Kitchen Counters


Hello Dear Ones! Today I thought I'd bring you into the kitchen and show you a few of the little vignettes I have sitting around on my counter tops!

I found these little chicken canisters a few weeks (some of you may remember the post here) back at an antique shop and it was love at first sight! I washed these little babies up and poked my flour, sugar and Equal in them.

They're sitting happily in a corner with a large white tray behind them.

Then I have a white vignette going on. If you look really closely you'll see my terribly olden countertops - Fomica - and honey, it's the real thing. From about a foot away it looks like the color white but up close like this you can see the little bitty line drawings of green flowers. Very 1970. Why haven't we changed it? We've planned on it a few times and then life happens... ;)


Here's my newest little treasure...a little bitty tureen. It's just so cute and I love it. Can you love little tiny tureens? You bet your little potato soup you can! :)

I always have some chickens and Roosters (that's with a capital R) hanging around in the kitchen. Here's a couple of little white ones.

Now we're moving on around the room and here's my tiny window over the sink filled with my little treasures.

Lots of Roosters - even a little Rooster tea towel. The little tea towel is a tad offended because he's being held by a metal bunny towel holder.

Salt and Peppers. The top ones were mine when I was a tiny little girl! I love my S & Ps! And, yes I can! ;)

The last vignette I'm going to show you sits in my little tiny light green wooden tray. There's kind of a barnyard garden theme going on in this tray. The little coffee serving spoon was given to me from Our Dear Darlene at Darlene's Days. I love this!

Mother chicken with her little peep peeps. This figurine has always reminded me of the scripture in Psalm ~ "He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart." I love that, don't you?

Mommy chicken with her most tiny cute baby chicks! Isn't this the sweetest little thing?


Next are my cabbage S & Ps. Very gardeny, right?

My kitchen artichoke! Now I love my kitchen artichoke! Can you love little kitchen artichokes? You bet your artichoke and spinach dip you can! :) This little artichoke is made by Fitz & Floyd and you can poke stuff inside and no one will know you're hiding things. Love their stuff!


I've saved this little egg cup for last. Is this just the silliest little face on an egg cup you've ever seen? I saw this in an antique shop, heard snickering, turned around and there was this silly little thing. Well, I love a sense of humor, so little funniness came home with me.

Hope you've enjoyed coming into my kitchen and taking a tiny peep!

(Bob Smith)

Oh ! Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh - ah!
Oh ! Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh - ah!

Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
Sittin' in a native hut
All alone and blue
Sittin' in a native hut
Wonderin' what to do
Along came a native girl
Did a native dance
It was like in paradise
Put me in a trance

Going
Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
Joined her in her dancin' spree
Felt my spine a-tingle
Held her tight and close to me
Man I'm glad I'm single
Then she showed me what to do
First I was amazed
Soon I learned a step or two
Put me in a daze

Going
Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
You can do the ko-ko-bop
Now's no time to stop
Left foot forward right one back
Bring them side by side
Uh syncopate your last two steps
Now you're going to glide
Keep along the rhythm track
Girls please show 'em how
Now you start to arch your back
Man you got it now

Going
Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko-Bop
Shimmy Shimmy Bop
