I love how everyone has their own touch and styles in their own kitchens, with colors, dishes, and the little things they collect that make them happy!

I have two open shelf areas in my kitchen. One is more practical – for my every day dishes. One is more for display – for the things I love!

When company comes, I use the top bowls for appetizers, and then sometimes we pull out the espresso cups for dessert time. It’s also fun to have a variety of pitchers to grab for quick use.

When I find things that I love at yard sales or Good Will, like this quaint clear pitcher, I like to display it.

I’d love to hear what you collect in your kitchen? What little things make you – you? Do you collect roosters, fruit, antique glass or canisters? Salt and pepper shakers? Or white dishes?
