A Year In Review ~Vignettes

I enjoy changing the decor on table tops and shelves for the seasons and today I am sharing a look back at some of these vignettes.

The two little shelves we added to the end of our upper cabinets in our kitchen are frequently changed for the seasons. I love that I can easily add seasonal decor and colour to our otherwise neutral kitchen with these display shelves.


The farmhouse table in our kitchen has also seen many centerpieces and 'photo shoots' this year, from flowers, to baked goods and new finds. The light from our patio doors and skylights usually make this the best spot for photos, even on darker days.


My vintage aqua mason jars and galvanized sap buckets are favourites to use in displays.


I use lots of whites in dishes, textiles and flowers and shades of whites usually show up in most of my photos.


I shared my authentic design style post here, and I love making changes to our home and decor that better reflects the style I love. Our home, like many, is constantly evolving but I love that with a mostly neutral background I can add seasonal pops of colour, like red at Christmas, to keep things interesting.

I hope you enjoyed your Christmas and thanks for taking time out of your day to visit.

  4. I love your vignettes. You really make good use of your shelves in the kitchen - love seeing how they changed through the seasons.

    By the way, I'm curious to know what tool you are using to make your mosaics? I'm always going back and forth between Picnik and Bighugelab - they each have their strengths (and weaknesses).

  5. I think I like the Christmas vignette the best where you used the rolling pins in the jar. So cute! I love your white bread box too. I'm on the hunt for one.
