New Kitchen Accessories

Today, I'm super in love with my new kitchen rug! I saw this beauty at Southern Vintage (blogged about here ) back in the fall, and every trip after that I had to practice self control, because I had just purchased a kitchen rug, but I always needed wanted "that" rug. Sadly, they had their final sale this weekend and closed shop. Hopefully, they're just moving to a smaller building and not really closing for good. We all know when a shop is closing there are usually good sales. I was so excited on the way there, and hoped "my" rug was still available, and to my surprise it was! I quickly snatched it up before anyone else could even ponder the thought of using her in their home.
It was love at first sight! I was worried about my 70's cabinet color against the jute, but decided love overpowered worry, and went with it anyway. Hopefully, one day I'll paint my cabinets white.
I love the swirl design and the natural feel it has. It's a keeper!
I'm sure you know what happened next, my new rug got me inspired to change up a few more things. I also found these super cute striped hand towels at Home Goods this weekend.
Of course, I had to explain to all the men in my house they're really off limits.
And, finally Target had (2) clear canisters, so I brought them home with me as well to store flour and sugar. I originally had stainless steel canisters, but those were leaving rust rings on my counter tops.
I'm using teacups that match my china as scoops, which I also
 have displayed in my kitchen hutch here.
I'm off work the rest of the week (Yaaaay) and aim to get lots done to show you guys! Thank you so much for stopping by, and don't forget to let me know what you think!

  2. I <3 your striped towels and flour canisters. I've seen some tutorials on glass etched labels or chalk board labels which would be neat on your jars!

    1. Thank you, Michele! Coincidentally I had thought about chalk board labels too, I'll be checking Etsy on that!
