As you can see above, the rooster and small artwork look cute on the kitchen table, but a little lost, on such a large space.
And, while I love this particular tray, it does not have to be a tray. A large platter or low box or low edged basket works well too.

I'm still in the process of tweaking and editing my little home. Trying to only put out the things that I truly love. Trying to add more color. Above are two of my favorite pieces in the house, my pine hutch and my thrifted dining table and chairs.
I got the hutch wholesale years and years ago from a friend that had a shop here in town. I still love it. The table I found at an antique mall, a booth that was closing out. Don't be a hater when I tell ya I practically stole it at $49.00. The chairs....Estate Sale, a mere $15.00 each.
But this was not an overnight thing...the table sat in the garage for ages, until I found the chairs. Patience is the key. I love the pink and it adds a funky touch. Or weirdness. However you want to call it. But I love those shabby pink shutters, another antique mall find.
Here is my disclaimer...I don't profess to be a great decorater, but I learned allot of things from my Mom and my Aunt (both of whom have had great eye for decor). I can do some things easily (arranging books shelves and table top), but arranging furniture and layout I always find difficult. But I'm always trying to learn.
Thanks for taking a peep.
