Well, we may have (VERY LITTLE) snow outside and HOWLING winds, but I want to feel warm breezes in a tropical setting!!! I long for Spring when I can go outside and enjoy gardening and just beng outdoors. So, I bring the tropics to my kitchen. It calms me and reminds me of all the good times I have had in Florida for MANY years. The buffet area has 2 pots with greens, a palm tree vase and another vignette to the right side.

 On the oven are 2 palm tree towels.
 Going around the room to the right.... the stove area
 sink area
 some close ups: I got this palm tree lamp many years ago at WALMART!!! I fell in love with it!
 I placed my topiary in this wrought iron stand. I couldn't believe it fit perfectly!
 Found this utensil holder at Bealls outlet in Fl. It is a great store and I have found alot of palm tree things there. I also have these VERY old S and P shakers. They were my in-laws and I think they came form a restaurant that they used to go to.
 I keep a cutting board next to the stove for prep. I have many different ones:) I like how the colors in this one blend so nicely with the granite. (I still can't believe I have granite counters:):)
 Another little corner vignette.

 Dish soap and hand lotion.

 A pretty plate and another candle holder and cadle. I love lighting them at night.
 At the bar I have 2 palm tree, straw placemats.
 This is the arrangement I made several years ago. I added the sticks recently to give it more height and presence.
 Love the faux moss on it. And the other piece is a wax burner.
 On top of the fridge are 2 candlesticks and one of my favorite pieces in the middle.
Hope you have enjoyed looking around my kitchen. Soon it will be time to bring out the Bunnies!!!!!!!! I will be linking to:
