch to my “Sticks and Stones” piano top that's viewed as a mantel (Thanks Nester!)

...and it was just $1!!!!

I also have to tell you that I am SOOO PROUD of myself for finally putting up a simple post instead of writing a novel each time!!!

Enjoy:)

What a wonderful vignette! I love it...the colors play off of each other so well. Even though you had not set out to use the rocks in that way, they really look good. :)

I love it!!! Your white ironstone platter looks fabulous with the rocks on it. I may have to steal this idea. I love your entire sticks & stones vignette. And I had to laugh as your comment about the length of the post. I tend to be quite wordy. So I could relate. Thanks for sharing.

You did good, girl! I like to use that type of river rocks around my home as well. God's art is the most beautiful! I like your blog and your blog name, too. Come see me sometime at sceneofthegrime.blogspot.com

Lovely display, love your clock too!

Postcardy said...

That's a nice display idea. Seeing the clock there made me think of "watching the paint dry," although here it was stones drying.
