Paring Down Kitchen Decor for Winter

After removing all the Christmas decor, I always pare down in the kitchen quite a bit. I bring out some of the pottery pieces that I have collected over time.
As a side note, my Joe had open heart surgery last Tuesday. He had to have his aortic valve replaced. To say I was a nervous wreck the day of surgery is a VAST understatement!!!! I almost lost it when we were in pre op but I held it together for HIM. Thanks God I have a wonderful best friend who came down to be with me while he was in surgery. He did SOOOO well, he just amazes me. I brought him home on Friday!!!!! He continues to do very well. Thank you, God!
Now back to the kitchen: It looks SO weird when everything is put away and the counters are bare:) But a good cleaning is in order when everything is put away.

 Then I start to add some decor.
 I created this little vignette. I like a lot of textures in the winter to cozy things up. The iron lamp has a wicker lampshade. The plant is in a pottery container and a small covered pottery jar completes the vignette. The other greens hide the lamp cord.

 I used to travel to juried craft shows to collect my pottery.
 I bought the arrangement of faux succulents years ago because I could not make it for what I paid!
 And I love the container it is in.
 A pottery piece serves as my utensil holder.

 Over on the buffet area I placed my antique scale in the center. I added two rattan chargers and 2 pottery pots with greenery. The chargers are hiding the Echo thing:)

 I am sorry some of these pics are dark but it has been cloudy and dreary for days:( Except of course while I was at the hospital each day:):)
 Over here I put some collected pine cones in my candle hurricane and a sweet smelling candle on an iron stand. I love to burn candles, even in the daytime, in the winter.
 Over in this spot where I always have some sort of arrangement, I have this large pottery vase filled with sticks and grasses.
 I did a little vignette on the kitchen bar too.
 I filled this pedestal basket with different orbs, orange slices and seed pods.
 On these iron and rattan candle sticks I placed rope orbs.

Thanks so much for your visit!
