I know it's not much, actually very simple, but I really love this little touch of farmhouse decor to the center of my kitchen table.
My mom and dad recently visited our friends, Betty and Richard, in the foothills of the Ozarks. They, (well the women), went shopping and my mom brought this home for me...two old milk bottles in a wire carrier. One says milk and the other says buttermilk. I had actually been looking for one of these, so I was real excited to get it! I can just imagine the milk man knocking on my backdoor delivering our morning milk.
It made a really cute centerpiece for our 4th of July celebration, simply with mini flags in the bottles.
Today it has daisies in them from my mom and dad's flower garden. I envision all sorts of flowers in there...some of my roses...flowers that Joy brings in freshly picked for me...whatever I'm blessed with at that moment. It makes such a cheery, happy atmosphere in my kitchen!
I'm thinking of even adding some powdered sugar....that might look alot like milk....for a change too.
Can you tell I'm excited about this simple little farmhouse decor on my table? I think it's because I've discovered lately that although I LOVE primitives in my decor alot...I still love a mix of farmhouse, americana and rustic decor. These four things combined define my style of decorating...I wonder what you would call that? I tend to like simple too, less clutter...which is also good for my budget! I find myself always attracted to the same things that fall into these four categories..so I guess I am remaining true to what I really love. Simply.....country, I guess.
