Barn & Bungalow ~ Deleted Scene

Those of you who have been faithfully following Ma Cuisine, may have noticed that I neglected to comment on a certain little scene in my barn & bungalow estate sale post.

Do you want to know why?

I thought it was too phoofy.  

Though I like the individual pieces, putting them together to add a little something next to my breakfast hutch was well, as far as I see it...a bad idea.

It's just too much.

The embossed bucket came from Seattle's Fremont Flea Market a few years ago.  It was the end of the day, and a guy almost backed into a booth with his car whilst its vendor was closing up shop.  I helped pick up some of the scattered pieces...and the gal kindly gave me the unharmed bucket!  I borrowed it from my room for this ill-conceived shot.

I think the little bread plates are sweet...but too small for the scene.  They are from Poland.  I wrote down the brand...but it's not within arms' reach and I'm all snuggled up on the couch with a snoring cat using the back of my head for a pillow.

I bought the wee plates and 4 fancy gold tumblers for my shop.

My brother was kind enough to choose a restaurant for his birthday dinner last month...smack dab in the middle of a thrifters triangle.  I had second thoughts about the glasses before buying them....but now, I absolutely LOVE them.  Even without tea lights, they beautifully capture light.

They're out in the shop now...along with the pretty white plates.  I had so much fun decorating this afternoon, that I'm looking forward to going back out tomorrow, (rather than being overwhelmed with all the work there is to do!)

I'll share pictures of the wee shop...someday...hopefully soon!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
