Milk and Cream Company

Happy Middle of the Week.   
I went to a show a few weeks ago with a friend and I found this sign that I absolutely fell in love with.  I originally bought it to come home and be put on my kitchen island but it was too big.  So that started a whole thing to find a place for it.  




I was determined since I loved it so much.
This is the sign.  I just fell hard for it the minute I saw it and knew I needed to add this to my french farmhouse kitchen.  It was just so big and I do not have a lot of wall space left in my kitchen.







This is how this wall use to look which I loved but I needed wall space for that sign.  I took the flower drying rack down and the birdhouse and old frame.







I had Terry put the sign up on this wall for me.  Oh how I love that man.  He has tools and knows how to use them. LOL!














A little rearranging and I now have my new Milk and Cream sign.  I had a few old creamery bottles to add up on the shelf.




The old creamery bottles are aqua blue to add a little pop of color to the shelf.



After I did up this post I found this great Farm Fresh milk crate with the antique bottles and holder from a little shop I frequent.  So now I have this new piece to add to the vignette.














I was just admiring Kelly from The Essence of Home's crate collection and I was telling her how I have been looking for a unique vintage milk crate myself. If you did not see Kelly's post on her fabulous crates you can go here.  Good Karma for me after leaving Kelly that comment on her post,  I found this one today.










Found a new place for the little chippy ladder made into a flower drying rack.
I am happy I could relocate this ladder drying rack to another place in the kitchen.  Love to dry flowers on this unique piece.









Fits right in over my kitchen sink.





Hope your week is going great.  Please come back on Saturday for Spotlight.  Susan and I have two special bloggers for you to get to know.
Thanks for your visits.
Kris

  15. Kris, I love your kitchen. The little ladder does look cute there. The sign fit perfectly where Terry hung it. Oh now about that hunk Terry...there's a show on TV called the Red Green show...he is always saying, if you can't be handsome, you better be handy....you lucked out and got both, a handsome & handy man. Me too girl. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  28. Kris----Getting a little "racy" there with the Terry and his tools remark, aren't you? LOL! I LOVE THAT SIGN! Seriously LOVE IT! It is perfect in your kitchen and I really like the way it looks with the things moved around to make room for it. Kris- You just have the best luck finding things..including your new CRATE! I think good things come to you because you are such a good person and so giving yourself.

    1. Hi Kristy,
      Yep I did get it from you at Mary's Main Street market. Love love love that sign. I see you are selling one like it on Etsy. We sold that house recently and have moved into a new home. I do not have the wall space so my daughter put it in her farmhouse kitchen and it looks awesome. I miss that sign but it has a new home and looks fabulous.
