~Tulips in the Kitchen~

Tulips remind me of Spring and after a week of below freezing temps and foggy dreary days, I'm ready for it!  So when I was at the grocery store and tulips were on sale, I grabbed some to place in the trophy in my kitchen to help brighten my day.

I shared the breakfast area of our kitchen last week and thought I'd show you the other side today since I've added and moved things around on my countertops.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I started some hyacinth bulbs in ironstone containers and this shows some in a gravy boat sitting in my wire dish drainer.  Can't wait til they bloom:-)

This is what you see coming into the kitchen while walking down the hall from the laundry room.



And this area is the other side as you are heading toward the dining room.
