A small addition with a big effect.....

Monday evening, Jos and I went over to IKEA which is only minutes from our home. I had been wanting to buy the Fintorp kitchen rail with hooks for some time. We already had my wall with my collection of speculaas cookie molds (click for post on my previous blog) in the kitchen...


We bought two and connected them to one long rail. I hung some of my Brixton baby mugs. I just love these mugs with their homemade look...


I also hung the stitched tea towel I won in Willy's giveaway recently. I just love it and have two of these towels to make more to match. Thank you once again Willy...


It is a small addition to my little kitchen but I love the big impact it has made to give it a country feel...

  1. Very nice look for your mugs. My favorite mugs are at the cottage, the ones with birds on them.
    Keep having fun finding new things.
    Love, Mom

  3. Heidi, wat een goed idee. Het maakt de keuken nog meer gezellig en geeft ruimte in de kast.

  5. I've wanted a rail for some time too for my sewing room. I love what you did with this. It gave me the idea to maybe do it in my kitchen instead for our teacups that are from Larry's grandmother and are just one of each design. I think we have four of them and the saucers and their buried in the china cabinet right now. I love the country feel and I think this is one reason I love your home so much...it's cozy and feels like home to me! Hope today brings a smile to your face. :)

  6. What a great way to hang your mugs. I wish there was an IKEA close by, I've never been to one!

  9. Ooh, I love that rail. I think that will have to be on my IKEA list! I have some favorite mugs that I would love to hang in my kitchen, instead of being hidden in a cabinet.

  10. Heidi, I have missed your blog. I lost track of where you went, which isn't a good excuse, but I'm so happy to find you again. Would you believe I haven't been to IKEA yet? Maybe over Christmas I'll finally get the chance. So happy to see you still decorating - very lovely and inspiring.

  11. Heidi - I love these mugs. Perhaps I can use one when I sit in my corner of your garden? We can stitch and laugh and sip tea! It's a beautiful addition to your kitchen!
