Little Country Vignette

DSC_0265

Happy Friday! Today I have this little country vignette to show you. It’s right above my kitchen sink in my bay window. I put this small grouping together with my rooster lamp. The lamp is very functional above my sink and also decorative. The rooster theme goes nicely with my kitchen decor.

I placed a small framed painting next to the lamp, along with a white tea pot. I had filled the tea pot with roses from the garden. The items I selected all compliment each other. The size, shape and color of the grouping work well together to create a unified look.DSC_0260

These lovely roses are form my garden! Their second blooming of this season is just spectacular!

This cute painting’s theme fits wonderfully next to the lamp! I used it in my corner cabinet here in the kitchen, but I thought it would look great where it is now. I’m always changing things around my home. Moving items here and there helps to give the items new life and also new life to the rooms or areas you move them to.

I changed this vignette a little since I took the photos with the roses. I’m sharing with you the small change I’ve made. When the roses were done looking beautiful, I added another tea pot to the vignette, along with some cups and saucers. This is the way it will look for now, unless I decide to change it for the fall.

This is a full shot of the bay window. It shows the small vignette as well as the decor on the other side. As you can see, I love the look of roosters in my kitchen. What better way to get that country feel!

  1. Your kitchen is just beautiful, LuAnn! I like both vignettes that you created, love the roses, but just might like the teapots, cups and saucer a wee bit more. What a beautiful spot to decorate.

  2. Luann, everything about your kitchen is absolutely charming–can I move in? Our tastes seem to run the same; I’m in love with white or cream decor in the kitchen, especially when it looks romantic, like your pitchers with the beautiful curving handles. I like my decor to coordinate, too, so that the eye can rest and enjoy the entire theme. Love your roosters!! I’m searching for a stone looking one like yours– any idea where I may be able to locate one? Also, I just have to know the name of those magnificent roses–stunning and I love the color.

    • Thank you Bobbi! Our tastes are a lot alike! Your comments are wonderful! The Roses are David Austin Roses and the name of them are Princess Alexandrea of Kent…Good thing the tag was left on them. That’s thanks to my hubby who planted them for me last year! Did you try e-Bay or Amazon for the roosters…you might be lucky to find one. Good Luck!
      Happy Labor Day!

  3. I love a bay window! It makes your kitchen look so spacious. I am a rooster fan too . The lamp is perfect compliment. For what ever reason here in NJ the flowers have not been very good this year. Your roses are lovely.

    • Thank you Jeanette for your visiting my post today and for your lovely comment! The lamp adds some light and charm to my bay window. Some of our flowers didn’t do as well either. The hydrangeas had to be cut all the way down in the spring. They came back nice and full but no blooms, maybe next year.
      Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

  4. Hi, Luann. Thank you so much for the info. on locating the roosters and for the name of your gorgeous roses–I wondered if they were of the David Austin family. I live directly next to world famous Longwood Gardens and walk there almost every day. Their displays are ever changing and just breathtaking. We just moved into our latest home about 8 months ago, and with all we’ve had to put together on the inside I haven’t done much yet on the outside, so I’m thrilled to be able to enjoy Longwood. What do you use to fertilize your roses–they are so healthy looking, as are all the flowers you’ve shown.

    • Hi Bobbi! The only thing we used was some Miracle Gro in the Spring believe it or not. I think the soil they are in is perfect for them. I did spray them with an insecticide though. I also use Scott’s Lawn Service here and they fertilize the grass, trees and shrubs…maybe that has something to do with my flowers looking so good. It must be wonderful to walk to the gardens! I googled them. Wow! They look beautiful! You are lucky to be so close!

  5. Luann I am in love with your kitchen, trying to decide how to redo mine and I think I will place the color combination on the list. I also have rooster theme and I think I could pull that color skim off. Thanks for sharing.

    Cathy <;)

    • Hi Cathy! Thank you for your lovely comment and for liking my kitchen. I have had my blue cabinets since we built the house 25 years ago. The color was my favorite then and still is today. Good luck with your kitchen redo!
      Have a great week!
      LuAnn 😉

  6. Thank you so much for the info. on the fertilizer for the roses–really appreciate that. We’ll see if mine turn out as beautiful as yours–hope so.

  7. Hello Luann, I love your Vingnette you have created, the colors are wonderful, so much that I am sharing it this weekend in our Weekends Are Fun Party. I do hope you can stop by and share other links. Our party starts at 11:00 PST 9-4

    • Thanks Charlene for your lovely comment and for viewing my post! I just have a soft spot for roses and teapots… I’m very grateful for my bay window. It’s size makes it easy to decorate.
      Have a lovely week!
      LuAnn 😉

  10. What a lovely vignette! It looks gorgeous with the roses and with the teacups. I like how you can change it round for the seasons. It really does suit your kitchen and I just love your wonderful rooster lamp. Thank you for sharing with the Hearth and Soul hop. Pinned and will tweet 🙂
