Spring Updates in the Kitchen

 
  I recently found this adorable pair in the thrift store.  The saleswoman suggested that they might be sundae cups, but I had other plans!

   
  My plan was to use my thrift store finds to update this shelf in my kitchen.  Although I like the current setup, I wanted to brighten the shelf up for Spring.



 
  I planted some oregano in each of my cups and switched out one of the pitchers hoping for a fresher look.


 
Hmm... still not sure if I like it.


  I played around with the grouping a little more until I came up with this.





 I am pleased!  The natural accents add the perfect touch of spring!
