Tray-Love February 28, 2012
Yesterday, I snagged a lovely old tray, with lots of nooks and crannies. Once upon a time, it was a shiny, silver-plated number, but now, she’s sporting some treasured “patina”. Probably, from years of neglect and who knows what else. She set me back $15 and I love her! I wasn’t sure where to put her, so I took her on a home tour, taking pictures of a few other trays around the house.
What is it about trays that we love so much? For me, it’s the layering and texture that they bring to a space.
Our first stop was the kitchen island…
(If you aren’t bringing in some of the blossoms from outdoors, stop everything and go get you some! At least they’re starting to pop, out here on the west coast. I actually went out with my garden clippers, in the car, looking for these, on the side of the road!)
I don’t know if this little mirrored number qualifies as a “tray” but it works for me.
Back in the kitchen, she feels more at home.
But this is probably where she’ll spend most of her time, in retirement. She worked hard for it. Oh, I’ll give her a spin every now and then, but here, she can just relax, while keeping an eye on things.
Hoping your week is going great!
