Over the weekend I stopped at Michaels to purchase some filler for the candlescape I created in my favorite tray that sits on top of my island.
I've been trying to incorporate more lime green and brown into my kitchen. It's becoming my favorite color scheme these days.
This filler was perfect as it had just enough color to brighten up my tray and contrast with the dark brown candles.
Don't know what those things are, but I love them.
I love how it looks now.
And speaking of islands. No I'm not taking a vacation - at least not any time soon. I'm joining Shelia's Heart of the Home Favorite Cupboard party and my kitchen island is just that - my favorite cupboard!
In my last home I did not have an island and it was high on my wish list for this home. And it also happens to be a necessity as I have a very small kitchen with not a lot of counter space.
I love my island because it's nice and big and I can see into the family room as I prepare meals.
And since we're looking into the family room, I'll share my latest changes in there too.
Last week I shared the changes I had to make after Mr. Bliss decided to move the new receiver on top of my entertainment center.
Well, I changed it up again. Here is what it looked like last week:
And here it is now:
Like I said, I'm into the green/brown thing now and this works better for me. I took out the red.
I added some greenery into a small trunk I got at Michaels.
I also switched out the little display on the top shelf. I shopped the house and found this basket that fits perfectly into this small space. Then I added the orbs I got at Walmart last year.
I like this much better. Of course now you can see that stupid hole in the back.
I'm linking up to Marty's Tabletop Tuesday party today too. Be sure to visit both blogs for more cupboard and tabletop fun!
