so what does your counter look like?

Thursday, January 21, 2010 |

i finally got my counter together. i didn't say done...just together.
i know...the penguin isn't a normal valentine's day decoration. my 9 year old is doing a project on penguins for school and we had to find a safe place for him. (he is a paper mache animal, with a diet coke plastic bottle being the body and a styrofoam ball as the head. we are still working on the report)
i like the look of this coke bottle, and since it was red-i put it out for the holiday! a looonnnngggg time ago i bought a vintage bingo set from the d.i. and i put all the little pieces you use to call the game in here. i think it is kind of fun. and if someone actually ventured into my home for a visit, they would think i was clever. i will have to still with you thinking that.
that photo is of my nana and pop pop on their honeymoon. i love that photo. it is my favorite thing about this!
so there you go! i will add to it (i have a ceramic bird that i am spray painting downstairs as we speak, so that will end up here at some point) before february 14...
so-what does your counter look like?

I'm not much of a Valentine's Day fan, so my counter is decorated with olive oil, balsamic vinegar bottles, a bucket o' whisks, and a small container of lemons!

My counter currently has a lot of dirty dishes and a bunch of bread crumbs...but I have hope that one day that will all be gone.

That's such a sweet and sentimental counter display! Love the penguin, especially. Do you change it every season/holiday?

Thanks for the comment at Lark & Lola, too!

What a great idea to have a display like that on your counter...I will have to figure out something like that!
